You’ll be forgiven if you’re not exactly sure what The World’s End is at the moment. After all, production only began this September and the film itself is due for release in August 2013 (take that Mayans!) The World’s End is Simon Pegg and Edgar Wright’s brand new movie; their third together to be exact, after Shaun of the Dead and Hot Fuzz.

After the unprecedented success of their first two movies, it was only a matter of time before the next one was green-lit. But in all honesty, with both Simon Pegg and Edgar Wright’s careers suddenly taking off like short-fused bottle rockets, I’m actually surprised that it’s this soon. Surprised, but also excited like you wouldn’t believe.

I’m not the only Pegg/ Wright fan out there, not by any margin. There are millions of us, and hey, if you ask me, the pair have flat out earned our loyalty in sweat, blood and sheer comedic gusto. So, with that in mind, I’m there for The World’s End, with more bells on than a herd of magical reindeer.

And so should you be too, if you have any interest in quality British film. Of course I’m not just going to make a statement like that without backing it up; here are ten reasons why.
