"Three Flavors" Trilogy Posters

These three minimalistic posters were created in honor of the great Edgar Wright and Simon Pegg “three flavors,” trilogy, created by Deviant Artist DaMovieMan. Incredibly stylish. The World’s End releases in America August 23 and it couldn’t feel any further away…

[FNM] ‘Scott Pilgrim’ Meets ‘Magic: The Gathering’ In This Epic Fan-made Short Film
If Edgar Wright and Bryan Lee O’Malley teamed up to make a movie about Magic, it’d probably go something like this. This film was created by Spencer Alexander for the 2011 Fox Film Festival where it took home the award for Best Editing and was a runner-up for the Audience Choice Award.


Stuck with a peppy female sidekick and up against seemingly insurmountable odds, young Lucas Penner enters himself into a clandestine underground card-playing tournament, unaware of the challenging opponents that stand between him and ultimate glory.

Edgar Wright’s Ant Man Test Footage (Finally) Leaks Online

I would catch this while it is still hot. Chances are Marvel will put the lid on this real quick.

Back at Comic-Con last summer, fans were treated to test footage of Edgar Wright’s Marvel movie “Ant Man” due out in 2015. It shows Ant Man making his way down a hallway and taking out two agents, but doing it in a way that only Ant Man can. The footage looks like a lot of fun. But hell, you make anything from Marvel and Edgar Wright, and it will probably turn out to be a blast.

I have to give it to Marvel. Between this and Guardians of the Galaxy, they really are stepping out of their comfort zones. I hope that these films do well.

An Update About Ant-Man
IGN spoke with Edgar Wright recently to talk about his new upcoming film for the summer, The World’s End, starring none other than Shaun of the Dead/Hot Fuzz duo, Nick Frost and Simon Pegg. But IGN also got to ask some questions about the writer-director’s other upcoming project that hasn’t had much buzz lately: Ant-Man.
Edgar commented about how Ant-Man will take shape:

It’s a way of doing a superhero film within another genre. I wanted to tell an origin tale in a slightly different way. It’s part of the Marvel cinematic universe, but it also feels like its own piece.

He also told IGN why he’s taking so long with the film.

I’ve been collaborating with [Marvel boss] Kevin [Feige] during the whole of that cycle. I think people have always assumed… ‘Oh why is it taking so long to make?’ Part of it is because I wanted to make two other movies first. I wanted to make World’s End… me and Simon were very keen to make it and it felt like it was unfinished business and we wanted to wrap up the trilogy. The script came together really fast. Well not really fast, but it came together at a certain point where it was like ‘I really want to do this next.’
But to be honest, the later I do it, it feels like I could learn more, especially about special effects. It’s a big effects movie, so I’m pleased to go into it having done Scott Pilgrim and The World’s End because you’re always learning more about that side.

Here’s hoping the Ant-Man has a lot of the comic book style and effects that Scott Pilgrim vs. The World did, and much more to offer. Real stoked for this. Read the interview bits over here, via IGN.

The Scott Pilgrim vs. the World 2-disk Blu-ray/DVD combo is just $11.99 on Amazon right now. That’s 56% off the original price of $26.98, holmes! You should probably go get it since it’s already a cult classic and one of the most under-rated (box office wise) flicks to come out in years. Plus, the special features are the shiznit and there’s a buttload of ‘em.
Buy it now, fools!

SCOTT PILGRIM Band Sketches by Bryan Lee O’Malley.

The books are finished. The movie’s no longer in theaters. We’re done with the game. But that doesn’t mean the end of Scott Pilgrim news! Check out these character sheet sketches for the movie drawn by SCOTT PILGRIM creator Bryan Lee O’Malley himself! These pics were in the movie for a quick second, but chances are you didn’t even notice them.

It’s highly recommended that you check the slideshow in full screen mode for maximum raditude so you can see all of O’Malley’s clever little notes.

Fun fact: Tasha (aka Trasha) didn’t have her sheet used in the movie. Instead, director Edgar Wright had O’Malley change her name to “mystery drummer.
