The World's End

Opens Aug 23

Posted on

Edgar Wright’s previous comedies Shaun of the Dead and Hot Fuzz both featured numerous scenes set in pubs. ”I remember saying on Hot Fuzz, ‘I never want to shoot in a f—ing pub ever again!”’ recalls the filmmaker. That was before Wright got the idea for the sci-fi comedy The World’s End. We know that the film involves five old friends (including co-writer Simon Pegg and The Hobbit‘s Martin Freeman) re-creating an epic pub crawl from their youth. But the director is coy about the sci-fi elements other than to say, ”Things get weirder and weirder.” Cheers!
