Where to Stream The Cornetto Trilogy Online – Shaun of the Dead, Hot Fuzz & The World's End

Are you looking to watch the Cornetto trilogy online? This guide will show you where to watch every movie in Edgar Wright's iconic comedy film series on popular streaming services in the United Kingdom.

​​Back in 2004, Simon Pegg and Edgar Wright decided to turn their small-screen success into a string of action-packed feature film collaborations. The duo first worked together on Wright’s directorial debut series, Asylum, before reuniting for Spaced, which Pegg co-wrote and starred in with Nick Frost. In one episode of the two-season show, Pegg’s character Tim had a hallucination about a zombie apocalypse. This became the inspiration for the first film in the iconic Cornetto trilogy.

Shaun of the Dead – Strawberry

Shaun of the Dead follows Simon Pegg as Shaun, a regular salesman who has to save his loved ones when a zombie outbreak lands in London. With a humble budget of $6 million, the film, fronted by Simon Pegg and Nick Frost, went on to critical acclaim and gained a cult following and grossed $38.7 million at the box office. Channel 4 went on to rank it third on a list of 50 Greatest Comedy Films of All Time.

Hot Fuzz – Classico

Three years later, the trio reunited in the buddy cop movie, Hot Fuzz, which was a satirical take on over 100 well-known action films. It followed London police sergeant Nicholas Angel as he was relocated to a supposedly sleepy village of Sandford, where he struggled to adjust to the slow pace of the small-town community. However, as the bodies piled up, Nicholas and his new buddy Danny become suspicious that this award-winning idyllic village is a front for something far more sinister.

Hot Fuzz received widespread praise for its visual effects and action sequences and went onto gross over $80 million at the box office on its $12 million budget, making it the most financially successful film in the trilogy.

The World's End – Mint

The final film, The World’s End, was released in 2013, and saw a group of five friends return to their hometown to complete a pub crawl on the same night as an alien invasion occurs. Once again, it opened to positive reviews from critics and secured $46 million at the worldwide box office on a budget of $20 million. Regular cast members Pegg and Frost returned alongside Martin Freeman, Paddy Considine with Rosamund Pike and Pierce Brosnan.

You may be wondering why Shaun of the Dead, Hot Fuzz and The World's End are collectively known as the Cornetto Trilogy, or 'Three Flavours Cornetto'. Though these three films are not connected in storyline, nor do they feature the same characters or fictional locations, fans spotted that each film features a different flavour of Cornetto.

In Shaun of the Dead, Ed tucks into a strawberry Cornetto for a hangover cure, which actually led to the cast being given free ice creams by the brand for the after party. After this donation, the trio decided to feature another Cornetto in Hot Fuzz, this time the classic blue Cornetto, but sadly they didn’t get any more freebies. Edgar Wright joked when promoting Hot Fuzz that the Cornettos represent the trilogy like Krzysztof Kieslowski’s Three Colors film trilogy (Blue, White, and Red). After this Easter egg was pointed out, a mint chocolate chip Cornetto wrapper is seen at the end of The World’s End.

After all this talk of ice cream and these comedies, it’s time to grab a Cornetto and dive into the cult classic Cornetto trilogy. Here’s where to stream all three movies online in chronological order.
