As a huge fan of the Cornetto trilogy, I’m psyched to host this giveaway for our readers. I saw The World’s End a couple weeks ago, and it’s nothing short of fantastic. My favorite of the trilogy, not only does The World’s End bring the laughs, but it deals with some dark, heavy material that gives the movie unexpected amount of emotion. If you love Shaun of the Dead and Hot Fuzz, you have NO excuse to miss out on The World’s End. Read a little about the film, watch the trailer and enter to win one of three really awesome prize packs!
ABOUT THE FILM
A signature brew of camaraderie, knockabout humor, excessive quaffing, questionable life choices, hand-to-hand combat, and explosive surprises, The World’s End reteams director Edgar Wright with actors Simon Pegg and Nick Frost, following their hits Shaun of the Dead (2004) and Hot Fuzz (2007).
The tale of The World’s End begins on June 22nd, 1990. In their suburban U.K. town of Newton Haven, five boys in the prime of their teenage youth celebrate the end of school by attempting an epic pub crawl together. Despite their enthusiasm and the downing of a slew of pints of beer, they fall short of seeing their quest through, to the last pub on their list, The World’s End.
Twenty-odd years later, “the five musketeers” have each left their hometown and are now husbands, fathers, men with careers – with the flashing-red-light exception of their voluble onetime ringleader, Gary King (Simon Pegg), who is now a 40-year-old man trapped at the cigarette end of his teens. The irrepressible Gary, keenly aware of his estrangement from his onetime closest friend Andy (Nick Frost), becomes hellbent on trying “The Golden Mile” drinking marathon again. He convinces Andy, Steven (Paddy Considine), Oliver (Martin Freeman), and Peter (Eddie Marsan) to stage an encore, and one Friday afternoon they are all reunited. Gary is in his element: the mandate is one night, five guys, twelve pubs – imbibing at least one pint apiece at each establishment. Arriving in Newton Haven, they re-encounter Oliver’s sister Sam (Rosamund Pike), for whom Gary and Steven each still carry a torch.
As the gang attempts along the way to reconcile their past and present, an increasingly insane and dangerous series of encounters with old haunts and acquaintances makes them realize that the real struggle is for the future, not just theirs but humankind’s. Reaching The World’s End is the least of their worries…

Primal Scream’s “Loaded” is something of a theme for the action in The World’s End, and is featured along with high-profile tracks from Blur, The Soup Dragons, Pulp, Suede, Teenage Fanclub, Stone Roses, Sisters of Mercy (whose t-shirt Simon Pegg’s character Gary King wears throughout the film) – and even The Doors’ iconic take on Brecht and Weill’s “Alabama Song (Whisky Bar).”
