Focus Features has moved the US release of writer/director Edgar Wright’s next film, The World’s End, up nearly two months.
The film, starring Simon Pegg and Nick Frost, will now be released on August 23 instead of October 25.
The story for The World’s End centers on five childhood friends (played by Pegg, 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 film is still expected to open in the UK on August 14.
