The first trailer for director Edgar Wright’s new film The World’s End has been released online.  The story centers on five childhood friends (played by Simon PeggNick 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 first trailer illustrates exactly what’s in the logine with just a bit more revealed to tease audiences without giving everything away.  I love Pegg’s character already as he looks and acts completely different than either of the previous iterations of the Blood and Ice Cream Trilogy.  It’s also nice to see Frost working a polar opposite from Shaun of the Dead’s Ed; I just hope Freeman gets a bigger part than his original outing.  This is going to be a long and excruciating wait.

Hit the jump to watch the trailer.  The film also stars Rosamund PikeThe World’s End will be released in the U.K. on July 19th and in the U.S. on August 23rd.

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.
