Simon Pegg, Nick Frost, and Edgar Wright’s “The World’s End” may or may not be coming to you sometime next year. Since the film has been in the works for a while, 2013 sounds like a pretty fair bet. After all, it’s not like we’re talking about a $100 million dollar, special effects-heavy film here. It’s about a couple of guys drinking themselves to death in a series of pubs, right? Maybe.
Frankly, I’m still not sure what the hell this movie is about, but maybe this helpful synopsis will prove, well, helpful:
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.
Apparently the apocalypse may or may not be involve. Eh, who knows with these wacky guys.
Starring Simon Pegg, Nick Frost, Rosamund Pike, Martin Freeman, Paddy Considine, and James Marsan. For now, anyway. They keep adding to the cast, so we’ll see how else signs up by 2013. Until then, check out the new poster for the film, check it outers.
