Nick Frost & Edgar Wright: 'The World's End' Interview

If you want to make monumental things like the end of the world and hitting 40 into comedic, laugh-out-loud jokes, then you need look no further than director Edgar Wright.

His latest movie (and last in the Cornetto Trilogy, following "Shaun of the Dead" and "Hot Fuzz"), "The World's End," takes satire to another level as the apocalypse settles in on a small British town. When old buddies (Nick Frost, Martin Freeman, Paddy Considine) are brought together by their former leader, Gary King (Simon Pegg) for one last night of no-holds-barred pub crawling, everything turns into a disaster.

Moviefone caught up with Wright and Frost to talk about this latest film, what it's like getting older, and how the Mayans got the apocalypse all wrong. (Wright even gives us his own Mr. Moviefone impression.)

Watch the video interview, above.

"The World's End" opens in theaters on August 23.
