Simon Pegg and Edgar Wright together again for the first time. And Nick Frost. And Martin Freeman. And Eddie Marsan. And Rosemund Pike. And Paddy Considine.
I’m dying from the awesome already.
Oh great, and as I’m always the designated driver it’s up to ME to get the car, isn’t it…? (runs)
I hope it works. I hope it works. I hope it works.
If this were from some unknowns I’d probably write it off without another thought. But mmm…dat cast.
Ok, that’s the second time I saw a fence gag from Simon Pegg. I knew something was going to happen, and I laughed out loud anyways.
Perhaps I haven’t seen as much from the pair, but doesn’t Nick Frost usually play the irresponsible one of the pair?
GLORIOUS. Can’t wait!
oh, i can’t wait!
Cannot wait. I still can’t believe that the ‘shortcut’ gag still works.
This looks like “The Hangover” with British accents. And zombies.
For a second, I thought this was about that ultra-meta Seth Rogan/James Franco end of the world movie. And I thought the world might actually be ending if this headline applied. >.>
Yes, clearly that’s the big change-up here, that Pegg’s the screwup and Frost is the responsible one.
I’m obviously on board because I know how amazing this team’s movies are, but I have to admit, if I didn’t know that, this trailer might not have done much to sell me. It does indeed look a bit Hangover-ish (up til the aliens (?) show up, of course.)
It looks like a “you can’t go home again” dark comedy to me.
Part of why I’m excited about this is precisely because of the team it’s from.
I’m really looking forward to seeing Eddie Marsan in this: Edgar Wright seems to have an impeccable sense for primarily dramatic actors who should do comedy.
And Mark Heap is one of the barmen! Tiny thing, but it made me very happy.
The only way to top this awesomeness is if Bill Bailey makes a cameo…I am so looking forward to the ultimate answer to the ultimate question…how will they work in the last Cornetto? :)
oh, and Bill Nighy! PUH-leeze let Bill Nighy be in this.
This movie is awesome. Just back from a midnight screening.
Not convinced it’s quite as awesome as Shaun and Fuzz but when you set the bar that high…
It’s a tiny bit frustrating that Simon Pegg’s character gets a little more focus than Nick Frost’s but it’s definitely a new perspective on the pair as ‘buddies’.
