Universal Studios Home Entertainment has officially announced the Blu-ray/DVD/UltraViolet combo pack release of director Edgar Wright's The World's End, starring Simon Pegg, Nick Frost, Paddy Considine, Martin Freeman, Eddie Marsan, Rosamund Pike, David Bradley and Pierce Brosnan. The approaching-apocalypse sci-fi comedy arrives on Blu-ray on November 19th.
Synopsis: Twenty years after their first epic pub crawl attempt, the "five musketeers" -- Gary King (Pegg), Peter Page (Marsan), Oliver "O-Man" Chamberlain (Freeman), Steven Prince (Considine) and Andy Knightley (Frost) -- reunite in their home town to complete the ultimate challenge: one night, five friends, twelve bars, a boozy quest on which only the strongest will survive. But after a bizarre series of encounters with the out-of-this-world locals, they soon realize that reaching their final pub, The World's End, may be the least of their troubles. They're having the time of their lives, ready to take on the world… but tonight they may have to save it.

Favorite movie of the year with Iron Man 3,Man of Steel(despite their faults),Warm Bodies distant 2nd,3rd,& 4ths. Definitely the weirdest/wackiest of the Cornetto Trilogy,and didn't join its brethren Hot Fuzz & Shaun of the Dead in my Favorite 4 Movies of All Time(other 2 are Terminator 2 & Dawn of the Dead),but was still a welcome change of loveable goofiness. Day 1. Wish there was another Wright/Tarantino Commentary tho. Otherwise,as usual,a great looking features package for a fantastic movie(that joins Iron Man 3,Dark Knight Rises,& Man of Steel in being decisive even among its target audience/prior fanbase).
**** YEAH I LOVED THIS MOVIE!!! Also Edgar Wright should be in charge of all extras for Bluray releases! That guy knows how to STUFF a Bluray with extra goodies to the gills lol. Day one buy if I can xD
