First trailer for Edgar Wright's The World's End goes from zero to insanity in less than two minutes

05.08.2013by:

Finally! Some people were dying to see trailers for MAN OF STEEL and THE WOLVERINE and GROWN UPS 2 (kidding...right?), but others, myself included, have been holding on tight to catch a glimpse of Edgar Wright's final chapter to the Blood and Ice Cream trilogy, THE WORLD'S END. And, here it is! Starring Wright regulars Simon Pegg, Nick Frost, Martin Freeman, Paddy Considine, Eddie Marsan, and newcomer Rosamund Pike, the trailer starts off at a subtle pace and builds to batshit crazy insanity, leaving me with only one thought: Must. See. This. Movie.

Drink Responsibly:

The synopsis is simple enough:

Five friends who reunite in an attempt to top their epic pub crawl from 20 years earlier unwittingly become humankind's only hope for survival.

As a die hard fan of Wright's, from SHAUN OF THE DEAD, HOT FUZZ, and SCOTT PILGRIM VS. THE WORLD, I'm beyond ecstatic to see his signature style back on the big screen and THE WORLD'S END looks like it fits perfectly on the bookshelf of his library. Am I a tad too optimistic? Perhaps. But, I'm cool with that.

THE WORLD'S END starts the crawl on August 23, 2013. Hell of a way to close the summer movie season, eh?

Freakin' Sweet!

I'll watch anything with these guys in it. But is it too much to ask for them to add Richard Ayoade to the cast for once. I LOVE this guy and The Watch did him no justice!

Fried Gold

Damn, this movie is going to be insanely funny! It should be a nice little bow to help wrap up this summer at the movies.
Was it just me or did anyone else find it hilarious how Martin Freeman steps out of the bathroom at the end of the trailer? I must have watched that 10 times!

I'm sorry you feel that way, and your wrong opinion is just as valid as anyone else's. But here's the sentence where I imply that your mother dropped you as an infant.

Ha, most downvotes since I've been on! But seriously, this will bomb at the box office. Come back to this comment to tell me I was right.

Warrior and Dredd Bombed at the Box Office, Twilight didn't. Are you going to say Twilight was better than those two? Also you got red on you!

I agree with you dude. The trailer for this didn't do anything for me. I didn't really laugh at all. And its pretty fuckin cliche, like I'm getting sick of all these humans fighting alien human movies now. It all started with that terrible the watch. Then this is the end, now this. I think this is the end is going to be amazing though I hear its more to the trailer then what your seeing and everything in the trailer happens in the first 20mins of the movie. So I'm down. And your not a troll LOL

There's a bit of Dark City/Knowing there with the Newton Haven denizens! I also love how Simon Pegg can't get over the fence, when he did so with great ease in Hot Fuzz. That's gotta be a shout-out. Glad to see the duo back with the director who works with them best. Paul was underrated and I think it would've been better if Wright and not Mottola was at the helm.

mr pegg

Loved me peggs work for years.

Loved spaced from its first run in ch4 and his earlier work with Steve coogan.
This looks like a great film, i really love that Hollywood hasn't went to his head and he still makes these projects with his friends.

Its s out here in the uk sooner than the us. Alot of films come out here first these days. Loving it.

Looks great. Loved Shaun and Hot Fuzz, and this looks like more of the same great stuff. Add this one to my list of Apocalypse comedies I want to see.
