Oh, and Bilbo Baggins, too! I mean Martin Freeman, his altar ego. Obviously this photo is being released today, December 21st, the day the world was supposed to end (at least according to the Mayans). Sony put out a trailer for their apocalypse comedy This is the End, but this is other apocalypse comedy with Simon Pegg and Nick Frost, the finale of the "Cornetto Trilogy" (started with Shaun of the Dead and Hot Fuzz) from director Edgar Wright. The Film Stage says production has wrapped and with that comes this first look photo. Now they're heading into post-production to get it ready for release late next year. Take a look!
Edgar Wright (Shaun of the Dead, Hot Fuzz) is writing and directing The World's End, third part of the Three Flavours Cornetto trilogy, starring Simon Pegg and Nick Frost. 20 years after attempting an epic pub crawl, five childhood friends reunite when one of them (Pegg) becomes hellbent on restaging a drinking marathon and 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. Paddy Considine, Martin Freeman, Rosamund Pike and Eddie Marsan also star in the film hitting theaters on October 25th, 2013.
