Edgar, Simon and Nick Meet at <I>The World’s End</i>

As a filmmaking team, director Edgar Wright and actors Simon Pegg and Nick Frost have put their unique satirical spin on zombie films (Shaun of the Dead), buddy cop pictures (Hot Fuzz) and now with their latest collaboration, The World's End, alien invasion features. But as with the previous two installments in the so-called "Cornetto Trilogy," there's a lot going under the surface of this rollicking sci-fi comedy, which stars Pegg as Gary King, a pushing-40 drunkard who reunites his four teenage pals (including Paddy Considine, Martin Freeman, Eddie Marsan and, of course, Frost) in order to relive an epic pub crawl in their quaint hometown that they never had the chance to complete. On a recent press tour through New York, the trio discussed the deeper meanings of The World's End and where that evocative title comes from.
