'The World's End' Soundtrack Is A Glorious Tribute To The 1990s
The World's End has received rave reviews, though the soundtrack could be a popular record this summer.
The World's End - the third and final instalment of Edgar Wright's 'Cornetto' comedy trilogy starring Simon Pegg, Nick Frost and Paddy Considine - hits cinemas nationwide on July 19, 2013. It centres around five friends who attempt a notorious pub crawl in their unassuming hometown - twelve pubs, twelve pints and the only the strongest will survive.
Of course, the mind of Edgar Wright doesn't work think along quite such straight lines and the boozy group unwittingly become humankind's only hope for survival.
Also starring British talent Rosamund Pike, Eddie Marsen and The Hobbit star Martin Freeman, The World's End promises a hugely enjoyable finale for the trilogy - also featuring Shaun of the Dead and Hot Fuzz - though the soundtrack is worth checking out too.
Given Simon Pegg's character's desire to hark back to the 1990s and put right unfinished drinking business, The World's End is littered with laid lack anthems from the baggy and Britpop eras, including Primal Scream's Loaded, There's No Other Way by Blur, Step on by the Happy Mondays and the Beautiful South's dreamy Old Red Eyes Is Back.
It's been a big couple of years for the returning Stone Roses and Jarvis Cocker's Pulp, and audiences will hear both Do You Remember The First Time and Fool's Gold.
Us? We're pretty excited about the inclusion of St Etienne's Join Our Club though clearly no pub-crawl movie would be complete without The Housemartins' Happy Hour.
The World's End still retains a perfect 100% rating on the review aggregating website Rotten Tomatoes. "At once a Big Chill-style old-pal reunion story and an Invasion of the Body Snatchers homage doused in beer and bad-boy humor," said industry rag The Hollywood Reporter.
