Finish your drinks

It’s here! It’s finally here! The first teaser for The World’s End, the latest collaboration between Simon Pegg, Nick Frost and Edgar Wright has finally dropped, and it’s a thing of beauty. Now, if you follow the site, you probably know that Robin, TK and I have all marked The World’s End as our most anticipated movie of the year, so it’s really no surprise that I think this looks incredible. But one thing that did surprise me – something that was kept out of the pre-trailer marketing – was the inclusion of what seem to be aliens. Now, I think having the Shaun of the Dead crew go up against an alien invasion is definitely clever and will no doubt make for a great time, but this definitely makes me think that This Is The End – a similar comedy with a similar premise and a similar name – ripped off The World’s End somehow. I dunno, maybe this is just a case like how Olympus Has Fallen shares a premise with White House Down, but man, those are some serious similarities. But there’s no question where my loyalties lie: let’s hit the pub and wait for this whole thing to blow over.

The World’s End comes out August 23, 2013.
