truth seekers

After Edgar Wright wrapped up his Three Flavours Cornetto Trilogy with 2013’s The World’s End, it seemed like the glory days of Simon Pegg and Nick Frost‘s long and storied onscreen relationship was over. The pair had worked together since the days of the 1999 British sitcom Spaced and would appear together in films like Paul as well. But the duo went their separate ways following The World’s End, until it was announced last year that Pegg and Frost would be reuniting for a new comedy-horror series, Truth Seekers. The series, which stars Frost as one of a three-person paranormal investigation team, has now landed at Amazon Prime Video.

rivers of london series

Simon Pegg and Nick Frost are reuniting, but not onscreen. The duo have eaten their last Cornetto ice cream (metaphorically, they probably enjoy them plenty in real life), and have moved on to developing projects behind the scenes. Their latest project is a TV adaptation of the epic fantasy novels Rivers of London by Ben Aaronovitch. Pegg and Frost will be developing a Rivers of London TV series through their new production company Stolen Picture.

Mondo Cornetto Trilogy Prints

When you think of the greatest film trilogies of all time, it’s easy to remember Back to the Future, Lord of the Rings, Indiana Jones, and Star Wars. But don’t you dare leave out The Cornetto Trilogy. It might be a makeshift trilogy comprised of Shaun of the Dead, Hot Fuzz and The World’s End, linked only by the fact that Simon Pegg and Nick Frost star in all of the films directed by Edgar Wright, but thematically, they are an incredible trio of stories that are hilarious, bloody, twisted, and just plain great. Now you can honor The Cornetto Trilogy with a new trio of Mondo prints by artist Johnny Dombrowski. Read More »

Fighting with My Family Review

Dwayne Johnson now has a huge blockbuster career, but before that, he was one of the most popular professional wrestlers in the world. Now he’s returning to his roots as himself in the new comedy Fighting with My Family, written and directed by Stephen Merchant, the creator of the UK version of The Office.

But this isn’t the story of The Rock. Rather, it’s the true story of Divas wrestler Paige and how she worked her ass off and rose to WWE fame thanks to the support and obsession of her unconventional wrestling family. And the result is not only the wrestling movie fans have always wanted, but one of the best underdog sports movies ever made about a female athlete. Read More »

Fighting with My Family Trailer

Did you ever dream of becoming a professional wrestler when you were a kid? Well, in the new comedy Fighting with My Family, British siblings Paige (Florence Pugh) and Zak (Jack Lowden) certainly did, and it’s not something that they’ve given up even as they’ve grown into adults. It just so happens that dreams sometime come true, even in 2018, because they get the call from the WWE to come try out for the big leagues. And they somehow get taken under the wing of Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson. But as the Fighting with my Family trailer shows, they’re not both going to become WWE Superstars. Read More »

Slaughterhouse Rulez trailer

Simon Pegg and Nick Frost have been collaborating for decades, from the British TV series Spaced to director Edgar Wright’s Cornetto Trilogy and the Greg Mottola alien comedy Paul. But now the beloved duo have formed Stolen Picture, and they’re both co-starring in the new production company’s debut film called Slaughterhouse Rulez. It’s a cheesy-looking horror comedy that sort of looks like what might happen if Harry Potter stepped into the world of Attack the Block. But lower your expectations, because that combination suggests a level of quality that is sadly lacking in this new trailer.
