Comic Con attendees looking for something to do at 1pm on Thursday, July 18th and who want a shot at winning tickets to the exclusive The World’s End Comic Con Party may want to participate in a three hour ‘fan crawl’. Beginning at 1pm at The Commons SD, fans will be tested with Shaun of the Dead and Hot Fuzz trivia while making their way to the Hotel Solamar and the Hard Rock Hotel. The competition will continue until 12 people emerge victorious.
The 12 winners will receive passes to the invitation-only party taking place from 7-11pm at the Hard Rock Hotel’s Float Bar where Focus Features’ The World’s End director Edgar Wright and actors Nick Frost and Simon Pegg will be in attendance. But even those who don’t win The World’s End: IGN Fan Crawl will be treated to “good food and fine ales” just for participating. And, IGN says there will also be special giveaways during the Fan Crawl including a few passes to a The World’s End sneak screening on July 19th. For more info on the Fan Crawl, visit
However, if you’re not up for participating in the Fan Crawl, you can still check out Wright, Pegg, and Frost during The World’s End‘s Comic Con panel in Hall H on Friday, July 19th.
The World’s End Plot:
The tale of The World’s End begins on June 22nd, 1990. In their suburban U.K. town of Newton Haven, five boys in the prime of their teenage youth celebrate the end of school by attempting an epic pub crawl together. Despite their enthusiasm and the downing of a slew of pints of beer, they fall short of seeing their quest through, to the last pub on their list, The World’s End. Twenty-odd years later, “the five musketeers” have each left their hometown and are now husbands, fathers, men with careers – with the flashing-red-light exception of Gary King (Simon Pegg), who is now a 40-year-old man trapped at the cigarette end of his teens.
The irrepressible Gary, keenly aware of his estrangement from his onetime closest friend Andy (Nick Frost), becomes hellbent on trying “The Golden Mile” drinking marathon again. He convinces Andy, Steven (Paddy Considine), Oliver (Martin Freeman), and Peter (Eddie Marsan) to stage an encore, and one Friday afternoon they are all reunited. Gary is in his element: the mandate is one night, five guys, twelve pubs – imbibing at least one pint apiece at each establishment. Arriving in Newton Haven, they re-encounter Oliver’s sister Sam (Rosamund Pike), for whom Gary and Steven each still carry a torch. As the gang attempts along the way to reconcile their past and present, an increasingly insane and dangerous series of encounters with old haunts and acquaintances makes them realize that the real struggle is for the future, not just theirs but humankind’s. Reaching The World’s End is the least of their worries…
The World’s End opens in theaters on August 23, 2013.
