Follow-up to 'Shaun Of The Dead' and 'Hot Fuzz' opens in cinemas on July 19
A new TV spot has been released for The World’s End: the new sci-fi comedy reuniting Simon Pegg and Nick Frost. Scroll down and click ‘play’ to watch the action-packed teaser.
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. As their drinking marathon progresses, events take an apocalyptic twist and the group becomes humankind’s only hope for survival.
Alongside Pegg and Frost, the film’s ensemble cast includes Sherlock star Martin Freeman, The League Of Gentlemen‘s Reece Shearsmith and former Bond girl Rosamund Pike. Meanwhile, Rafe Spall and Paddy Considine are both back from Hot Fuzz.
Edgar Wright shot the film between September and December last year at various locations in the Hertfordshire towns of Welwyn Garden City and Letchworth, including numerous local drinking dens. The World’s End open in UK cinemas on July 19 before getting a US release on August 23.
