What is it about seeing Simon Pegg and Nick Frost side by side that makes you feel like you’re watching old friends? The twosome is back for The World’s End, the final film in the Three Flavours Cornetto trilogy, and they’re talking about the experience of making the movie in a new featurette.
The Three Flavours Cornetto trilogy – Shaun of the Dead, Hot Fuzz, and now The World’s End, wasn’t intended to be a trilogy from the beginning, but the men and writer and director Edgar Wright felt that the first two films actually worked together quite well, even if they aren’t exactly playing the same characters. Why not make a third?
The film brings together all of the familiar faces from the first two films – Paddy Considine, Martin Freeman, Eddie Marsan and Frost – as Simon Pegg’s character gathers the men on wild pub crawl that the five had once attempted to complete in their youth. But they soon realize that their hometown isn’t what it used to be; it’s full of robots. They really don’t have the best of luck, do they? Rosamund Pike also stars. Frost and Pegg also gleefully talk about their extensive fight training for The World’s End in the featurette, which you can check out for yourself here:
Frost, Pegg and Wright also shot this little PSA for Alamo Drafthouse about not talking on your cellphone in the movie theater. Menacing.
The World’s End is in theaters August 23rd. [FirstShowing]
