Universal Pictures chairwoman Donna Langley came to the CinemaCon party ready to rock and roll. The audience was thrilled to see brand new trailers for most of their upcoming slate of films.

Edgar Wright’s The World’s End might the final entry in the so-called Cornetto Trilogy, but there’s a lot more than that going on in it. Wright and stars Simon Pegg and Nick Frost talk about some of the movie’s themes in a new featurette, Not What It Used To Be (as in ‘The future…’).

Check it out after the jump. The World’s End premieres on August 23rd.
