Cue Pegg’s character trying to bring back those who have died, become President of the US and grant himself a body to die for – all with disastrous results.
Along the way he calls upon his loyal dog Dennis, voiced by Robin Williams, to help him overcome the struggles that arise from his new-found powers that have been given to him by a power-crazed group of aliens.
His various mishaps finally lead to the ultimate conundrum: should he choose the girl (Kate Beckinsale) or the dog?
Williams fans will be hoping Pegg’s character comes up trumps – but they’ll have to wait until the film’s release on 14 August to find out.
Absolutely Anything also stars Joanna Lumley, Eddie Izzard and Monty Python’s John Cleese, Michael Palin, Terry Jones, Terry Gilliam and Eric Idle, who voice the extra-terrestrials.
