How Nostalgia Inspired Edgar Wright To Write The World’s End


“The World’s End” starts with a montage set to some brilliant old skool dance music as Gary King (Simon Pegg) tells his AA group about the best night of his life. On their last day of school, he and his four best mates attempted The Golden Mile, an epic pub crawl around their hometown Newton Haven. They only managed a pint in nine of the 12 establishments along the route before bailing out. Now, over 20 years later, Gary wants to make amends.

A few pints in, it becomes clear that the townsfolk have been replaced by sinister blue-blooded “blanks.” To avoid suspicion, Gary argues that the best course of action is to keep drinking and complete the Golden Mile…
