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!
