-----It takes good and evil to save the world in this adaptation of Neil Gaiman and Terry Pratchett's cult novel, starring Michael Sheen and David Tennant. Aziraphale (Michael Sheen) is a fussy angel. Crowley (David Tennant) is a loose-living demon. They ve both been on Earth for over 6,000 years. During that time they ve grown quite fond of it, and - against all odds - each other. But there s a problem: the Antichrist has arrived here on Earth, which means the world they have become too fond of will end in flames, if they don't manage to save it.

Armageddon is coming...but it doesn t have to be the end of the world.
