For their final act of what is now known as the Three Flavours Cornetto Trilogy, Edgar Wright, Simon Pegg, and Nick Frost are heading back home to grab a drink with their mates.
That's the story at the surface of "The World's End," the newest movie from the creative team behind "Shaun of the Dead" and "Hot Fuzz," but that's before the killer robots get involved. Like the other two entries in the trilogy, there's a lot more going on than the main characters, played again by Frost and Pegg, immediately know.
To celebrate the release of "The World's End," MTV Movies Blog is proud to bring you an exclusive motion poster that does a great job at getting across the insanity of this film.

The first US trailer for Edgar Wright's "The World's End" fills us in a little more on what to expect from the final installment in the Three Flavour Cornetto Trilogy, which also included "Shaun of the Dead" and "Hot Fuzz." And that is robots, apparently.
The new preview (via Yahoo! Movies) plays out like the several we've seen from the UK. A group of friends reunite after years apart to complete the 12-bar pub crawl that they couldn't finish in their younger years. The group is led by a greasy-looking Simon Pegg, and includes Nick Frost, Martin Freeman, Paddy Considine, and Eddy Marsan.
The biggest revelation from this new trailer is that it's robots that have taken over the gang's hometown. Earlier trailers have shown the invaders with light pouring from their eyes and mouths, but what at first looked like aliens are identified as robots in the US trailer.

With "The World's End," Edgar Wright brings the Three Flavours Cornetto trilogy, a series of films starring Simon Pegg and Nick Frost, to a close. The first UK trailer for the final installment just debuted over at MSN UK, and it already looks like the final leg of the trilogy could live up to the high standard set by "Shaun of the Dead" and "Hot Fuzz."
"The World's End" tells the story of five friends on a mission: to complete the 12-bar pub crawl that they failed to finish in their youth. Things have changed in the lives of the chums, but Pegg's Gary is determined to get the band back together. What he wasn't expecting what the pub crawl's location to change so much as well.

Edgar Wright is bringing the whole gang back together in his final "Blood and Ice Cream Trilogy" film, "The World's End."
An official press release has gone out announcing that production has started on the movie and offering up the full cast for the flick. In addition to Simon Pegg and Nick Frost, we've learned that Martin Freeman, Paddy Considine, Eddie Marsan and Rosamund Pike have joined the project as well.
Consider us thrilled about this Freeman news. Fans will know that he's been a regular in Wright's trilogy, having a small but memorable part as Declan in "Shaun of the Dead" and playing the Met sergeant who transfers Pegg's character to the country in "Hot Fuzz." We can only imagine what role he'll play here. Hopefully he'll end up getting a little more screentime than he did in the past, considering he's moved up a bit in the world thanks to leading roles in "The Hobbit" and BBC's "Sherlock."
Keira Knightley has won the female lead opposite Chris Pine in the newest Jack Ryan movie, directed by Kenneth Branaugh.
