Universal Pictures have unveiled the first full teaser trailer and theatrical trailer for the upcoming comedy film The World’s End. Brought to us by the same team who created Shaun Of The Dead and Hot Fuzz, this new collaboration from Simon Pegg, Nick Frost and Edgar Wright rounds off that fabled ‘Cornetto Trilogy’, featuring Pegg and Frost’s latest characters attempting to tackle twelve infamous pubs and pints within twelve hours, only to discover a looming apocalypse at the fabled ‘World’s End’ brothel!
There’s not a tonne of plot details in these first previews (below), but the trademark humour of the franchise is well and truly intact here. It will most certainly be interesting for film fans to watch how a low-budget, subtler comedy such as this fares in a Summer full of blockbuster comedies such as The Hangover Part III and Despicable Me 2, yet in this writer’s opinion there’s a strong chance of success for Pegg and Frost nevertheless.
The World’s End stumbles drunkenly into cinemas nationwide on July 19th.
