A ways back we heard through the grapevine that 'Shaun of the Dead' stars and frequent Edgar Wright collaborators Simon Pegg and Nick Frost would reprise their 'Dead' roles for the Disney Channel's upcoming 'Phineas and Ferb' Halloween special, and the Eve approaches. We won't get a 'Shaun' sequel anytime soon (we hope), so see Shaun and Ed back in action serving up fried gold for 'Phineas and Ferb' right now!
The Disney Channel's long-running 'Phineas and Ferb' has managed some impressive guest stars and tribute episodes in recent years, but its latest get is a slice of fried gold. Ten years after its release, 'Shaun of the Dead' stars Simon Pegg and Nick Frost have announced that iconic zombie-killers Ed and Shaun will return in animated form for a forthcoming Halloween special of 'Phineas and Ferb.'
J.J. Abrams is notorious for keeping his cards close to the chest, whether it's straight-up lying to the press about casting and plot twists, or releasing head-scratching footage for his "secret projects." With 'Star Wars: Episode 7,' it was incredible how nearly the entire cast was kept under wraps until the big announcement, but is there at least one more big name to be revealed? We're referring to his 'Star Trek Into Darkness' buddy Simon Pegg.
We've got a brand new trailer for 'The Boxtrolls,' the new film from Laika, the animation studio that brought us the dark and quirky hits 'ParaNorman' and 'Coraline,' and this one looks jut as insanely inventive and totally cute. Who knew trolls could be so adorable?
There are plenty of contradictions in the new trailer for 'The Boxtrolls.' First, how could the title characters be so ugly but so cute? Second, how can environments that gray and depressing be rendered so beautifully? We've seen plenty of trailers for this film so far and each time, this thing looks a little more charming and the stop-motion animation a little more beautiful. Can this be the third winner in a row for the Laika animation studio?
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.
Stop-motion animation may play second fiddle to CG animation when it comes to popularity and box office clout, but there's no denying which one is cooler. Laika, the studio being 'Coraline' and 'Paranorman,' knows just how impressive (and difficult) their work is and they're not shy about showing off in the trailer for their newest film, 'The Boxtrolls.' Although it offers no story and no dialogue, it makes one thing very clear: although few people in the world are doing stop-motion these days, no one does it as well as Laika.
