The World's End stills released

Finale to the Cornetto trilogy comes out of the (frozen) closet.

Edgar Wright, Simon Pegg and Nick Frost return in the final bite of their Cornetto trilogy. The World's End represents the 'Mint' Cornetto, Hot Fuzz and Shaun of the Dead represented the Strawberry and Vanilla flavors respectively. As a Brit who has consumed many Cornettos in his lifetime, the Mint flavor is, honestly, a mixed bag. There's a definite strong texture and that 'minty' essence that lingers on your breath but, otherwise, I much prefer the Strawberry ones. Food for thought eh? Given the talent at hand it's just hard to imagine The World's End turning out like its attached sundae treat; just utter lackluster.

Wright and company have released a slew of new fantastic imagery with two new stills. Hit the jump for more.

The new stills depict the great British traditions of drinking and looking afraid at ominous lighting. In the first still we see, according to Empire, from "left to right are Bluetoothed estate agent Oliver (Martin Freeman), one-time-rocker-turned-architectural-consultant Steven (Paddy Considine), successful lawyer and King's now-estranged bestie Andy (Nick Frost) and car dealer Peter (Eddie Marsan)". With the second still showing a rather distressed Pegg looking at something while dressed like everybody in Norwich. That probably went straight over your head.

Wright is honestly one of the best talents out there and with his Ant-Man darling coming out soon it's good to find him busy. It's been a good while since the Pegg, Frost and Wright triumvirate reared its head. From what we know of The World's End it apparently features a Pub Crawl of apocalyptic proportions. Hopefully this ending of both the trilogy, and allegedly the world, won't herald the end of the Pegg/Frost/Wright threesome. As someone who spent his tweenage years giggling at Spaced it's hard to imagine them ever splitting up.

Maybe I’m just young, but a good movie fight is the quickest way to my heart. A well-choreographed or inventive action scene appeals to a certain part of my brain in ways I don’t quite understand yet. For an action junkie, 2013 was disappointing and delightful in equal measure. There were few standouts, but the ones that stood out? Man, did they stand out.
Bad movies are bad, no ifs or buts about it. But a good trailer could make even the worst movies at least look interesting. The ten trailers featured today are not those trailers. You see, a trailer is the most important thin...
For the second week in a row, Lee Daniels' The Butler took the top slot at a modest weekend box office, with We're the Millers holding tight at number two. Kick-Ass 2 dropped to number ten and got beat up by Woody Allen's Blu...

The World's End marks the end of the Cornetto trilogy; the long-lived British comedy love affair filled with laughs, cheers and genre bashes. With Shaun of the Dead, the low-key British film scene was imploded upon with a blo...
While we've been restricted from telling you how good The World's End is by embargoes I think it's safe to say that plenty of people are interested in the film. People who might, say, want to see it for free and before e...
For those of you unaware, The Worlds End is about a bunch of British guys who go for an epic pub crawl during which some very crazy stuff goes down. The trailer can fill you in.  Don't you want to go to all those a...

Two new posters have been released for director Edgar Wright’s newest film, The World’s End. In case we didn’t know this from the first trailer that was released, we can reaffirm that Paddy Considine, Martin...
Here it is, everyone! The first trailer for The World's End, the third and final part of the Cornetto trilogy. It looks like Edgar Wright, Simon Pegg, and Nick Frost are going into Invasion of the Body Snatchers territory wi...
