The first US trailer for Edgar Wright’s “The World’s End” fills us in a little more on what to expect from the final installment in the Three Flavour Cornetto Trilogy, which also included “Shaun of the Dead” and “Hot Fuzz.” And that is robots, apparently.
The new preview (via Yahoo! Movies) plays out like the several we’ve seen from the UK. A group of friends reunite after years apart to complete the 12-bar pub crawl that they couldn’t finish in their younger years. The group is led by a greasy-looking Simon Pegg, and includes Nick Frost, Martin Freeman, Paddy Considine, and Eddy Marsan.
The biggest revelation from this new trailer is that it’s robots that have taken over the gang’s hometown. Earlier trailers have shown the invaders with light pouring from their eyes and mouths, but what at first looked like aliens are identified as robots in the US trailer.
