“The World’s End” is the third installment of director Edgar Wright’s trilogy of comedies starring Simon Pegg and Nick Frost, following the successes “Shaun of the Dead” (2004) and “Hot Fuzz” (2007).
In “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 by Gary King (Simon Pegg), 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 legendary 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 for theirs, but for humankind’s. Reaching The World’s End turns out to be the least of their worries.
