‘Doctor Who’ must seemingly always contend with rumors of its current cast departing, and though Peter Capaldi has been confirmed at least for a second year as the regenerating Time Lord, less certain is the fate of Jenna Coleman’s Clara. Certainly not helping matters is the official title for the 2014 Christmas special, which along with a new poster, teases that someone will be having their “Last Christmas!”

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!

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.

Simon Pegg and Nick Frost Interview: Growing Up, Getting Old and 'The World's End'

Simon Pegg and Nick Frost are serious blokes. Their new movie, 'The World's End,' acts as the finale of the informal "Cornetto" trilogy and once again partners the 'Shaun of the Dead' and 'Hot Fuzz' pair with director Edgar Wright. And while it's a comedy in the vein of those two films, it's tackling material that's significantly more mature than anything they have done before. Alcoholism, drug addiction, the deadliness of adult immaturity, all baked into the mold of a '70s sci-fi allegory — 'The World's End' walks a tightrope between poking fun and bathing in misery. The combination is exhilarating.
That's the appeal to Pegg, who co-wrote the film with Wright, and Frost, who had a great deal of say when it came to the film's evolution. In person, the duo bounce just as quickly between introspection and cracking wise as 'The World's End.' They're not in the business of cheap laughs. They make films and they're considerate of the artistic potential. Even a movie with killer robots can say something, and they're eager to say it.
I sat down with Pegg and Frost to talk 'The World's End,' why the movie has been floating around since 'Hot Fuzz' hit theaters, what they felt they owed fans years later, and why it might be awhile until we see them together again. No, there won't be anymore 'Spaced' (but they aren't afraid of speculating what happened to their TV counterparts).
