  2. Celebrate the 10th Anniversary of Shaun of the Dead With a Look at All Three Cornetto Film Scripts

    Then we'll meet back at the Winchester and wait for this all to blow over!

    Ten years ago exactly, Shaun of the Dead was first released to in UK theaters. Of course, North American audiences wouldn't get a hold of the film for another five months, but that doesn't mean we can't honor it's decade-long legacy by perusing its script, along with the scripts for Hot Fuzz and At World's End.

  3. Scenes From Zombie Movies And TV Shows As Impressionist Paintings

    Olden Lore

    With his series "Zombiescapes" artist George Pfau takes scenes from zombie movies and TV shows and makes them classy (well, classier) by illustrating them as impressionist paintings. Apart from the inherent coolness of mixing a classical art technique with something so relatively recent as our fascination with the brain-eating undead, the way Pfau's art takes scenes of gore and death and abstractifies them interesting on a conceptual level. What a pretty field, where things look so nice and peaceful. But you know what's really happening. Braaaaaains. (via: io9; see the rest on Pfau's website)

  4. Grab a Pint and Watch the First Trailer for Edgar Wright’s The World’s End

    This trailer for the new Edgar Wright, Simon Pegg, and Nick Frost movie The World's End looks like exactly the kind of thing these three do really well together. It sort of appears to be a cross between Shaun of the Dead and Hot Fuzz, but with aliens instead of zombies and the same creepy-small-town vibe. Basically, we're pretty pumped for it.

  5. Track Famous Characters’ Movements With These Awesome Movie Maps

    Fans Do Cool Things

    Man, Harrison Ford sure does jet-set around a lot in his movies. Well, in the Star Wars and Indiana Jones trilogies, anyways. (There was no fourth Indiana Jones. I don't want to hear it.) Artist Andrew Degraff gives us a better idea of how much travel famous characters rack up with his map versions of the aforementioned trilogies, plus The Goonies, North by Northwest, and Shaun of the Dead. They're brilliantly designed, and I love them even if they make me feel kinda bad that the most traveling I ever do is home for the holidays and back.

  6. Watch the First Four Minutes of Warm Bodies, We Promise It’s Not Just Zombie Twilight

    Hearing there's a movie that's a love story between a human girl and a zombie could draw instant comparisons to Twilight on the basis of a girl and an undead boy being in love, but the first trailer for Warm Bodies alleviated most of those suspicions. It even looked pretty good. Today they released a clip of the first four minutes of Warm Bodies that should put to rest any lingering doubts that this thing has potential.

  7. The Hobbit’s Martin Freeman Dubs Himself Geek Prince, We Don’t Argue

    I'll Allow It

    "I’m geek royalty now. That’s the main responsibility. It’s not playing Bilbo, it’s my responsibility as a geek prince." - Hobbit star Martin Freeman speaking at the New York premiere of The Hobbit: The Unexpected Journey. Freeman is of course also stars in BBC's Sherlock, The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy, and Shaun of the Dead. Enough to make him a Prince, or is The Hobbit enough? He also told reporters, "I hope by the time my life is over I’ve given [fans] something else to talk about but I think in all reality I think it’s very likely that they’ll be calling me Bilbo." Speaking of fans, several paid $500 to attend the premiere. Proceeds went to the American Film Institute. (via The Hollywood Reporter)   Previously in The Hobbit

  10. (NSFW) Trailer for Attack the Block Promises Inner-City Kids Fighting Aliens

    Almost Totally Excellent

    Last week we got the release of J.J. Abrams' kids-make-monster-movie-find-aliens flick, Super 8. Now, the task of finding aliens falls to a distinctly different group of rambunctious South London teenagers in Joe Cornish's Attack the Block. As Blastr points out, usually when movies portray inner-city kids it's to tell us gritty stories of drug dealing or lessons learned. It's somewhat refreshing to just see them, you know, save the world instead. The trailer also feature's Hot Fuzz and Shaun of the Dead star Nick Frost and offers the tagline "Inner City vs. Outer Space," so I'm calling this one a winner right here and right now. (via Blastr)
