'The World's End' trailer: Simon Pegg and Nick Frost want a beer, get robots

It's Simon Pegg, Nick Frost, Martin Freeman, Paddy Considine and Eddie Marsan versus the world in the new trailer for Edgar Wright's latest action comedy, "The World's End." A new trailer for the film reveals that what starts as a 20-year reunion of friends turns into something more terrifying as evil robots take over the townspeople in the group's hometown.

The trailer reveals that this film will be similar in tone to Wright, Pegg and Frost's other two cinematic outings, "Shaun of the Dead" and "Hot Fuzz." This time the effects are bigger and the plot might be more elaborate, but it's nice to see that the trio hasn't lost its touch.
