We all know by now that the world didn’t end today, but there is going to be a slew of end of the world movies coming out anyway. While we get to wait for trailers to come out for them all, because there is a theory for every nut out there, there is one particular movie I can’t wait to see. Its got two of my favorite actors in it, Simon Pegg & Nick Frost (Shaun of the Dead fame), but it looks hilarious.
The third installment of director Edgar Wright’s trilogy of comedies starring Simon Pegg and Nick Frost, following the successes Shaun of the Dead (2004) and Hot Fuzz (2007). In The World’s End, 20 years after attempting an epic pub crawl, five childhood friends reunite when one of them becomes hellbent on trying the drinking marathon again. They are convinced to stage an encore by Gary King (Simon Pegg), a 40-year-old man trapped at the cigarette end of his teens, who drags his reluctant pals to their hometown 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.
