Few would argue that Edgar Wright is one of the most exciting filmmakers out in the world today. He’s made only four features, but each is infused with a uniquely palpable style and energy. Now, we’ll get to see what that looks like in animation.
This is neat: Johnny Depp is in discussions to join Edgar Wright’s adaptation of Neil Gaiman’s children’s book Fortunately, The Milk.
Marvel’s latest film, Ant-Man, had everything going against it. A literal and culturally tiny character, a very public behind-the-scenes controversy, and the task of coming between two films starring The Avengers. Director Peyton Reed and producer Kevin Feige told us how they made the impossible happen.
Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige dropped a ton of Marvel news in a new interview, including several teases of specifically how Ant-Man will have an effect on Phase Three of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, which directors he’s met with for upcoming movies, recasting roles, Spider-Man and more.
Cornetto trilogy director Edgar Wright is the latest person to turn in a draft of Dodge and Twist, a movie sequel to Charles Dickens' novel Oliver Twist, set in 19th century, Victorian steampunk England (based somewhat upon the "more serious" novel by former Doctor Who comic writer Tony Lee).
We're due for a new audience participation stage show that's a bloody good time. Enter Shaun of the Dead Live! As you can see from this stage play trailer, this adaptation is adorable. And it's made with the blessing of Simon Pegg!
Paramount is under a lot of pressure to put out a Star Trek movie by 2016, to capitalize on the 50th anniversary of the series. And they just hit a major snag: the movie's director, Roberto Orci, just left for unknown reasons. The good news? Rumor has it Edgar Wright could replace Orci.
Pharell in a statement hat? Check. Aerial silk? Check. Dancers doing gymnastic dance in outfits with far too long sleeves? Edgar Wright directing? Daft Punk as giant, flying, stone space ships? Check. Check. Check. Check.
Let us now celebrate the delightful barrage of close-up shots that accompany every Edgar Wright film with this wonderful compilation video, created by Jaume R. Lloret.
An intriguing photo from the set of Batman V. Superman surfaces—but what does it mean? See all of the episode descriptions for Doctor Who's new series. Plus, which Marvel characters might be next in line for their very own movies? Spoilers now!
Remember the garden scene from the greatest zombie film ever made, Shaun of the Dead? The one where Shaun (Simon Pegg) and Ed (Nick Frost) discover a zombie in their backyard and mistake her for a drunk girl, and take a pic? Well, it turns out Frost really did snap a real picture, and this is it.
Ant-Man director Edgar Wright broke his silence on his split with Marvel — although very briefly. He posted this picture with the message "selfie", and almost immediately deleted it. Of course, the internet is forever, and the pic was caught — and it's a subtle but definite rebuke to Marvel.
Admittedly, we know very little about what caused Edgar Wright to step down as director of Ant-Man on Friday, other than the parting was "amicable" according to Marvel. But that might not have been the case at all.
We were looking forward to seeing what director Edgar Wright was going to do with the Paul Rudd-starring Ant Man—but now Wright is leaving the film. What on earth happened?

Michael Douglas has officially signed on Edgar Wright's Ant-Man. And now Marvel is revealing that he's playing Hank Pym, which means Paul Rudd (the lead and younger Ant-Man of this story) is the other comic book iteration of this hero Scott Lang. But wait, there's a twist. Spoilers ahead.
UPDATE: It's official: Paul Rudd is the lead in Edgar Wright's Marvel movie Ant-Man, according to The Wrap. But which version of the size-changing ant-themed superhero is he possibly going to play?
Looks like Edgar Wright's Ant-Man is finally getting started! The director tweeted the above picture from the set, along with a peek at the new Ant-Man suit, which looks a bit upgraded from the one in that test footage shown at Comic-Con. Now the next question is: Who's in the suit?
The World's End is a really funny movie — but it's also a thought-provoking piece of science fiction, with a somewhat controversial ending. When we interviewed the stars and director of the film, we asked Simon Pegg about his take on the ending, and here's what he told us.
The World's End isn't the funniest movie of the summer. But it's pretty darn funny in places, and it crackles with storytelling energy. And it's a good example of how to do a science fiction comedy that's actually proper science fiction, not just a comedy with science-fictional trappings.
