The World’s End is a British science fiction comedy film directed by Edgar Wright. The final film of the ‘Three Flavours Cornetto’ trilogy (following on from 2004’s Shaun of the Dead and 2007’s Hot Fuzz), the film stars Simon Pegg as Gary King, an alcoholic ‘free spirit’ who never grew up. When Gary decides he wants to complete the Golden Mile (a 12 pint pub crawl that he didn’t get to finish as a teenager), he tracks down his old school friends Peter (Eddie Marsan), Oliver ‘O-Man’ (Martin Freeman), Steven (Paddy Considine) and Andrew (Nick Frost) and convinces them to return to their sleepy hometown of Newton Haven. Upon arrival they discover that not much has changed… apart from the fact that most of the population has been replaced by alien robots!
