Time Gentlemen Please! Here’s a New Trailer for The World’s End

22 May 2013 6:58 AM, PDT | | See recent HeyUGuys news »

It’s almost time for Messrs. Wright, Pegg and Frost to bring their Blood and Ice-cream trilogy to a close with The World’s End.

The final instalment of the trio of films, which began with Shaun of Dead and continued with Hot Fuzz, centers itself around a pub crawl to end all…well, all. Pegg and Frost are joined by Rosamund Pike, Eddie Marsan, Paddy Considine and Martin Freeman as a group of friends reunite to relive their boozy glory days just as an apocalypse falls out of the sky.

We’ve seen a number of trailers and posters come our way in recent weeks but this is best look yet at what we have in store. When Wright, Pegg and Frost get together it’s always an enjoyable time and with the UK release date brought forward to the 19th of July there’s not long to wait »

As Lee Mack returns for a sixth series of Not Going Out, Leo Benedictus asks if a British standup comedian has ever made a really good sitcom

Now I've thought about this carefully and I'm happy to be corrected, but I don't think a British standup comedian has ever made a decent sitcom. And this isn't because they've not been trying. Sue Perkins delivered six episodes of Heading Out in February, which will be (for some reason) released on DVD next week. Tonight, Lee Mack returns to BBC1 with a sixth series of Not Going Out, which – let's give it time – may yet show that the first five were just a lengthy warm-up.

This is starkly different from how things are in America. There, a stage career is basically an audition for one on television – or even in movies – where the fame and money is. Often the transition may even improve a comic's work, »
