Focus Features Celebrates 15th Anniversary With Halloween Showing Of Edgar Wright’s Shaun Of The Dead At The Greek Theatre

Focus Features’ 15th anniversary celebration pulled out all the stops on Thursday night at La’s Greek Theatre with a fantastic party and screening of the Edgar Wright-Simon Pegg horror-comedy classic Shaun Of The Dead.

Billed as a “rom zom com” (romantic zombie comedy), the film follows the bloody funny adventures of underachiever Shaun (Simon Pegg) and his best mate Ed (Nick Frost) as they cope with a zombie invasion of North London and attempt to rescue Shaun’s girlfriend Liz (Kate Ashfield) and his Mum, Barbara (Penelope Wilton).

Thousands of fans, including Baby Driver co-star Jon Hamm, enjoyed the red-themed activities including a photo op, scary makeup applications, a character costume contest and dozens of zombies roaming the venue to frighten and entertain partygoers “like a drunk who’s lost a bet.”

After leading the audience in a zombiefied version of the Thx sound effect, Wright and Shaun co-star Lucy Davis,

Olivia Colman Set For Queen Elizabeth In Netflix’s ‘The Crown’ Seasons 3 & 4

British actress Olivia Colman is set to take over the role of Queen Elizabeth II in The Crown seasons 3 and 4 for Netflix. She will replace Claire Foy, who will bow out at the end of the second season, which debuts on December 8th. More on the Olivia Colman The Crown news below.

Olivia Colman The Crown – Actress To Play Queen Elizabeth II In Upcoming Seasons

The next two seasons haven’t been officially ordered, but Variety says that early pre-production is already underway.

The series tells the inside story of Queen Elizabeth II’s reign, as the fragile social order established after the Second World War breaks apart. It is based upon Peter Morgan’s play ‘The Audience’, and Morgan is the series creator.

Beginning with soldiers in Her Majesty’s Armed Forces fighting an illegal war in Egypt, and ending with the downfall of her third Prime Minister, Harold Macmillan,

Olivia Colman Will Take Over as Queen Elizabeth on The Crown

Another coronation is coming to The Crown as Claire Foy is handing over the reins to a new Queen. Olivia Colman will play the role of Queen Elizabeth in the third and fourth season of The Crown. There’s no official order yet for the upcoming seasons but it is expected to continue. Colman is known her roles in television shows like Broadchurch, Fleabag, and The Night Manager (where she won a Golden Globe and earned an Emmy nomination). She has also appeared in movies like Hot Fuzz, Hyde Park on Hudson (in which she played Queen Elizabeth, the Queen Mother),

Olivia Colman will replace Claire Foy for The Crown seasons 3 and 4

It looks like Netflix’s The Crown will get quite a shake-up in its future seasons. Come Season 3, Claire Foy will no longer portray Queen Elizabeth II, but will be replaced in the role by Broadchurch’s Olivia Colman.

The change is to better portray the key characters as they age, something series creator Peter Morgan had always planned. Each season does cover nearly a decade in the life of the Queen, with Season 1 covering 1947 – 1955 and Season 2 covering 1957 – 1963. Based on this, Matt Smith will also be replaced eventually in the role of Prince Phillip.

Colman has also starred in The Lobster, Hot Fuzz and AMC’s miniseries The Night Manager, based on the John le Carre novel. She won a Golden Globe for Best Supporting Actress for her role and was also nominated for an Emmy. She will be seen next in Kenneth Branagh’s Murder on the Orient Express.

Pegg & Wright say they were only joking about Shaun of the Dead sequel

  • JoBlo
Shaun Of The Dead remains a horror-comedy classic even after all these years, launching Edgar Wright, Simon Pegg and Nick Frost into the spotlight. The movie is the first in the beloved the Cornetto Trilogy (followed by Hot Fuzz and The World’S End), but despite rumors Pegg and Wright were thinking of doing a direct sequel, they’ve recently come out an said the two were just kidding around.

