If THE WORLD’S END isn’t already on your moviegoing radar, it really should be. The re-teaming of director Edgar Wright and stars Simon Pegg and Nick Frost is the third installment of their “Cornetto trilogy”, though this time they’re joined be a stellar cast of the finest British performers (some of who you’ve seen in their previous films), including Martin Freeman, Eddie Marsan and Patty Considine, along with Bond Girl Rosamund Pike. Will the boys devour some Cornetto this time around? Time will tell, but man does this look fun. Check out the new trailer and tell us your thoughts in the comments.

Director Edgar Wright and actors Simon Pegg and Nick Frost reunite for a third film following the successes “Shaun of the Dead” (2004) and “Hot Fuzz” (2007). In “The World’s End,” 20 years after attempting an epic pub crawl, five childhood friends reunite when one of them becomes hellbent on trying the drinking marathon again. They are convinced to stage an encore by Gary King (Simon Pegg), a 40-year-old man trapped at the cigarette end of his teens, who drags his reluctant pals to their hometown 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 WORLD’S END opens July 19 in the UK and August 23 in the U.S.
