10E2191: The Three Flavours Cornetto Trilogy (Comes To An End)

Cornetto are gas-station ice cream cones in the UK. Ok, now read the wiki...
"The Three Flavours Cornetto trilogy (also known as the Blood and Ice Cream trilogy) is a series of comedy films directed by Edgar Wright, written by Wright and Simon Pegg, produced by Nira Park, and starring Pegg and Nick Frost. The films are Shaun of the Dead, Hot Fuzz and [upcoming -ed] The World's End
Each film in the trilogy is connected to a Cornetto ice cream flavour – both of the films released to date feature scenes in which one of the main characters purchases a Cornetto of the appropriate flavour. Shaun of the Dead features a red strawberry flavoured Cornetto, which signifies the film's bloody and gory elements..
...Hot Fuzz includes the blue original Cornetto, to signify the police element to the film...
 ...and The World's End will feature the green mint choc-chip flavour. The use of the three flavours/colours of Cornetto is a reference to Krzysztof Kieślowski's Three Colours film trilogy." [love Kieślowski'. seriously, the Dekalog - watch them. -ed.]

No idea how the alien invasion bit will work out but really looking forward to this... #wordplay #runninggags
