"When at Comic-Con recently, I heard Edgar Wright talk about the ‘Cornetto Trilogy' and how these films connect. Combined with the new movie, fans should enjoy a hilarious and satisfying conclusion," stated Ken Thewes, chief marketing officer for Regal Entertainment Group. "Seeing all three films at Regal Cinemas with other moviegoers who greatly appreciate Wright's work will make this marathon experience special."
Director Edgar Wright and actors Simon Pegg and Nick Frost reunite for a third film following the successes "Shaun of the Dead" (2004) and "Hot Fuzz" (2007). In "The World's End," 20 years after attempting an epic pub crawl, five childhood friends reunite when one of them becomes hellbent on trying the drinking marathon again. They are convinced to stage an encore by Gary King (Simon Pegg), a 40-year-old man trapped at the cigarette end of his teens, who drags his reluctant pals to their hometown and once again attempts to reach the fabled pub - The World's End. As they attempt to reconcile the past and present, they realize the real struggle is for the future, not just theirs but humankind's. Reaching The World's End is the least of their worries.
