The final part of Edgar Wright and Simon Pegg’s Three Flavours Cornetto trilogy was filmed at various pubs in Welwyn Garden City town centre last year and is due for release on Friday, July 19.

Hertfordshire-based actor Pegg, who plays Gary King in the film, took to Twitter today (Tuesday) to say when the official trailer can be seen.

He tweeted: “Just heard from our marketing types that the first teaser trailer for World’s End will drop on May 8th. Thank you for your patience.x”

The World’s End director Edgar Wright had tweeted last week: “And yes, since the film is coming soon, the trailer is also very coming soon. With which film you say? Have a guess...”

He also tweeted: “‘The World’s End’ is not in 3D, but I recommend you eat a mint Cornetto while watching for full sensory overload.”

The eagerly-awaited apocalyptic sci-fi comedy also stars Nick Frost, The Hobbit’s Martin Freeman, Paddy Considine, Eddie Marsan and former Bond girl Rosamund Pike and follows five childhood friends reuniting to try and attempt an epic pub crawl through their hometown – finishing at The World’s End.

It is the final part of Pegg and Wright’s trilogy following zombie rom-com Shaun of the Dead and cop buddy film Hot Fuzz.
