If you’re geared up for The World’s End (and you should be because it’s great), then I recommend watching the first two parts of the “Cornetto Trilogy”, Shaun of the Dead and Hot Fuzz. Rather than watch those movies at home, we’d like to you to come out to The Plaza, and watch the double-feature with Collider and the Atlanta Film Festival! There will be trivia, a Shaun of the Dead/Hot Fuzz costume contest, and a competition to see who can eat a Drumstick ice cream (i.e. “bootlegged American Cornetto”) the fastest without getting brain freeze. The prizes will include t-shirts, Blu-rays, and passes to see an early screening of The World’s End. And how much does it cost to attend this excellent event? Two dollars and five cents ($1 per movie plus $.05 processing fee). But if you put in the promo code “collider” and are one of the first 100 people to order a ticket, you’re getting in for free. How’s that for a slice of fried gold?
Hit the jump for more details, and click here to order your ticket (you can get up to 2 double-feature tickets). The Shaun of the Dead/Hot Fuzz double-feature will be on Monday, August 12th at the Plaza starting at 8pm.
So how can you get prizes for the costume contest? We will be looking for Best Shaun, Best British Police Officer, and Best Zombie (I know Shaun and the zombie are easy, but I hope someone will go the distance and try police officer).
Here’s the flyer with all of the pertinent info. Hope to see you there!
