Last week I had the pleasure of interviewing the wonderful Edgar Wright (which was possibly the best Birthday present ever) .Wright not only happens to be not my favourite directors but also the man behind Shaun of the Dead, Hot Fuzz, Scott Pilgrim vs the World and The World’s End. To promote the DVD and Blu-ray home entertainment release of The World’s End, Wright has been chatting about the film and the process of getting it to the big screen.
As you know The World’s End is the closing film in a trilogy known as the ‘three flavours cornetto trilogy‘ that began in 2003 with the acclaimed Shaun of the Dead and continued in 2007 with Hot Fuzz. Wright has also revealed a few details about those films and how the superb trio of comedies came to be, which would be exciting enough even if the excellent director was not brimming with charisma, »

Top 10 Duncan Bowles 4 Dec 2013 - 06:45
Duncan salutes his personal choice of the 2013 action movies that deserved just a little more love...
This article contains spoilers for each of the films mentioned. Not necessarily big ones, but you might want to steer clear of The World's End entry if you've not seen that.
2013 has been a great year for action. We’ve had multiple comic book heroes fighting it out on the big screen, with Thor and Iron Man continuing Marvel’s run of great movies, the return of the R-rated antics of Kick-Ass and at long last an F-bomb loaded, bloody incarnation of The Wolverine (though it’s worth pointing out that the unrated edition in the UK only comes with the 3D version of the home release, a trend I hope doesn’t continue).
From a sci-fi angle, we’ve had robots fighting monsters in Pacific Rim and »

Featurette: The Boxtrolls

The next classic of animation is on the way, at least, I have my suspicions that The Boxtrolls is going to win people over, and become a favorite. From the makers of Coraline and ParaNorman, The Boxtrolls is a stop-motion and CG hybrid about the town of Cheesebridge and the curious “trolls” that live underneath it. Wearing boxes, and with a certain affinity for cheese, the trolls are something of a town legend, but the strange assortment of monsters have raised a human boy since infancy, and worlds are about to collide.
This is one to get on your radar.
Check out the new Bts trailer above, as well as a teaser trailer and more info below, and let me know what you think about it. If nothing else, this one is going to be worth it for the voice cast.

Watch the new behind-the-scenes trailer for Focus Features' The Boxtrolls animation from Laika, featuring the voices of Ben Kingsley, introducing Isaac Hempstead-Wright, Elle Fanning, Jared Harris, Toni Collette, Nick Frost, Richard Ayoade, Tracy Morgan, and Simon Pegg. Anthony Stacchi and Graham Annable direct the upcoming 3D stop-motion and CG hybrid animated feature film which opens in theaters from September 26th, 2014. This is a comedic fable that unfolds in Cheesebridge, a posh Victorian-era town obsessed with wealth, class, and the stinkiest of fine cheeses. Beneath its charming cobblestone streets dwell the Boxtrolls, foul monsters who crawl out of the sewers at night and steal what the townspeople »
Wright's Feature Filmography: Shaun of the Dead, Hot Fuzz, Scott Pilgrim vs. the World, and The World's EndIn this series Team Experience sounds off (individually) on their favorite fringe awards contenders. Here's Michael Cusumano on Edgar Wright
Four features into his career it is clear that Edgar Wright is building a body of work that will end up ranking with the greats of film comedy. It is time the Academy recognizes this fact (and their aversion to comedy) and honors The World’s End, his best film to date, with a nomination for Best Director.
Stop and consider everything Wright's latest film accomplishes, all while staying as light and zippy as classic screwball by the likes of Hawks or Sturges. The World’s End is simultaneously a genre spoof, a farce, a biting social satire, a character study, and a moving comedy about middle-aged friendship. And above all else it’s funny. »

Sourcing from our commenters and the @dsatthemovies Twitter feed, we quizzed the director on the movies that made him want to move into filmmaking, which Cornetto instalment he would make a sequel to, and how he keeps his hair looking so great.
We also managed to secure a sensational exclusive (okay, a slight exaggeration!) on Wright's eagerly-awaited Marvel blockbuster Ant-Man.
Having migrated from the small to the big screen following the sleeper success of cult TV show Spaced, Edgar Wright, Simon Pegg and Nick Frost have amassed an enormous army of fervent fans thanks to their high concept - and very British - 'Cornetto trilogy', consisting of rom-zom-com Shaun of the Dead (2004), buddy cop comedy Hot Fuzz (2007) and now the boozy apocalyptic sci-fi The World's End (2013). With the closing chapter released on DVD and Blu-ray this week and Marvel's eagerly anticipated silver screen adaptation of the Ant-Man comics next on the agenda, CineVue was given the opportunity to catch up with the film's director, Wright, for a brief chat about the Cornetto trilogy.

Laika and stop-motion in general always impresses me. With stop-motion animation, when you peel back the surface and see how it was all assembled, it’s often even more impressive than it was in the first place. I’m sure computer animations have people working extremely hard, but when seeing the film’s assembled, I don’t just want to see people behind computer screens. Laika have harnessed this power in their latest trailer, where the majority shows the creation of the film rather than clips from the actual feature.
The Boxtrolls sees an unwanted human child raised by a group of mysterious trolls who have an affinity for boxes. The original teaser trailer whipped up a controversial storm after suggesting that 2 men could raise a family. Imagine that. Madness. The animation looks more classical than Laika’s previous films Coraline and Paranorman, and I have no doubt it will »

Edgar Wright is working on a "smart and scary" horror movie.
Protosevich told Ain't It Cool News that he can reveal "zilch" about the project; however, he called the British director a "delightful" collaborator.
"The one thing I'll say is that Edgar's movies have a certain tone, and this one might be a little unexpected because the main thing we're going for is scary. Smart and scary," Protosevich said.
Those looking forward to the return of Laika Studios next year are in for a real treat, because not only has a new trailer debuted for The Boxtrolls, it’s introduced by none other than the filmmakers themselves.
The trailer, released by Focus via Apple, starts off by showing some behind-the-scenes footage of the painstaking work that goes into creating something at Laika, the team behind Coraline and ParaNorman.
The new 3D animated feature from Laika Studios tells the tale of the Boxtrolls, monsters who live underneath the charming streets of Cheesebridge, who crawl out of the sewers at night to steal what the townspeople hold most dear: their children and their cheeses. At least, that’s the legend the townspeople have always believed. In truth, the Boxtrolls are a community of lovable oddballs who are raising as one of their own an abandoned and orphaned human boy named Eggs. »

Edgar Wright (Shaun Of The Dead, Hot Fuzz, Scott Pilgrim Vs. The World) has been promoting the DVD and Blu-ray home entertainment release of his final film in the ‘three flavours cornetto trilogy’ The World’S End starring Simon Pegg and Nick Frost. Throughout his promotional interviews we have been getting tiny bits of information here and there on his next production which is of course Marvel Studios’ Ant-man which is set to shoot next year for a 31st July 2015 release.
Ant-man has received a fair amount of attention recently with Paul Rudd reportedly the front runner for the title role, which in my opinion would be a very fine choice. Now Edgar Wright has revealed that the film is no longer set to shoot this side of the pond as it had originally been planned to do. Many Marvel Studios productions over the past few years have taken advantage »
