The first teaser poster for director Edgar Wright’s The World’s End has been released.  The film reunites Wright with stars Simon Pegg and Nick Frost, and acts as the third installment in the trio’s “Blood and Ice Cream Trilogy” after Shaun of the Dead and Hot Fuzz.  Written by Wright and Pegg, the story centers on five childhood friends 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.  This poster teases, well, the end of the world, as a devastating event looks to be headed Earth’s way.  Wright and Pegg previously admitted that the film’s genre could be classified as “social sci-fi,” so this poster certainly fits that description.  I’m not sure if it hints at some otherworldly antagonist or if it’s just a play on humanity’s impending doom, but if the fate of the world lies in the hands of Pegg and Frost, at least we know we’ll go down laughing our asses off.

Hit the jump to check out the poster.  The film also stars Rosamund Pike, Martin Freeman, Paddy Considine (Hot Fuzz), and Eddie Marsan (Sherlock Holmes).  The World’s End will be released in the UK on August 14th, 2013 and in the US on October 25th.

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 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.
