Shaun of the Dead
This past weekend saw the theatrical release of The World's End, the third film in the so-called "Blood and Ice Cream Trilogy" that began with Shaun of the Dead and continued with Hot Fuzz.
Looking for a reason to pop open a cold one and chill out a bit in front of your computer screen this Friday evening before heading out with your mates? Then we have your solution with a quintet of clips from The World's End.
If you're a fan of Shaun of the Dead and Hot Fuzz, you're probably wondering how you can see The World's End as soon as possible, am I right? Well, we've got the scoop on how you can see it a day early alongside the other two flavors in the Cornetto Trilogy!
We promised to keep you hooked into all things The World's End over the course of this month, and that's a promise we intend on keeping. Read on for what's new and on tap at your favorite watering hole!
Simon Pegg and Edgar Wright's 'Blood and Ice Cream Trilogy' goes out with a bang later this month, in the long awaited follow-up to Shaun of the Dead and Hot Fuzz, The World's End.
It only happens once a year officially, but any devoted pothead will tell you that 420 happens at least once a day. For the uninitiated, 420 is a term used primarily in North America that refers to the consumption of cannabis and, by extension, a way to identify oneself with cannabis subculture.
Sequels... how we love them. Not sure why we love them because except for a few rare exceptions, they are normally tremendous letdowns, but we love them nonetheless. There's just something about seeing that next chapter in our favorite stories that's so damn alluring.
Earlier this year we brought you the news of an incredibly talented Lego artist who had designed a diorama of the Shaun of the Dead zombie siege upon The Winchester pub. Well, we've got some interesting updates for you.
Update Mar 30, 2012: Simon Pegg Pushes for Shaun of the Dead Lego on Conan O'Brien Show. Earlier this week we featured an insane Legos rendering of the Winchester from Shaun of the Dead erected by a guy who goes by the handle of Yatkuu. The creation has been so well received that there is a possibility it could become an actual set produced by Lego...and you Dread Central readers can help put it over the top.
Legos have evolved greatly since we put our last castles together back in the early '80s. No longer are you just given a pile of bricks and forced to build another shitty formless house. Today's kids have movie-licensed Legos based on Harry Potter, Toy Story, "SpongeBob," etc. And we've been fine with that... until now. We didn't get jealous until we saw Shaun of the Dead reconstructed in Legos.
We've said it dozens of times: Shaun of the Dead was the film that Zombieland strived to be. Interestingly enough, the latter was originally conceived as a television program, and now it seems that Shaun will be heading in that direction soon!
A handful of rather bizarre DVD re-releases are on tap this week for some reason including Evil Remains, Shallow Ground, and Satan's Little Helper; but at least they're accompanied by several new films, a box set of the entire Friday the 13th: The Series, a twin-pack of Carnival of Souls in both color and black & white, and Shaun of the Dead and Godzilla on Blu-ray!
