The cars in The World’s End give away the twist

0

The World’s End is the spiritual end to what is colloquial known as The Cornetto trilogy, a series of films loosely connected by three men, Nick Frost, Simon Pegg and Edgar Wright. Known for his kinetic visual style and masterful, almost John Wick-esque use of Checkov’s gun, Wright never makes a film that isn’t crammed full of random, blink-and-you’d-miss-them details.
