Prepare to Get Annihilated: The World's End Trailer

By Steven Lloyd Wilson | Trailers | May 23, 2013 | Comments ()

I do love how completely against type they have all the actors playing in the film so far, with Frost playing the straight man and Pegg going the wacky route.

Of course if there has to be a criticism, I would express some reservations about the film's place wrapping up an informal trilogy with Shaun of the Dead and Hot Fuzz. Both of those films lovingly lambasted the tropes of a particular very specific genre film. This one though has got the whole pod people (albeit with robots as the villains) set up. That's a much more specific sub-genre of film to target, and not one that has been particularly popular for quite some time. Hell, the last film I can really recall that loosely fits the mold is The Watch, which was also lampooning such films, though atrociously.

But other than that concern, it looks fantastic.
