ROUGH CUT (NO REPORTER NARRATION) STORY: Simon Pegg, Nick Frost and Rosamund Pike hit the red carpet for the film premiere of "The World's End" in Los Angeles on Wednesday (August 21). The dark British comedy, which follows "Shaun of the Dead" and "Hot Fuzz," is the final installment in the "Cornetto Trilogy," an homage to the frozen dessert. "The World's End" involves five childhood friends returning to their hometown for a massive pub crawl. As they revisit the same pubs they went to 20 years ago, they realize they have embarked on a journey to save humankind from a robot invasion. Pegg shines as an obnoxiously immature 40-something desperately trying to cling to his youth. All three of the films chronicled Pegg and his co-star Nick Frost facing a cataclysmic turn of events - a zombie apocalypse in "Shaun of the Dead," a murderous neighborhood watch in "Hot Fuzz" and the robot invasion in "World's End." The film hits U.S. theaters on August 23.
