'Friday Night Dinner', 'Arrow', 'The Following': Tube Talk Q&A

28 November 2013 5:35 AM, PST | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - TV news news »

You asked, we (mostly) answered! It's time for another edition of Tube Talk's Q&A, and we think this one is the best yet (we're going to say that every week). Continue for more details on the return of Friday Night Dinner, The Bridge, The Mindy Project and more...

When is Friday Night Dinner back?

Good news - Tamsin Greig, Paul Ritter, Simon Bird, Tom Rosenthal and, of course, Mark Heap have all been back filming a third series of Channel 4's raucous family comedy for the past few months and the new episodes are expected to air in early 2014.

It's going to be a busy old year for Bird - what with a second Inbetweeners movie also confirmed for August 2014, so good to see that he's still making time to eat a lovely bit of squirrel, drink salt water and generally undergo a string of humiliations for our amusement. »

Midsomer Murders Christmas special features baby for Barnaby: First photo

11 November 2013 5:03 AM, PST | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - TV news news »

The Midsomer Murders Christmas special will feature a surprise twist, as Dci Barnaby (Neil Dudgeon) and his wife Sarah (Fiona Dolman) discover that they are expecting a baby.

The new arrival was written into the ITV detective series when Dolman discovered she was pregnant. Her baby, Madeleine Charlotte, was born in July.

"I didn't think I'd ever have a child so I feel very blessed," said the single mum. "I am very happy to bring up the baby on my own as I have incredible support and love from my family.

"Things might not be perfect but from the moment I held Madeleine in my arms we felt like a team. I've got so much love around me, so I know we're going to be all right.

"Everyone on Midsomer Murders has been so supportive and lovely. I went back in October to film the fifth episode and Neil was very excited for me. »

From Spaced To The World’s End: The Connecting Cast Of The Cornetto Trilogy – Part Two

21 July 2013 4:00 AM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

This weekend see’s the release of The World’S End, the final installment of Edgar Wright’s ‘Three Flavours Cornetto‘ trilogy. You’ll notice several themes, motifs and jokes are woven between all three films, but none are more evident than the cast. Wright and Pegg have a proclivity for casting their mates, going all the way back to Spaced. And with chums like these, who could blame them.

Part One can be read here. Have a Part Two. And a Bourbon.

Peter Serafinowicz

Spaced, Shaun of the Dead,

Well fuck-a-doodle-doo! You’ll probably recognise his face but you will certainly recognise his voice. He is probably most famous for providing the vocals for Darth Maul in Star Wars: The Phantom Menace, which he recycled to wonderful effect in Spaced and Black Books. His best work has been on Science spoof Look Around You, featuring a plethora of folks from the Cornetto-verse, »

Simon Pegg, Nick Frost, Edgar Wright talk 'The World's End' - video

15 July 2013 1:00 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

More than six years on from the release of Hot Fuzz, Edgar Wright and Simon Pegg's final Cornetto movie is finally reaching our screens.

Marginally darker than its predecessors, The World's End stars Pegg, Nick Frost, Martin Freeman, Eddie Marsan and Paddy Considine as five estranged schoolfriends who reunite to recreate a memorable pub crawl from their youth.

Digital Spy sat down with Wright, Pegg and Frost to discuss why they needed the longer gap before making The World's End, and to look back over the Cornetto Trilogy as a whole.

Pegg and Frost also spoke about the fact that their roles are reversed from the established formula, with Pegg playing perpetual man-child Gary King and Frost playing his responsible, teetotal former friend Andrew Knightley.

Rosamund Pike, Mark Heap and David Bradley are among the supporting cast of The World's End, which is released in the UK this Friday »

Brand New Featurettes For ‘Pacific Rim’, ‘R.I.P.D.’, ‘The World’s End’ & ‘Fruitvale Station’

9 July 2013 3:17 AM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

A bunch of fascinating featurettes have arrived to showcase four of the year’s exciting films.

