The World’s End Trailer–the Cornetto Trilogy Comes to a Close

The theatrical trailer for “The World’s End,” has been released. It’s the third movie in the Cornetto trilogy–the humor/genre mashups starring Simon Pegg and Nick Frost and directed by Edgar Wright that has included Shaun of the Dead and Hot Fuzz. It stars trilogy regulars Pegg, Frost, Paddy Considine, and Rosamund Pike, as well as Martin Freeman (who while not new, gets bumped up to a major role). What starts out as a bar crawl/midlife crisis turns into a disaster movie when a town is taken over by robots.

I thoroughly enjoyed the mix of humor and genre-based easter eggs found in Shaun of the Dead and Hot Fuzz, so I can’t help but think I will enjoy this one too. What do you think?
