‘Doctor Who’ Christmas Special Adds Guest Star Nick Frost

20 September 2014 9:57 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Whovians just got an early Christmas present from the BBC.

Nick Frost, best known for his roles in “Shaun of the Dead,” “Hot Fuzz” and “The World’s End,” will guest star in this year’s “Doctor Who” Christmas special.

“I’m so thrilled to have been asked to guest in the ‘Doctor Who’ Christmas special, I’m such a fan of the show,” Frost said in a statement. “The read-through was very difficult for me; I wanted to keep stuffing my fingers into my ears and scream ‘No spoilers!’ Every day on set I’ve had to silence my internal fan boy squeals!”

Production has already begun on the episode, which also guest stars Natalie Gumede, Faye Marsay, Nathan McMullen and Michael Troughton. Michael Troughton’s father, Patrick Troughton, played the second incarnation of the Doctor.

Meanwhile, “Doctor Who” exec producer Steven Moffat said the casting choice simply “made sense. »

Matt Damon and Paul Greengrass are 'Bourne' again. Are they Hollywood's top actor/director pair?

17 September 2014 3:00 PM, PDT | EW - Inside Movies | See recent EW.com - Inside Movies news »

In a development that feels more inevitable than surprising, Matt Damon and Paul Greengrass are in talks to get back into the Bourne business. The two had sent mixed messages over the years, ever since Jason Bourne disappeared in the murky East River at the end of The Bourne Ultimatum in 2007, with the major roadblock being Damon’s insistence that a reluctant Greenglass direct, while Universal handed the franchise over to writer-turned-director Tony Gilroy. But with Gilroy’s Bourne Legacy, starring Jeremy Renner, failing to live up to the original three Bourne films at the box office, and Damon’s recent non-Bourne projects, »

Fantastic Fest – A Look at the Film, Parties, and Chaos that Await in Austin

15 September 2014 9:26 AM, PDT | WeAreMovieGeeks.com | See recent WeAreMovieGeeks.com news »

The best way to describe how I approach Fantastic Fest is like summer camp. It happens once a year. You get back together with old friends. Yet in this case, this non-traditional camp is for fans of the most bizarre, violent, horrific, and Fantastic movies you could imagine. And even still, Fantastic Fest is so much more. This will be more third time attending Fantastic Fest and We Are Movie Geeks fourth time covering the crazy events that take place in Austin every September. For eight days I will be immersed in a world that is unlike any other film festival I have ever attended. What other festival is going to feature events like an opening night food fight, a karaoke party, a “nerd rap throwdown,” and the signature event at the festival – Fantastic Debates (which includes a verbal debate followed by a literal boxing match). These are just a »

‘Wild’s End’ #1 – A Splendid Mix of ‘Animal Farm’, ‘War of the Worlds’, and ‘The World’s End’

14 September 2014 10:53 PM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Wild’s End #1

Written by Dan Abnett

Art by I.N.J Culbard

Publisher: Boom! Studios

Boom! Studios describes Wilds End as something fans of Edgar Wright’s Cornetto Trilogy (Shaun of the Dead, Hot Fuzz, The World’s End) will love. Seeing as this is only the first issue, it is too early to tell, but apart from some cursory similarities, the two don’t have much in common yet. But there is something uniquely interesting about Wild’s End; Its debut issue this week follows a rural English community of the 1930s populated by anamorphic villagers, whose quiet village is upset when menacing mechanical aliens descend. Inspired by the sci-fi aesthetic of War of the Worlds and the anthropomorphic characters of Blacksad and Mouse Guard, Wilds End is a restrained but magnificent treat. This odd blend of styles and genres is brought to you by Dan Abnett and I. »

