The World's End closes out the trilogy that includes Shaun of the Dead and Hot Fuzz. However, Simon Pegg revealed that this final installment is much larger in scope, and that each pub name foreshadows what happens inside.
"It's a much bigger proposition than the other two films. When you've seen the film, you'll be able to relate each pub name to what happens inside."
The pub names were unveiled with the very first poster, which you can check out here.
As laid out, the pub names do read like a list of DVD chapter stops. Let's hope we get to see a two-headed dog and a mermaid in this comedy thriller! Also of note, Simon Pegg says that there are 12 pubs. There are only 11 on the poster. Could the The World's End actually not be the final pub on this crawl? Its a mystery, indeed.
The World's End comes to theaters August 23rd, 2013 and stars Simon Pegg, Nick Frost, Martin Freeman, Paddy Considine, Rosamund Pike, Eddie Marsan, Julian Seager, Paul Kennington. The film is directed by Edgar Wright.
