Below, you’ll find a new preview for Edgar Wright’s The World’s End that is being called the “trilogy trailer.” It reflects on Wright’s previous collaborations with stars Simon Pegg and Nick Frost–Shaun of the Dead and Hot Fuzz–and presents plenty of new footage, though it does contain some spoilers!
In the August 23 release, 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 (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 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.
