As they attempt to reconcile the past and present, »

If you're a fan of Edgar Wright's "Three Flavours Cornetto Trilogy" (Shaun of the Dead, Hot Fuzz and the upcoming The World's End), then we suggest keeping tabs on the director for the next month or two as he's having a bit of fun looking back on both Shaun and Fuzz prior to the release of The World's End. Over at his official website, Wright posted images from a deleted scene in Shaun of the Dead that hilariously featured a bunch of zombie kids eating the ice cream man instead of his ice cream. Wright explains, "Here’s a morsel of a deleted scene. I had seen an ice cream van with the amazing slogan ‘Often Licked, Never Beaten’ and had the idea to see zombie kids snacking on an ice cream man. We shot it from inside the Jag...

Two new posters have been released for The World’s End, the long-gestating and highly anticipated last instalment in what will probably stand as the greatest British movie threesome of all time – The Three Flavours Cornetto Trilogy. Composed of the aforementioned The World’s End, along with buddy cop movie Hot Fuzz and rom-zom-com Shaun of the Dead, The Three Flavours Cornetto Trilogy is so-named because each film features a scene in which a Cornetto is consumed. That’s it.
The posters were released on the film’s co-writer and star Simon Pegg’s official website, and also that of the film itself. Both are reproduced below for your safety and convenience:
The topmost poster is the UK version, with the earlier release date and landscape format. There’s more plot spoilers in the Us poster than the UK poster, which alludes more directly to the route the story will »

One of the more highly anticipated films of the summer has nothing to do with superheroes or giant explosions. Instead, it’s movie about friendship. Writer/director Edgar Wright, co-writer/star Simon Pegg, and star Nick Frost have developed an incredibly fruitful working relationship over the years since their first collaboration on the TV series Spaced, and this summer sees the release of the final film in the trio’s “Three Flavours” trilogy that began with Shaun of the Dead and continued with Hot Fuzz. The story of The World’s End revolves around five childhood friends who decide to re-attempt an epic pub crawl that will culminate in reaching the fabled pub, “The World’s End.” But as they make their way to the pub, they discover that the fate of humankind is on the line. With a few new posters hitting the web today and a U.S. »

Simon Pegg is taking a break from his Starship Enterprise duties to raise a pint of lager in the new poster for the forthcoming Brit comedy "The World's End."

The World.s End is different from This is the End . and both are different from At World.s End, which is a Pirates of the Caribbean sequel. We.re focusing on the first one for the time being because Focus Features has unleashed two new posters for Edgar Wright.s upcoming comedy. Check them out above and below us, and we.ll talk about the comedy underneath the second one-sheet.

For The World.s End, he reunites with frequent leads Simon Pegg and Nick Frost for an over-the-hill concept comedy about mates reuniting to complete a pub crawl they once attempted in their heyday.

Following the first teaser trailer from across the pond for Edgar Wright's newest comedy The World's End, we have two new posters with pub crawl attendees Simon Pegg, Nick Frost, Martin Freeman, Paddy Considine, Eddie Marsan and Rosamund Pike. We're still not sure what kind of threats the whole crew will be facing, but as with the other teaser poster, this shows some kind of horde of people with glowing eyes, maybe Invasion of the Body Snatchers style or something. Either way, this should be a very satisfying conclusion to the Three Flavours Cornetto trilogy following Shaun of the Dead and Hot Fuzz. Here are the new posters for Edgar Wright's The World's End from Focus Features: Edgar Wright (Shaun of the Dead, Hot Fuzz) is writing and directing The World's End, third part of the Three Flavours Cornetto trilogy, starring Simon Pegg and Nick Frost. 20 years »

The World’s End
Directed by: Edgar Wright
Rating: Not Yet Rated
Release Date: August 23, 2013
Trailer Score: 8/10
Thoughts by Tsr: I paused this trailer almost immediately after opening it. The one second that played was enough to hear the first note of Primal Scream’s “Loaded,” and it instantly put me in a good place. Things obviously could have fallen apart once, you know, the trailer actually started, but luckily the energy stayed high throughout these fun 103 seconds. Even before “Loaded,” I was pretty much on board with this film. Edgar Wright has a perfect batting average – Hot Fuzz, Scott Pilgrim vs. the World, and Shaun of the Dead are essentially 1a, 1b, and 1c, respectively – so of course the final film in The Three Flavours Cornetto Trilogy is something to be excited about. While full of amusing stuff, the trailer doesn’t »

This week brings the closing chapters of one of the rarest things in cinema -- a consistently strong trilogy -- in the shape of the latest installment of one of the most beloved series in recent memory. Not "The Hangover," but "Before Midnight," the closing (?) chapter to Richard Linklater's tale of romance. While it's bittersweet, we're also hopeful that one other perfect trilogy will be coming along before summer's out, in the shape of Edgar Wright & Simon Pegg's Cornetto trilogy, begun with "Shaun of the Dead" and "Hot Fuzz." A new trailer for the third installment "The World's End" is coming tomorrow, but just arriving before that is a new British quad poster, which highlights some of the supporting cast, including Rosamund Pike, Paddy Considine, Martin Freeman and Eddie Marsan. Check it out above. In other poster news, there's a new one for Woody Allen's fourty-ninth movie, »

Edgar Wright’s Cornetto (or Blood & Ice Cream) trilogy comes to an epic conclusion with apocalyptic comedy The World’S End. The film once again reunites brilliant British funnymen Simon Pegg and Nick Frost as two of the five former best friends who decide to finally get together and attempt another epic pub crawl. One that they couldn’t quite complete 20 years earlier. However, in the midst of the drunken chaos, they unwittingly become humankind’s only hope for survival.
It’s certainly going to be difficult to top the hilarious undead adventures of Shaun Of The Dead and the cop craziness of Hot Fuzz but if anyone can do it, it’s the terrific top trio. Check this latest Us one-sheet first and then the great new Quad!

Simon Pegg has been quite busy as of late. Not only is he starring in Edgar Wright’s epic pub crawl film The World’s End, but he is also reprising his role as Montgomery Scott in Star Trek Into Darkness. Now it’s been announced that he’s been cast in an unspecified role in Australian thriller Kill Me Three Times, from Red Dog director Kriv Stenders.
The film will be about a young woman whose will is tested as she’s linked to several crimes in an Australian town, such as murder and blackmail. Sounds exciting enough. However, the aforementioned British actor will most likely end up playing a supporting role, although director Stenders deemed the part “delicious” and “an exciting surprise for audiences.” Well, if you say so…

With Iron Man 3 crossing the $1 billion mark at the box office today, Marvel is currently enjoying its status at the top of the superhero movie food chain. The studio has a full slate of films hitting theaters over the next couple of years as part of its Phase Two plans, culminating in The Avengers 2 in 2015. However, even with the prospect of Thor and Captain America sequels and Guardians of the Galaxy on the horizon, fans are still clamoring for more, more, more. The studio’s Phase Three is a giant question mark at the moment, with only one film firmly slated for release to kick off a new batch of superhero movies: Ant-Man. Director/co-writer Edgar Wright recently talked a bit about the film and why it’s taken so long to come to fruition, revealing that production will finally get underway next year.
