Simon Pegg and Nick Frost have become a formidable comedy duo over the years, but they rise to a whole new level when paired with director Edgar Wright. Their two other collaborations (“Shaun of the Dead” and “Hot Fuzz”) are exercises in genre-specific brilliance mixed with a surprising amount of heart.
With their new movie “The World’s End” it looks like they’ve moved their winning formula from horror and action right into sci-fi with a pub-crawl-meets-“Invasion-of-the-Body-Snatchers” plotline.
This trailer looks amazing setting up a great premise, throwing in lots of gags and special effects, and then topping it all off with the formidable inclusion of Martin Freeman.
“Shaun” fans will be particularly pleased with the fence-hopping fail at the end of the trailer. If this is what the end of the world looks like then sign me up!
