The World’s End: we review Simon Pegg and Edgar Wright’s new film

They battled zombies in ‘Shaun of the Dead’ and fought renegade little Englanders in ‘Hot Fuzz’. Now, with their latest film, ‘The World’s End’, the final instalment in their comic Cornetto Trilogy (so called because the ice creams turn up in each of the films), stars Simon Pegg and Nick Frost and director Edgar Wright are facing their toughest challenge yet. We’re not going to give much away beyond saying that the film combines the best aspects of the first two movies – the goofy humour, the knockabout violence, the witty observations on English life – and adds a hefty dollop of sci-fi action and an unexpectedly charming, thoughtful air of bittersweet nostalgia.

You can read our full review of ‘The World’s End‘, and if you like what you see, why not come to a free screening of the film on Tuesday July 16, exclusively for Time Out Card holders.

Also, be sure to pick up tomorrow’s Time Out London magazine for an in-depth interview with Edgar Wright and keep an eye on Time Out Film for more ‘The World’s End’ goodies later in the week.
