As production continues on Edgar Wright’s final entry into the Three Flavours Cornetto trilogy, The World’s End, we’ve got a surprise from the film today. Empire has delivered a new teaser poster for the follow-up to Shaun of the Dead and Hot Fuzz. As we know the film follows Simon Pegg, Nick Frost, Martin Freeman, Eddie Marsan and Paddy Considine as five friends who reunite for a pub crawl, and then the apocalypse occurs.
The poster certainly hints at this aspect, hinting an otherwordly aspect, as well as, in their worlds, total annihilation. In other great news, Fandango also chimes in with an official US release date for the film. It will land on October 25th, 2013, a few months after the August UK release. Check out the new teaser poster, the synopsis and the previous poster below for the film also starring Rosamund Pike.
20 years after attempting an epic pub crawl, five childhood friends reunite when one of them becomes hell bent on trying the drinking marathon again. They are convinced to stage an encore by mate Gary King, a 40-year old man trapped at the cigarette end of his teens, who drags his reluctant pals to their home town and once again attempts to reach the fabled pub, The World’s End. As they attempt to reconcile the past and present, they realize the real struggle is for the future, not just theirs but humankind’s. Reaching The World’s End is the least of their worries.
