A signature brew of camaraderie, knockabout humor, excessive quaffing, questionable life choices, hand-to-hand combat, and explosive surprises, The World's End reteams director Edgar Wright with actors Simon Pegg and Nick Frost, following their hits Shaun of the Dead and Hot Fuzz. The tale begins on June 22, 1990. In a suburban U.K. town, five boys in the prime of their teenage youth celebrate the end of school by attempting an epic pub crawl together. Despite their enthusiasm and the downing of a slew of pints of beer, they fall short of seeing their quest through, to the last pub on their list, The World’s End. Twenty-odd years later, “the five musketeers” reunite to hit twelve pubs in one night. As the gang attempts along the way to reconcile their past and present, an increasingly insane and dangerous series of encounters with old haunts and acquaintances makes them realize that the real struggle is for the future—not just theirs but humankind’s. Reaching The World’s End is the least of their worries… Also starring Martin Freeman and Rosamund Pike. Official Web Site
