We’ve got a couple of new images from The World’s End, Shaun of the Dead and Hit Fuzz director Edgar Wright’s new movie that stars Simon Pegg, Nick Frost, Rosamund Pike, Martin Freeman, Paddy Considine and Eddie Marsan.
The images (screen-grabs from a promo clip) sort of reveal Simon Pegg’s character to be the wild ringleader of the group, definitely holding onto “the cigarette end of his teens” as described in the synopsis. I know this is a slight update, but I’m just incredibly excited for this movie. To make it up to you – you can watch about 4 seconds of the movie below (in two small chunks during a minute-long summer presentation reel – your choice).
In theaters August 23 2013, “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.“
