The World’s End
CHANNEL 4, 9PM
The third film in the Cornetto trilogy – after Shaun of the Dead and Hot Fuzz – may not be the best, but fans of Simon Pegg, Edgar Wright and Nick Frost will love it all the same. The plot focuses on a 40-year-old man who refuses to move on from his past. While continuing to hold onto his childhood, he drags four reluctant mates back to their home town to recreate the pub crawl they enjoyed as teenagers. It involves a dozen hostelries (similar to the Otley Run), but as they stumble from one to another, they also stumble upon a threat to the entire human race. Martin Freeman also stars.
Last orders: Simon Pegg stars in the sci-fi comedy.
