The lager-fuelled romp is the third instalment of director Edgar Wright and fellow screenwriter Pegg’s Three Flavours Cornetto trilogy.
"We’re going to see this through to the bitter end. Or... lager end. "
Following wonderful zombie flick Shaun of the Dead and cop buddy movie Hot Fuzz, The World’s End heads into more potential ‘B-movie’ territory with an alien invasion.
Twenty 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 (Pegg), a 40-year-old man trapped at the cigarette end of his teens.
King drags his reluctant pals – played by Frost, Eddie Marsan, Paddy Considine and Martin Freeman – to their hometown of Newton Haven and once again attempts to reach the fabled pub The World’s End.
Things don’t go quite to plan though.
The first four pubs visited by the gang on their drinking quest are in Welwyn Garden City.
