Our favourite Edgar Wright scenes before Baby Driver

Our favourite Edgar Wright scenes before Baby DriverOur favourite Edgar Wright scenes before Baby DriverAdriana Floridia5/15/2017 10:35:00 Am

Edgar Wright only has four major features under his belt, but he's already regarded as a legendary filmmaker.

Three of these films make up the "Three Flavours Cornetto" trilogy, a series of films which are all directed by Wright, written by Wright and actor Simon Pegg, and starring Pegg and Nick Frost. Shaun of the Dead, Hot Fuzz, and The World's End make up this thematic trilogy--which have a running joke of all being in reference to a different flavour of Cornetto ice cream. Despite this quirky running theme, the three films are vastly different. Shaun of the Dead is a zombie film, Hot Fuzz is a buddy cop movie, and The World's End is an apocalyptic pub crawl. All three are hilarious and highly regarded comedy films.

Wright has expanded from this team once already, »

Baywatch, Cars 3, Baby Driver and more make our weekly movie news!Baywatch, Cars 3, Baby Driver and more make our weekly movie news!Zachary Dent5/12/2017 3:16:00 Pm

In this week's movie news we have a couple trailers, a vignette, a clip, and a sweet new poster!

A new Red Band trailer for Baywatch dropped this week and we're cracking up! They don't hold back in this one so viewer discretion is advised. 

A muscular Zac Efron and an even more muscular Dwayne Johnson team up on the big screen to play everyone’s favourite lifeguard beach babes. The Baywatch headquarters has lost its funding and it’s up to Mitch (Johnson) to get the company back on its feet. The company hires gold medalist – and very shallow - Matt Brody (Efron) as their PR representative, and his party antics rub Mitch the wrong way. Check out the trailer »

In today's daily movie news we have a new vignette, a couple of fresh clips, and some posters that just dropped!

Baby Driver dropped a new poster and a vignette today. This one is from Edgar Wright, the writer/director of Scott Pilgrim vs. The World, Hot Fuzz and Shaun of the Dead. Enough said, right? It's about a young getaway driver named Baby (played by Ansel Elgort), who after being coerced into working for a crime boss, finds himself taking part in a heist doomed to fail. This feels like Drive but for teens! It also has a great cast including Kevin Spacey, Jon Hamm, Jamie Foxx, Lily James and Jon Bernthal. The vignette features the director and some of »

Exclusive Clip: Meet 'Baby Driver''s Baby

9 May 2017 9:00 AM, PDT | Fandango | See recent Fandango news »

Edgar Wright is known for horror and genre movies like the Shaun of the Dead trilogy and Scott Pilgrim vs. the World, but his more straightforward action-heist pic Baby Driver got rave reviews when it premiered at SXSW earlier this year. In it, Ansel Elgort (The Fault in Our Stars) plays Baby, a young yet top-notch getaway driver who wants to leave his shady profession behind when he meets the girl of his dreams (Lily James). But as we know from most typical heist action movies,...

Posterized: Brie Larson

28 April 2017 9:17 AM, PDT | FilmExperience | See recent FilmExperience news »

By Nathaniel R

Last week the directors of Captain Marvel were announced, moving that imaginary Marvel Studios picture, starring Brie Larson, closer to reality. 2019 is still a long way off though we have plenty of Brie to tide us over until then. She's in movie theaters currently as part of Ben Wheatley's crime comedy ensemble picture Free Fire  (reviewed). It's one of two features this spring whichhas featured Brie Larson as the token female amongst a group of adult men fighting for their lives (the other being Kong Skull Island). Which is, if you consider her particular skills as an actress, kind of a waste; to date she's consistently done her most transcendent work opposite other women or child actors.

Though it feels as if Brie Larson only recently exploded into fame having won the Best Actress Oscar for Room (2015), in reality she has been paying her dues for ages, »

Anatahan (Josef von Sternberg)

Josef von Sternberg called Anatahan his best film. Borne from more than a decade’s worth of frustration with the studio system, it was, as the last picture he completed, his stamp on his time as a director. Even then, when released in 1953, it was only released in a butchered format, and, as it often goes in such cases, was subsequently abandoned by popular consciousness.

Donnie Darko (Richard Kelly)

Last year marked the 15-year anniversary of Richard Kelly’s debut cult curio, Donnie Darko. While the film’s cult-status has elevated it into its own separate canon alongside other 21st-century indie-cult hits, Kelly’s two other films — the positively delirious and daring Southland Tales and the labyrinthine sci-fi period piece The Box — prove that he is a director deserving of much greater consideration.

