Simon Pegg Unveils First Poster For The World's End
Simon Pegg, Edgar Wright and Nick Frost are finally getting back together again for the third feature film in what they're calling the "Blood and Ice Cream" trilogy, which kicked off with Shaun of the Dead, led to Hot Fuzz and now brings us to The World's End. Following their usual strategy of meshing boring everyday life with crazy Hollywood genres, the movie follows a group of men reuniting 20 year after their youthful glory days to recreate an epic pub crawl…. only to run into the earth's apocalypse while they're at it.
The movie's not due until next year, but now we've got our first look at the poster, via Fandango, and a lot of hints from Pegg on his twitter feed. Take a look below.
If you've ever seen a classic English pub, or even an imitation of one, you'll recognize that wooden sign as a clear marker of booze inside-- except this time, there's also a taste of fire and brimstone going with it. The teaser poster that debuted at Comic Con seemed to list all the destination on their 12-venue pub crawl, but now we're getting down to the business of the final one, and the one where the group of friends-- as well as humanity as a whole-- will have to reckon with their fates.
Pegg, once again, plays the lead character, a 40-year-old who refuses to grow up, and he's joined by Frost, Martin Freeman, Paddy Considine, and Eddie Marsan. Though we had been told to expect The World's End next spring, distributor Focus Features has now confirmed an October 25 release date for next year, so we'll have to be a little patient before getting to catch this much-anticipated reunion.
