The third Cornetto is fast approaching. The cap to director Edgar Wright’s previous collaborations with Simon Pegg and Nick Frost finds the former playing ne’er do well Gary King, a 40-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.
