Simon Pegg and Nick Frost Talk “The World’s End”, Not Compromising the Film’s Britishness, Art, Twitter, Ben Affleck Playing Batman, Pegg’s Recent STAR TREK Comments, and More.
Fans of Simon Pegg and Edgar Wright turned out in force at theaters this weekend, as the third and final entry in their thematic “Cornetto trilogy” of films gave the writer/director team their strongest opening yet at the U.S. box office.
Showing on only 1,549 screens, the film — which also stars Nick Frost and Sherlock‘s Martin Freeman — nevertheless racked up $8.9 million in sales across its opening weekend, a take that put it in fourth place overall. But the film received a significantly better per-screen average than the third-placed Mortal Instruments: City of Bones. It’s also the best opening weekend that any of the trilogy has had in the U.S., beating Shaun of the Dead‘s $3.3 million and Hot Fuzz‘s $5.8 million.
