The World's End is having it's UK release date brought forward by a full month! Happy days!
Good news comedy fans, because the final edition of the Cornetto trilogy (Shaun of the Dead, Hot Fuzz) The World's End is going to be released a month earlier than initially planned. The movie's director and co-scribe Edgar Wright delivered the good new this morning via his Twitter, with the news being confirmed by Universal Studios shortly after.
Simon Pegg and Nick Frost will wrap-up the Cornetto trilogy this summer.
Here what will happen; 20 years after trying to complete the pub crawl to end all pub crawls, five childhood friends return to their hometown when the idea to complete the drink run comes up again when one of the friends becomes hellbent on finishing marathon drinking session at long last. The leader of the pack, Gary King (Simon Pegg), is a 40-year-old man who convinces his reluctant mates to return home so they can attempt the crawl in a bid to finally reach the fabled pub at the end of the run– The World's End. During the pub run the friends attempt to reconcile their past as well as making amends with present, when they realize the real struggle is not just reaching the end of the crawl, but the future of mankind itself.
As well as Pegg and, of course, Nick Frost, Martin Freeman, Paddy Considine, Eddie Marsan and Rosamund Pike co-star in the film. The World's End will hit up UK theaters at the earlier time of July 19, with the movie arriving in North America on August 23, as originally planned.
Edgar Wright will be writing with Pegg again.
