Universal Pictures has moved the upcoming comedy The World's End from an October 25, 2013 release date to a favorable summer slot on August 23, 2013. The movie will go up against Sony's fantasy epic The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones and Lionsgate's horror-thriller You're Next on August 23. It was previously scheduled to compete with Paramount's Paranormal Activity 5 and Fox Searchlight's Baggage Claim.

Simon Pegg and Nick Frost reunite for the third and final installment of their Blood and Ice Cream Trilogy (The Three Flavors Cornetto) with director Edgar Wright, following 2004's Shaun of the Dead and 2007's Hot Fuzz.

The comedy centers on Gary King (Simon Pegg) who gets all of his old friends back together to try and compete the massive pub crawl they couldn't finish 20 years prior. Once the drinks start flowing, though, these old pals realize that the bar crawl is the least of their worries. Martin Freeman, Paddy Considine, Rosamund Pike, and Eddie Marsan also star.

Edgar Wright directs from a screenplay he co-wrote with Simon Pegg. We'll keep you posted as soon as a new trailer debuts for this summer comedy.

The World's End was released August 23rd, 2013 and stars Thomas Law, Zachary Bailess, Jasper Levine, James Tarpey, Luke Bromley, Sophie Evans, Samantha White, Rose Reynolds. The film is directed by Edgar Wright.

    THE PUB WELCOMES YOU BACK GENTS! I can't wait to see this one! The strawberry topping was a funny terror, the blueberry was a funny yet thrillingly action packed and this one's got to be topped with a mint of sci-fi and fun times.. Let the greatness roll, one last round!!!

    @corey It's also known as the Three Flavours Cornetto trilogy (which is I think the original name of the trilogy): Shaun of the Dead, Hot Fuzz and The World's End. Each film has a different flavored cornetto in it relating to the movie: strawberry in Shaun of the Dead (blood and gore) and the blue original in Hot Fuzz (blue because of the police element). And World's End is supposedly going to be the green mint chocolate chip flavor.
