THE WORLD’S END
2013, Focus Features, 109 min, UK, Dir: Edgar Wright

Director Edgar Wright finishes what he started with SHAUN OF THE DEAD and HOT FUZZ, reuniting with stars and co-writers Simon Pegg and Nick Frost to tell the hilarious tale of a group of friends who begin on a leisurely pub crawl that soon becomes a fast, funny adventure. Expertly choreographed action set pieces alternate with surprisingly heartfelt reflections on friendship and aging in this satisfying conclusion to Wright’s “Three Flavours Cornetto” trilogy.

In the action-packed comedy from the makers of the hit SHAUN OF THE DEAD, Nicholas Angel (Simon Pegg) is the finest cop London has to offer - he’s so good, he makes everyone else look bad. As a result, Angel’s superiors send him to a seemingly crime-free village where his talents won’t be quite so embarrassing. There he is partnered with overeager officer Danny Butterman (Nick Frost), whose dreams of exciting gunfights and high-octane car chases become reality after some grisly incidents rock the village. With Jim Broadbent, Timothy Dalton and Edward Woodward.
