The World’s End (Trailer #1) Review
Edgar Wright, Simon Pegg and Nick Frost return for the final chapter in their Cornetto trilogy, Shaun of the Dead, Hot Fuzz and now The World’s End. I heard about this film last year and I didn’t really know what it was about but knew who was involved and was really excited. Little did I know that the film was about a pub crawl that ends with an alien invasion, dear god a comedy alien invasion film is so my type of film! The trailer looks great and I have laughed quite a bit at the various jokes and I am sure it will be great, even the invasion looks great, and a skit of Invasion of the body snatchers but in Edgar Wright style love it. I can’t wait and neither should you, hope you enjoy the review and leave your extremely positive comments at the end.
My Score: A
Release date: 19th July 2013
Five childhood friends reunite after twenty years to repeat a legendary pub crawl from their youth (which they originally failed) returning to their hometown once again to attempt to reach the fabled pub “The World’s End”. Over the course of the night, they begin to realise that the real struggle is “not just theirs but humankind’s”, and completing the crawl becomes the least of their worries ‘tonight we are going to get totally annihilated’.
Top 8 Scenes
8. Edgar’s Style
Weird shots of people standing still or staring are featured in all of the Cornetto films and I always laugh at it. It makes no sense and its crazy but I love it and really want to watch Shaun of the Dead and Hot Fuzz.
This is the look people in my cul-de-sac give to anyone new in the neighbourhood. It’s so simple and yet so creepy! You instantly feel that these few guys are now alone surrounded by enemies and I think it will really add to the comedy scenes.
6. Body Snatchers with Lights
It’s got that classic Body Snatchers scream face but with a twist BLINDING LIGHTS!!! That would be terrifying in dark woods but also when chasing Simone Pegg it’s so funny.
5. Fire Balls
Wow the visuals in this look surprisingly good! This is just an example but the whole trailer shows off some impressive CGI and practical effects. None of the other films have been over $10M so I doubt this will either.
4. The Fence Gag
Oh you silly boys and stupid slap stick gags, I am one of those silly boys so give me more.
3. Run Fat Boy Run
Got to be quick when the aliens come to get you, those bastards move quick.
2. Double Bird Flip
At this stage of the trailer it’s moving so quick I don’t know what’s happening, but I love that for one random moment Pegg is just putting up two middle fingers.
1. Stool Boxing
What?! At what point does somebody decide to use two stools to beat people up, I am laughing because I am assuming they must be drunk at this stage of their pub crawl. Frost you crazy fool.
Well that’s my views. Now what do you think about this newest trailer?
