Simon Pegg: The World's End avoids parody

Jan 23 2013, 10:45am CST | by

Simon Pegg says 'The World's End' won't be a parody.

The British funnyman claims the final instalment of his wacky 'Three Flavours Cornetto' trilogy - following 'Shaun of the Dead' in 2004 and 'Hot Fuzz' in 2006 - won't be an obvious spoof of the thriller genre and will tie the franchise together with its message about personal struggle.

He explained: '' 'The World's End' isn't a send-up in any way, in fact, we've gone out of our way not to populate the film with references to other movies, in order to avoid that [parody] label.

''The theme that will bind the three films together is not parody or even ice cream, it's a preoccupation with the struggle of the individual against the collective. Shaun vs zombies, Angel vs the NWA, Gary King vs (???).''

The 42-year-old joker - who is reunited with Nick Frost and Edgar Wright in the new comedy - has big plans for the trilogy and hopes future drama students will pick the movies apart and write essays about the link between them.

Speaking to Blake London, he mused: ''Thematically, it will all make sense when the three films can be viewed consecutively. This sounds lofty but they form a dialectic sequence, which I hope film students will write essays about. 'Shaun of the Dead' = evolution, 'Hot Fuzz' = devolution, 'World's End' = revolution.''

'The World's End' also stars Martin Freeman, Eddie Marsan, Rosamund Pike and Paddy Considine and will be released on August 14 in the UK.

Star Trek Into Darkness Bloopers: Watch Cast Dance Off!

Sep 11 2014 12:58pm CDT | Source: movie fanatic

Star Trek Into Darkness split fans and critics (check out our Star Trek Into Darkness review to see what we thought). But, one thing we will agree on is that the film’s blooper reel is nothing short of brilliant. The clip has come online and we have it below and several things stand out. We knew with his comic background in films such as Shaun of the Dead that Simon Pegg can be hilarious. But, who knew that Zachary Qu ...

Ahead of Walker Stalker Con Atlanta, I was lucky enough to snag a few minutes of time with the key makeup artist of The Walking Dead who also happens to be the director of several episodes of the wildly popular series.
