The World's End Synopsis

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.

Simon Pegg Really Wants To Make A Sequel To This Movie Simon Pegg Really Wants To Make A Sequel To This Movie
Edgar Wright planned The World’s End to be the conclusion of his Cornetto Trilogy with Simon Pegg and Nick Frost, so continuing this story wasn’t in the cards. Pegg, meanwhile, is crazy busy with Star Trek Beyond, which he’s co-writing and co-starring in. Could it happen eventually? Of course, but it seems like wishful thinking at the moment.

The 10 Best Movie Music Moments Of 2013 The 10 Best Movie Music Moments Of 2013
Last year was a pretty fantastic one for movie music. Directors like David O. Russell, Wes Anderson, Quentin Tarantino and Ben Affleck made not only fantastic films, but also beautifully crafted soundtracks that blended perfectly with the story and visuals on screen. As a result, 2013 had a lot to live up to, but looking back on the last twelve months reveals that this year’s crop of filmmakers were more than up for the task.

The director and the actor do have a long working relationship that dates back to the television series Spaced back in 1999, and fans have spent years wondering if the Shaun of the Dead star could end up handling Pym particles. It's a thought that somebody at Marvel must have at least considered in the last seven years, but Pegg has shut the discussion down by explaining why it would be a bad idea.

The crawl begins as a begrudging reunion of a bunch of men who are no longer friendly, but when Nick Frost, Simon Pegg and Edgar Wright are involved, fans are in for something a little spookier and more spectacular. In this case, as the night wears on, the former friends determine there is something more sinister afoot.

Simon Pegg and Nick Frost are two of the funniest motherf*ckers alive when appearing in comedy films, but this week they proved they are also hilarious when improvising musical numbers. Recently the two men popped up on the London radio program Capital Breakfast, joining hosts Dave and Lisa, in order to talk about their new movie The World’s End. They also ended up performing a rendition of Daft Punk’s hit song of the summer “Get Lucky.”

The World's End opened in North American theaters last weekend, concluding what was a long and probably grueling press tour for its three stars-- Simon Pegg and Nick Frost, who appear in the film and on the poster, and Edgar Wright, the third man who is, as always, pulling the strings. The three of them have worked together since the late-90s cult sitcom Spaced, and together have created a remarkable comedic trilogy about growing up

With the release of this video, it’s also an opportune time to express appreciation for the terrific music that have backed The Three Flavours Cornetto Trilogy since its inception in 2004.

Tarantino LOVES talking over other people’s films. He chimed in on Robert Rodriguez’s From Dusk til Dawn (which he co-wrote and starred), and Eli Roth’s Hostel. And then there is the marathon session Tarantino agreed to do with Wright for the Blu-ray release of my personal favorite Cornetto Trilogy film: Hot Fuzz.

2013 has been crammed, like most years, with big-budget sequels, and two of them threequels. But there are also two, honest-to-God threequels that, at least for now, are wrapping up true trilogies. Both of them involved directors working with stars who were also co-writers, and who had been working together for years. Both of them wrapped up stories that began in the 90s.

The Cornetto Trilogy Golden Mile, Day 7: Is Edgar Wright A Great Director? The Cornetto Trilogy Golden Mile, Day 7: Is Edgar Wright A Great Director?
A great director is only as great as the person defending him. There are people who claim that Orson Welles is overrated, that Martin Scorsese hasn't made a good movie since Raging Bull … and people who say that Neveldine & Taylor are unheralded heroes and Michael Bay is the best living director. Deciding a director is "great" is a sure way to start an argument-- so that's exactly what we decided to do

The Cornetto Trilogy Golden Mile, Day 6: Is Peep Show The Next Spaced? The Cornetto Trilogy Golden Mile, Day 6: Is Peep Show The Next Spaced?
For me the answer is simple: David Mitchell and Robert Webb, the stars of the outstandingly funny sitcom Peep Show. On the surface this show actually has a lot in common with Spaced. It’s a Britcom with English stars that follows a pair of oft-arguing roommates who have a circle of wacky friends and a never-ending barrage of bad luck.

The world's ending, let's go to a pub! If you think that sounds a bit like Shaun of the Dead, you're not entirely off track. The World's End comes from Shaun of the Dead writer/director Edgar Wright. As the trailer indicates, the story starts out looking like a road-trip/Hangover-style story about a bunch of old friends getting together for a good old-fashioned pub-crawl. And then things go all Doctor Who, as they discover that the town has been taking over by robots.