Edgar Wright Eyes ‘Grasshopper Jungle’ as Next Feature

14 April 2017 4:57 PM, PDT | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

With Baby Driver arriving this summer — which looks to be a propulsive and highly entertaining ride — writer-director Edgar Wright is already moving forward with this next project. His attachment was first announced years ago, but according to The Hollywood Reporter, Wright has re-secured the rights (see what I did there?) to an adaptation of Grasshopper Jungle, a young adult novel that charts the coming-of-age and youthful love narrative amidst an apocalypse of unstoppable 6-foot grasshoppers hellbent on destroying humanity.

Now set up at New Regency instead of Sony Pictures, Wright is no stranger to beloved adaptations (Scott Pilgrim vs. the world), nor riotous action with a beating heart (Three Colours Trilogy, the aforementioned comic book adaptation, and seemingly, Baby Driver). What remains to be seen is if the material can be elevated above its target audience to hit cinema-goers as a whole, but let’s be honest, it’s Edgar Wright. »

Toronto: The Cinematic City

13 April 2017 5:51 AM, PDT | FilmSchoolRejects.com | See recent FilmSchoolRejects news »

The most populous city in Canada has appeared on-screen in many different ways over the years.Enemy (2013)

There are many ways in which cities are portrayed in cinema. Sometimes cities are anonymous and nameless, and sometimes cities become characters in the films they are portrayed in. Cities can be merely incidental settings, or the specific locations within a city can be incredibly important both narratively and visually. The people within a city tend to represent the place itself: how they act, how they dress, where they work, how they speak, and what they eat. All of these things can be related to the place they live. Cities are home to an infinite multitude of experiences — people from different places, with different families, different wants and desires and identities.

There are cities that are frequently remembered as being iconic within the world of cinema. Paris, Rome, New York, Venice, Chicago, and London have all received loving portraits in »

New Regency in Talks to Board Edgar Wright’s Apocalyptic Movie ‘Grasshopper Jungle’

12 April 2017 3:57 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

New Regency is in talks to come on board Edgar Wright’s apocalyptic movie “Grasshopper Jungle.”

Wright annouced in 2014 that he would direct the film. At that point, the project was set up at Sony with Matt Tolmach and Nira Park producing, who remain as producers but the studio is no longer attached to the project. Netflix was also bidding for the movie rights.

Based on Andrew Smith’s young adult novel, the film will tell the story of a high school boy and his two friends who inadvertently cause a genetically-engineered plague that unleashes giant praying mantises that they must battle. Released in February of 2014, “Grasshopper Jungle,” was set in the fictional town of Ealing, Iowa, in which insects take over the world.

Scott Rosenberg wrote the script.

Wright’s directing credits include “Shaun of the Dead,” “Hot Fuzz,” “Scott Pilgrim vs. the World,” and the upcoming “Baby Driver, »

‘Colossal’ is the ‘Scott Pilgrim vs. the World’ of Monster Movies

6 April 2017 7:52 AM, PDT | FilmSchoolRejects.com | See recent FilmSchoolRejects news »

Fans of the rom com-subverting Wright film will fall in lesbians with Colossal.

Colossal, Nacho Vigalondo’s excellent genre-bending monster movie, seems to focus on the central relationship between bar-dwelling characters played by Anne Hathaway and Jason Sudeikis before being subverted by the film’s utter cleverness into something much darker. In this way, it’s similar to one of my favorite Edgar Wright films and, I predict, will attract and hold the same kind of dedicated cult following.

Wright, in his relatively brief directorial career, has become the master of comedic-genre films that recognize and embrace their traditional tropes while subverting expectations of cliched romance. In fact, Wright’s said in an interview that each of the films in his Cornetto Trilogy is a Trojan horse: “genre films that have a relationship comedy smuggled inside a zombie movie, a cop movie, and a sci-fi movie.” Hot Fuzz loves its action-oriented police thrillers in all their convoluted »

Jim Jarmusch proved he was back in a major way with Only Lovers Left Alive a few years ago, and the streak continues with Paterson, a calm, introspective drama with such positive views on marriage and creativity that I was left floored.

Oscar-winner Brie Larson is paying homage to the job that allowed her to audition for movie roles.

The Kong: Skull Island star posted an Instagram album of her days spinning tracks, writing, “I used to DJ. It was the ‘real’ job that floated me while I auditioned for the movies I never got.”

“Even during the filming of Short Term 12 I spun records at magazine parties and hotel bars on weekends because I couldn’t survive off of SAG minimum,” she continues. “Drunk dudes would request trap and I’d tell them ‘Sorry I only play vinyl.'”
