Chloë Grace Moretz,
20 years after attempting an epic pub crawl, five childhood friends reunite when one of them becomes hell bent on trying the drinking marathon again. They are convinced to stage an encore by mate Gary King, a 40-year old man trapped at the cigarette end of his teens, who drags his reluctant pals to their home town 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.Written by
The bartenders ("publicans") of the first two bars are, by complete coincidence, real-life cousins Teddy Kempner and Mark Kempner, who hadn't seen each other in years, until they were reunited at the audition, according to Director Edgar Wright. See more »

Sisters of Mercy's "This Corrosion" is used over the end credits. If this track sounds very familiar to you, it might be because other's have described Hans Zimmer's "Las Vegas" music from Rain Man as being a "dead-on swipe" of this Sister's track. See more »
The hate this movie gets is starting to get on my nerves real bad
First off, I'm not going to hold everybody against the wall with a gun at their genitals, asking them to please like this movie or I shoot their freaking balls off. I'm not that that kind of person (and who is anyways). But I want to clear something up here, because I'm getting pretty tired of watching this movie's rating keep on descending here on IMDb, currently holding a 7.1, and on top of that observe all the hilariously stupid hate-arguments people use to shoot this movie down.
I honestly think people have forgotten how it was like to watch these movies for the first time, and why they found the first two in the series funny in the first place. Shaun of the Dead and Hot Fuzz were never as hyped as The World's End was, and I think people expected something else this time around, other than what they were used to from the series... Something bigger, something way beyond Shaun and Hot Fuzz.
The fact is this IS different, and people tend to not look at the movie in a bigger perspective. All the hidden metaphors and references may be overlooked because all they can think of is: 'well this is basically Shaun of the Dead all over again isn't it" NO it's not. NOT at all.
I think people need to clear their minds and learn to appreciate good cinema when they see it. I think this got the 'bad-movie' sticker on it WAY too early, and it has become 'that movie to hate' even though it does not deserve that - yes that's my opinion but hear me out here...
It is the 3rd movie in a brilliant series, of course it's hard to live up to. But I dare all of you to see it once more, and look at the unique signature directing style and editing from Mr. Wright, the perfectly timed jokes, and after that look up some analysis of the movie. I'm not saying you are going to like it after a second watch, I'm not saying that you did not get some of the references in the first viewing already either. I'm just saying that people rating this as low as 1 or 2/10 are completely insane.
Maybe you don't like the concept, fine. Maybe you didn't like the ending, fine. But there has to be HELL OF A LOT wrong with this if you rate it as low as some of the worst movies ever made.
