The World's End Will Crawl On To Blu-ray, DVD And Digital In November
It feels like Edgar Wright’s The World’s End, a movie that marks his latest team-up with Simon Pegg and Nick Frost, just hit theaters a few weeks ago. If it seems that way to you, too, you’re not hallucinating. The World’s End hit the theater market just a little bit over a month ago, but thanks to the film’s only semi-wide release, Universal Studios Home Entertainment is putting together a fairly quick turnaround for the movie, bringing The World’s End on to Blu-ray with UltraViolet, DVD, Digital, and VOD on November 19.
The film follows middle-aged alcoholic Gary (Pegg). Gary’s a man with a goal: he wants to complete The Golden Mile pub crawl he and his friends never finished in their youth. Gary persuades five friends to embark on the crawl with him, including Peter (Eddie Marsan), O-Man (Martin Freeman), Steven (Paddy Considine), and Knightley (Nick Frost). Once they start their trip to reach the final pub known as The World’s End, they find that the journey through the pubs of their hometown might be even more difficult than expected.
The World’s End is the third installation in Wright’s Cornetto trilogy, and as such, the studiot is also putting out a separate release featuring all three movies in the trilogy. The set is called the The Ultimate Three Flavors Cornetto Trilogy and it will feature a copy of The World’s End, a copy of Hot Fuzz, and a copy of Shaun of the Dead. Having the three movies together should make for a pretty great marathon, and the set will also come with interactive screenplays for each of the three movies.
As for The World’s End sets, the Blu-ray will come with several bonus features not available with the DVD set. However, from the list it seems as if the studio just threw on every bit of footage from the making of the movie that could be found, which includes the Hair and Make-Up tests. All in all, though, comedies typically have pretty good outtakes and funny behind-the-scenes segments, so if you liked the movie, it might be worth it to spring for the more expensive Blu-ray set.
