‘The World's End’ Set Photos with Simon Pegg and Nick Frost

The infamously British Blood and Ice Cream Trilogy comes to its inevitable conclusion with The World's End, which finds actors Simon Pegg and Nick Frost reuniting on-screen once again for director Edgar Wright. Their previous ventures together include Shaun of the Dead, Hot Fuzz, and the TV series Spaced. Now, the trio will attempt to complete an epic pub crawl, which finds a group of childhood friends reuniting to finally make it to the renowned watering hole known as The World's End. Halfway through their quest; they realize that something sinister is lurking about, bound and determined to destroy planet earth! We have your first look at the set, which finds Simon Pegg and Nick Frost watching on as Edgar Wright directs the first pub-crawl from (flash)back in the day. The names of the young actors have not been revealed, but the chubby teen is playing a younger Nick Frost, while the black trench coat wearing Goth kid is playing a young Simon Pegg. If you've ever wondered what became of E.T. the Extra-Terrestrial's Gertie (Drew Barrymore), check out Nick's T-shirt. Apparently she's in Arizona running a sandwich shop in what is one of the gang's many nods to their own pop culture past.

          @mcleve02 I was joking (sadly, not many people know of the trilogy), but your mediation skills are delightful. Perhaps you should apply for a job in the West Wing.

            I love this comedy ensemble, they are a great example of British humor.

              @crypt@zanyzap Is this a real fight or joking around...

              joking comment: haha

              Fighting and serious: I think if we are on a movie site, not liking those films does not force you to leave this site... He didn't come on here and pretend like he knew everything, and yet really knows nothing... At least he had the balls to admit he did not know that those two piles of sh*t that have nothing to do with each other are in fact a trilogy... There are a lot of films out there that are better than these piles of garbage...

              Unabomber... no we do not hate you... stay as long as you would like!

                @redcameraman I am with you on this one. There were a couple of moments in them that made me smile, not laugh... Not a fan of these films or their work...

                  @redcameraman I absolutely loved Shaun of the Dead, Hot Fuzz and Scott Pilgim! They not only made me laugh but I thought they were beautifully shot/edited. Just different tastes I guess. That's not to say I don't enjoy more conventional comedies, but Edgar Wright's style is very unique and i dig that.

                    @zanyzap Um what's got you today? I have seen Hot Fuzz and Shaun of the Dead, but seeing as though they're not related to each other I had no idea they were part of a trilogy. F*ck off and die... JK... Maybe.

                      @crypt Please educate yourself about these things. If you don't know about hilarious trilogies featuring Simon Pegg and Nick Frost, then you have no purpose here on this site. Leave. We hate you. You're awful.

                      JK. (Maybe).

                        @Agent-Cooper: That's fine. But I also forgot to say that I saw "Scott Pilgrim" too, and that's one of the worst movies I've ever seen. Such a f*cking abomination of a film and to human society. It's just the main attraction for Nintendo video game nerds and stoned hipsters, and so many fanboys praising that movie is making me hate it even more...AND Edgar Wright because it's his worst film yet to date. SO glad I've seen WAY funnier stuff than that overhyped garbage.

                                  @crypt The previous 2 films were Shaun Of The Dead & Hot Fuzz, in which all three Edgar Wright, Simon Pegg & Nick Frost were involved in making.

                                  The ideal of the 'Cornetto trilogy' is that in each of the films one or both main characters eat a Cornetto, which is reference to 'The Three Colours Trilogy' by Krzysztof Kielowski'

                                    @narrator I;m very much looking forward to it, since i've been on the set and also the title of the film is named after my local pub 'The World's End' In Camden.

                                      @jayaottley Ok... hahaha do you know what the previous 2 films are in the "trilogy" then?

                                        I'm looking forward to this. Wright is talented, despite being hit-and-miss with me, and I like Frost and LOVE Pegg. The younger version of Pegg seems inaccurate though.

                                          @crypt No idea, as far as I'm concerned it's called 'The Three Flavours Cornetto Trilogy.'

                                          So i'm guessing its just an inaccuracy on behalf of the @balanorange
