Simon Pegg: The World's End was emotional reunion

Jul 11 2013, 4:22am CDT | by

Simon Pegg felt emotional at 'The World's End' premiere.

The actor found walking the red carpet for the third and final instalment of his laugh-out-loud Three Flavours Cornetto trilogy alongside director Edgar Wright and co-star Nick Frost a surreal and moving experience.

Speaking at the world premiere in London's Leicester Square last night (10.07.13), Pegg told BANG Showbiz: ''It's funny to come down this carpet in Leicester Square 10 years after making 'Shaun of the Dead'. It means a hell of a to us that we've been allowed to do this.

''The British film industry has always been a very aggressive place and it's an honour to be part of it. I love making films in this country, I love the talent we have in this country and I really want to continue making films here if I can.''

The film sees the 43-year-old star play eccentric loser Gary King, who reunites his motley crew of school friends to recreate their epic pub crawl from 20 years earlier, only to have their mission thwarted by supernatural forces.

Pegg admitted reuniting with the old gang for a film about nostalgia was a fitting tribute to their own last hurrah.

Asked whether the experience was nostalgic, he replied: ''In some respects yeah, a lot of people that were in 'Shaun of the Dead' and 'Hot Fuzz' are in this film so we had people back who we'd worked with for a long time. It was something of a reunion, the film was about that anyway so it was fitting.''

The 'Star Trek' funnyman claims he never expected the comedy trilogy - which is loosely linked by ice-cream - to be an international hit, and believes people appreciate the down-to-earth jokes and honest portrayal of human relationships in the films.

He said: ''I think we love what we do, were very passionate, we never take things for granted we try our very best and we consider it of paramount [importance] that we work hard and tell the truth. I hope people respond to our honesty and our furious work ethic.''

Edgar Wright, Nick Frost and Rosamund Pike joined Pegg on the blue carpet last night.

First Look: ‘Absolutely Anything’ Starring Simon Pegg and Most of Monty Python

Oct 29 2014 1:00pm CDT | Source: slash film

Simon Pegg has been through some very weird stuff on the big screen, including a zombie apocalypse and an attempted alien takeover. But his new movie Absolutely Anything gets even crazier, granting him the power to make “absolutely anything” happen. Directed by Terry Jones, the sci-fi comedy stars Pegg as a schoolteacher named Neil Clarke who gains magic powers after a brush with aliens. The film reunites Jones with his Monty Python mates John Cleese, Terry Gilliam, and Michael Palin, w ...

First ABSOLUTELY ANYTHING Images Have Simon Pegg Using Magic Powers in Terry Jones’ Sci-Fi Film That Reunites Monty Python Members

The first Absolutely Anything images have gone online, and while they don't tell us too much about the movie, it's still nice to get a first look at Terry Jones' upcoming sci-fi film.  Simon Pegg stars as Neil Clarke, a secondary school teacher who is given magical powers by aliens.  While that may seem fanciful, there seems to be a delightfully twisted edge to it.  “He can make anything happen”, says Jones, “[but] he doesn't realize it until his colleague says, ‘What wo ...

My Favorite Halloween Movie: SHAUN OF THE DEAD

Oct 28 2014 4:18pm CDT | Source: Collider

Movies are a funny thing.  They exist both in the moment and also forever.  Some films you forget the minute you walk out the theater, and others stay with you, spawning repeat viewings for years to come.  Not unlike music, I’d argue that films are very closely tied to memory.  Sure there are some you rewatch simply because you enjoy them or because they’re just that good, but others act as a sort of sensory time travel machine, summoning up the feeling ...

Good news: Edgar Wright‘s latest movie is here. Bad news: it’s only five minutes long.
