Two new images have been released for Edgar Wright‘s The World’s End.  The story centers on five childhood friends (played by Simon Pegg, Nick Frost, Eddie Marsan, Paddy Considine, and Martin Freeman) going through an epic pub crawl in order to reach the fabled pub, “The World’s End”.  But as they make their way to the pub, they discover that the fate of humankind is on the line.  The movie closes out the “Blood & Ice Cream” Trilogy started by Shaun of the Dead and Hot Fuzz, but “It’s a much bigger proposition than the other two films,” says Pegg, who co-wrote the film with Wright.  There are twelve pubs on the crawl (you can see them listed on the Comic-Con poster), and Pegg tells Empire Magazine, “When you’ve seen the film, you’ll be able to relate each pub name to what happens inside.”  Your guess is as good as mine for what happens inside “The Famous Cock”.

Hit the jump to check out the images.  The World’s End will be released in the U.K. on August 14, 2013 and in the U.S. on October 25, 2013.

Here’s the official synopsis for The World’s End:

20 years after attempting an epic pub crawl, five childhood friends reunite when one of them becomes hellbent 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 hometown 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.
