EDGAR WRIGHT’S BLOOD AND ICE CREAM TRILOGY

It all started with SHAUN OF THE DEAD, a hilarious parody of zombie films starring Simon Pegg as the Man Least Likely to Be a Badass. After most of his friends and neighbors turn into brain-eating monsters, Shaun (Pegg) fights for survival with his housemate Ed (Nick Frost), all while attempting to reunite with his ex-girlfriend, Liz (Kate Ashfield).

The brilliance continues with HOT FUZZ, a fantastically funny buddy cop satire which follows a straight-laced officer (Pegg) forced to work in a crime-free village alongside his bumbling partner (Frost). When a string of brutal murders occurs, the duo relies on inspiration from Hollywood blockbusters to turn into the ultimate pair of tough guys.

The trilogy comes to an epic conclusion with THE WORLD'S END, in which a group of chilldhood chums reunites to complete the pub crawl they started twenty years earlier. Their lives, along with their friendships, have changed dramatically since their teenage days, but their differences cease to matter when they're presented with the challenge of not only drinking their way through twelve pubs but of saving the entire planet. Filled with the uproarious humor and madcap adventures we've come to expect from Wright, THE WORLD'S END insures that this trilogy will go out with a bang. (Sarah Pitre)

Wright and Pegg dubbed it the “Blood and Ice Cream” trilogy (also known as the “Three Flavours Cornetto” trilogy) because each film features a double scoop of blood and ice cream. Specifically a different flavor of Cornetto - a tasty frozen treat famous in the UK (the equivalent of our Good Humor King Cone) - that represents the theme of each film (red strawberry for zombie gore, blue original for police action, mint choc-chip for alien invasion).

THE WORLD'S END opens in theatres everywhere August 23rd.

    It looks like I'll be able to get there by 5, so I'll try to keep an eye out for everybody. I'll probably be at the bar... Yeah I know, I'm a lush... And John, I'll hold you a seat and Desiree, too, if she's running behind, but it looks like she's going to be on time. Can't wait!

    Hi okay so how much is it?? Sorry I'm super confused. And where am I meeting everyone?? I'm off early today.

    August 22, 2013

    • John

      The 3 movies together is $20. I would recommend buying it online just in case (there is a $1 additional charge) I will be late (6:00ish) but I recommend getting there by 5:00 to watch the pre-show. We usually meet inside the theater or near the bar.

      August 22, 2013

  • Elizabeth M.

    I can definitely save you a seat! Not a problem.

    I dont get off of work until 6. How long is the meet and greet?? This is my first meet up and I want to get to know at least one person beforehand

    August 15, 2013

    • John

      My apologies, there is a meet and greet at my place of employment, I teach middle school math, which will probably cause me to be late. Otherwise I usually get there early. The movie starts at 5:30. Email me if you would like to meetup before that date, otherwise I can ask Liz to save a seat for you and me if you would still like to come. Just text me when you arrive. [masked]-3634. If not there are future meetups.
