Edgar Wright is a filmmaker who everyone should be excited about. He managed the rare hat trick of having his first three films be very excellent AND rather successful. So when he announced one more go around with the stars of his first to films, Nick Frost and Simon Pegg, the world should have stopped for a moment and given the man a golf clap of encouragement.
Alas that didn’t happen so we are forced to go through the motions of a normal movie marketing cycle, starting with an excellent teaser poster coming soon to a theater lobby near you. These days teaser posters tend to be the superior form of film one-sheets, with studios more keen to let simplicity and the concept stand first and foremost instead of ghostly floating heads of the famous people in the movie. The teaser for The World’s End is no exception, this new poster is striking in all the right ways.
The film is about the pub crawl to end all pub crawls, literally, and this poster really nails the tone that the concept elicits. The film should be coming out some time in 2013 so the trickle of news and updates for this highly anticipated comedy should begin to flow more regularly in the coming months.
Check out the full poster after the jump.
Personally I cannot wait to get my hands on one of these to hang on my wall, this is a perfect bit of wall decoration for a hopefully fantastic new film.
