If you have not got anything planned this weekend then have a look at some of the great events taking place.
The final part of Simon Pegg's Three Flavours Cornetto Trilogy, titled The World's End (15) has hit the cinemas this week, with the apocalypse being a fitting end to the trilogy. In the fictional community of Newton Haven, the film starts of set in 1990 showing a group of 5 teenagers as they form a friendship around a failed attempt at a pub crawl, finishing at The World's End pub. 20 years later Gary King (Simon Pegg) decides to bring the group back together to complete this 'golden mile', which includes Andrew (nick Frost), Steven (Paddy Considine), Oliver (Martin Freeman) and Peter (Eddie Marsan). However the pub crawl comes to a quick end when the robotic doppelgangers of the residents turn up to cause havoc. Overall as with the other two films it is full of visual gags, with the relationship between Pegg and Frost producing some of the best lines of the film.
