Simon Pegg, Nick Frost And Edgar Wright At The London World's End Premiere
Anyone for a pint of fried gold?

The World's End London Premiere

OK, stop singing that REM song and start singing Primal Scream instead because The World's End premiered in London last night, and the emphasis was more on doing what we want to do than the coming apocalypse. With Edgar Wright, Simon Pegg, Nick Frost, Rosamund Pike and more in attendance, things kicked off with a bang and only ended with a whimper for those who had one too many pints at the after-party.

The film is, of course, the finale to the Three Flavours Cornetto trilogy: directed by Edgar Wright, written by Wright and Simon Pegg, and starring Pegg, Nick Frost, Paddy Considine, Martin Freeman, Eddie Marsan and Rosamund Pike. The five men play old friends who reunite at the behest of Pegg's Gary King to complete the pub crawl they abandoned as teenagers (Pike is Freeman's character's sister, an old flame of Pegg's). However, things don't go to plan when they return to their home town and discover that things have gone a little end-of-the-worldy.

The World's End hits UK cinemas on July 19, and we'll be bringing you lots more coverage between now and then...
