Hot Fuzz Voted Best Film In The Cornetto Trilogy On Series' 15th Anniversary

Hot Fuzz Voted Best Film In The Cornetto Trilogy On Series' 15th Anniversary

It's been 15 years since the 'Cornetto Trilogy' kicked off, with Shaun of the Dead hitting cinemas exactly one and a half decades ago today. Doesn't time fly, eh?

Although the zombie comedy (dubbed a 'rom-zom-com') wasn't the first time we'd seen Simon Pegg and Nick Frost appear on screen together - TV show Spaced was released all the way back in 1999. However, it was the start of the wonderfully nicknamed 'Cornetto Trilogy', which consisted of Shaun of the Dead, Hot Fuzz and World's End.

The trilogy, created by Pegg and director Edgar Wright, has got quite the cult following - but when it comes to which is best, well, you guys have spoken and...drum roll please...it's Hot Fuzz, which only very, very narrowly beat Shaun of the Dead with 49 percent and 46 percent of the vote respectively.

Personally, I can't help but think Shaun of the Dead was absolutely robbed here, but I'll stand by democracy, I guess.

"Hot Fuzz... just for the fence jumping scene!" one voter said. I mean, yeah, fair point, it was funny but so was seeing a zombie get a record lashed at her head.

Another said: "Hot Fuzz edges Shaun of the Dead SLIGHTLY."

Meanwhile, World's End trailed in last place, getting just five percent of your votes, which seems harsh, but you have to look at what it was up against.

In honour of it being 15 years since the Cornetto Trilogy began, Wright took to Twitter to share a photo of the cast of Shaun of the Dead, writing: "Last night was 15 years since the London premiere of Shaun of the Dead. It was such a great night, possibly my favourite after party too. I look back and wonder why we never got our shit together to take a group photo of the cast!"

He added: "Also: at the after party they gave out free Strawberry Cornettos (as featured in the movie) so me and Simon contrived to mention Cornettos in the next one as a way of getting more free ice cream next time around... (we didn't)."

Seems like the perfect excuse to go back and watch all three movies really, doesn't it?
