Simon Pegg talks The World's End

Simon Pegg has been trying on all manner of fancy clothes and having his photo taken for a fashion shoot of late, and took the time to chat about the concluding instalment of the Cornetto Trilogy, The World's End. Here's what he had to say:
“[Edgar and I] make comedies and both love genre cinema but neither Shaun Of The Dead or Hot Fuzz are parodies. The World's End isn't a send up in any way, in fact we've gone out of our way not to populate the film with references to other movies, In order to avoid that label."
He continues by discussing the tissue that connects the films:
“The theme that will bind the three films together is a preoccupation with the struggle of the individual against the collective. Shaun Vs Zombies, Angel Vs the NWA, Gary King Vs (???). Thematically it will all make sense when the three films can be viewed consecutively. This sounds lofty but they form a dialectic sequence, which I hope film students will write essays about. Shaun Of The Dead = evolution, Hot Fuzz = devolution, The World's End = revolution. Jesus, you can take the boy out of Bristol University drama department...”
So there you have it. We will get to see if it all ties in as nicely as suggested above when The World's End is released on August 14th. It's a film, as you might have guessed, that we're immensely looking forward to.
