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...

Twenty years after attempting an epic pub crawl, five childhood friends reunite when one of them becomes hellbent on trying the drinking marathon again in "The World's End."

They are convinced to stage an encore by mate Gary King, a 40-year-old man trapped at the cigarette end of his teens, who drags his reluctant pals to their hometown and once again attempts to reach the fabled pub - The World's End.

As they attempt to reconcile the past and present, they realize the real struggle is for the future, not just theirs but humankind's. Reaching The World's End is the least of their worries....

Box Office Predictions: Riddick Is A Clear Winner

September 6th, 2013 9:40pm EDT
Riddick
1) Riddick- 18M Weekend, 18M Total

Riddick should clearly win the weekend. Vin Diesel is hot off of his Fast sequel this summer, and the Riddick sequel seems to return the franchise to the Pitch Black roots, instead of the nonsense that happened in Chronicles. The Resident Evil franchise has done well in September, and Riddick should mirror that to an extent. Of course, you have the people who hated Chronicles Of Riddick, and may be waiting for their friends to say that this film is worth watching before heading out.

2) The Butler- 10M Weekend, 93M Total

Heading for the 100M mark, The Bu...

'Butler', One Direction Top Box Office, But Spanish-Language 'Instructions Not Included' Is The Real Winner

September 3rd, 2013 9:49am EDT
Instructions Not Included
Lee Daniels' The Butler held off competition from boy band One Direction's concert movie, One Direction: This Is Us, to top the four day Labor Day weekend box office.

"The Butler" grossed $20 million, edging out director Morgan Spurlock's music documentary, which came in second at $18 million.

"This Is Us" did win the weekend box office, though, pulling in $1 million more than "The Butler" for a $15.8 million take.

Comedy We're the Millers finished third on both charts, taking in nearly $16 million for the holiday weekend, and $12.6 million over the three-day weekend.

But the big surpri...

'The Butler' Tops Box Office For Second Straight Weekend

August 26th, 2013 12:41pm EDT
Lee Daniels The Butler
"Lee Daniels' The Butler" once again topped the weekend box office with takings of $17 million.

The film is inspired by a true story and centers on a White House butler (Forest Whitaker) who served seven American presidents over three decades.

It focuses heavily on the dramatic changes that swept America over 30 years, from the civil rights movement to Vietnam and beyond, and how those changes affected the butler's life and family.

The film easily beat the number-two movie of the weekend, comedy "We're The Millers," which earned $13.5 million.

Both films beat last week's new release, "T...

Lee Daniels' The Butler has served up a second week at the top of the U.S. box office.

The biopic claimed $17 million (£11.3 million) in its second weekend on release, edging out Jennifer Aniston's comedy We're the Millers.

Both films beat last week's (begs19Auig13) new releases - Mortal Instruments: City of Bones, The World's End and horror film You're Next round out the new top five.

Box Office Predictions: What A Slow Weekend Ahead…

August 23rd, 2013 11:05am EDT
The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones
1) The Butler- 16M Weekend, 45M Weekend

City Of Bones is tracking soft, and The Butler was a crowd pleaser last weekend. It is likely that a small drop will keep The Butler in 1st place again this weekend.

2) The Mortal Instruments: City Of Bones- 15M weekend, 20M Total

Soft tracking. I think The Butler and Mortal Instruments will be close, but if this was really a big franchise starter like it has been billed, it should be winning by a landslide.

3) You’re Next- 14M Weekend, 14M Total

A well reviewed horror film yes, but a no-name cast. It could break through this weekend, considering...

'The World's End' Asks How Far Would You Go For A Pint Of Beer?

August 22nd, 2013 1:15pm EDT
The World's End
We're all familiar with the quote, 'You can never go home again.'  Well, that's not exactly true, you can go home again but it may not be the way you remembered it.

That is certainly the case in 'The World's End' directed by Edgar Wright. Wright wrote the script with Simon Pegg, who also stars in the film.

The writers consider 'The World's End' to be the last in a trilogy; a follow up to 'Shaun of the Dead' and the cop buddy flick 'Hot Fuzz.'

The film starts out with a flashback. The year is 1990 and five high school friends, living in the English village of Newton Haven, attempt a 12 pu...

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

August 22nd, 2013 9:00am EDT
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;...

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 ...
