The world's ending, let's go to a pub! If you think that sounds a bit like Shaun of the Dead, you're not entirely off track. The World's End comes from Shaun of the Dead writer/director Edgar Wright. As the trailer indicates, the story starts out looking like a road-trip/Hangover-style tale about a bunch of old friends getting together for a good old-fashioned pub-crawl. And then things go all Doctor Who-y, as they discover that the town has been taken over by… well, just watch the trailer.
Rosamund Pike also has a big role in the film that caps off the (very) loose trilogy of films that began with Shaun of the Dead and Hot Fuzz. .
The World's End arrives in theaters August 23, though it'll be making its UK debut before that, with a July release across the pond.
