If the world were coming to an end, how would you spend your last day? If your first thought was "pub crawl," then you're of the same mind as Simon Pegg and Edgar Wright. The writing team behind Shaun of the Dead and Hot Fuzz are completing their Blood and Ice Cream Trilogy with the Armageddon-set comedy The World's End, which reunites Pegg with his frequent and funny co-star Nick Frost.
Pegg stars as Gary King, a forty-year-old adolescent who has lost touch with his boyhood pals but hopes to reconnect via the pub crawl to end all pub crawls. He convinces his old mates to visit their shared hometown for a day of epic boozing. But as they trek from one bar to the next they realize their friendship is the only thing at risk. The world itself is coming to an end all around them! Get a glimpse at some of this mayhem below, courtesy of Empire:
With their beers blocking their faces, this first image makes it a bit tricky to identify the film's stars. But thanks to a previously tweeted set still, we know that left to right this is Martin Freeman (Sherlock, The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey), Paddy Considine (The Bourne Ultimatum, Pegg, Frost, and Eddie Marsan (Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows). Notably, Freeman appeared in both the previous Blood and Ice Cream movies, while Considine had a role in Hot Fuzz. For his part, Marsan had a role opposite Pegg in Mission: Impossible III.
This second image shows Pegg frightened and alone. What kind of threat has risen to destroy the world as we know it? We'll find out when The World's End hit theaters October 25th.
