Pint after pint of pale golden ale flow in Edgar Wright‘s The World’s End, so just how much actual drinking did Simon Pegg and Nick Frost do on set? The actors tell all in our video interview above. Pegg also talks about the creation of Gary King’s unique pseudo-Goth look, including how bands like Sisters of Mercy and The Cure influenced it.
The World’s End is also the capper of the Three Flavours Cornetto trilogy started by Shaun of the Dead and Hot Fuzz, and the duo reveal how it expands upon ideas and motifs in the first two movies — like “perpetual adolescence” and “maintaining individuality in the face of a homogenizing force.” And of course, ice cream and jumping over fences. Check it out, and you might get free ice cream! Okay, not really.
