The first trailer for The World's End, the new sci-fi comedy starring Simon Pegg and Nick Frost, has been released. Scroll down and click 'play' to watch it.

The film is the final instalment in the so-called 'Three Flavours Cornetto Trilogy' from writer-star Pegg and writer-director Edgar Wright. The loose movie trilogy began in 2004 with zombie comedy Shaun Of The Dead and continued with 2007's Hot Fuzz, a spoof of so-called "buddy cop" action flicks.

The World's End follows a group of childhood friends who reunite 20 years later to repeat an "epic pub crawl" from their youth. However, as their drinking marathon progresses, events take an apocalyptic twist and the group unwittingly becomes humankind's only hope for survival.

Alongside Pegg and Frost, the film's ensemble cast includes Sherlock star Martin Freeman, Happy-Go-Lucky's Eddie Marsan and former Bond girl Rosamund Pike. Meanwhile, Rafe Spall and Paddy Considine are both back from Hot Fuzz.

The World's End was originally scheduled to open in August, but has recently had its release date brought forward and will now arrive in UK cinemas on July 19.
