Universal Pictures has just released the first trailer for the sci-fi comedy The World’s End. It’s from the guys who brought us Shaun of the Dead and Hot Fuzz and it looks just as funny!

The story follows five friends Simon Pegg, Nick Frost, Martin Freeman, Eddie Marsan, and Paddy Considine who reunite for a pub crawl that escalates into a struggle for humankind’s future from what looks to be a horde of alien possessed people. Here’s the synopsis:

“20 years after attempting an epic pub crawl, five childhood friends reunite when one of them becomes hell bent on trying the drinking marathon again. They are convinced to stage an encore by mate Gary King (Pegg), a 40-year old man trapped at the cigarette end of his teens, who drags his reluctant pals to their home town 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.”

The Edgar Wright directed film comes out on August 23, 2013.
