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.

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.
Though we know funny movie maestro Edgar Wright uses a ginormous arsenal of visual tools and tricks when he's directing a movie, one of his trademarks is his use of close up shots. They're quick, they're snappy and they're so fun to see on the screen. James R. Lloret stitched all of them together in this fun supercut.

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.
