'The World's End': Cornetto Trilogy Tie-Ins, References, & Cameos

The great Russian author Anton Chekov believed that nothing in a narrative should be irreplaceable or without purpose; he famously stated that if a rifle is hanging on the wall, then it either must go off at some point in the story or it must be removed. Today we call this principle 'Chevok's gun', an expression about including only what's necessary in a dramatic work.

Wright clearly agrees with Chekov on some level or another - or perhaps he just really hates fences. Either way, no fence goes unbroken in the Cornetto films, which all see characters blunder over, barrel through, and thoroughly topple pickets and posts amidst all manner of pandemonium.
