Shaun Of The Dead came out in 2004; Hot Fuzz in 2007; The World's End in 2013. Now, it's all over. With The World's End out on Blu-ray and DVD, Simon Pegg and Edgar Wright enjoyed a weekend of Q&As and signing sessions, but somehow still found the time to talk to the Empire Podcast team to record the definitive Cornetto Trilogy discussion.

Over its 79-minute runtime, you'll find out more about how Pegg and Wright first met, where the original ideas for all three movies came from and what Wright sounds like when he sees Pegg kissing a girl. Hint: it's rather high-pitched.

Then there are the details on the alternate names the films might have had, the time travel plot abandoned during the World's End's scripting stage and the reason why Martin Freeman got so much grief from the rest of the gang on set. So kick back, choose your favourite flavour of ice cream and have a listen...
