Well this makes things interesting…

If there has been more official information leaked or released about the nature of The World’s End since the teaser poster¬†and original synopsis, I certainly haven’t seen it. That description of the film only pointed towards a vague “threat to mankind” while the general impression seemed to be of an apocalypse.

This poster suggests mankind’s end may be coming from the stars, as the army of glowing-eyed people and backdrop of stars and falling meteorites. Those do look like humans, so maybe a body snatchers-style threat? The explicitly scifi angle certainly makes sense to round out the genre-focused Cornetto trilogy. In any event, we’ll find out more once the trailer hits later this week!

Naturally an interstellar threat will make this and This Is The End even more uncomfortable bedfellows this year…
