————————————————————

“Scott Pilgrim is a breathless rush of a movie that jumps off the screen, spins your head around and then stealthily works its way into your heart. Don’t worry too much about hugging and learning and stuff. Just revel in those clutter-free last moments when two people finally get enough of a grip on who they are to make an honest, human connection. It’s a game-changer.”
- Peter Travers, Rolling Stone

Hurray, another one of those movie trailers with ponies in it. Haven’t made one of these in a long time, but that doesn’t mean I slacked off. If anything, this is the pony trailer I’ve spent the most time on making it look perfect.

Amazing art by Carlos Lerma with Pilgrim as Machete, Machete as Potter, Potter as Pilgrim!

Cera, Radcliffe and Trejo. The most unlikely badass trio you ever did see. Love it.

Based on the graphic novel by Brian Lee O’Malley
Containing: Michael Cera, Mary Elizabeth Winstead, Kieran Culkin, Johnny Simmons, Jason Schwartzman, Aubrey Plaza, Alison Pill

People all around the country are madly obsessed with this brilliantly intelligent, coming-of age extravaganza! On par with films such as RUSHMORE and ELECTiON, it’s chock full of progressive poignancy, 8-bit nostalgia, really-relatable side characters (with Kieran Culkin giving one of the greatest performances ever!) and a unique, unstoppable creativity that proves that Mr. Edgar Wright is a modern force to be reckoned with. Not only is this the movie you would have snuck into ten times to see when you were a teenager, it reminds you that you can still do that sort of thing… RiGHT NOW! 35mm print courtesy of Universal. 112min.

9:45pm – HOT FUZZ (2007)
Written by Simon Pegg & Edgar Wright
Containing: Simon Pegg, Nick Frost, Martin Freeman

Capturing the "buddy cop" genre has been attempted before and after this brilliant little ditty (see Kevin Smith’s COP OUT and Adam McKay’s THE OTHER GUYS), but what makes HOT FUZZ such a contemporary classic is that it actually achieves it’s own place alongside the films it’s in love with: POiNT BREAK and BAD BOYS 2. This genuine British Bro-mance between real-life BFFs, Simon Pegg & Nick Frost will completely sneak up on you, as they strive for purpose through their small town shenanigans. Widescreen 35mm print courtesy of Focus. 121min.

11:59pm – SHAUN OF THE DEAD (2004)
Written by Simon Pegg & Nick Frost
Containing: Simon Pegg, Nick Frost, Kate Ashfield & Lucy Davis

Riding high off their decade defining TV series SPACED (1999), this gang of Brits translated their genius to the big screen and gave the world one of the all time great Zombie parodies while at the same time (like HOT FUZZ) carving out it’s own top-spot within the genre it loves! What would a couple of modern day stoners do if the world were overrun with flesh eating corpses? Edgar Wright and company deliver a bloody great romp that only gets better and better with multiple viewings! This must be seen at the greatest movie theatre in the United States with the director IN PERSON introducing it to a whole new generation preceded by a RARE 35mm print of Wright’s Grindhouse trailer DON’T! Widescreen 35mm print courtesy of Focus. 99min.

Oh yes!

Not 24 hours after The Vines brought us ‘Gimme Love’, here’s Nottingham’s own musical tribute to all things Sex Bob-Omby.

It’s worth pointing out that one of the members of Swound is Lloyd Stas, the amazing poster designer behind these. Lloyd (drums) also co-directed with his brother Joe (vocals).

So enjoy the visuals and aural pleasures of the Swond sound and check out what they had to say about it after the vid. 1-2-3-4!

Here are the words of Swond themselves.

Taken from the forthcoming album ‘Into The Sea’. For a free download of this song go and ‘Like’ our facebook page here – http://www.facebook.com/swound

This is our homage to the genius of Brian Lee O’Malley’s Scott Pilgrim series and the amazing film adaptation by Edgar Wright.

We did all the filming, editing and effects ourselves because we enjoy doing things this way (and we are too poor to pay anyone).

The 8-bit tune at the start is a version of our hit single ‘Everybody Hates Her’, which you can view somewhere on here. We might get sued for using the Zelda tune but Nintendo can’t even comprehend the power that we have.

Thanks again to the above people for inspiring us to make this video. We hope the results do their work justice.

November 22nd, 2009 (II)

At BBC 6 Music recording ‘A Month Of Matinees’ – to go out Sunday Dec 20th, 15.30-17.30.

Simon Pegg is on Dec 6th, then Martin Freeman on Dec 13th, then me, then Bill Nighy on the 27th.

Will be fun. I played an extremely eclectic mix of music – Metric, Cornelius, Beck, The Slew, Brendan Canning, Frank Black, Art Brut, Fake Blood, Siriusmo, The Kinks, Lee Hazlewood, Liquid Gold (!) and much, much more.

Enjoy it when it’s on.

If you don’t follow myself, Mr Simon Pegg or Mr Nick Frost on Twitter, you missed out on a semi sequel to HOT FUZZ yesterday in the form of some very steamy tweets.

It all started with a discussion about X Factor’s identical twins John & Edward and a joke by me about slash fiction…

@edgarwright Has anyone written John & Edward slash fiction yet? Apart from themselves, that is.

@simonpegg @edgarwright Jeez and you had a pop at me for reading Twilight!

@simonpegg You’ve still got it Edgar. I don’t care what anyone says.
about 21 hours ago from TweetDeck

… this quickly transmorphed into a discussion about the amount of steamy HOT FUZZ slash fiction on the net involving Sergeant Nicholas Angel and Constable Danny Butterman.

@edgarwright: You want HOT FUZZ slash fiction? You got HOT FUZZ slash fiction. http://bit.ly/EU8SY Enjoy.

This is turn led to myself, Simon and Nick tweeted our own little slivers of slash fiction chronicling the stolen glances, loaded comments and pregnant pauses between our dynamic duo. And things got very hot and sweaty indeed.

This may be the HOT FUZZ sequel you’ve been begging for. Read on.

So that was the further adventures of Angel and Danny. I’ll leave you with Simon’s touching epilogue.

@simonpegg “What shall we do?” Asked Danny, full of puppyish enthusiasm. “Your call Constable Butterman”, purred Angel. Danny smiled, “Willy fight?”
about 12 hours ago from TweetDeck

I cannot say how much we all enjoyed writing these. You slash fiction writers are having way too much fun.

Buh bye.

Look closer at last night’s blog picture…

What is that behind me…?
