Popcorn Taxi is proud to present a great evening with legendary British comic filmmakers, writer/director EDGAR WRIGHT, writer/actor SIMON PEGG and actor NICK FROST, who will join us live on stage to discuss the making of their latest film HOT FUZZ, the action-packed new comedy from the makers of the hit movie SHAUN OF THE DEAD and critically acclaimed UK Channel 4 series SPACED. Tickets are sure to sell out fast for this exclusive and rare discussion so be quick!
In its first seven days at the UK box office, HOT FUZZ has raked in a whopping £7.1m (AUD$17.5m), making it the UK's top opening for a film in 2007 and beating the successful opening of their previous film SHAUN OF THE DEAD.
Nicholas Angel (Simon Pegg) is the finest police officer London has to offer, with an arrest record 400% higher than any other officer on the force. He’s so good, he makes everyone else look bad. As a result, Angel’s superiors send him to a place where his talents won’t be quite so embarrassing – the sleepy and seemingly crime-free village of Sandford. With garden fêtes and neighbourhood watch meetings replacing the action of the city, Angel struggles to adapt to his situation and finds himself partnered with Danny Butterman (Nick Frost), an oafish but well meaning young Constable. Just as all seems lost, a series of grisly accidents motivates Angel into action. Convinced of foul play, Angel realises that Sandford may not be as idyllic as it seems. With his faithful new partner in tow, Angel fights to prove his instincts are correct and uncover the truth about Sandford. Is Angel simply losing his mind in the safest, sweetest village in Britain? Or is something far more sinister at work? A small village is about to get some big city justice.
HOT FUZZ is written by Edgar Wright and Simon Pegg, reuniting the creative force behind SHAUN OF THE DEAD. Once again, Wright directs as Pegg leads a stellar cast which includes Nick Frost, Jim Broadbent and Timothy Dalton, Paddy Considine, Martin Freeman and Bill Nighy, amongst many others.
Popcorn Taxi would like to thank Paramount for their generous support in making this program possible. HOT FUZZ opens in cinemas nationally on 15th March. Visit the OFFICIAL WEBSITE for the HOT FUZZ trailer and further information on the film.
