On August 23, director Edgar Wright, Simon Pegg and Nick Frost reunite for a third film following the successes Shaun of the Dead and Hot Fuzz. 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 Gary King (Pegg), a 40-year-old man trapped at the cigarette end of his teens, who drags his reluctant pals to their hometown, Newton Haven, 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.
Focus Features is launching a virtual crawl that will introduce all 12 bars featured in the film!
