As they've done in the past, Regal Entertainment is offering a marathon-style screening leading up to a new film—but unlike their excruciating, 700-hour-long endurance test of "Every Single Marvel Movie Ever Made Leading Up to a Midnight Screening of The Avengers
," or their surprisingly unsuccessful Dead Man
/The Lone Ranger
one seems like something reasonable people might actually want to attend and have a good time while doing so: Edgar Wright, Simon Pegg, and Nick Frost's complete Cornetto Trilogy
, with 2004's Shaun of the Dead
and 2007's Hot Fuzz
followed by their latest, The World's End
, which comes out in America on August 23. Basically: That sounds great, I'd do that, excellent idea, etc.
Via Pegg's twitter
, the details are on Regal's site
; locally, there'll be screenings in Portland and Tigard. Tickets are $20—which certainly isn't terrible for three movies, though if you're already planning on waiting to see The World's End
until it's at a beer theater (which really does feel more appropriate), there might be cheaper ways
to replicate the whole thing.
