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.

Geekdom has expected big things from Scott Pilgrim vs. The World. Adapted from the graphic novels by Bryan Lee O’Malley, the film is director Edgar Wright’s first outing on the big screen without his Shaun of the Dead and Hot Fuzz co-conspirators, and oh my, what an outing it is. Wright is the master of making the ordinary extraordinary. In much the same way as the characters of Spaced’s lives were given dramatic treatment befitting the big screen, Scott Pilgrim’s precious little life is treated with all the gusto, pizzazz and point systems of beloved old-school videogames. Simon Pegg even tweeted that Scott Pilgrim vs. the World is ‘the closest thing you will ever see to a third series of Spaced’.