When legions of monstrous creatures, known as Kaiju, started rising from the sea, a war began that would take millions of lives and consume humanity’s resources for years on end. To combat the giant Kaiju, a special type of weapon was devised: massive robots, called Jaegers, which are controlled simultaneously by two pilots whose minds are locked in a neural bridge. But even the Jaegers are proving nearly defenseless in the face of the relentless Kaiju. On the verge of defeat, the forces defending mankind have no choice but to turn to two unlikely heroes-a washed up former pilot (Charlie Hunnam) and an untested trainee (Rinko Kikuchi)-who are teamed to drive a legendary but seemingly obsolete Jaeger from the past. Together, they stand as mankind’s last hope against the mounting apocalypse. »

The World’s End: Cornetto Trilogy Featurette

24 June 2013 7:46 AM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Here is a fantastic featurette for The World’S End, the third film in Edgar Wright and Nira Park’s ‘Three Flavours Cornetto’ trilogy.

As you’re on our site, we imagine that you love Shaun Of The Dead and Hot Fuzz as much as we do and are equally psyched for the grand finale starring Simon Pegg and Nick Frost. To get you in the mood, here is a slice of fried gold in the form of a mini-documentary that shows us how all three films tie together. Themes, iconography, running gags, call-backs, there are more aspects that weave throughout the movies than one might expect.

Bring the noize.

Greatest TV Pilots: Spaced

Spaced “Beginnings”

Directed by Edgar Wright

Written by Simon Pegg & Jessica Stevenson

Aired 9/24/1999

Many pilot episodes focus too much on exposition and establishing who the series’ characters are. In those instances, pacing and humor frequently fall by the wayside. Spaced’s first episode is anything but a slow, disappointing introduction of characters and grating jokes. From the opening scene, intercutting Tim Bisley (Simon Pegg) and Daisy Steiner (Jessica Stevenson) leaving (or in Tim’s being thrown out of) their current flats, “Beginnings” is a surreal look at two people who meet by accident and form a friendship of necessity.

Tim and Daisy are London twenty-somethings who first meet in a café. Daisy first makes the mistake of thinking Tim is a drug dealer, but the two eventually bond while they search for available flats in the newspaper. After knowing each other for barely two weeks, they decide to pose as »

Six Smart Character Posters For ‘The World’s End’

10 June 2013 5:26 AM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Oh, you know we’re already excited for Edgar Wrights’s The World’S End and you lot should be as well. After an impressive first trailer, things got a lot more interesting with the second and now we’ve got these tongue-in-cheek character posters for each of the main men (and women) involved. I say that because they’ve also got a pub name above their roles, which amusingly ties in with their personality and looks – clever stuff you crafty Cornetto lovers.

The World’S End focuses on Gary King (Simon Pegg), as he gathers the gang of five to revisit something they never finished in their youth: An Epic Pub Crawl. It’s only been 20 years since they last tried it and although it may be initially against their better judgement, it then turns chaotic as they unwittingly become humankind’s only hope for survival.

Raise A Glass To New Posters For Pegg, Frost & Wright’s ‘The World’s End’

21 May 2013 7:37 AM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Edgar Wright’s Cornetto (or Blood & Ice Cream) trilogy comes to an epic conclusion with apocalyptic comedy The World’S End. The film once again reunites brilliant British funnymen Simon Pegg and Nick Frost as two of the five former best friends who decide to finally get together and attempt another epic pub crawl. One that they couldn’t quite complete 20 years earlier. However, in the midst of the drunken chaos, they unwittingly become humankind’s only hope for survival.

It’s certainly going to be difficult to top the hilarious undead adventures of Shaun Of The Dead and the cop craziness of Hot Fuzz but if anyone can do it, it’s the terrific top trio. Check this latest Us one-sheet first and then the great new Quad!

The Flickering Myth Reaction to The World's End trailer

9 May 2013 3:31 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

The Flickering Myth writing team look at the trailer for the final part of the Cornetto trilogy...

How's that for a slice of fried gold?

Edgar Wright and co dropped the first trailer for the last part of their Cornetto Trilogy that started with Shaun of the Dead and carried on with Hot Fuzz. The World's End could very well mark the last time we see Wright team up with Simon Pegg and Nick Frost who have been working together since their 1999 TV series Spaced.

"In The World’s End, 20 years after attempting an epic pub crawl, five childhood friends reunite when one of them becomes hellbent on trying the drinking marathon again. They are convinced to stage an encore by mate Gary King (Simon Pegg), a 40-year-old man trapped at the cigarette end of his teens, who drags his reluctant pals to their hometown and once again attempts to »

'Friday Night Dinner' to return for third series on Channel 4

9 May 2013 2:52 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - TV news news »

Friday Night Dinner is to return for a third series.

