Are you ready for the Golden Mile? The famous pub crawl in the quiet BRitish town of Newton Haven has gotten the best of many over the years, but next week five friends are going to reunite and give it another shot-- and you're invited to join them on their quest, which will be unlike any pub crawl you've actually seen before. In The World's End, director Edgar Wright reunites with stars Nick Frost and Simon Pegg for yet another genre mash-up, combining the nostalgia for high school years with a surprising revelation that bucolic Newton Haven has been overtaken by… robots.
How they fight the robots and escape intact is part of the adventure in The World's End, which wraps up the Three Flavours Cornetto trilogy that started with Shaun of the Dead and Hot Fuzz. And if you're as excited for The World's End as we obviously are, we've got the perfect prize pack to send your way. One lucky reader will receive a $100 Visa gift card (for use on a night out with friends, of course), along with a Golden Mile T-shirt, a pint glass, and a double-feature Blu-ray of Shaun of the Dead and Hot Fuzz, perfect for marathoning before you go see The World's End. You can see (sadly low-res) image of all the prizes, along with a better one of the pint glasses, below.
In addition, three runners up will get the T-shirt and the pint glass, which should serve you well on your own pub crawl adventures.
