I Should Be Chastised For Forgetting to Post This New The World’s End Trailer

Not that I have any oversight on my blog, or have any other expectations about what I post, but I really think I should have posted this new trailer for The World’s End sooner. The problem was that it debuted on Yahoo and I’m just not savvy enough to post videos that aren’t Youtube. I might also be a teensy bit lazy.

It’s another awesome trailer for what I’m sure will be an awesome movie. And I know I have awesome people reading my blog, so let us all share in just how awesome this movie season is going to be. Rock on.

The World’s End Trailer, My Day is Complete

The first trailer for Edgar Wright’s The World’s End launched today! Enjoy!

Considering both Shaun of the Dead and Hot Fuzz were listed as No. 3 on my list of favorite movies of all time it should come as no surprise that I am very excited for The World’s End! It’s the final part in the unofficial Cornetto Trilogy, and I can’t imagine this movie being anything less than amazing. The trio of Edgar Wright, Simon Pegg and Nick Frost is phenomenal! Though after watching that trailer, I think Pegg insisted on not being the blonde goodie two-shoes again. He looks kinda skeevy.

Any other Wright, Pegg and Frost fans in the house?

We Might Not See Ant-Man Film Anytime Soon

I’m incredibly torn by the news that director Edgar Wright is going to start production this September on his next film The World’s End. I’m torn because A.) That doesn’t sound like Ant-Man to me. And B.) because it’s the third movie in the unofficial trilogy after Shaun of the Dead and Hot Fuzz, two amazingly brilliant movies that are counted among the few movies I’ll pop in the DVD player to watch over and over again. Not very many movies hold up to excessive repeat viewing, but those two definitely do. As do their commentaries!

And according to Deadline, The World’s End will once again be co-written by Simon Pegg, and will also star Pegg and Nick Frost, the stars of Shaun of the Dead and Hot Fuzz. So the recipe is in place for The World’s End to be another amazingly brilliant film!

Damn your handsomeness, Edgar Wright!

But Wright is supposed to be working on Ant-Man! How does the $207 million opening weekend for The Avengers not light a fire under everyone’s butt to get Ant-Man into production? If you can’t tell, I’m very excited about Ant-Man.

Anyway, let us not discount the great news that we’re going to get a third film by Wright, Pegg and Frost. The World’s End is expected to be released in 2013. Here’s the description, which sounds pretty epic:

Twenty 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, 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.
