Edgar Wright's THE WORLD'S END Release Date Moved Up

We often hear about release dates for films being pushed back, due to marketing reasons or undisclosed fear from a studio to go up against a competitor's film. We rarely hear about a film moving its release date up, however. Such is the case for writer/director Edgar Wright’s "The World’s End", as it just got bumped up two months, from October 25th to August 23rd. For all us Wright and Simon Pegg fans out there, this is great news indeed.

This film marks the third and final installment in the "Blood and Ice Cream Trilogy" from Wright, with co-writer/star Pegg, and star Nick Frost. The first film was the cult classic zombie spoof "Shaun of the Dead", which then continued with the rookie police-themed "Hot Fuzz".

The story for "The World’s End" follows five childhood friends (Pegg, Frost, Eddie Marsan, Paddy Considine, and Martin Freeman) embarking on a pub crawl in order to reach the famous pub, The World’s End. As the drinks keep flowing and they make their way closer to the final pub, they discover that the fate of humankind may very well rest in their shaky hands.

"The World's End" hits AMC Theatres on August 23rd.

    I see one that's great enough to stand on his own in a flick and I see two generic Super Heroes below him played by descent actors that will suck of no fault of their own. DC Entertainment and Zack piss off Snyder have destroyed any chance of a good Superman flick. It's generic and badly delivered to screen. What a tragedy to finally get to see the big 3 on screen after all these years only to watch them in piss poor dark generic looking outfits and rewritten backgrounds. FAILURE! DC Entertainment needs to pull their heads out of their asses and give us something good besides Dark Knight and Batman. To my point GO MARVEL!!!!!! May we all be laughing at DC Comics in the end for playing this awful prank on the true fans.

    Marvel has nothing to worry about. DC Entertainment has already killed Superman in this so called "Man of Steel" series of movies. Does anyone recall how the first one sucked? That movie in no way other then title had the tone of Superman. DC has shot themselves in the foot far before the release date against Marvel that knows how to build on charactors, respect them, and the fans. Before all this bull crap with revamping I was 100% behind DC Comics. They have proved one bad film over another that Batman is the only one in the JLA they can get right. This knockoff Superman is and was terrible! Wonder Woman will be just as bad or worse being that DC Comics likes to screw around with her origin and costume the most out of any DC charactor since creation. They simply just don't know what the heck they are doing or how to stay true to the roots of these heroes who have endured for 70 plus years. MOS2 may make it at the box office but mark my words it will not in any way be because it's a great flick. Just the hopefuls having to justify to themselves right and wrongs of the contents. It will suck! Line up for Captain America 3 and catch this flick in the red box.

    I've got a Baby Ruth in my coat pocket somewhere... just waiting to eat it. Maybe I'll put in a blender on puree.
