First there was Shaun of the Dead. Then came Hot Fuzz. Now, Brit buddies Simon Pegg and Nick Frost have reunited with director Edgar Wright for the third film in their hilarious trilogy of unrelated things: The World's End!
The trio hit Comic-Con in San Diego over the weekend to discuss their new, out-of-this-world comedy -- and Simon and Nick ended up trying their hardest to break Edgar's concentration while he was talking to ET. Watch the fun video.
In theaters August 23, The World's End follows a group of friends (including Simon, Nick, Martin Freeman, Paddy Considine, Rosamund Pike and Eddie Marsan) who embark on an epic 12-pub crawl in their hometown, only to discover that an alien invasion is taking place. Can they live to tell the tale? Or are they just too drunk?
Edgar's next project is set to be Marvel's Ant Man, and he also makes a Comic-Con "exclusive" announcement of the casting just for ET! He's kidding, right? Watch the video.
