A pair of new images have been released from the highly anticipate third movie in director Edgar Wright‘s Blood and Ice Cream trilogy, titled The World’s End. It of course follows previous hits Shaun of the Dead and Hot Fuzz.
The movie once again stars Simon Pegg as Gary King, a man holding on tightly to his younger years, and Nick Frost as his former best friend and current successful lawyer Andy. Along with fellow childhood friends played by Martin Freeman (The Hobbit) as estate agent Oliver, Paddy Considine (Cinderella Man) as architectural consultant and former rocker Steven, and Eddie Marsan (Sherlock Holmes) as a car dealer named Peter, they will reunite and set off to accomplish something they had attempted two decades earlier.
Continue on below to read a synopsis and check out the two new images, including one that looks a little more fitting to the apocalyptic events many believe will take place in The World’s End.
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.
The new images come courtesy of Empire, who also include an interesting quote from Pegg, who says “When you’ve seen the film, you’ll be able to relate each pub name to what happens inside,” speaking of the group of interestingly named pubs we saw listed on an early poster. One can only imagine what goes down inside some of them.
