The week is finally here. Simon Pegg, Nick Frost and Edgar Wright‘s conclusion to the Cornetto Trilogy, The World’s End, finally opens everywhere on Friday August 23. To commemorate the occasion fans can buy that Mondo Shaun of the Dead poster, see full Trilogy on the big screen, or attend a Wright-centric art show.
But that’s not all. Hot off the release of the interactive screenplay to Shaun of the Dead, Focus and Moviefone have teamed up to do the same for the 2007 film Hot Fuzz. Read More »

In just over one week, Edgar Wright‘s fourth feature film, The World’s End, hits theaters in the US. That’s as good an excuse as any to look back at Wright’s previous films and celebrate our shared love of them. Those films, of course, are Shaun of the Dead, Hot Fuzz and Scott Pilgrim vs. The World. There’s also the amazing TV show Spaced that acted as a precursor to those films.
Wright’s work has been immortalized in various media (such as Mondo posters, original paintings, and gig posters) and Gallery 1988 West in Los Angeles is doing all that and then some. On Tuesday August 20, they’re hosting The Official Edgar Wright Art Show and we’re happy to share a pretty healthy sampling of works that’ll be on display including a few exclusive debuts.

There’s no better way to see Edgar Wright‘s latest film, The World’s End, than with an appetizer of Shaun of the Dead and Hot Fuzz. The three films, collectively referred to as The Cornetto Trilogy, are linked by their sharp sense of humor, genre leanings, lead actors, and a British ice cream treat. The final act, The World’s End, opens on August 23 and many fans probably figured they’d just watch the first two on Blu-ray before heading to the theater. Now you won’t have to do that.
Regal Cinemas has just revealed a huge list of theaters nationwide that’ll be screening all three films on the big screen on August 22, culminating in the 10 p.m. screening of The World’s End. Plus, if you don’t have a Regal near you, Wright assures fans in the United States this is only the beginning.

This post really doesn’t need much set up. Mondo has commissioned awesome artist Kevin Tong to do a poster for a triple bill of Edgar Wright films happening this weekend in Austin. Meaning, one Mondo poster includes Shaun of the Dead, Hot Fuzz and Scott Pilgrim vs. the World. Is it better than Alex Pardee or DKNG’s poster on the same subject? It’s debatable. But they’re all sick. Check it out after the jump. Read More »
Sometimes there are posters so cool, people get mad when we post them. Posting them alerts more people to their awesomeness and, hypothetically, gives everyone less of a chance to buy one themselves. To those people, I apologize in advance.
Alex Pardee, whose work you might be familiar with from Sucker Punch or a new Attack the Block piece, has designed a “literally mind-blowing” poster for an upcoming Edgar Wright triple feature at the Castro Theater in San Francisco: Shaun of the Dead, Hot Fuzz and Scott Pilgrim vs. The World. After the jump we’ll show you the full image and tell you where you can buy tickets to attend the event and pick up one of these beauties. Read More »
Their brilliant TV show Spaced was a U.K. hit, but most of the U.S. and the rest of the world was first introduced to Simon Pegg, Nick Frost and Edgar Wright when their salute to zombie films, Shaun of the Dead, hit the big screen. They followed that up with an homage to action films called Hot Fuzz and made a promise for another film in that vein. Since then they’re all constantly asked about the long rumored conclusion to the trilogy, lovingly referred to as either the “Blood and Ice Cream” or “Three Flavors Cornetto Trilogy.”
For a few years those questions slowed down because Wright was working on Scott Pilgrim vs. The World and Pegg and Frost were making Paul. Both those films are out now and, once again, the questions have begun. In a new interview, Pegg said that he’s hoping he and Wright can knock out a draft before he has to be on set for Star Trek 2.

What is Page 2? Page 2 is a compilation of stories and news tidbits, which for whatever reason, didn’t make the front page of /Film. After the jump we’ve included 33 different items, fun images, videos, casting tidbits, articles of interest and more. It’s like a mystery grab bag of movie web related goodness.

In the past, if you wanted to make some art based on your favorite filmmaker, you’d have to make the art, print it out, find the filmmaker’s representative’s address, go to the post office, and ship it. Then, you’d hope and pray to get some kind of acknowledgment. Today, though, things are so much easier. Just put some art online and the person it’s about is bound to find it themselves.
That’s the case with artist/musician Lloyd Stas. He created a beautiful set of posters based on the work of Edgar Wright and simply put them online. “I posted them up onto Flickr and woke up the next day to find that Edgar has posted them up on his twitter and his blog,” Stas said in an exclusive email interview. “I hadn’t told him about them and he was one of the first to find them. I was just hoping that he might see the posters, but the fact that he posted them on his blog and said such nice things about them was too awesome and very flattering.” Now, we can show them to you. Check then out after the jump and read what Stas had to say about the series, Wright’s work and more. Read More »
