'The World's End': Check out behind-the-scenes footage from the sci-fi comedy -- EXCLUSIVE VIDEO

If you like Simon Pegg, Nick Frost, Martin Freeman, comedies set in British pubs, loosely connected film triptychs, and killer robots, then you probably saw Edgar Wright‘s The World’s End when it was released earlier this year. If you didn’t? Well, that would be rather peculiar, given your interests. Regardless, November 19 sees the Blu-ray and DVD release of the film, which will be available for purchase both on its lonesome and as part of a Cornetto Trilogy pack, alongside Shaun of the Dead and Hot Fuzz.

To suitably lubricate your laughing gear in preparation for next Tuesday, you can check out an exclusive clip from the World’s End bonus features below. How’s that for a slice of fried gold?

Box office report: 'The Butler' repeats at No. 1, 'Mortal Instruments' flops

For the second weekend in a row, Lee Daniels’ The Butler dished out major blows to the new arrivals at the late summer box office. The Weinstein drama, which stars Forest Whitaker and Oprah Winfrey, fell 31 percent to $17 million this weekend, bringing The Butler‘s gross to $52.3 million after ten days. The film isn’t raking in quite as much as 2011′s The Help, which had earned $57.2 million in its first ten days (though that film opened on a Wednesday, so that total accounts for only one weekend), and it won’t match The Help‘s $169.7 million finish. Still, if word-of-mouth keeps driving slim week-to-week declines, The Butler has a very good chance of reaching $100 million. Even if it just misses the century mark, the film will triple its $30 million budget domestically.

But The Butler wasn’t the only holdover to notch an impressive drop. We’re the Millers held up even better in its third weekend. The Jason Sudeikis/Jennifer Aniston collaboration fell only 25 percent to $13.5 million, which gives the pot smuggling comedy a smoking $91.7 million total. Millers is performing even better than Sudeikis’ and Aniston’s previous comedic offering, Horrible Bosses, which had earned $82.6 million at the same point in its run on the way to a $117 million final tally. Warner Bros.’ Millers won’t be able to surpass The Heat‘s $155.9 million gross to become the biggest comedy of the summer, but it could still catch up to Grown Ups 2‘s $128 million total — a phenomenal result for a film that cost $37 million. Sudeikis chose the right project to launch his post-SNL career. READ FULL STORY

Box office update: 'The Butler' holds off competition with $4.8 million Friday

Despite the arrival of three newcomers, Lee Daniels’ The Butler stayed atop its box office perch quite easily on Friday. The $30 million Weinstein drama starring Forest Whitaker and Oprah Winfrey fell 43 percent from its first Friday to $4.8 million, which puts it on track for a great $17 million second weekend. The Butler‘s total will have climbed to about $52 million by Sunday night.

We’re the Millers held up even better on its third Friday. The film dropped only 26 percent to $4 million, which should yield a $14 million weekend and an excellent $92 million total. The Warner Bros. million comedy, which cost $37 million, is set to become Jennifer Aniston’s sixth $100 million hit.

The next three spots on the chart belonged to the three new releases, none of which are lighting up the box office. The World’s End fared best, scoring $3.5 million from 1,549 theaters on Friday, and it may take in about $9 million over the full weekend. The British import will easily outdo the debuts of its two wacky predecessors, 2004′s Shaun of the Dead and 2007′s Hot Fuzz, which opened with $3.3 million and $5.8 million, respectively.

In fourth place, The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones continued its march to the same YA-graveyard as Beautiful Creatures and The Host. The $60 million fantasy film conjured $3.1 million on Friday, which sets it up for an awful $9.3 million weekend and only $14 million over its five-day debut. At least that was better than You’re Next, which rounded out the Top 5 with $3 million on Friday. The R-rated horror film, which earned reviews on par with July’s The Conjuring, may slash up about $8 million this weekend.

1. The Butler – $4.8 million
2. We’re the Millers – $4.0 million
3. The World’s End – $3.5 million
4. The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones – $3.1 million
5. You’re Next – $3.0 million

Down in tenth place, Woody Allen’s Blue Jasmine seems to have expanded too quickly. After a few robust weeks in limited release (last weekend, in its fourth frame, Jasmine scored $2.3 million from 229 theaters thanks to a terrific $10,005 theater average), Sony Pictures Classics expanded the film into 1,237 theaters. But on Friday, Blue Jasmine took in just $1.2 million, putting it on pace for a $3.6 million frame. Most analysts were expecting about $6 million from the film this weekend, but it seems many potential viewers weren’t aware it was hitting their local cinema.

'The World's End': Simon Pegg and Nick Frost on the martial art they call 'pub fu'

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.”

Box office preview: 'The Butler' prepared to hold off 'You're Next' and 'Mortal Instruments'

After a full week atop the chart, The Butler should serve a second helping of box office dollars this weekend. Although three new movies are entering the fray (and Woody Allen’s Blue Jasmine is getting a wide expansion), the summer movie season is waning. Kids are back in school, families are back from vacation, and consumers are saving their movie-going budgets for glossy fall releases. Typically, studios dump their worst fare in the late August-September box office dead zone, but two of this weekend’s releases, You’re Next and The World’s End, have earned some of the best reviews of the year. Unfortunately, that seems unlikely to drive them to big box office success.

Here’s how the weekend might play out:

1. The Butler – $16 million
Thanks to excellent word-of-mouth, Oscar buzz, and the lack of any new dramas for a mature audience competing, The Butler should hold up quite well in its second weekend. Over this weekend in 2011, The Help dipped only 23 percent, but The Butler hasn’t generated the groundswell of positive buzz that The Help did, and it may fall by a slightly steeper 35 percent to $16 million, which would yield a $50 million total. Not bad considering the Weinstein film cost just $30 million. READ FULL STORY

Comic-Con: 'The Visionaries' discuss stunts, technology, and their complicated reservations about 3-D

“A visionary is not just someone who imagines amazing things, but really someone who can take the things in their head and make them real, who can let us see through their eyes,” said EW’s own Anthony Breznican, who moderated Entertainment Weekly’s Visionaries panel at Comic-Con on Thursday.

Alfonso Cuarón (Children of Men), Marc Webb (The Amazing Spider-Man), and Edgar Wright (Scott Pilgrim vs. the World) sat down with Breznican in front of a sea of fans in Hall H to discuss long takes, relationship movies in disguise, and the technological challenges of suspending Sandra Bullock in space. Take a look at some of the best moments after the jump.

Simon Pegg and Nick Frost fight robots in 'The World's End' trailer -- VIDEO

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

'The World's End': New film from 'Shaun of the Dead' collaborators is opening two months earlier

worlds-end

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.

'The World's End' image: The next Edgar Wright/Simon Pegg film! -- PICTURE

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
