Simon Pegg and Nick Frost are joined by some of their celebrity friends as they embark on an epic pub crawl in their upcoming movie, The World's End.

The pair, who have reunited with director-writer Edgar Wright for the final film in their Three Flavours Cornetto trilogy, are seen enjoying drinks with fellow boozers Martin Freeman, Paddy Considine and Eddie Marsan in the newly-released trailer.

"Ever had one of those nights that start out like any other, but ends up being the best night of your life? I did," teased Simon.

"Our goal that night was simple - 12 pubs, 12 pints - from the first post to the World's End. But that night, we never made it."

Mark Heap, who worked with the trio on Spaced, appears as a barman while The League Of Gentlemen's Reece Shearsmith turns up as a sinister local. Former Bond girl Rosamunde Pike also makes an appearance.

Simon tweeted: "Just been informed that The World's End teaser is Universal UK's most successful trailer launch EVER!"

The sci-fi comedy, which has been directed by Edgar, will open in cinemas on July 19.

Skipping special occasions and failing to return phone calls causes resentment. You have to be more engaged to sustain loving bonds. Call someone you've missed. It may take a few tries, but it's worth the effort. Be forthright about why you have been out of touch. Communication is the cornerstone of every healthy relationship.More
