Edgar Wright

  1. Spaced Newbie Recap, “Epiphanies”

    Is there any song in existence as instantly feel good as “Come On Eileen” by the Dexy’s Midnight Runners? What a way to start the episode. Hell, what an episode in general. It doesn’t seem like much of a reach to say that the sixth episode “Epiphanies” is Spaced's finest installment to date.

  2. Spaced Newbie Recap: “Chaos”

    Despite an action-packed episode courtesy of Tim’s adoration of Star Wars, “Chaos” almost seems to be a relaxed version of the show. While it's certainly not a weak episode (does this show do weak episodes?), it’s definitely a more sedated version than we’ve gotten for the prior four weeks. Despite this, Edgar Wright goes all out in his love of quick cuts, exaggerated close ups, and sound effects paired with both.

  3. Spaced Newbie Recap, “Battles”

    We finally got more Mike this week!

    With this weeks episode of Spaced I saw two more Edgar Wright-isms introduced in the early stages of his career. First, there was his love of people jumping out of windows and out of scene, which would of course come back in Scott Pilgrim vs The World and The Worlds End. Then, Tim says to Brian "you've got some paint on you" which can't help but make me remember "you've got red on you" from Shaun of the Dead.

  4. Spaced Newbie Recap, “Art”

    My word, is David Williams' character Vulva ever on the eerie side.

  5. Spaced Newbie Recap, “Gatherings”

    I don’t see myself ever not saying this, but I loved this episode! It had me laughing essentially from the beginning until it ended, while allowing us to learn more about our oddball lead characters. The premise is again deceptively simple: Daisy, like many of us, is an enthusiastic procrastinator and decides to throw a party instead of sitting down to write anythin

  6. Spaced Newbie Recap, “Beginnings”

    There are no filmmakers like Edgar Wright. Wright has taken what’s fun about the cinematic experience and projected it through a lens that’s full of cheeky humor, impressively diverse visuals, and an emotional thorough line. All the while, he takes familiar narratives (buddy cop movies, zombies and aliens) and compresses them into a more singular story, while simultaneously broadening the topics to find something that can reach past those formulaic tropes.

  7. Edgar Wright Is Making A Steampunk Oliver Twist Movie Which Sounds Awesome Don’t Even Lie To Yourself

    Edgar Wright has apparently turned in a script for a steampunk Oliver Twist film, so we can all stop being sad about Ant-Man now, I guess.

  8. Evangeline Lilly Just DNGAF in the New Ant-Man Images

    "This movie should have been called 'The Wasp.'"

    I mean really, even if she doesn't turn out to be The Wasp, that face says it all.

  11. Things We Saw Today: Cornetto Trilogy Figurines Have Got Some Red On ‘Em

    Let's just go to the Winchester and wait for all this to blow over.

    A Large Evil Corporation (excellent name is excellent) has produced three sets of highly-detailed vinyl figurines to honor Nick Frost and Simon Pegg's characters in each installment of the beloved Cornetto Trilogy.

  12. Instead of Ant-Man, Edgar Wright Will Direct a Movie About Giant Insects

    "Testicle-dissolving genetically modified corn." Say what now?

    Congratulations, people who really wanted to see Edgar Wright direct an insect movie! Ant-Man may have fallen through, but things are looking pretty good for Grasshopper Jungle, which Edgar Wright just became attached to direct for Sony Pictures.

    "It's Strange, MD."

    Also: Kevin Feige tries to convince us that we'll totally still dig Ant-Man even though Edgar Wright's gone. Really. What are you... no... don't walk away!

  14. Meet the Non-Edgar Wright People Who Might Direct Ant-Man Now

    If you liked it then you should have put a Lantern Ring on it

    I wrote a joke piece for Pajiba on directors who could replace Edgar Wright on Ant-Man, but unfortunately none of the ones I picked are on Marvel Studios' rumored shortlist. What's wrong, Marvel? You don't want Peter Jackson to direct a version of Ant-Man that's 99% scenery porn shots? You're missing out.

  15. Rub Salt in Your Ant-Man Wounds With a Compilation of Edgar Wright’s Unique Style

  16. Is This Why Edgar Wright Left Ant-Man?

    Today in things that make us scream incoherently

    Have your boulder of salt ready, because the basis for The Hollywood Reporter saying “Guys, we totally know why Edgar Wright left Ant-Man!” is that most beloved of entertainment journalism stalwart: The anonymous source. But it can be a small boulder, because the reason sounds well within the realm of possibility. Behold: Edgar Wright vs the Creative Hive Mind. And I'm not pleased.

  17. This Tribute to the Visual Comedy of Edgar Wright Fills Us With All the Ant-Man Feels [VIDEO]

    I'm In A Glass Case of Emotion

    Edgar Wright - How to Do Visual Comedy from Tony Zhou on Vimeo.

    No, watching this video tribute to Edgar Wright by Tony Zhou doesn't exacerbate the bitterness I still feel that Wright's isn't directing Ant-Man anymore, why do you ask? Not like the MCU—or any franchise—could've used an infusion of his unique filmmaking style, which is one of the most unique Hollywood has had in recent years. Pfffft. BRB, judging Kevin Feige.

  19. Edgar Wright Has Left Ant-Man Over Creative Differences With Marvel

    My desire to see this movie is now about the size of an ant.

    Remember how everybody thought that an Ant-Man movie sounded kinda dumb riiiight up until they learned that Edgar Wright would be directing it? Yeah, about that. You might wanna be sitting down for this: Wright, who's been associated with the project since as early as 2006, has stepped down from his role as director.

    Suddenly

    According to Marvel Entertainment just now, "Marvel and Edgar Wright jointly announced today that the studio and director have parted ways on Ant-Man due to differences in their vision of the film. The decision to move on is amicable and does not impact the release date on July 17, 2015. A new director will be announced shortly." Well, this was unexpected.
