Last week was a bust at the box office, with Kick-Ass 2 and the Steve Jobs biopic totally tanking.

This weekend may be a different story with the release of The World’s End, the highly anticipated Edgar Wright comedy starring his winning Shaun of the Dead/Hot Fuzz team, Simon Pegg and Nick Frost.

The movie about a pub-crawl-turned-robot-battle has received very positive reviews and looks like it will be worth the ticket price. This week five lucky Pop Candy readers will win tickets to the flick, courtesy of Fandango.

To enter, you must answer this question:

What’s your favorite robot in pop culture?

Send your response to popcandy@usatoday.com with the subject line “WORLD’S END” by Aug. 21 at 4 p.m. ET. Five winners will be selected randomly, and I may share some of my favorites on the blog.

Good luck! For more giveaway glee, note that Fandango is holding its own World’s End-themed contest. If you win our giveaway this week, your tickets will be valid anytime from opening day (Friday) until the end of the year (though I doubt it’ll be in theaters that long!).
