Edgar Wright’s Baby Driver is in theaters now and hopefully you have, or are planning to, see it. We recommend that. And afterwards, maybe you’ll be curious to know the real story behind arguably the film’s biggest laugh. We’ve got you covered.
At first glance, Baby Driver doesn’t look like it uses genre conventions in the way that Edgar Wright’s other works have. While you can easily see the homages to zombie horror and paranoid sci-fi in Shaun of the Dead and World’s End, the fusion at the heart of Baby Driver’s DNA is initially more elusive to parse. But…
Baby Driver is the latest film by cult movie director Edgar Wright, who gave the world Shaun of the Dead and Hot Fuzz. The one’s a heist-thriller quasi-musical love story that’s, oddly enough, easily Wright’s least energetic film with disappointing action and a story that makes a lot of noise but doesn’t really take…
Popular director Edgar Wright is someone who prides himself on a broad, diverse knowledge of film. He’s the kind of person that tries to see every movie that comes out. Unless, of course, you’re talking about the film he was supposed to make and didn’t.
So far for Senior Week, we’ve already well established that I’m a freak. Cold Han Solo, waiting in lines for hours, but this is where I go over the edge. The fact that, as a compulsive poster collector, I have more posters in my flat file than I have on my walls. So I figured it was time to give some of those posters…
When you think of mash-ups, I bet Chris Nolan’s Dark Knight trilogy and Edgar Wright’s kinetic take on Scott Pilgrim vs. The World are not what you’d think of as easy bedfellows. And yet, as this brilliant trailer proves, they’re pretty bloody great together.
Like all Edgar Wright films, The World’s End is a good movie to start with, and it gets even better on subsequent viewings. A lot of that is because of the care the director puts into setting up things that pay off subtly later in the movie.
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.
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.
