Leading man Simon Pegg has tweeted the first still from the upcoming Focus Features’ The World’s End (we’re still trying to determine if there are any genre elements to this one). Head inside for a look.
Directed by Edgar Wright and written by Wright and Pegg, The World’s End also stars Nick Frost, Martin Freeman, Paddy Considine, Eddie Marsan and Rosamund Pike. The film takes place 20 years after attempting an epic pub crawl, five childhood friends reunite when one of them becomes hellbent on trying the drinking marathon again.
They are convinced to stage an encore by mate Gary King (Simon Pegg), a 40-year-old man trapped at the cigarette end of his teens, who drags his reluctant pals to their hometown 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 film hits theaters October 25, 2013.
