Nyff Review: 10 Things You Should Know About 'Gone Girl'

29 September 2014 5:40 AM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

A couple of nights ago, the New York Film Festival kicked off at Lincoln Center, with a starry, splashy premiere - "Gone Girl," the long-awaited adaptation of Gillian Flynn's best-selling mystery (there were more than 3.5 million copies in print in the first year the book was published). Everyone was there, including stars Ben Affleck (who took some good-natured ribbing about his upcoming role as Batman during the post-film Q&A) and Rosamund Pike and director David Fincher. But the real star was, of course, the movie.

"Gone Girl," for those precious few who haven't read the book, concerns the disappearance of a beautiful wife (Pike) and the media scrutiny that zeroes in on her charming husband (Affleck). Did he murder her? Was she kidnapped? Or is there something altogether stranger going on? These are the questions that swirl around "Gone Girl," and as directed by Fincher ("Seven," "Zodiac," "The Social Network »

29 September 2014 4:29 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Mad Men's Jon Hamm and more have been announced as appearing in this year's Black Mirror Christmas Special...

Trailed earlier this year by Channel 4 as a "dystopian future festive tale that interweaves three stories", the Black Mirror Christmas special has a few casting gifts waiting under the tree for us, in the form of Mad Men's Jon HammGame Of Thrones' Oona Chaplin, and Prometheus and The World's End's Rafe Spall

Jon Hamm's character is to be the guiding thread through all three stories in the ninety-minute special, "binding them together into a suitably unsettling whole", according to the official press bumf. Hamm describes himself as a massive fan of the anthology series, which tells bleak, satirical tales "with a techno-paranoia bent".

Co-creator Charlie Brooker describes the show as a "horrible pageant" and himself as "revoltingly happy" about Hamm, Chaplin and Spall's casting in this year's festive episode, »

19 September 2014 8:24 PM, PDT | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

"Shaun of the Dead" and "The World's End" star Nick Frost will appear in this year's "Doctor Who" Christmas special.

In a statement, Frost says: "I'm so thrilled to have been asked to guest in the Doctor Who Christmas special, I'm such a fan of the show. 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."

Showrunner Steven Moffat adds: "Frost at Christmas - it just makes sense! I worked with Nick on the Tintin movie many years ago and it's a real pleasure to lure him back to television for a ride on the Tardis."

The BBC has not yet confirmed whom Frost will play in the hour-long episode. Other guest cast includes Natalie GumedeFaye MarsayNathan McMullen and Michael Troughton, »

Nick Frost Joins Doctor Who Christmas Special

19 September 2014 9:22 AM, PDT | GeekTyrant | See recent GeekTyrant news »

Nick Frost is one of three guest stars that will be appearing in the upcoming Doctor Who Christmas special. Frost is best known for his work with Simon Pegg and Edgar Wright on films such as Shaun of the Dead, Hot Fuzz, and The World's End. The guy is a very funny and talented individual, and it's going to be so cool to see him enter the world of Doctor Who. The other two actors joining the special are Nathan McMullen (Misfits) and Michael Troughton, who played the second Doctor in the 1960s.

The news was revealed on Doctor Who's official Twitter feed with the following photo that came with the caption: "#DoctorWho Christmas Special guest stars #HoHoHo."

I can't wait to see what they have in store for the Christmas special this year!

Rosamund Pike Talks Hector And The Search For Happiness, Working with Simon Pegg, the Film’s UK Response, David Fincher, and More

17 September 2014 10:00 AM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

Opening this weekend in North America is director Peter Chelsom’s dramedy Hector and the Search for Happiness.  Based on the book of the same name by François Lelord, the film stars Simon Pegg as Hector, an eccentric psychiatrist who’s going nowhere and whose patients aren’t getting any happier.  One day, he musters up the courage to set out on a quest to find out if happiness really exists.  The film also stars Rosamund Pike, Christopher Plummer, Toni Collette, Stellan Skarsgard, and Jean Reno.  For more on Hector and the Search for Happiness, click here to watch the trailer, and here's all our previous coverage. Last week at the Toronto International Film festival I landed an exclusive interview with Rosamund Pike, who plays Hector's wife.  She talked about being at Tiff, working with Pegg on The World's End and then Hector, collaborating with Peter Chelsom, if there were script changes during production, »

Tiff Exclusive: Simon Pegg Arrives In Tibet In Clip From 'Hector And The Search For Happiness'

3 September 2014 7:00 AM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

Simon Pegg has faced zombies ("Shaun Of The Dead"), an alien invasion ("The World's End"), super villains (two "Mission: Impossible" movies, with a third on the way), been blasted into outer space (two "Star Trek" films) among other adversity. But in "Hector And The Search For Happiness" he faces his most intriguing obstacle yet: inner peace. Heading to the Toronto International Film Festival where it will make its North American premiere, 'Hector' shows a different side to Pegg to those more familiar with his genre work, and this exclusive clip displays the more thoughtful yet still playful tone of his latest effort. Peter Chelsom ("Shall We Dance," "Serendipity") directs, and Toni Collette, Rosamund Pike, Stellan Skarsgård, Jean Reno, Veronica Ferres, Barry Atsma and Christopher Plummer co-star in a movie following a psychiatrist who having lost the ability to offer insight to his own patients embarks »

'If I Stay' Leads Dull Friday Box Office, Will 'A Dame to Kill For' Be Weinstein's Biggest Bomb Yet?

23 August 2014 10:36 AM, PDT | Thompson on Hollywood | See recent Thompson on Hollywood news »

The total for the Top Ten yesterday was actually up about 15-percent from the same day last year, but only because this year's three new openers had considerably more heft. (Edgar Wright's cult comedy "The World's End," in around 1,500 theaters, was the best of three fresh entries in 2013, with two weaker films lagging behind.) Pre-weekend estimates suggested that the newbies -- young adult tear-jerker adaptation "If I Stay" (Warner Bros.) Robert Rodriguez's collaborative action sequel "Sin City: A Dame to Kill For" (The Weinstein Company) and high school football drama "When the Game Stands Tall" (Sony) would, combined, gross over $50 million for the weekend. Instead, they barely grossed $12 million total yesterday (including under $2 million for Thursday evening shows). It looks like they'll be lucky to reach the mid thirties. "If I Stay" stood out ahead of the other two, coming in first for the day at $6.8 million. But the. »

Simon Pegg And Nick Frost Planning New Film With Edgar Wright, Will Reprise 'Shaun Of The Dead' Roles On 'Phineas & Ferb'

20 August 2014 6:05 AM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

By the title alone, last year's "The World's End" indicated a finale, with the trio of Edgar Wright, Simon Pegg and Nick Frost putting their Three Flavours Cornetto trilogy to rest. But that hardly means the longtime friends are done working together: It appears that a new project is already developing. Recently, Pegg stopped by BBC 6 Music (via Digital Spy) and mentioned that the three will reunite in a movie, although not immediately. "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," he said. "We've all got different things [going] on and we know we have to get those things done. The coming-together thing is without question on the table and will happen when we can do it." Pegg hopes the trio can work at the same pace as before. "When we said the trilogy was over, »

Edgar Wright And Simon Pegg To Team Up Again

19 August 2014 5:02 PM, PDT | www.themoviebit.com | See recent TheMovieBit news »

For a while you couldn't say either Edgar Wright, Simon Pegg, or Nick Frost's name, without mentioning the other two, the Cornetto trilogy making the trio synonymous with each other. Once the trilogy ended with The World's End, it was accepted they would go their separate ways, but fans still held out hope that it wasn't the last time they would team together. Well, it seems that hope wasn't unfounded, with Pegg telling BBC Radio 6 Music that plan are in motion for another collaboration with Wright. "Edgar and I were having a conversation the other day about it, and it has a title and everything. We've all got different things on, and we know we have to get those things done. The coming-together thing is without question on the table, and will happen when we can do it." Pegg has Star Trek and Mission: Impossible 5 on his plate, »

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.

Simon Pegg Confirms New Movie with Edgar Wright

19 August 2014 10:30 AM, PDT | GeekTyrant | See recent GeekTyrant news »

Even though Simon Pegg, Nick Frost, and Edgar Wright are finished with their Three Flavours Cornetto trilogy of Shaun of the Dead (2004), Hot Fuzz (2007) and The World's End (2013), Pegg says that they will definitely re-team for another project.

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 »

Cornetto No More, But Pegg And Wright Brewing Up A New Script

19 August 2014 8:30 AM, PDT | Twitch | See recent Twitch news »

How do you bounce back after walking away from your shot at a superhero franchise you'd spent years and years developing? If you're Edgar Wright you get busy. Very, very busy. Wright's got a handful of projects bubbling at the moment but here's the one that is immediately going to jump to the top of everyone's list:Though the Cornetto Trilogy of Shaun Of The Dead, Hot Fuzz and The World's End has come to its conclusion, Simon Pegg spilled in an interview on BBC6 that he and Wright have begun collaborating on a new script. He won't say what it's about. He won't say what it's called - though he does confirm they have a title. In Pegg's words: "Edgar and I were having a...

Simon Pegg and Edgar Wright Working Together on New Movie

19 August 2014 8:05 AM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

It would be shocking if Simon Pegg and Edgar Wright never worked together on a movie following The World's End, and thankfully, the two will continue their creative partnership.  On a recent interview with BBC Music 6, Pegg announced that he and Wright were pursuing a new project.  "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..." said Pegg.  "We've all got different things [going] on and we know we have to get those things done. The coming-together thing is without question on the table and will happen when we can do it." Hit the jump for more. In the interview with BBC, Pegg added: When we said the trilogy was over, it was because that group of films was over. They're all kind of related with each other and deal with a specific idea. »

Pegg And Wright Working On A New Film

19 August 2014 2:37 AM, PDT | EmpireOnline | See recent EmpireOnline news »

How's this for a slice of fried gold? Despite the beloved Cornetto Trilogy having drawn to a close with The World's End, Simon Pegg has revealed that he and Edgar Wright are collaborating once more: "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."Pegg revealed the mysterious project in an interview on BBC 6 Music, but was careful not to reveal too many details, probably because he knows how much we'll all pester him for news once the title is out there. Acknowledging that they are both busy men (with or without Ant-Man), he is nonetheless confident that it's going to happen. "The coming-together thing is without question on the table and will happen when we can do it."More intriguing still is the suggestion that this might be the first installment of a new (loose) trilogy. »

Production Officially Begins On Ant-man

18 August 2014 6:59 AM, PDT | ComicBookMovie.com | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

After more than 10 years of planning, Marvel's Ant-Man has finally commenced shooting. Director Peyton Reed has just sent out the following Tweet: Alright, gang. Today is the day. Let's. Get. small. #AntMan — Peyton Reed (@MrPeytonReed) August 18, 2014 Back in 2003, Edgar Wright and Joe Cornish started working on a script draft of Ant-Man for Artisan Entertainment, who held the rights to the character at that time. But in 2006 those rights reverted back to Marvel Studios, who kept the duo on board. Wright also signed on to direct the project, and in 2008 the script was finally finished; except that Wright then decided to take a hiatus to direct Scott Pilgrim Vs The World and The World's End. But after that it seemed we were finally on track -- Wright had begun to reveal a bit more about his take on Ant-Man, a cast was in place, and then...the director bailed, »

Simon Pegg interview: Hector, British film, blockbusters

13 August 2014 6:54 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Simon Pegg tries to find the secret to happiness in his latest film. He chats to us about its making, British cinema and more...

Simon Pegg is back in cinemas this week, in Peter Chelsom's Hector And The Search For Happiness. Ahead of that, the man himself sat down with us for a chat, that led to us - genuinely - being locked in a hotel room together for a minute or two.

It was not helped by us holding a packet of Love Hearts at the time. It's probably best you don't ask.

Anyway, we kept our professional composure, and this is what happened...

Given what a globetrotting movie this one is, how are your passport stamps looking?

It's ridiculously stamped now!

Did you film any of it in Liam Neeson's fake plane from Non-Stop? That would have made it easier.

We were working out how long »
