I couldn’t be more excited for The World’s End, Shaun of the Dead director Edgar Wright’s new movie starring Simon Pegg, Nick Frost, Rosamund Pike, Martin Freeman, Paddy Considine and Eddie Marsan. From its’ Stephen King-like premise to the cast to the fact that Wright has never let me down. And now, it’s hitting a full two months earlier with a new release date of August 23rd (up from October 25th).
In the film, “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.”
Yes, August 23rd is also the same weekend You’re Next comes out. Please save your money and see both films folks, you won’t regret it (at least I doubt you’ll regret it with World’s End – since I haven’t seen it yet).
