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 realise the real struggle is for the future, not just theirs but humankind's. Reaching The World's End is the least of their worries.

The World's End is the third and final film in what has been dubbed the 'Three Flavours Cornetto Trilogy' of productions by Simon Pegg, Nick Frost and Edgar Wright (the flavour this time being mint chocolate chip). Having previously mocked zombies and cop films, this time the target is science-ficition, in particular works like The Midwich Cuckoos and Village of the Damned.
