Around here at AMC, we're HUGE Edgar Wright fans. He's one of the most original, innovative directors to come around in a long time and on August 22nd we're giving you a chance to see his CORNETTO TRILOGY with SHAUN OF THE DEAD, HOT FUZZ and THE WORLD'S END!

So what's a Cornetto? Wikipedia said it best, so we're going to quote them:

Each film in the trilogy is connected to a Cornetto ice cream, featuring scenes in which one of the main characters purchases a Cornetto of the appropriate flavour. Shaun of the Dead features a red strawberry flavoured Cornetto, which signifies the film's bloody and gory elements, Hot Fuzz includes the blue original Cornetto, to signify the police element to the film, and The World's End features the green mint choc-chip flavour in a nod to aliens and science fiction.

And here's what a Cornetto looks like.

Yum! We'll take 10!

Alright, let's get to what you're in store for on Aug 22nd!

The trilogy will be playing at 29 AMCs around the country and the list is below. We start with SHAUN OF THE DEAD at 5:30PM local time, followed by HOT FUZZ AT 7:35PM, leading into THE WORLD'S END at 10PM. Tickets for the event are going on sale today at AMC locations and online here.

A few other details:

  • AMC Stubs members will receive $5 bonus bucks to use the day of the event! Each guest will receive an AMC exclusive Cornetto Trilogy t-shirt!

    I agree that fewer people see anime. I have to admit that if my daughter's hadn't convinced me to watch Attack On Titan I would never have watched an anime series. Through that I was introduced to anime movies and other forms of anime. If they had not convinced me to watch some with them so we could talk about it I would never have seen any. This is not because I have a bias but simply because I had never really heard of anime and had no frame of reference for it. Spirited Away is a beautiful movie that truly is an experience. I liked Howl's Moving Castle. I have Princess Nonoke and Graveyard of the Fireflies on my list. Akira is on my "maybe" list, the trailers just don't appeal to me; not because they are anime but because the content of the trailer is not appealing. Period. Give it another generation or two of everyone being introduced to anime and whatever comes after anime as a matter of course; part of the life experience that includes Snow White by Disney and Toy Story by Pixar and Curse Of The Were Rabbit by DreamWorks and Whatever Comes Next by Whomever Comes Next. Give it time...

    Of course it's most popular how else can you quantify a "best" movie. You can't it's not possible. No one watched the Japanese movies so they don't win. It's really that simple. But also in money made they beat them So there's that.

    Why is there so much complaining about a fun movie bracket that nobody can truly say one movie is better. It's all subjective just cause your movie that nobody saw didn't win don't whine about it inform your friends make them watch it remember this is all for fun
