  2. 2. Pre-production: The worlds End  Starting off as an idea created by Edgar wright at the age of 21, In which a group of young guys go on a pub crawl, he later realised that the concept would work better with adults who are returning to their old home town.  The ideas behind the film were to take the idea of “feeling alienated in your own home town” too literally and ending up with a sci-fi.

Similar to the other cornetto trilogy films that feature a similar cast.  Compared to the other cornetto films, it is clear that there was a vast amount more technology used in the films creation, probably due to Edgar’s involvement in Scott Pilgrim Vs the world.  What has not changed is Edgar and Simon’s passion for the film, and the extraordinary detail that goes into it.  Filming ended on 22 December 2012.