Exclusive 1:1 Interview: Hector and the Search for Happiness Star Simon Pegg

14 September 2014 5:03 PM, PDT | JoBlo.com | See recent JoBlo news »

The very first time I saw the utterly brilliant Shaun Of The Dead, I knew that Simon Pegg was going to be a major force. As a comedic actor, he is able to capture so much depth while still making us laugh at his follies. This wonderfully charismatic talent has shined in Shaun, Paul, Hot Fuzz, The World’S End and a number of big franchise flicks including Mission Impossible: Ghost Protocol as well as Star Trek. He continually impresses in his film work. And with his latest, Hector »

Paddy Considine: I was always portrayed as angry, but I was just ill

7 September 2014 1:00 AM, PDT | The Guardian - TV News | See recent The Guardian - TV News news »

The actor on why he believes he cant act, loving art, feeling lucky, and the medical condition he has just discovered

About five years ago, Paddy Considine started to ask himself a question: why wasnt he a very good actor? This enquiry led to a series of related concerns: why was he decent in some films, such as Dead Mans Shoes, but so appalling in others? Why was he able to vividly portray an angry confrontation, but incapable, for example, of convincingly picking up a phone and calling a taxi?

These insecurities will be surprising to nearly everyone who has seen the 40-year-old Considines work. Dead Mans Shoes, the eviscerating 2004 revenge drama that he co-wrote, may still be his calling card, but he long ago proved his versatility with comic performances in Edgar Wright and Simon Peggs Hot Fuzz and The Worlds End, and, respectively, understated and then wildly overstated »

See Reddit users’ favorite movie from each year

2 September 2014 12:56 PM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Throughout the summer, an admin on the r/movies subreddit has been leading Reddit users in a poll of the best movies from every year for the last 100 years called 100 Years of Yearly Cinema. The poll concluded three days ago, and the list of every movie from 1914 to 2013 has been published today.

Users were asked to nominate films from a given year and up-vote their favorite nominees. The full list includes the outright winner along with the first two runners-up from each year. The list is mostly a predictable assortment of IMDb favorites and certified classics, but a few surprise gems have also risen to the top of the crust, including the early experimental documentary Man With a Movie Camera in 1929, Abel Gance’s J’Accuse! in 1919, the Fred Astaire film Top Hat over Alfred Hitchcock’s The 39 Steps in 1935, and Stanley Kubrick’s The Killing over John Ford’s »

Three Flavors Cornetto Trilogy Figurines Are Off the Effin' Chain

1 September 2014 10:20 AM, PDT | GeekTyrant | See recent GeekTyrant news »

Some of the most inventive, entertaining, genre-bending comedies of the last decade were the Three Flavors Cornetto Trilogy — Shaun of the Dead, Hot Fuzz, and The World’s End. Kibooki at Evil Corp has paid tribute to the collaborations between Simon Pegg, Nick Frost, and director Edgar Wright by designing this series of figurines. Sadly, they aren’t in production. These are just illustrations of what the figurines would look like. I would really love to have these on my shelf. The fact that I can't makes me want to shoot my gun in the air and yell "Aaaaagh!"*

Supercut of Edgar Wright's Dramatic Close-Ups

29 August 2014 11:00 AM, PDT | GeekTyrant | See recent GeekTyrant news »

As we’ve said before, Edgar Wright is one of the most visually inventive directors working today. That’s just a fact. He makes dynamic use of his camera to aid storytelling and joke-telling. One of his signature moves is using extreme close ups to tell visual jokes, often with crash zooms and ominous music. Filmmaker Jaume R. Lloret has gone over Wright’s films with a fine tooth comb, pulling examples from Scott Pilgrim vs. The World, Shaun of the Dead, Hot Fuzz, and The World’s End to create this entertaining supercut of extremely mundane objects extremely close-up. Check it.

