He inflicted zombies on London in 'Shaun of the Dead' and now he's threatening civilisation in 'The World's End'. So Edgar Wright ought to know a thing or two about the apocalypse. But how would he cope in a real-life extinction situation? We decided to test his know-how with the fiendish Apocalypse Roulette challenge.
The rules were simple. Using a high-tech system (involving bowls and bits of paper) we presented him with a randomly selected London location, a doomsday scenario and a single object with which to defend himself. He would then have to use all his mental agility to construct a scenario in which he might have a chance of survival.
