Edgar Wright’s next project, The World’s End, will be hitting theaters a lot sooner than we thought. Two months to be exact on August 23rd. This will pit it head to head with Lionsgate’s You’re Next. Wright will be teaming up once again with Simon Pegg which always works in our favor. Also starring are Nick Frost, Rosamund Pike, Martin Freeman, Paddy Considine, and Eddie Marsan.
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.
