If you’re a fan of Shaun of the Dead and Hot Fuzz, you’re probably wondering how you can see The World’s End as soon as possible, am I right? Well, we’ve got the scoop on how you can see it a day early alongside the other two flavors in the Cornetto Trilogy!
From the Press Release
Tickets are now on sale for marathon back-to-back-to-back showings of all three movies in the fan favorite “Three Flavours: Cornetto” trilogy of comedies. Focus Features has booked Shaun of the Dead, Hot Fuzz, and the new The World’s End into over 150 participating theaters for Thursday night, August 22nd, in advance of the company’s nationwide release the following day of The World’s End.
Among the participating theater chains are Alamo Drafthouse, AMC Theatres, ArcLight Cinemas, Celebration Cinemas, Cinemark Theatres, Kerasotes ShowPlace ICON Theatres, Regal Theatres, and Wehrenberg Theatres. Moviegoers wishing to purchase tickets, or seeking to confirm theaters and showtimes, can access the Focus Features website. The site will be updated over the next two weeks as additional venues and showings are confirmed.
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). Shaun of the Dead won, among other awards, the British Independent Film Award for Best Screenplay; Hot Fuzz won, among other awards, the Empire Award for Best Comedy. All three movies were produced by Working Title Films and Big Talk Pictures, and all three were scripted by Mr. Wright and Mr. Pegg.
The movies, all MPAA-rated “R,” are known as the “Three Flavours: Cornetto” trilogy because each features a cameo by Cornetto ice cream.

20 years after attempting an epic pub crawl, five childhood friends reunite when one of them becomes hell bent on trying the drinking marathon again. They are convinced to stage an encore by mate Gary King, a 40-year old man trapped at the cigarette end of his teens, who drags his reluctant pals to their home town and once again attempts to reach the fabled pub, The World’s End. As they attempt to reconcile the past and present, they realize the real struggle is for the future, not just theirs but humankind’s. Reaching The World’s End is the least of their worries.
