Watch: Simon Pegg & Nick Frost In ‘The World’s End’
Most die-hard fans of Edgar Wright and Simon Pegg have enjoyed their ‘Three Flavors Cornetto’ trilogy — or Blood and Ice-Cream trilogy — and this year’s The World’s End brings their decade-long collaboration to a close.
The two other films director Edgar Wright made with Simon Pegg and Nick Frost are 2004’s Shaun of the Dead and 2007’s Hot Fuzz. The World’s End finds the trio trying to complete a pub crawl after years of attempting and failing alongside Paddy Constantine, Martin Freeman (Sherlock Holmes) and Eddie Marsan.
The first trailer introduces the pals and their mission from years ago: 12 pints each in 12 different pubs in one night, with a last stop at The World’s End bar. Since they didn’t complete it the first time around, Gary (Pegg) rounds them back up years later to get the job done. But oddly enough, they discover that the folks in their hometown of Newton Haven aren’t quite themselves anymore, and they’re thrown into the mix with aliens, weird creatures and all-around Doctor Who-esque type vibe.
Any guess on what flavor Cornetto ice cream will make an appearance in The World’s End? You can answer in the comments section below, or wait until the film drops in theaters on Aug. 23rd.
