If you were waiting and hoping for a reunion of Nick Frost and Simon Pegg‘s characters from Shaun of the Dead, or any of the other Cornetto trilogy films, you’re in luck. Sort of. Maybe. The duo will be revisiting those characters on Phineas and Ferb, a Disney Channel cartoon that is pegged at kids about 12 and under.

So…why?

Two reasons: Phineas and Ferb is likely trying to pander to adults, namely parents of the viewing children with this stunt, and b) because Simon Pegg has appeared on it before, stepping up as C-3PO on its Star Wars special. Any show that has a Star Wars special is likely to have some crossover appeal to Simon Pegg fans, especially in light of recent rumors.

And if you’re unfamiliar with Phineas and Ferb (If you’re reading this site, you likely are), it’s an animated show about two stepbrothers who partake in adventures in their backyard. Hmm. Ok.

All Simon Pegg wants to do is complete the Golden Mile. The epic pub crawl he and his friends failed to finish decades earlier consists of twelve pubs in the same town, the last of which is “The World’s End.” However, there’s a new obstacle in their way.Frickin’ body snatchers.

With The World’s End, Edgar Wright, Pegg, and Nick Frost complete the Three Flavours Cornetto Trilogy they began with Shaun of the Dead and continued with Hot Fuzz. Up until this point, the plot was tightly under wraps with no mention of skin-walking alien invaders, which now just makes the film all the more awesome. And again with the fences.

We’ll need to wait until October 24th, 2013 to see the final entry in the Blood and Ice Cream Trilogy, but we have to wait zero minutes to see the poster for The World’s End. As with Shaun of the Dead and Hot Fuzz, Simon Pegg, Edgar Wright, and Nick Frost are all back together to skewer Hollywood and mundanity in one fell swoop.

In the film, Pegg and Frost join Martin Freeman, Paddy Considine, and Eddie Marsan as a group of old friends reuniting for an epic pub crawl. However, they’ve inconveniently scheduled it the same night as armageddon. Check out the poster below and let me know what you think. Seems to me that if it were my last night on Earth, I’d want something a bit tastier than “good” food.

Finally some dwarf news that doesn’t pertain to The Hobbit. Snow White and the Huntsman has their seventh and final dwarf. Nick Frost has agreed to step into Universal’s miniaturazition beam to join fellow warrior dwarves Ian McShane, Bob Hoskins, Toby Jones, Ray Winstone, Eddie Marsan, and Stephen Graham.

Originally there was word that Eddie Izzard would also appear as a dwarf but that news now seems to have been “tossed” out. (Variety)

In London’s toughest neighborhood, children walk around at all hours carrying Super Soaker squirt guns. Not exactly the type of place you want to wander into alone after dark. Not unless you like walking around with the embarrassment of a wet shirt. Oh yeah, there are also alien monsters that will eat you.

Now that the film is coming to America, we have a red band trailer for Attack the Block that gives a better look at what all the praise has been about. It’s shows a lot of action, scares, and a clearer idea of the film’s sense of humor. Looks like a clever comedy that doesn’t pull any punches.

Roll With New 'Attack The Block' Trailer Featuring Basement Jaxx

The highly anticipated, low budget alien invasion flick Attack the Block hits US theaters in limited release July 29. With solid buzz from SXSW, Edgar Wright as a producer and Nick Frost as a co-star, many are hoping the film will be a sleeper hit. Sony‘s opening it opposite Cowboys & Aliens, which takes some big, green alien balls. Maybe the cowboys and the street teens will end up working together to fight their common enemy. That’d be nice.

Attack The Block is the directorial debut of Joe Cornish.

With Joe Cornish‘s Attack The Block poised to open in the UK on May 13th, the expected sleeper hit of the summer is back with a new trailer. Accompanied by an original score by  Basement Jaxx, this trailer already makes me want to trip balls.

But I should probably hold off on the mescaline with all these inner city youths around. Their access to swords and explosives is far too easy. If anyone needs me, I’ll be hiding under the pile of coats in Nana’s room. (Guardian)

If you bought an expensive plane ticket to go see Attack The Block when it premieres in the UK this Spring, I’ve got some news that is really going to piss you off. Screen Gems has bought the rights to distribute the film in the United States.

Directed by Joe Cornish, the movie focuses on a group of inner city youths who have to defend their home against alien invaders. Screen Gems president Clint Culpepper had this to say, “Steve Bersch screened this film for me and I fell completely in love with it.  The film is, at once, charming, scary, funny, hip, clever and completely hits its mark. I hope this is the beginning of a long relationship with these incredibly talented filmmakers.”

Early buzz is that the film is fantastic and I look forward to seeing it in the theater here when it is eventually released. But don’t feel too bad if you spent all that money on a ticket to Europe. They have really good KFC’s in England. I can’t put my finger on it, but they are better than they are over in the States. (Deadline)

SXSW Review: Paul http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-review/sxsw-review-paul/ http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-review/sxsw-review-paul/#comments Mon, 14 Mar 2011 05:34:25 +0000 Fred Topel http://www.screenjunkies.com/?p=201433 Paul is like all those comedies I used to like, the kind where they were just plain good.

The post SXSW Review: Paul appeared first on Screen Junkies.

Paul is like all those comedies I used to like, the kind where they were just plain good. They had a little of everything and just worked. That makes it harder to write about since there’s no hook except overall solid work, but I’m up to the task.

