The Cornetto Trilogy is a series of comedy films directed by Edgar Wright and starring Simon Pegg and Nick Frost. It consists of Shaun of the Dead (2004), Hot Fuzz (2007), and The World's End (2013).

Though three films are not set in the same universe, they share a theme and general progression.[1] The name "Cornetto trilogy" is a reference to the Cornetto ice cream treats. Each film falls into different genre comedy types which are loosely associated with the three flavors of Cornetto: Shaun of the Dead, a bloody zombie movie, is associated with the red-covered Strawberry Cornetto; Hot Fuzz, a buddy-cop movie, is associated with the blue-wrapped Original Cornetto; The World's End, an alien-invasion movie, is associated with the green-colored Mint Chocolate Chip Cornetto.
