Edgar Wright, the filmmaker behind zombie comedy Shaun of the Dead and romantic gamer flick Scott Pilgrim vs. the World, has a new comedy out this summer called The World’s End. But since this is an Edgar Wright movie, it’s of course not your typical end-of-the-world apocalypse story.
When five friends reunite and attempt to top their epic pub crawl from 20 years earlier, the name of the final pub on their list, The World’s End, starts to take on a literal meaning. Finishing the pub crawl becomes the least of their worries, as the real struggle becomes saving mankind.
Check out The World’s End‘s newest trailer, which features Simon Pegg, Nick Frost and more Brits fighting (or attempting to fight) robots, below:
The World’s End, which also stars Martin Freeman, Paddy Considine, Eddie Marsan, and Rosamund Pike, opens Aug. 23.
