Guess the saying is correct; you really can never go home again. At least that’s what the gang in ‘The World’s End’ is thinking as a new trailer specifically aimed for American audiences has been released courtesy of Yahoo!
‘The World’s End’ centers on a group of friends who decide to get together and complete a pub/bar crawl consisting of drinking 12 pints in 12 different pubs and ending at a tavern called ‘The World’s End.’ Nothing is going to stop them this time from fulfilling this quest. Not… even… robots?
While the UK trailers for the film has made it appear as though aliens have taken over, this trailer clearly shows that it is, indeed, lower end Stepford-like Terminators that have invaded the town. Does this take away from the film? Probably not. If you’re a fan of English comedy and the films ‘Shaun of the Dead’ and ‘Hot Fuzz’ (both of which were directed by Edgar Wright and starred Simon Pegg (‘Star Trek Into Darkness’, ‘Paul’), Nick Frost (‘Snow White and the Huntsman’, ‘Paul’) and Martin Freeman (‘The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey’, ‘Sherlock’)), then this will be a devilishly fun romp of a time. Rounding off the “5 Musketeers” are Paddy Considine (‘The Bourne Ultimatum’) and Eddy Marsan (‘Jack the Giant Slayer‘, ‘The Sarah Jane Adventures’). Must admit, it’s odd seeing Frost as the straight man in the trailer but he does the role well.
Watch how the men prevent a robot apocalypse while participating in a pub crawl in ‘The World’s End’ trailer below with an introduction from the helmer himself!
In The World’s End, 20 years after attempting an epic pub crawl, five childhood friends reunite when one of them becomes hellbent on trying the drinking marathon again. They are convinced to stage an encore by mate Gary King (Simon Pegg), a 40-year-old man trapped at the cigarette end of his teens, who drags his reluctant pals to their hometown and once again attempts to reach the fabled pub – The World’s End. As they attempt to reconcile the past and present, they realise the real struggle is for the future, not just theirs but humankind’s. Reaching The World’s End is the least of their worries.
“The World’s End” opens in theaters on August 23.