Simon Pegg Reveals His Pitch For A Shaun Of The Dead Sequel

There’s no getting away from it – 2004’s Shaun Of The Dead is a classic of modern cinema. Part homage, part rom-com, and part social commentary, the movie served the dual purposes of delivering a shot in the arm to the zombie genre, while also kickstarting the film trilogy created by three of the talents behind the British television show, Spaced.

That trilogy – lovingly referred to by fans as The Three Flavours Cornetto Trilogy – would go on to involve a police-procedural tale (2007’s Hot Fuzz) and an alien invasion (2013’s The World’s End), but it was Shaun Of The Dead that got the ball rolling. So, when Entertainment Weekly recently revisited the movie, it asked the co-writers – Simon Pegg and Edgar Wright – about the prospect of a sequel.

For his part, Pegg explained that there was actually an idea for a follow-up, which did make it onto paper.

Simon Pegg Wanted to Do Shaun of the Dead 2 with Vampires
There are few movies like Shaun of the Dead. Not only in terms of its ability to endure in pop culture 13 years after its release, but few movies have ever managed to blend comedy and horror in such a brilliant way. Some have wondered why we never got a sequel, with Simon Pegg, Nick Frost and director Edgar Wright opting to make Hot Fuzz instead. As it turns out, Pegg actually, albeit jokingly, pitched a Shaun of the Dead sequel that would have involved vampires instead of zombies. Here's what he had to say about it.

"I jokingly wrote a treatment for From Dusk Till Shaun, which was a sequel. Edgar thought it would be funny to do the film again, with vampires. It was all just pub talk."

While it doesn't sound like Edgar Wright actually considered making the movie, From Dusk Till Shaun sounds like a fantastic idea.

5 Reasons why you need to see Baby Driver

  • Cineplex
5 Reasons why you need to see Baby Driver5 Reasons why you need to see Baby DriverAdriana Floridia10/10/2017 10:46:00 AMDirector Edgar Wright is kind of a big deal. Although he may not be a household name yet, with his latest film, Baby Driver, surely even non-film aficionados will soon know who he is. Most famous for his "Cornetto" trilogy, comprising of Shaun of the Dead, Hot Fuzz and The World's End, and all made with collaborators Simon Pegg and Nick Frost, these three films are something of cult classics. He also directed the Toronto-set Scott Pilgrim vs. The World, which many consider a masterpiece of stylistic filmmaking. Baby Driver follows in its footsteps as an equally stylistic crime film about Baby (Ansel Elgort), a young getaway driver who's paying a debt to a mob boss (Kevin Spacey). It's a story we've seen before, but it has never quite unfolded like it does in Baby Driver,

Edgar Wright interview: Baby Driver, Bad Boys 3 & more

Matt Edwards Nov 13, 2017

Edgar Wright chats to us about making Baby Driver, A Fistful Of Fingers, Bad Boys 3 and what he's up to next...

There’s a scene in Baby Driver, Edgar Wright’s hit crime film from this summer that’s just being released on home video now, where the eponymous Baby is warned by a more experienced criminal that everyone in their game eventually ends up with blood on their hands and that it doesn’t wash off so easily. Baby plays it cool. Later Baby is given some driving gloves that are white leather on one side and red leather on the other. And, later in the movie, when he thinks he’s clear of the game he takes the gloves off, removing the red from his palms, soon to discover that blood really doesn’t wash off quite so easily.

Why Are Audiences Gravitating Towards Genre Subversions?

  • Flickeringmyth
George Chrysostomou on audiences gravitating towards genre subversions…

This month marks the release of Kingsman: The Golden Circle, the sequel to the surprise hit Kingsman: The Secret Service and it is of course just as genre bending as its predecessor. The franchise clearly plays off of some of the silliness of the Bond movies, with their own versions of Q and M, high-tech if not slightly unbelievable gadgets, egotistical villains spouting monologues about grand world domination plans and of course, the classic suited look of the MI6 Spy, complete with beautiful car and in this case, umbrella! Of course, the original pokes fun at the James Bond movies, at one point asking for a martini that is “Gin, not vodka, obviously. Stirred for 10 seconds while glancing at an unopened bottle of vermouth.” Audiences were captivated by this fun take on the classic genre and with the sequel projected to do well at the box office,
