Fans of Edgar Wright’s first two entries into his “Cornetto Trilogy” (2004‘s SHAUN OF THE DEAD, followed by 2007‘s HOT FUZZ) have been anxiously waiting for the final film to arrive, and on August 23rd, it arrives in the form of THE WORLD’S END. While the trailer for the film is enough to please any fans of the other two films, we were lucky enough to be sent two brand new featurettes regarding the making of THE WORLD’S END, and it looks like a hell of a time! Check out both videos after the jump!
Director Edgar Wright and actors Simon Pegg and Nick Frost reunite for a third film following the successes “Shaun of the Dead” (2004) and “Hot Fuzz” (2007). In “The World’s End,” 20 years after attempting an epic pub crawl, five childhood friends reunite when one of them becomes hellbent on trying the drinking marathon again. They are convinced to stage an encore by Gary King (Simon Pegg), a 40-year-old man trapped at the cigarette end of his teens, who drags his reluctant pals to their hometown 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
