Simon Pegg—Scotty himself—will now lend his writing talents to the script alongside Doug Jung.

Here’s some fun news for a slow post-holiday weekend: a theater company in the UK has received Edgar Wright and Simon Pegg’s blessings for their live stage production of ‘Shaun of the Dead.’ Based on Wright’s debut feature film, the stage show includes musical sequences, audience participation, and encourages fans to come dressed as zombies or their favorite characters. Similar in spirit to the long-running tradition of ‘Rocky Horror Picture Show’ late night shadow performances, the ‘Shaun’ stage show is a recreation of the modern classic. And to celebrate their upcoming tour of the show, the company has released this pretty neat little trailer.

Simon Pegg has built his career on playing charming, affable everymen, but ‘Kill Me Three Times’ presents him with a different sort of role: a charming, affable assassin. Decked out in a black suit and rocking the hell out of a sleazy mustache, the film looks like a delightful left turn for an actor who could have easily coasted for the rest of his career. Hopefully, there are more surprises lurking in the film than what is revealed in the first trailer.

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.

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.
