The World’s End Teaser Trailer

The World's End (Pegg, Freeman, Considine)

Following on from the poster reveal, Universal Pictures have now unveiled the teaser trailer for Edgar Wright’s The World’s End.

Five childhood friends reunite at their hometown of Newton Haven after one of them, Gary (Simon Peg), attempts to recreate and finish an epic pub crawl. During their drinking marathon they realise that something is not quite right with their old town and they might be all that stands in the way of the coming apocalypse.

The trailer offers pubs, pints and explosions. There are references to Invasion of the Body Snatches and a suspiciously brief nod to War of the World’s, which all suggests that maybe they’re dealing with… aliens? Plus there is a humorous reference to Wright’s Shaun of the Dead and Hot Fuzz in regards to “taking a shortcut.” Click play below.

The film also starts Paddy Considine, Martin Freeman, Eddie Marsan and Rosamund Pike.

The World’s End opens in the UK 19 July and in the US 23 August.
