‘A Fantastic Fear of Everything’ Trailer: Simon Pegg Is Afraid of…You Know

There are few actors with such instant appeal and range as Simon Pegg, who effortlessly won our hearts with performances in ‘Shaun of the Dead,’ ‘Star Trek‘ and bunch of your other favorite movies. While he keeps on nabbing roles in major blockbusters, it’s reassuring to see him still taking chances on smaller, homegrown comedies as shown in the ‘A Fantastic Fear of Everything‘ trailer, depicting a British comedy that looks like it’ll appeal to fans of his collaborations with Edgar Wright.

The overstuffed trailer sells what looks like a very odd (and hopefully, very funny) movie that lets Pegg play at his most manic. A riff on murder mysteries, ‘A Fantastic Fear of Everything’ definitely looks like it takes inspiration from Wright’s body of work, but it also looks more surreal and fantastical. There are shots that look stylized and homemade, like something out of a Terry Gilliam or Wes Anderson film. The movie looks amusing enough overal,l and we’re not ones to turn down a Simon Pegg film.

Here’s the official synopsis:

Jack (Simon Pegg) is a children¹s author turned crime novelist whose detailed research into the lives of Victorian serial killers has turned him into a paranoid wreck, persecuted by an irrational fear of being murdered. When Jack is thrown a lifeline by his long-suffering agent, and a mysterious Hollywood executive takes a sudden and inexplicable interest in Jack¹s script, what should be his “big break” rapidly turns into his ”big breakdown” as Jack is forced to confront his worst fears; among them love, laundromats and serial killers.

‘A Fantastic Fear of Everything’ is directed by Crispian Mills and Chris Hopewell. It opened in UK cinemas in 2012, but will be arriving on VOD on January 7, 2014 before hitting theaters on February 7, 2014.
