We’ve already had a poster for The World’s End, but now as a bit of a Christmas treat, Simon Pegg has tweeted the first official picture from the movie, which reunites the actor with Nick Frost and director Edgar Wright.
It’s a pic full of top British talent with Pegg and Frost alongside Martin Freeman, Eddie Marsan and Paddy Considine. Filming is now winding down, as while I’ve been writing this, Frost has tweeted, ‘I’m officially wrapped on The Worlds End. Wow. What a trip!’
Here’s the synopsis: ’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 (Pegg), 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 film hits UK cinemas on August 14th 2013.
