Poster Debut: The World’s End

The teaser poster for Edgar Wright‘s latest collaboration with Simon Pegg and Nick FrostThe World’s End, has arrived a mere month before shooting officially begins.

If you’re perplexed by the seeming non-sequiturs on this one-sheet for a movie about the apocalypse, don’t be: ’tis but a listing of famous taverns.

Here’s the official synopsis:

“20 years after attempting an epic pub crawl, five childhood friends reunite when one of them becomes hell bent on trying the drinking marathon again. They are convinced to stage an encore by mate Gary King, a 40-year old man trapped at the cigarette end of his teens, who drags his reluctant pals to their home town and once again attempts to reach the fabled pub, The World’s End. As they attempt to reconcile the past and present, they realize the real struggle is for the future, not just theirs but humankind’s. Reaching The World’s End is the least of their worries.”

The trio has long described The World’s End as the final instalment of their Three Flavours Cornetto Trilogy, following on from zombie spoof Shaun of the Dead and cop-movie satire Hot Fuzz.

It hits Australian cinemas 2013.
