Marina Antunes [Celluloid 05.22.13] United Kingdom scifi comedy

It actually took a moment of consideration to decide whether to post the new trailer for the Edgar Wright/Simon Pegg/Nick Frost sci-fi comedy The World's End. It's not that I don't want to see the movie, on the contrary, I'm all up for the boys and a romp through a pub crawl that somehow is interrupted by an alien invasion, but this trailer isn't quite as good as the first.

I probably don't need to tell you that this is the American trailer, that's pretty apparent from the inclusion of many more scenes of action and explosions. It's still good but it doesn't have the quirk of the first trailer which was running high on English-isms.

There's a new poster as well but it too is meh.

The World's End opens in the UK on July 19 which North American release will follow on August 23.

Why are American trailers so dumbed down? It's not as though they are less culturally aware as us Brits, or is it because American distributors have a contempt for their customers?
