Can he even do this without Edgar Wright’s involvement?
Simon Pegg has been on a bit of a sci-fi tear recently. With mixed results.
*smiles politely, looks around to see if anyone else seems to know what ‘Phineas and Ferb’ is*
He did everything but hire a skywriting plane to tell us. (Not really)
Warning! Spoiler Alert! There’s a lot a competition for best zombie movie. Some might say the best was the racially tinged horror classic, Night of the Living Dead. They…
This mission just got a lot more impossibler.
The next surprise would be to learn that he directed the whole thing, while J.J. Abrams did drugs in his hotel room.
Sure. This sounds agreeable enough.
“Chuck” told the tale of an average kid who has a message from the CIA embedded into his brain. While it was very well received critically, it never managed to…
Simon Pegg, Edgar Wright, and Nick Frost tie one on one last time.

The trailer would indicate a little of the ‘Bourne’ DNA in this one. And an Eminem song.
Expect to see a lot of him in the next ‘Mission: Impossible’ sequel.
He wants Crowe to play the lead in his hyper-violent superhero movie, ‘The Boys’. Sounds like a stretch.
Brush up on their projects.
Paul is like all those comedies I used to like, the kind where they were just plain good.
DIRECTOR: Greg Mottola
CAST: Simon Pegg; Nick Frost; Seth Rogen; Jason Bateman; Kristen Wiig; Sigourney Weaver
SYNOPSIS: Two British comic-book geeks traveling across the U.S. encounter an alien outside Area 51.
Simon Pegg and Nick Frost might be afflicted with the opposite of whatever Samson had. Their long hair totally kills their comedic strength.
In the video, director Brad Bird retires from animation, then we see Tom Cruise and Simon Pegg holding him hostage.
Comic-Con, secret government alien (?) weed, girl-on-robot sex: these are the topics that all movies should be discuss.
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 entitled Conan O’Brien Can’t Stop.
I was a little let down when I saw the original UK trailer for Greg Mottola’s Paul. With all the poop jokes and nut shots, it felt a little too Kangaroo Jack for my tastes. But after viewing this domestic trailer, I’m looking forward.
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.
Over the weekend we got c*ck-teased with snippets of images from a first look at Steven Spielberg and Peter Jackson's The Adventures of Tintin: The Secret of the Unicorn: Longest Title Ever. Now Empire has officially unbuttoned its blouse and unleashed the goods. We have three honest-to-goodness official images.
Jamie Bell plays Tintin and Snowy his dog is played by…not Andy Serkis! Haha! Gotchu! You totally thought that since it was a mo-cap animal it HAD to be Andy Serkis. He's not in every mo-cap movie, ya know? But he is in this one, as Captain Haddock. You couldn't keep that guy away from a unitard with diodes on it if you tried.
The Adventures of Tintin: The Secret of the Unicorn: Longest Title Ever doesn't come out until next Christmas, so check out the pics after the jump to get a taste.
Simon Pegg and Nick Frost have teamed up in the past to take on horror and the action genre, now they've set their sights on sci-fi. As this teaser for Paul will show you, the pair play nuuurrrdddssss who encounter an alien outside of Area 51.
Not much comedy is shown in this teaser and I need to applaud Greg Mottola's restraint in not having the alien play air guitar or perform a Black Eyed Peas song. Because that's the constant temptation and danger with working with CGI characters. Before you even realize it, you've veered into Alvin and the Chipmunks territory.
Check out the teaser after the jump…
When did Maxim shoots get so old timey?
I know that I work for the Internet and am supposed to automatically love everything Simon Pegg does by default, but this trailer for Burke and Hare really doesn't portray the film in a favorable light. Andy Serkis's motion capture looks really convincing. It's almost looks like he's real.
The story is based on the true story of Irish serial killers in Edinburgh, Scotland who murder their victims to then sell them as medical cadavers. The trailer cites the desire to save enough money to bang Isla Fisher as the motive behind the slayings. I can't imagine a court where that defense wouldn't hold up.
Check out the trailer after the jump…
In 1968, Pegg would have been two years old, so either he's got a doppelganger out there, or he's REALLY into "Quantum Leap."
DIRECTOR: Steven SpielbergCAST: Jamie Bell; Andy Serkis; Simon Pegg; Daniel Craig; Nick FrostSYNOPSIS: Tintin and his friends discover directions to a sunken ship commanded by Capt. Haddock's ancestor and go off on a treasure hunt.
