EDGAR WRIGHT appears to sign free posters for THE WORLD’S END at the Forbidden Planet London Megastore on Thursday 4 July 2013 from 5:00 – 5:30 pm!
Twenty years after attempting an epic pub crawl, five childhood friends reunite when one of them becomes hellbent on trying the drinking marathon again. They are convinced to stage an encore by Gary King (Simon Pegg), a forty-year-old man trapped at the cigarette end of his teens, who drags his reluctant pals to their hometown and once again attempts to reach the fabled pub – The World’s End. As they attempt to reconcile the past and present, they realise the real struggle is for the future, not just theirs but humankind’s. Reaching The World’s End is the least of their worries.
Edgar Wright is a genre-smashing creator, a film and television director and writer. He worked with Simon Pegg, Nira Park and Nick Frost on the films Shaun of the Dead and Hot Fuzz, the TV series Spaced, the upcoming 2013 film The World’s End, and he directed the film Scott Pilgrim vs. the World.

From the comic books by Bryan Lee O’Malley, this is the level-up movie that brought Scott Pilgrim onto the big screen.

Scott Pilgrim vs the World is released on Blu-ray and two disc DVD on 27th December from Universal Pictures.
Edgar Wright is a genre-smashing creator as writer and director on ‘Hot Fuzz’, ‘Shaun Of The Dead’ and cult TV series ‘Spaced’. In Scott Pilgrim Vs. The World, he brings to life the tale of one romantic slacker’s quest to power up with love – and the DVD release of the movie is absolutely packed with extras.
