Edgar Wright has revealed he is holding his own reunion at the premiere of The World's End in London, with his friends who inspired the film.

The director co-wrote the sci-fi comedy with Simon Pegg, about a group of childhood friends who reunite after 20 years to recreate an epic pub crawl in their home town, culminating at The World's End pub.

Edgar revealed he was inspired by a pub crawl he went on himself with a group of friends in his home town 20 years ago, and has invited them all to the premiere.

He said: "The people that I went on a pub crawl with in 1993 are all coming to the world premiere. A couple I haven't seen for 10 years. I emailed them all with the trailer and said, 'Does any of this seem familiar, minus the robots?!' So that's going to be funny."

The film stars Simon Pegg, Nick Frost, former Bond girl Rosamund Pike and Martin Freeman, among others, and sees the pub crawl disrupted when the friends discover the town has been taken over by robots.

The World's End marks the final instalment of Simon, Nick and Edgar's so-called "Cornetto trilogy", which includes hit comedies Shaun Of The Dead and Hot Fuzz.

It will open in UK cinemas on July 19, 2013.
