This weekend, the boys are back in the final installment in Edgar Wright and Simon Pegg’s “Three Flavours Cornetto Trilogy“! Like most of you, I am a huge fan of Shaun of the Dead and Hot Fuzz. Now the creative genius behind these cult hits are back in The World’s End!

Synopsis: This weekend, the boys are back in the final installment in Edgar Wright and Simon Pegg’s “Cornetto Trilogy”! Like most of you, I am a huge fan of Shaun of the Dead and Hot Fuzz. Now the creative genius behind these cult hits are back iA signature brew of camaraderie, knockabout humor, excessive quaffing, questionable life choices, hand-to-hand combat, and explosive surprises, The World’s End reteams director Edgar Wright with actors Simon Pegg and Nick Frost, following their hits Shaun of the Dead (2004) and Hot Fuzz (2007).

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 their voluble onetime ringleader, 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!

The World’s End stars Simon Pegg, Nick Frost, Martin Freeman, Paddy Considine, Eddie Marsan, and Rosamund Pike and opens in theatres on August 23rd, 2013! Thanks to the amazing (and most generous) team at Focus Features, we have an awesome The World’s End prize pack for you to win!

OH, WOW! Lost alumni, Evangeline Lilly is lookin’ sexy and fierce in the first look at Sylvan Elf, Tauriel in Peter Jackson’s The Hobbit: The Desolution of Smaug! Evangeline Lilly spoke with EW about her role in The Desolution of Smaug and drops hints of a love story with a certain Elf we met before.

“Tauriel’s relationship with Legolas is significant. They’ve known each other since they were children, and Legolas’ dad, [Elven king] Thranduil, has a soft spot for Tauriel and sees something very special in her. So if you grow up side by side, and your dad has a very special spot in his heart for this young woman who’s a fantastic warrior, I think it’s hard not to notice her.” She laughs. “That’s probably as much as I can say.”

I imagine Tauriel is going to be one very popular cosplay during convention season. Lucky us!

The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug drops on December 13, 2013.

How come we don’t get anything cool like this in the United States? BBC Worldwide Australia & New Zealand and Vivid Sydney teamed up to create a very cool “light celebration” for the 50th anniversary of Doctor Who. A cool music video accompanied by the music of composer, Murray Gold was projected in Australia’s Customs House Sydney. This is brilliant and also serves as a cool tribute to the Matt Smith AKA Eleventh Doctor who will be finishing his run as The Doctor later this year.

Whoa, whoa, WHOA! Tabloid newspaper, The Daily Mail has posted that the current and Eleventh Doctor, Matt Smith has called is quits on Doctor Who. Of course, it’s only a tabloid so you shouldn’t pay too much attention to it, but now, The Telegraph is reporting that Matt Smith is indeed quitting the gig that put him on the map after shooting the Doctor Who 50th anniversary special and 2013 Christmas special.

“Doctor Who has been the most brilliant experience for me as an actor and a bloke, and that largely is down to the cast, crew and fans of the show.

“I’m incredibly grateful to all the cast and crew who work tirelessly every day, to realise all the elements of the show and deliver Doctor Who to the audience.

“Many of them have become good friends and I’m incredibly proud of what we have achieved over the last four years.”

“The fans of Doctor Who around the world are unlike any other; they dress up, shout louder, know more about the history of the show (and speculate more about the future of the show) in a way that I’ve never seen before, your dedication is truly remarkable.

“Thank you so very much for supporting my incarnation of the Time Lord, number Eleven, who I might add is not done yet, I’m back for the 50th anniversary and the Christmas special.”

Even though this was bound to happen, this is still sad news considering Matt Smith is loved by many new and old Whovians. It will now be interesting to see who will be taking over as the Twelveth Doctor.

OH HELL YES! After being very coy about his participation in the Power Rangers 20th anniversary, THE original bad ass Ranger, Jason David Frank AKA Tommy Oliver AKA The Green Ranger AKA The White Ranger AKA The Red Zeo Ranger AKA The Red Turbo Ranger AKA The Red Zeo Ranger 5 AKA The Black Dino Ranger will be featured in Power Rangers Super Megaforce 20th anniversary this year! It’s been a ten years since JDF last wore a Ranger suit (as the Black Dino Ranger on Power Rangers Dino Thunder), but it looks he’s has no problem getting back in Ranger form. JDF has posted set pictures on his Facebook page of him in the Green Ranger costume and also holding the iconic White Ranger’s trusty weapon, Saba! Tommy might be flying solo as the only representative of the original Mighty Morphin Power Rangers team as David Yost (Blue Ranger) and Walter Jones (Black Ranger) passed on the reunion (even though they still cash in on their Ranger fame at conventions) and Amy Jo Johnson (Pink Ranger) and Austin St. John (Red Ranger) pretty much moved on and has been absent from the Ranger scene. As you may know, Thuy Trang (Yellow Ranger) tragically passed away in a car accident in 2001. Even if Tommy is the only one to represent, what is the possibility that Bulk and Skull will make a come back?
