The World's End: 12 Pubs, 12 Pints, What Could Possibly Go Wrong? [Trailer & Pictures]

12 Pubs 12 Pints...12 Pubs 12 Pints...

The first trailer for Edgar Wright's new movie The World's End has rolled out online - and it looks a riot. The final instalment in the Blood and Ice Cream Trilogy (Shaun of the Dead, Hot Fuzz) follows Gary King, a 40-year-old looking to reclaim the glory of his teenage years by vowing to complete the infamous Newton Haven pub crawl that he and his pals failed to finish 20 years ago. The problem lies in the fact that his friends are now middle class, comfortably living blue collar workers: why would they possibly agree?

Ok, so they do agree in the end and return to their hometown to tackle the twelve pubs, the last of which is The World's End. While being careful to avoid passing busses (clever Danny Cipriani joke), the boys head out onto the streets though soon become aware of the fact that everything is not what it seems. The townsfolk are behaving oddly and the gang are tasked with saving their home from a threat of galactic proportions. 

The World's End was written by Wright and main star Simon Pegg. It stars a solid British cast including Paddy Considine, Martin Freeman, Rosamund Pike, Eddie Marsan, Nick Frost and David Bradley. It seems the movie continues some of the running jokes from the previous movies, including the garden fence gag.

It hits cinemas everywhere on July 19, 2013.
