Does a double feature of Dawn of the Dead with Zack Snyder and Shaun of the Dead with Edgar Wright sound like a good night at out the movies? You bet it does, and we can exclusively announce that’s just the first night of the upcoming, third annual Hero Complex Film Festival presented by the Los Angeles Times. The festival will take place May 18-21 at Regal Cinemas L.A. LIVE and the full announcement of the line up and ticket sales takes place at 10 a.m. April 25. Read more after the jump. Read More »
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.

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 »
Cool Posts From Around the Web:
The New Beverly Cinema in Los Angeles is one of those movie theaters that film fans must visit at some point in their life. Maybe it’s not the prettiest theater in the world, but the tickets are cheap, the popcorn is cheap, and it regularly has some of the best, if not the best, repertory screenings imaginable, mostly in double features. Now, for their 2011 season, they’ve decided to kick it off the Wright way. The Edgar Wright way.
The New Bev will play host to over two weeks of films programmed by director Edgar Wright. They did it three years ago and now, the director of Shaun of the Dead, Hot Fuzz and Scott Pilgrim vs. The World (which will screen as one marathon) is back for The Wright Stuff II. Wright has chosen twenty films to play over 18 days beginning January 14 and most of the films are specially themed double features. Want to know what’s playing when, with what and whom? Then hit the jump. Read More »
We’re huge fans of Edgar Wright here on /Film. He’s been on the SlashfilmCast, we’ve covered and fawned over his movies and posted innumerable random, cool things about the man and his films. There’s almost too much to say about Spaced, Shaun of the Dead, Hot Fuzz and Scott Pilgrim vs. the World so thankfully, Joel Walden can do the talking for us. Walden is editor who has made a beautiful video highlight reel blending Wright’s three most famous films. Check out the clip after the break. Read More »
