The World’s End
Date posted: 17.07.2013
Gary King (Pegg) should have been careful what he wished for as he persuaded his childhood friends Andy (Frost), Steven (Paddy Considine), Oliver (Martin Freeman), and Peter (Eddie Marsan) to retry the pub crawl they attempted 20 years ago that includes 12 pubs and finishes at The World's End. However, the five friends and Oliver's sister Sam (Rosamund Pike) fear they may reach the world's end sooner than expected when they realize their hometown has been taken over by robot aliens.
From September to December of last year, locations throughout the capital including the Wenlock Arms in Hackney and Gunnersbury Park in Hounslow became parts on the fictional alien infested English town of Newton Haven. Situated near the Wenlock Basin on Regent's Canal, the historic Wenlock Arms pub became a stop on the cast's epic pub crawl. Shooting also took place at the Blue Fin building adjacent to Tate Modern, which has over 2,000 aluminum fins on its exterior. In addition, street scenes were taken at Manor Way, Albert Way and the Gallions Reach pumping station in Newham.
Look out for disguised robot aliens and green mint ice cream in cinemas on 19 June.
