You can forgive Simon Pegg and Nick Frost if they seem a little excited and reflective at the same time. With the arrival of their film The World’s End, it marks the end of a trilogy with filmmaker Edgar Wright that began with Shaun of the Dead and continued with Hot Fuzz. In a new featurette exploring their new film, Pegg and Frost introduce, and then add commentary with Wright, as scenes of mayhem and hilarity come at the viewer with rapid fire.
As teased in The World’s End trailer, the film features Pegg and Frost, along with three other mates (Martin Freeman, Eddie Marsan and Paddy Considine), heading back to their English countryside hometown. Their goal: To finish the pub crawl they never could when they were young. The 12 watering holes conclude with the most famous of the pubs: The World’s End.
Only thing, it could be the end of the world for our heroes as something is afoot in their little hamlet. Most of the residents have become killer robots. Death be damned, they are going to finish this pub crawl! Look for The World’s End in theaters August 23.