Graeme (Simon Pegg) and Clive (Nick Frost) are Brits visiting Comic-Con. On the road to Area 51, they meet an actual alien Paul (Seth Rogen). Paul needs their help but won’t tell them much at first. At an RV park, they pick up Ruth Buggs (Kristen Wiig), a devout Catholic who experiences an awakening when she witnesses the existence of Paul. Agents Zoil (Jason Bateman), O’Reilly (Joe Lo Truglio) and Haggard (Bill Hader) are on their tail.

Pegg and Frost, who wrote the script, deliver on all the sci-fi, comic book and general movie references you’d hope for. You’ll hear familiar music, lines of dialogue and even a reference to spoilers themselves, incorporated seamlessly into the narrative. Try to catch the obscure Capturing the Friedmans joke. It’s not all mainstream. Clive and Graeme also recreate some familiar action moments that I just know Frost and Pegg were saving since Hot Fuzz (the age old “grab my hand” bit.)

It’s not ALL sci-fi, so there’s plenty to amuse general audiences, although it never sells out the target audience for a mainstream laugh. They do sex jokes, drugs jokes and some good old fashioned immaturity, mooning through windshields and swearing creatively. I love the running gags. Whenever a joke happens more than once, it’s instantly funnier to me.

Paul is a great character. He’s the everyman alien so he gets indignant about alien clichés, and he has base needs like anyone. The CGI looks real and interactive with the scene and characters. It never feels like they had to construct a scene to fit the effect. Clive and Graeme are delightful, childish foreigners and Ruth has a sweet arc in between Wiig-y profanity outbursts, which are also awesome.

Like the classic comedies, there’s a bit of depth with Paul confronting Ruth’s creationist beliefs. Paul actually heals Ruth, which is sweet considering at that point in the story he hates her. Is it predictable? Yes, in that I knew where the story was going, but I’d also call that paying off. Most importantly, it’s all funny.

Ever since Shaun Of The Dead, people have wondered, “Hey, when will we get something else like Shaun Of The Dead?” The answer is, right now.

The producers of that film are back with Attack The Block. The Inner City takes on Outer Space when an alien species heretofor unknown to science attacks project housing in South London. The residents rise up to become unlikely heroes although they’d rather stay home and play FIFA. You may be curious why Nick Frost appears as a guy who pals around with children but you can relax. He’s merely there to sell them drugs. No funny stuff.

It looks like fun summer entertainment. Early reviews are great, so here’s hoping it does well with American audiences as well. Otherwise, it will be filed away with Club Dread in the Films We Never Speak Of bin. (Empire)

We’ve got some new clips from Team Hot Fuzz‘s upcoming film Paul (courtesy of British sites Empire and Sky). Simon Pegg and Nick Frost never fail to disappoint, though I have to admit, I’ve had my doubts about this project. No Edgar Wright directing, an alien that’s just Seth Rogen as an alien (they could have slapped some antennae on him and saved a space ton of CG money) and a big part for Kristen Wiig, the SNL cast member who I’ve fast-forwarded past so many times, my TiVO does it for me now.

However, in these clips, I can see the elements working together nicely. Comic-Con, secret government alien (?) weed, girl-on-robot sex: these are the topics that all movies should discuss. Plus director Greg Mottola shot Superbad, which I continue to McLovin, despite how dated that reference has already become.

Paul will beam you into theaters March 18. (JoBlo)

A handful of rather high profile films have been added to the lineup of March’s South by Southwest film festival, including Greg Mottola‘s Paul, Jodie Foster‘s The Beaver, and a new documentary about the most persevering redhead in late night TV, entitled Conan O’Brien Can’t Stop. The O’Brien doc and The Beaver will be enjoying their world premieres at the festival, while Greg Mottola’s Paul will have its North American premiere there.

All three films are highly anticipated, but for vastly different reasons. Paul, a road comedy about two men and an alien(!), is the third film starring and written by the Shaun of the Dead and Hot Fuzz duo, Simon Pegg and Nick Frost, who spin genre comedy into nerd gold. Foster’s The Beaver is the tale of a seriously disturbed man who connects with his loved ones using a beaver hand puppet, and he’s played by notoriously disturbed man Mel Gibson. The O’Brien doc should excite audiences with a behind the scenes look at the struggles of the talk show host you love to root for.

The fest kicks off March 11th and runs through the 19th. Opening starts with Duncan JonesSource Code, a thriller starring Jake Gyllenhaal and Michelle Monaghan. (The Playlist)

I am a little concerned about Seth Rogen though. I heard he was trying to slim down but I think he’s gone too far. His skin is all pale, and his eyes are so bugged out. Not to mention the total lack of body hair. I’m afraid that whatever crash diet he subjected himself to, just wasn’t the healthiest route to go. And all for what? To see his name up in lights?? Sadly, another victim of the Fame Monster.

A new trailer for Paul, starring Simon Pegg, Nick Frost and Seth Rogen has hit the Internet.

The comedy tells the story of two UFO nuts who happen upon a stranded alien while traveling to Area 51. The pair decide to help the creature rather than turn him over to the authorities. Normally, a character that is completely CGI comes off as kind of corny, with a few obvious exceptions (LOTR, Avatar, etc.). But for Paul, it might actually add to the laughs.

I myself once picked up an alien trying to get back to its far away home world of “Guatemala.” But I was afraid it was going to lay eggs in my stomach, so I tried to beat it to death with a rake. It got away, but not before I taught it a valuable lesson about the resilience of mankind. Also, the cops came. (First Showing)
