What better way to celebrate July 4th then with some spunky Brits battling aliens that have taken over their drinking establishments? Hey, someone has to save the world, it mind as well be the Pegg/Frost boys and company (which includes the always fabulous Rosamund Pike). Check out 7 new images from Edgar Wright’s sci-fi comedy “The World’s End”.
Also, I can’t wait to see Wright finally bring this kind of goofy comedy/action to an “Ant Man” movie, which we should finally be getting in 2015. Or thereabouts.
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 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.
Starring Simon Pegg, Nick Frost, Martin Freeman, Paddy Considine, Eddie Marsan, and Rosamund Pike.
Saving the world one pint at a time this August 23, 2013.
