The Three Flavours Cornetto Trilogy Explained

cornetto 2What started off as nothing more than a repeated joke in Shaun of the Dead and Hot Fuzz has given way to a full-fledged trilogy with the release of the new film, The World’s End. In this video from IGN, writer-director Edgar Wright, writer-star Simon Pegg, and co-star Nick Frost explain how the simple repeated use of a reference to a brand of convenience store ice cream cone became a thematic continuation from one film to the next, reusing certain gags, ideas, actors, and the overall theme of friendship to create a logical end-point, despite having none of the same story elements or characters.

Find out if everything comes full circle when The World’s End hits theaters on August 23rd.

    These lads have done more for nerdy comedy In Britain/Ireland than anyone else I can think of. Even if they did pave the way for dozens of awful rom zoms..zomedies..whatever.
