Interview: Director Edgar Wright On 'The World's End,' Sci-Fi And The Power of Ant-Man

November 21st, 2013 10:10am EST
The World's End
When it comes to young filmmakers with a track record for creating consistently savory work, nobody is more prolific then filmmaker Edgar Wright. Whether it be teaming up with Simon Pegg and Nick Frost for flicks like "Shaun of the Dead" and "Hot Fuzz" or launching off on his own for the cult classic "Scott Pilgrim vs. The World" and the upcoming superhero movie "Ant-Man," Wright has proven himself a director with unwavering style and panache. His latest effort titled "The World’s End" (hitting DVD/Blu-ray this week from Universal Home Entertainment) is the final flavor in the famed Cornett...

Simon Pegg, Nick Frost And Edgar Wright Talk 'The World's End'

Simon Pegg, Nick Frost, Martin Freeman, Eddie Marsan, and Paddy
For British filmmakers Edgar Wright, Simon Pegg and Nick Frost, the Cornetto is more than just a tasty ice cream treat that comes in three flavours. Because their comedies don’t share connected characters, the Cornetto is one of several delicious thematic elements that ties the movies together. Wright, Pegg and Frost’s two previous films “Shaun of the Dead” and “Hot Fuzz” or flavours if you will, are also united by running jokes, loving homage to specific genres and stories about the power of friendship. The third variety in their series, also known as the Cornetto trilogy, is no different;...

May 8th, 2013 6:56pm EDT
The World's End
Barmageddon is coming as Simon Pegg and Nick Frost have reteamed with director Edgar Wright and producer Nira Park for the third film in the "Three Flavours Cornetto Trilogy" (aka the "Blood and Ice Cream Trilogy), The World's End.

The first trailer for the film was released on Wednesday, promising the second hilarious-looking drinking buddy movie this summer.

The film takes place 20 years after five friends go on an "epic" pub crawl in their hometown that fell short of reaching the ultimate bar called "The World's End," and one of them, Gary King (Pegg), decides to get the guys together ...

Great Actor/Director Combos For The Release Of 'Dark Shadows'

May 11th, 2012 1:03pm EDT
Dark Shadows
Every artist has their muse, whether it be human, imaginary, or in some cases, drug induced. And while certainly some people might joke that the latter is Tim Burton's muse of choice, given the stye and subject of many of his films, it's become quite clear over the years that he draws inspiration from the people he surrounds himself with. Most notable among them are Helena Bonham Carter and Johnny Depp.

Given that his newest film, "Dark Shadows", marks Burton and Depp's 8th film collaboration, we at Starpulse decided to take a look at some of the other actor/director partnerships that hav...

Review: 'Attack The Block' Is A Delightful Assault On The Senses.

July 28th, 2011 8:23pm EDT
Attack the Block
What I liked about “Attack the Block” was that it was happy to have fun within it's genre without making fun of the genre itself. “Shaun of the Dead” (which was from the same producers) for example, was a parody of Zombie movies, kidding them right up to the Zombie-bludgeoning-set-to-Queen-dance-number. “Attack the Block” is a funny movie about a very serious alien invasion. It’s a slight difference, but it changes everything.

We open in the ghetto of London as a woman walks home from work late at night, and is promptly mugged by a bunch of teenage thugs, lead by Moses (John Boyega). Right...

Review: Seth Rogen Steals Scenes With Caustic Sarcasm In 'Paul'

March 18th, 2011 12:38pm EDT
Paul
If E.T. spent enough time on Earth adapting to our language and customs, he probably would have become a wisecracking rebel just like Paul, the title character in director Greg Mottola’s latest buddy comedy. This alien with attitude, voiced by the gravelly Seth Rogen, steals scenes with his caustic sarcasm, penchant for practical jokes, and his gross personal habits. Paul is neither naive nor innocent, but his maturity or lack thereof is what makes him so hilarious.

While Rogen is humorous in the film, it helps that Brits Simon Pegg and Nick Frost pen the screenplay for “Paul.” The two...

Trailer Talk: This Week In Movies - 'Limitless,' 'Paul,' & More

March 14th, 2011 10:00am EDT
Limitless
Last week I was able to interview director Cary Fukunaga and actress Mia Wasikowska about their most recent project “Jane Eyre.” I got to talk with them about their motives for remaking a classic story like Jane Eyre, about working with Judi Dench, and about life on the road promoting movies. If you have not already read it, check out my interview with them, and my review of the film.

I’ve already seen “Paul,” starring Simon Pegg and Nick Frost, which debuts this week, and I have plans to see two other films coming out: “The Lincoln Lawyer” and “Limitless.” I will also be interviewing ...

Nick Frost Squeezed Into The 'Pirate Radio' Boat

November 11th, 2009 9:20am EST
Pirate Radio
Richard "Love Actually" Curtis tells a historical story in Pirate Radio. In the early '60s, rock n' roll music was banned in the U.K., so DJs just sailed boats off the coast to broadcast. The film has fun with the lives of DJs on the boat. Actor Nick Frost joked about the tight spaces, particularly in proportion to his own size.

"They got tighter when I got in them, put it that way," Frost said. "They're small. The sets were so intricate and perfect that that was a tiny bathroom and it was really small. It was tight."

Part of that is movie magic. Just to shove a camera into those cabi...

Starpulse's Explosive Summer Movie Preview

May 1st, 2009 10:06am EDT
Star Trek
Since the dawn of the American cinematic blockbuster in the late 1970s and early 1980s, moviegoers have eagerly waited for May - the unofficial beginning of summertime. This summer is no different. Films, and most popular media, are social mirrors, and this summer season supports that. The large box office contenders all deal with very similar themes: escapism and the support of the lone, outlaw hero figure (X-Men Origins: Wolverine, Star Trek, Terminator Salvation, Up, Transformers 2, Public Enemies, Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince, G.I. Joe: Rise of Cobra, Inglourious Basterds, et...

Philip Seymour Hoffman Stars In 'The Boat That Rocked'; In Theaters Aug. 28

April 24th, 2009 6:30pm EDT
The Boat That Rocked
In the late 1960s, American radio stations blasted rock and roll 24 hours a day. But in the home country of the Beatles and The Rolling Stones, the only way 25 million people could hear their music was to tune in…to a boat.

Celebrated filmmaker Richard Curtis (Four Weddings and a Funeral, Notting Hill, Bridget Jones's Diary, Love Actually) brings the incredible story of a band of rogue deejays who captivated British radio listeners in the '60s, playing the music that defined a generation and boldly defying the government that tried to shut them down - The Boat That Rocked.
