Prepare for the wildest of all reunions, as the creators of ‘Shaun of the Dead’ and ‘Hot Fuzz’ reunite for the epic conclusion to Britain’s best loved trilogy. From SIMON PEGG, NICK FROST and director EDGAR WRIGHT comes an explosive thrill ride of action and hilarious comedy in THE WORLD’S END – released on Blu-ray™ and DVD – both with UltraViolet™ – and digital download from 19th November [North America]. Now fans can truly watch The World’s End anywhere, on any device!
The latest instalment in the laugh-out-loud trilogy features the ultimate reunion – one night, five friends, twelve bars and a bid to reach the final ‘Worlds End’ pub…only the strongest will survive. Joining the all-star cast for their most exciting and adrenaline fuelled experience yet are Martin Freeman (Love Actually, The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey), Rosamund Pike (Die Another Day, Wrath of the Titans), Paddy Considine (Tyrannosaur, The Bourne Ultimatum), Eddie Marsan (Hancock, Sherlock Holmes) Pierce Bronson (James Bond, Mamma Mia!) and Bill Nighy (Shaun of the Dead, Hot Fuzz).
Having devoted his entire life to partying, Gary King (Pegg) is determined to fulfil his lifelong dream of completing ‘the golden mile’, a legendary drinking marathon in his home town of Newton Haven. Using dirty tactics, Gary manages to convince his four childhood best friends to take part in the challenge, despite them having grown into successful and mature adults. Meet teetotal lawyer Andy Knightley (Frost), architectural consultant Steven (Considine), high-flying estate agent Oliver O-Man (Freeman) and reserved car dealer Peter (Marsan).
After the first few identical pubs on the ‘golden mile’, a mysterious atmosphere surrounds Gary and the group and the night soon spirals out of control. In the Cross Hands pub, a slapstick fight soon breaks out in the men’s toilets unveiling ‘The Blanks’ – ass-kicking aliens disguised in human form who are threatening to take over the town, and the rest of the world! The reunion soon becomes much more than a pub crawl and a bigger challenge than ever imagined as they embark on the craziest mission of a lifetime.
Don’t miss the final slice of the ‘Cornetto’ trilogy THE WORLDS END, packed with outrageous humour, explosive action, bizarre brawls and side-splitting one-liners, as it is released on Blu-ray™ and DVD – both with UltraViolet™ – and digital download from 19th November [North America], 2013.
