In each Cornetto film, Wright uses pubs as places for his heroes to let off some post-breakup steam, bond over some drinks, or revisit the good old days. He also inevitably turns those bars into zany battlegrounds, pitting his cast against undead sieges, murderous villagers, and alien invaders.
Halfway through Shaun of the Dead, Shaun's and Ed's go-to tavern - the Winchester - becomes their defense against the onslaught of zeds, not to mention the setting for some heavy personal confrontations. Meanwhile, Hot Fuzz's local pub serves as the backdrop for a blazing gunfight between Sandford's finest and the bloodthirsty townsfolk cabal.
Meanwhile, The World's End zips from one watering hole to the next, staging chases and numerous action scenes across the whole film. The most memorable of these, however, occurs in the Beehive, and while we won't give away more than that, the sequence - choreographed by Jackie Chan Stunt Team leader Brad Allan - is one for the books.
