Romero, among others. READ FULL STORY

The World’s End, the third collaboration for Simon Pegg and Nick Frost with Shaun of the Dead and Hot Fuzz director/co-writer Edgar Wright, hits theaters today. Which means you should start seeing fans reenact a lengthy fight that breaks out during their characters’ nostalgic 12-pub crawl right… about… now.
Earlier this week, Pegg and Frost visited EW’s Sirius XM channel and talked about creating the martial art they call “pub fu” with stunt coordinator and choreographer Brad Allan. “It’s like a half-remembered martial art form. I used to watch wrestling, and I can swing my arms really quickly,” Pegg said. “But we also wanted it to look like the more drunk they got the more proficient they became fighting…. so that the brawls become more and more elaborate.”

Edgar Wright, the filmmaker behind zombie comedy Shaun of the Dead and romantic gamer flick Scott Pilgrim vs. the World, has a new comedy out this summer called The World’s End. But since this is an Edgar Wright movie, it’s of course not your typical end-of-the-world apocalypse story.
When five friends reunite and attempt to top their epic pub crawl from 20 years earlier, the name of the final pub on their list, The World’s End, starts to take on a literal meaning. Finishing the pub crawl becomes the least of their worries, as the real struggle becomes saving mankind.
Check out The World’s End‘s newest trailer, which features Simon Pegg, Nick Frost and more Brits fighting (or attempting to fight) robots, below: READ FULL STORY
It’s become common for major Hollywood movies to experience very long release-date delays. Sometimes, the filmmakers need more time to stuff the film with totally essential digital effects. Sometimes they need to convert the film into 3-D — for purely artistic reasons, of course. And sometimes, they just need to resurrect Channing Tatum. It’s rare, however, for a film to move in the other direction, and open earlier than planned. But that’s exactly what happened with The World’s End, the long-awaited third film from Edgar Wright and Simon Pegg which completes a loose trilogy with Shaun of the Dead and Hot Fuzz.

After collaborating on Shaun of the Dead and Hot Fuzz, Edgar Wright and Simon Pegg are reteaming for The World’s End, the tale of five friends on a pub crawl that takes an apocalyptic turn. Pegg stars alongside his Shaun/Fuzz buddy Nick Frost; they’re joined by Brit actors Paddy Considine and Eddie Marsan, plus Bilbo Watson, a.k.a. Martin Freeman. (Don’t confuse this movie with This Is The End, which is basically the same story, except replace all the British people with the Judd Apatow players.) To celebrate the end of filming, Simon Pegg tweeted an image of the cast — check it out below! READ FULL STORY
