THE WORLD'S END - Poster and first trailer for the final chapter in the Three Flavours Cornetto trilogy

After Edgar Wright revealed the first UK quad poster for The World's End via his Twitter account a couple of days ago, today sees the release of the first trailer for the final part of what has become known as the Three Flavours Cornetto trilogy (or the Blood and Ice Cream trilogy).

Following 2004's Shaun of the Dead and 2007's Hot Fuzz, it has been a while since all three  worked on a project together, what with Hollywood calling and pulling Edgar Wright, Simon Pegg and Nick Frost in different directions. But they are now reunited for what may be their grand finale, as a nostalgic pub crawl turns into a race to save the world.

Although some things change, others stay the same, with the brand of comedy the threesome established in Spaced clear to see in this trailer. There's the familiar themes of friendship and male bonding mixed with Wright's kinetic direction; a big reveal that society is not what it first appears (the faces of the the possessed townsfolk look great) and a man failing miserably at jumping over a fence.

The World's End is released in the UK on July 19th followed by the US on August 23rd. It seems like an age away, but luckily the sight of Nick Frost using bar stools as boxing gloves will keep me going until then.