20 August 2014 7:50 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

(Cbr) The team behind "Shaun of the Dead," "Hot Fuzz" and "The World’s End" are putting the wheels in motion for an all-new trilogy. Simon Pegg confirmed in an interview with BBC 6 Music that he and frequent collaborator Edgar Wright are discussing possibilities for a new series of films, now that their much-loved Cornetto Trilogy has come to an end. “Edgar and I were having a conversation the other day about it and it has a title and everything,” he said. “We’re kind of into a creative cycle now. We’ve all got different things on, and we know we have to get those things done, but the coming together thing is without question on the table and will happen when we can do it.” Pegg clarified that "The World’s End" was the final chapter in the Cornetto Trilogy, but he and Wright always intended to reunite for further films. »

Edgar Wright and Simon Pegg to reunite, maybe do another trilogy

20 August 2014 8:21 AM, PDT | EW - Inside Movies | See recent EW.com - Inside Movies news »

As disappointing as it may have been to see director Edgar Wright leave Ant-Man after eight years of development, there’s a silver lining: Wright’s now free to do things like partner up with frequent collaborator Simon Pegg again.

According to The Guardian, Pegg appeared on BBC Radio’s Screen 6 podcast and told host Edith Bowman that the two are working on more movies together.

“It will happen,” Pegg said. “We made three films in 10 years and hopefully in the next decade we’ll make another three.”

Pegg says that the next project has a title and will be »

Simon Pegg and Edgar Wright Eyeing New Film Trilogy

20 August 2014 2:03 AM, PDT | The Hollywood Reporter | See recent The Hollywood Reporter news »

Simon Pegg and Edgar Wright’s so-called Cornetto Trilogy may have drawn to a close with The World’s End last year following 2004's Shaun of the Dead and Hot Fuzz in 2007, but the Star Trek and Mission Impossible star has revealed that another is on the way. "It will happen. We made three films in 10 years and hopefully in the next decade we’ll make another three," Pegg said in an interview with BBC radio station BBC 6 Music, adding that he and Wright were now working on a new film that already had "a title and everything".

Forget Cornetto! Edgar Wright And Simon Pegg Are Doing This Together

19 August 2014 12:20 PM, PDT | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

It was nearly a year ago to the day that Edgar Wright, Simon Pegg, and Nick Frost drew a curtain on their Cornetto Trilogy with The World's End. But the end of this thematic threesome that included the apocalyptic comedy, Hot Fuzz and Shaun of the Dead, doesn.t mean an end to the collaboration of the men behind it. So says Simon Pegg! As a guest on BBC 6 Music, Simon Pegg revealed that he Edgar Wright are already brewing a new movie up that will move beyond the three films they have already collaborated on. The actor shared a string of details about the new project, but sadly nothing too specific. He began, "Edgar and I were having a conversation the other day about it, and it has a title and everything. We're kind of into a creative cycle now." Speaking of the Cornetto trilogy, Pegg went on: "When »

Simon Pegg and Edgar Wright Are Reteaming for a New Movie

19 August 2014 11:44 AM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Ever since both writer-director Edgar Wright and writer-star Simon Pegg burst onto the scene 10 years ago with Shaun of the Dead, their careers have skyrocketed. They returned to complete their "Three Flavours Cornetto Trilogy" with Hot Fuzz and last year's The World's End, but many have wondered if they have another project in the works.

During an interview with BBC Radio 6 Music, Simon Pegg revealed that he is starting a new project with Edgar Wright, although it isn't clear when that may see the light of day.

"Edgar and I were having a conversation the other day about it and it has a title and everything. We're kind of into a creative cycle now.

Edgar Wright and Simon Pegg Looking to Reteam for New Movie

19 August 2014 9:45 AM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

The Cornetto trilogy -- Shaun of the Dead, Hot Fuzz and The World's End -- may be over, but that doesn't mean Edgar Wright and Simon Pegg (and let's hope Nick Frost) are done working together as Pegg tells BBC Music (via Digital Spy), "When we said the trilogy was over, it was because that group of films was over... The next thing we do won't do that, it will just be something else. It will happen. We made three films in ten years and hopefully in the next decade we'll make another three." As for what's next, Pegg added, "Edgar and I were having a conversation the other day about it, and it has a title and everything. We're kind of into a creative cycle now... It will happen when we can do it." Hmmmmm, "when we can do it". That's probably because Wright has a film called Baby Driver »
