Director Edgar Wright and actors Simon Pegg and Nick Frost reunite for a third film following the successes Shaun of the Dead (2004) and Hot Fuzz (2007). In The World’s End, 20 years after attempting an epic pub crawl, five childhood friends reunite when one of them becomes hellbent on trying the drinking marathon again. They are convinced to stage an encore by Gary King (Simon Pegg), a 40-year-old man trapped at the cigarette end of his teens, who drags his reluctant pals to their hometown and once again attempts to reach the fabled pub – The World’s End. As they attempt to reconcile the past and present, they realize the real struggle is for the future, not just theirs but humankind’s. Reaching The World’s End is the least of their worries.

I am excited – the first two films from Edgar Wright and these crazy guys were great and I cannot wait for more :).

The World’s End is releasing in the UK on July 19th and the US in August 23rd but no release date for Australia as yet.

This film completes what Simon Pegg and Edgar Wright refer to as “The Blood and Ice Cream Trilogy” consisting of Shaun of the Dead, Hot Fuzz and ‘The World’s End’. It will sad to see them come to an end but as long as Pegg continues to play Scottie and basically any role then we are all safe and assured of giggles.
