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.
