Shaun of the Dead sequel

Edgar Wright and Simon Pegg are both very big names in show business right now, with Pegg having worked on the Star Trek franchise and Wright recently releasing the box office hit Baby Driver. But in the early 2000s, they were primarily known for their work on the cult TV show Spaced. That all changed when 2004’s Shaun of the Dead hit theaters, leading Wright and Pegg to make two more films together. And while Wright and Pegg would collaborate on both Hot Fuzz and The World’s End, fans almost got more – a Shaun of the Dead sequel.

Ready Player One Trailer

Next year, Steven Spielberg is going to bring audiences into an epic nerdland with Ready Player One. His adaptation of Ernest Cline‘s wildly popular novel will have plenty of references, but hopefully, it’ll have a lot more going for it than a trip down nostalgia lane. Considering Ready Player One is a Steven Spielberg film, we have little reason to believe it won’t be.

Below, watch the Ready Player One trailer.

mission impossible 6

Tom Cruise teased the return of old and the introduction of new faces in Mission: Impossible 6, the next entry in the saga of Ethan Hunt and his death-defying stunts.

The spy action film commemorated wrapping production in New Zealand with a cast photo of the team gazing pensively off in the distance, the New Zealand wind whipping through their hair. It’s a visually pleasing photoshoot — helped by the fact that they’re all gorgeous actors — that gives us a peek at what to expect for the still untitled Mission: Impossible 6.

Shaun of the Dead Print

With the release of Baby Driver just over a couple weeks away, Mondo wanted to pay tribute to Edgar Wright‘s breakthrough feature film Shaun of the Dead.

The horror comedy is a near-perfect film that is expertly shot, meticulously written, and absolutely hilarious. The film marks Edgar Wright’s first feature collaboration with Simon Pegg, who takes the spotlight in Mondo’s outstanding new print by artist Rich Kelly which has a sparing but stylish use of red.

hot fuzz sequel

The closest Edgar Wright has come to making a sequel is his Three Flavours Cornetto Trilogy, the unofficial series of genre films loosely tied together by Simon Pegg and Nick Frost (and ice cream). But would he consider making a sequel to one of his most popular films?

Maybe, Wright answers. And only one of his films really lends itself to a sequel: the second in the Cornetto Trilogy, the buddy cop comedy Hot Fuzz.

Absolutely Anything

When legendary comedian and actor Robin Williams died in 2014, he left behind a wonderful legacy of entertainment for fans to remember him by. In addition to classic films like Dead Poets’ Society, Mrs. Doubtfire, Aladdin, Hook (don’t @ me), and Good Will Hunting, the fast-talking funnyman also had a handful of movies that were still unreleased at the time of his death.

Most of those films have since made it to theaters except for one: a 2015 Simon Pegg comedy called Absolutely Anything in which Williams provides the voice of a dog, which was never available in the United States. Thanks to Atlas Distribution Co., Absolutely Anything is finally coming to U.S. theaters later this month.

Star Trek 4 Development

News of Star Trek 4 officially being in development first surfaced last summer. Producer J.J. Abrams confirmed work on the sequel and revealed it would somehow bring back Chris Hemsworth as George Kirk, the father of James T. Kirk who perished in exciting opening sequence of the first installment of the reboot that established a whole new timeline in the Star Trek universe. Since then all we’ve heard is vague hype about the sequel, and it sounds like the cast is unsure whether it will actually happen.

In a recent interview, Star Trek franchise star Zachary Quinto says that he’s still waiting for the script to be completed, and despite being hopeful that he’ll be able to reprise his role as Mr. Spock, the movie doesn’t seem to have been greenlit yet.
