I thought i had made a thread for this,but i think i just mentioned it in the 'Paul' thread(which i quite enjoyed BTW)

The Worlds End is the third film directed by Edgar Wright(Scott Pilgrim and upcoming Ant-Man) that stars Simon Pegg and Nick Frost after Shaun of the Dead and Hot Fuzz

All three films are also known as The Three Flavours Cornetto Trilogy

Quote
Each film in the trilogy is connected to a Cornetto ice cream flavour – both of the films released to date feature scenes in which one of the main characters purchases a Cornetto of the appropriate flavour. Shaun of the Dead features a red strawberry flavoured Cornetto, which signifies the film's bloody and gory elements, Hot Fuzz includes the blue original Cornetto, to signify the police element to the film and The World's End will feature the green mint choc-chip flavour, to signify science fiction. The use of the three flavours/colours of Cornetto is a reference to Krzysztof Kieślowski's Three Colours film trilogy.


Starts filming in September for a 2013 release

TBH,i am not sure whether this will be a cinema trip,but i am certainly interested

here is the teaser poster


now,if a bit mystified by that poster,read this
Quote
The World’s End, long-awaited cinema reunion of director Edgar Wright and Simon Pegg (Shaun of the Dead, Hot Fuzz), officially has a greenlight, Universal Pictures announced today. Costarring regular collaborator Nick Frost, and co-written by Wright and Pegg, the film will follow five old friends who attempt to re-create a heroic pub crawl they attempted 20 years previous, which ends at a pub called The World’s End. But as the title implies, the fate of humankind also hangs in the balance.

Universal also released a teaser poster for the film, evoking the pub crawl of the plot

So...they are all Pub Names Tongue

interested, but Shaun of the Dead and Hot Fuzz were both movies that I didn't really care for on first viewing but started liking more after seeing them a few more times, so I'll probably wait for blu ray.

For some reason I thought Shaun of the Dead did better then Hot Fuzz.  It certainly has had a bigger cultural impact.

Been looking forward to the final installment of the Cornetto Ice Cream Trilogy.  Definitely in, although probably on DVD.  Like CeeKay, I wasn't a huge fan of Shaun of the Dead or Hot Fuzz on first viewing, but they've grown on me with subsequent viewings.

Hmm, I expected to be really excited by that trailer but it really felt like a retread of Hot Fuzz mixed with Shaun of the Dead.

As it's part of the Cornetto Trilogy (as metallicorphan originally mentioned), and developed by the same people, I'm not surprised it has a very similar feel.  Beer and aliens?  I'm in.

I got to see this a few weeks ago. I won a pair of early tickets through my local radio station last month and there was a surprise 30 minute q&a with Wright, Pegg and Frost after the movie.

It's on par with Hot Fuzz. And I thought HF was fantastic.

Also, this may have the most fantastic movie soundtrack EVER

Wow, glad to hear that this one turned out actually decent.  I was afraid from the early trailers that it would be a weak ending to the loose trilogy. 

I will still probably wait until it hits streaming or Blu-ray, just because it doesn't scream "must see on big screen".

I enjoyed it, but the ending felt forced to me.  The final scenes of Pegg's character didn't quite work, imho.

But putting Paddy Considine, Martin Freeman and Eddie Marsan in a film ensures that very little can go wrong.  The acting power alone in that troupe can elevate any film.

The real surprise me though was just how goddamn good Nick Frost was in a role that called for him to be serious for great lengths of the film.  He was frickin' great at it.  That guy is more than just a comic buffoon and I hope he gets more roles that call for him to show a bit more depth.

I enjoyed it, but the ending felt forced to me.  The final scenes of Pegg's character didn't quite work, imho.

I thought the same when I watched it. One of the questions that was asked in the Q&A with all three after I saw the early screening was about this... Pegg had a really good answer that explained the idea around it.

Early in the movie Andy has a line where he says "it takes balls to order a glass of water in a pub full of tattooed men" (or something similar -- it's been a few weeks since I've seen it). After the end, Gary is back with his younger friends, living the life he wanted with them, and no longer needed the alcohol - and orders a round of waters. It's pretty heavily implied that he was seeing the physical/medical signs of alcohol abuse in the middle of the movie -- he refused to show his wrists to prove he's human.



The single best line in the movie was from Nick Frost, when they decide to continue with the craawl... with the PERFECT delivery of "but we don't have a better plan, so fuck it!" and smashes his hand right through the glass door.

The best part of the Q&A was when Simon Pegg went over the meaning behind all of the pub names, and how it basically foreshadows for each "act" of the film.