Channel 4 has ordered six new episodes of the comedy, which stars Tamsin Greig, Paul Ritter, Simon Bird and Tom Rosenthal as the Goodman family and Mark Heap as their strange neighbour Jim.

"I'm so excited to be making a new series of Friday Night Dinner with such a fantastic cast once again," said series creator Robert Popper.

"I really could not be happier. Well I could, if say, I'd taught crows how to speak and they, in turn, taught me how to fly."

Nerys Evans, Deputy Head of Comedy at Channel 4, added: "We're thrilled we're going to be spending more Friday Nights with the Goodmans, and not forgetting Jim and Wilson too. Roberts's created such a brilliantly warm and funny world, and the cast are just sublime, we can't wait to join them for more Friday Night Dinners next year. »

The World's End trailer: last orders for mankind?

8 May 2013 9:41 AM, PDT | The Guardian - TV News | See recent The Guardian - TV News news »

The trailer has landed for Simon Pegg and Edgar Wright's comedy about a group of mates attempting to finish a legendary pub crawl after 20 years – only to walk into an alien invasion

It's been a time of ups and downs for the writing team behind The World's End, director Edgar Wright and star Simon Pegg, since the duo's last film, Hot Fuzz, brought the buddy cop genre to a small town in rural Gloucestershire back in 2007. Wright won critical acclaim for the wonderfully dry, visually splendid Canadian comic book caper Scott Pilgrim vs the World but saw his rather expensive film become one of 2010's most high-profile box-office turkeys. Pegg has become Hollywood's go-to guy for comedic Brit sidekick roles in blockbuster sagas such as Star Trek and Mission: Impossible, yet struggled a little when placed centre-stage in middling fare such as last year's A Fantastic Fear of Everything and 2011's off-kilter Paul. »

The last bite of Edgar Wright’s The Cornetto Trilogy is just around the corner. and soon to be dribbling down our collective cinematic cheeks. The World’s End will soon be unleashed in cinemas worldwide and luckily the film’s first trailer has arrived for your viewing pleasure!

Determined to finish what they started, Gary King (Simon Pegg) rouses his friends and convinces them to return to their hometown to reach the much-fabled pub, The World’s End.

Big Train – box set review

25 April 2013 4:05 PM, PDT | The Guardian - TV News | See recent The Guardian - TV News news »

A sketch-show starring Simon Pegg and Julia Davis sounds like a fantasy these days – but in 1998 they were just part of this hugely talented ensemble

When it first aired on BBC2, way back in 1998, Big Train was hailed as an impressively surreal and often hilarious sketch show. But today – thanks to the success subsequently achieved by its team, including Simon Pegg and Julia Davis – the show looks like a fantasy comedy lineup. To modern viewers, Pegg is by far the biggest name. Yet on the evidence of this box set, you wouldn't single him out as the one destined to rise above his peers, such is the quality of the ensemble cast.

The show sees Davis (Hunderby, Nighty Night) shine as a grief-stricken mother giving a police press conference that, when the camera pans out, turns out to be taking place on a theme-park ride. Meanwhile, Mark Heap (Spaced, Green Wing) shows his versatility, »

Rewind TV: Mary and Martha; Lightfields; Food Glorious Food; Heading Out – review

2 March 2013 4:06 PM, PST | The Guardian - TV News | See recent The Guardian - TV News news »

It's hard to feel charitable towards Richard Curtis's malaria drama. There was more bite in Simon Cowell's dog's dinner

Mary and Martha (BBC1) | iPlayer

Lightfields (ITV1) | ITVPlayer

Food Glorious Food (ITV1) | ITVPlayer

Heading Out (BBC2) | iPlayer

Drama in aid of a worthy cause is not always more a pleasure than a duty, and Richard Curtis's feature-length Mary and Martha – an early curtain-raiser for Red Nose Day – was no exception. If its aim was to draw attention to the thousands of African children who die needlessly each year from malaria, all I can say is, it felt like it. I hope that doesn't sound too uncharitable. But I would have been as happy with a decent documentary as with this glossy weepie about two mums – one American, one English – having the bad luck to have a beloved son bitten to death by a mosquito in Mozambique and then »
