THE WORLD’S END and The Cornetto Trilogy Hit Blu-ray November 19th

     October 8, 2013


Cornetto Trilogy fans, rejoice!  The brilliant final installment in the loosely connected film trilogy from writer/director Edgar Wright, co-writer/star Simon Pegg, and co-star Nick Frost will be released on Blu-ray in the US on November 19th and in the UK on November 25th.  In addition to The World’s End, a Cornetto Trilogy collection of all three films—Shaun of the Dead, Hot Fuzz, and TWE—will also be released on Blu-ray at that time.  In addition to all of the extras found on the previous Blu-ray releases, the Cornetto Trilogy Blu-ray set will include interactive screenplays for all three films.  Unfortunately, that’s it in the collector’s set exclusives department, so hopefully a more extensive one will be released down the road.

Nevertheless, the Blu-ray for The World’s End is stacked with bonus feature goodness, as the disc includes a cast commentary, a technical commentary, featurettes covering everything from the stunts to hair and make-up tests, rehearsal footage, deleted scenes, outtakes, and more.  Additionally, the disc includes a clip montage highlighting all the hidden clues and hints throughout the film and a flip chart that reveals Wright and Peg’s step-by-step process of creating the story.  Hit the jump for the full list of extras and to pre-order both Blu-rays.
