With Shaun of the Dead, writers Edgar Wright and Simon Pegg played within the zombie genre. In Hot Fuzz they tackled action films. Later this year, they will conclude their trilogy of genre-blending comedies with The World’s End. It’s a film that has been a topic of discussion for years. Now, finally, we have our first glimpse of how Wright, Pegg, and co-star Nick Frost plan on tying everything together.
The World’s End is a sci-fi comedy that sees five friends (Pegg, Frost, Paddy Considine, Martin Freeman and Eddie Marsan) return to their old hometown to drink their way through twelve bars. When they arrive, though, things are a bit more like Invasion of the Body Snatchers than Animal House, and fate of the universe is at stake.
Directed and co-written by Wright, The World’s End opens July 19 in the United Kingdom and August 23 in the United States. Check out the international teaser trailer below. Read More »

Several new posters have just been revealed, two for highly-anticipated superhero movies from which we’ve seen plenty already, and two from a film that’s still almost a total mystery. The superhero films are The Wolverine and Man of Steel, and their posters reveal the Silver Samurai and a flowing cape respectively.
Edgar Wright‘s The World’s End gets the third and forth new posters, which provide our first look at the film’s antagonists. These antagonists will be more fully revealed and explained in the first teaser trailer, out on Wednesday, but we’ll do some educated guessing below. Read More »
There is no news about Star Wars Episode VII in this post. I’m sorry, but it’s true. However if you’re a Star Wars fan like me, ready to eat up any and all content related to J.J. Abrams and his highly anticipated movie, you’ll enjoy this.
Below is a short video featuring Abrams discussing the franchise, and his fandom, with fellow Star Wars nerd Simon Pegg. Pegg, of course, has worked with Abrams on several films including this month’s Star Trek Into Darkness. He’s also a massive Star Wars fan who was truly hurt when the prequels came out.

J.J. Abrams has done a pretty great job keeping Star Trek Into Darkness details under wraps, even during this last-ditch deluge of marketing materials, but little bits and pieces have been trickling out here and there. Today we have our first look at an unmasked Abrams-style Klingon from the movie, along with three TV spots, another clip, and a bunch of images. Hit the jump to see it all. Read More »
That headline is true. This story features the first footage anywhere from Edgar Wright‘s The World’s End, one of our most anticipated films of 2013. However, it’s brief. Very brief. Three seconds brief. It’s used as part of a montage for something called the “Summer of Cinema,” a UK event. It’s actually a really cool trailer featuring footage from a ton of big, and small, summer movies, made even more exciting by the two shots from The World’s End. Check it out below. Read More »

With the opening of J.J. Abrams‘ Star Trek Into Darkness just around the corner, we can hardly turn around these days without stumbling across a new trailer or clip or TV spot. Today we have two new videos. The first is the Japanese trailer, which contains a bit of new footage, and the second is a promo centered on Spock (Zachary Quinto) and voiced by John Harrison (Benedict Cumberbatch).
In inanimate marketing, meanwhile, we have a new still of the other, non-Enterprise ship that’s been spotted in promos, plus character posters for Spock, John Harrison, Kirk (Chris Pine), Uhura (Zoe Saldana), Carol Marcus (Alice Eve), Sulu (John Cho), Bones (Karl Urban), Scotty (Simon Pegg), and Chekov (Anton Yelchin). See it all after the jump.

In just over a month, J.J. Abrams‘ second Star Trek film, Star Trek Into Darkness, opens its regular run. (The film will actually premiere in April, with galas set for different countries beginning with an Australian event on April 23.)
As we hit the last stretch until the film opens up to a general audience, we’ve got a new international poster promising the end of the Earth, along with high-res versions of photos that have appeared in magazines and online over the past week. The pics show much of the cast — which includes Chris Pine, Zachary Quinto, Zoe Saldana, Karl Urban, John Cho, Bruce Greenwood, Simon Pegg, Anton Yelchin, Benedict Cumberbatch, Alice Eve and Peter Weller — while the poster continues the image of Cumberbatch’s villain as a dominating force.
