Okay so I know this trailer came out like a week ago but I’ve had several things to sort out which has prevented me from talking about it. But now I’m free so let’s talk about The World’s End trailer yo!
Check out the trailer below:
So what I’m getting from this trailer a group of five friends went for a pub crawl in their younger days but never got to their final destination, so twenty years later Simon Pegg gathers up Nick Frost, Martin Freeman and the other two guys to try and do it all over again and reach the fabled pub, The World’s End. But it seems like things have changed a great deal since their last time and now all these crazy happenings are going down. Cool.
When I read the synopsis for this film I wasn’t sure what to expect but this trailer really surprised me. It starts out a little dull but really picks up once the alien element comes into play and there’s all this violence and madness going down.
I just love how ridiculous and over-the-top this looks. There’s all these alien-like people who remind me of the people in Invaders of the Body Snatchers, Nick Frost hitting people with bar stools, cheerleaders, people getting hit in hilarious ways, explosions a woman rugby tackling someone in an epic fashion. All of this screams crazy to me and at the same time it is SO Edgar Wright. The jokes, the style of dialogue and action is all his style of work. I love that bit at the end when Simon Pegg tries to jump that fence only for it to fall down, that was a great reference to Hot Fuzz and I’m hoping for more in-jokes like that in the rest of the film too.
In the end this trailer looks pretty fun and makes me pretty excited for the film. Edgar Wright has yet to make anything I didn’t like so I’ll be hopefully seeing this on opening day if life will permit me lol.
