Movie Details

Three residents of a 1950s-era U.K. town experience apocalyptic events that transport them 50 years into the future, where they encounter a trio of time travelers who inform them that their entire lives were a work of fiction created by a popular comedy troupe called The League of Gentlemen. Saucy German Herr Lipp (Steve Pemberton), psychotic butcher Hilary Briss (Mark Gatiss), and unassuming businessman Geoff Tipps (Reece Shearsmith) were fleeing fireballs in fictional Royston Vasey when they ran into a church crypt, and emerged a half-century later in the real town of Hadfield. Later, as the hapless time travelers struggle to get their bearings, they encounter posh zookeeper Edward (Shearsmith), mysterious Tubbs (Pemberton), and imposing voodoo chief Papa Lazarou (Shearsmith) - who shock them with the news that they and their hometown are, in fact, entirely fictional. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi
