It all started with a tweet. That tweet above, to be specific. Monday afternoon director Edgar Wright tweeted that “Aside from The World’s End, I directed one shot in another summer movie. But which?” with the hashtag “I probably will not tell.” Twelve minutes later, he tweeted “Yeah. Some of you got it right.”
Many more people have replied to Wright after that 12 minutes but, looking just at the first few tweets there’s one film that’s mentioned way more than anything else: Iron Man 3. Which would make sense. Wright is set to next make Ant-Man, a Marvel movie, and a cameo would be very cool. Alas, Wright “exclusively revealed” that his shot is NOT in Iron Man 3. Back to the guessing game.
So, what movie could it be? Let’s speculate below. Read More »

This past weekend, the /Filmcast held its 10-hour marathon podcast benefiting FilmAid. It was an action packed affair featuring long segments with many of the most popular filmmakers in Hollywood today. We had appearances from Rian Johnson (Looper), Jason Reitman (Up in the Air), David Wain (Wet Hot American Summer), Damon Lindelof (Lost), Bryan Singer (X-Men: Days of Future Past), Edgar Wright (Scott Pilgrim vs. the World), Jon M. Chu (G.I. Joe Retaliation) and more.
Over the course of the broadcast (which you can read more about here; check back soon for downloadable segments) many of those filmmakers provided juicy, newsy tidbits. You can read them after the jump, including Rian Johnson’s thoughts on the new season of Breaking Bad, Jason Reitman’s almost-foray into the X-Men universe and when we can expect to see the trailer for Edgar Wright’s The World End.

Edgar Wright has wrapped principal photography on The World’s End, which is his third film with Spaced co-creators Nick Frost and Simon Pegg. (Following Shaun of the Dead and Hot Fuzz.) The film is set for a UK opening in mid-August, and will roll out in other countries through late summer and early fall, but wasn’t going to hit the US until late October.
Good news comes in from Wright, however, who tweeted some new release info. The new US date for The World’s End is August 23. In a manner appropriate to the film, raise a pint to celebrate the new release date for the film that Pegg has said is “a much bigger proposition than the other two films.” Read More »

We’ve been very impatient to see Edgar Wright‘s Ant-Man, and can you blame us? By the time it’s released in late 2015, it’ll have been almost ten years since the filmmaker began working on it. That’s long enough to make even the most faithful fans worry.
But Wright says he had his reasons for taking his time, two of which were Scott Pilgrim vs. The World and The World’s End. Moreover, he points out, Ant-Man could ultimately benefit from the slow schedule, since he knows much more about special effects now than he did back in 2006. Read his latest comments about the long-awaited project after the jump.

The human race survived 2012, but we will survive The World’s End? The latest film from Edgar Wright, Simon Pegg and Nick Frost has an apocalyptic promise in the title and in a the latest set of images, there’s a whole lot of drinking going down. Pubs played a big role in both Shaun of the Dead and Hot Fuzz, the first two films from the trio. They’ll play an even bigger role here as Pegg and Frost are joined by Martin Freeman, Paddy Considine and Eddie Marsan. All play characters involved in a bar hopping adventure aimed towards the titular pub, and might end up having to saving the world.
Check out two brand new images and some quotes below.
UPDATE – A third image has now been revealed too. Read More »

Phase Two of Marvel’s Cinematic Unvierse gets underway this spring with Iron Man 3, but Marvel Studios didn’t get where it was by looking only at the short term. So Kevin Feige is already looking to Phase Three, which will kick off after The Avengers 2 is released in 2015. The only film confirmed so far for that next step has been Edgar Wright‘s Ant-Man, but Feige revealed in a recent interview that a Doctor Strange film would “definitely” also be part of it. Read his comments about both films after the jump.
