The World's End & Cornetto Trilogy

November 19, 2013
The Edgar Wright-directed alien-invasion/drinking comedy featuring Simon Pegg, Nick Frost, Martin Freeman, Rosamund Pike and Pierce Brosnan is now on Blu-ray! The hilarious film follows a group of friends (including Paddy Considine and Eddie Marsan) who embark on an epic 12-pub crawl in their hometown in an effort to complete "The Golden Mile," having fallen short two decades earlier when they were teens in their prime. Back to finish what they started, the reunited pals find out the hard way that an alien robo-invasion is taking place. Can they live to tell the tale -- or are they just too drunk?
Of course, for those not in the know, The World's End completes what has become known as The Three Flavours Cornetto Trilogy, which started with 2004's Shaun of the Dead and 2007's Hot Fuzz, and now all three films are also available separately on Blu-ray!
