“That’s a wrap,” he added. “See you next year.”

Directed by Edgar Wright and written by Wright and Pegg, The World’s End also stars Nick Frost, Martin Freeman, Paddy Considine, Eddie Marsan and Rosamund Pike. It’s about a group of mates who meet to re-enact an epic pub crawl from 20 years earlier. But as they near their final destination,The World’s End Pub, they realise the real struggle is for the future, not just theirs but humankind’s. Reaching The World’s End is the least of their worries.

Which means it could be an SFX film… or maybe not. Depends on how literally you read the summary. Either way, it’s Simon Pegg, so there’ll be geekiness.

The World’s End is released in the UK on 14 August 2013.
