Baby is a young man with a talent for driving and a love of music. As such, he uses his remarkable abilities as a getaway driver for a gang of criminals led by the ruthless Doc. Baby doesn't want to have to do this forever, but agrees to one more heist. Unfortunately, the probability of success is low, and his risk of death extremely high. When he meets a beautiful waitress named Deborah, he decides he wants to give up his life of crime once and for all - but Doc was never going to let him get away that easily. He risks life and limb attempting to leave town with the love of his life - trying his best to protect her because he knows that Doc wants to use her to get to him. He might be the best driver you'll find anywhere, but that doesn't give him much of a head start when an entire gang go after him.

The holy trinity that is Wright, Pegg and Frost will be making more films. That can only be a good thing.
Forget Hector and the Search For Happiness. That was a blip in the otherwise brilliant career of Simon Pegg. And anyway, he’s at his best when working with Edgar Wright – good news, then, that the pair has confirmed a brand new project together.
“Edgar and I were having a conversation the other day about it, and it has a title and everything. We're kind of into a creative cycle nowm” Pegg said when speaking to Edith Bowman on BBC 6 Music, "We've all got different things [going] on and we know we have to get those things done. The coming-together thing is without question on the table and will happen when we can do it."

After leaving Ant-man, Wright is to direct Baby Driver, a film that has been in the pipeline for several years already.
After a storm of scepticism surrounding Edgar Wright’s decision to walk away from the future Marvel blockbuster Ant Man, the British director has instead turned his hand to a new project which promises to put a fresh spin on the action-packed crime film. Having shot to directorial superstardom after the incredibly successful ‘Cornetto Trilogy’, his collaboration with long-time friends Simon Pegg and Nick Frost which included the crowd-pleasers Shaun Of The Dead, Hot Fuzz and World’s End, Wright has found himself as one of Hollywood’s most in-demand directors. Moreover, he has proved that he is unafraid to walk away from a project if he feels strongly perturbed by the direction it is being aimed toward by studio executives.
Wright left Ant Man after a prolonged dispute over the script
With Wright freed from Ant Man after script disputes, Baby Driver is reportedly being fast-tracked towards production, with the screenplay already being written following the Wright’s 2010 hit Scott Pilgrim Vs The World. Details on the film remain scarce, but a small amount of speculation has been addressed by the director in a series of interviews. As intrigued fans have pointed out, Baby Driver is also the name of a track from the iconic Simon and Garfunkle album Bridge Over Troubled Water. In an interview conducted in 2011, Wright conformed he had written a script that borders on being a musical, admitting that it would in many ways act as a departure for the director in terms of style.

Another name gets added to the Ant-Man rumour list this time it's ‘Neighbours’ director Nicholas Stoller
It’s been nearly a fortnight since Edgar Wright parted ways with Ant-Man and Marvel still hasn't found a replacement, but not for lack of trying. Since Wright’s departure, the three names we’d been hearing as potential replacements were Adam McKay, Rawson Thurber and Ruben Fleischer but two of these names have already turned down the job. But now a new name has found himself in the running, British born director Nicholas Stoller. But who is he and more importantly does he have the right credentials to take over Ant-Man?
Could this be the man to take on Ant-Man?
The well travelled Stoller was born in London, raised in Miami and educated at a New Hampshire boarding school. After graduating high school, he continued his education at Harvard College, where he cut his teeth writing for comedy publication The Harvard Lampoon. He also performed with the improv troupe The Immediate Gratification Players while an undergraduate.

The search for a new director begins now, but could it end with Joe Cornish?
It’s sad but true. Edgar Wright has departed Marvel’s Ant-Man movie with a new director to be announced shortly. Not much was divulged about Wright’s exit, but he and Marvel released a short joint statement on the Marvel website stating it was “due to differences in their vision of the film”.
Edgar Wright at the premiere for 'The World's End'
Here’s the statement in full: “Marvel and Edgar Wright jointly announced today that the studio and director have parted ways on Marvel's "Ant-Man" due to differences in their vision of the film. The decision to move on is amicable and does not impact the release date on July 17, 2015. A new director will be announced shortly.”

The film-maker and Marvel Studios parted ways "due to differences in their version of the film."
Director Edgar Wright has walked away from the upcoming Marvel flick 'Ant-Man' after being attached since 2006.
Marvel Studios made the shocking announcement on Friday (May 23rd), just as the film's pre-production is coming to an end.
Wright's exit was "due to differences in their version of the film," the studio announced.
The superhero film takes the slot vacated by Batman v Superman
Bad news ant fans; Ant-Man has been subject of a major release-date shift. With the untitled Superman-Batman pic moving to May 6, 2016, Marvel’s “Ant-Man” has taken the opportunity to move into its old slot, meaning it will be released on July 17, 2015.
Paul Rudd stars in Ant-Man
This means two things: fans of the character don't have to wait too long for the film, and the film will now be going up against Warners’ big-budget Peter Pan movie titled Pan, which promises to be a box office goliath.

The actor has been signed up to star in the upcoming Marvel adaptation
Michael Douglas has signed on to do his first Marvel film and will star as Hank Pym in the upcoming movie adaptation of Ant-Man. As revealed by the Marvel website, Douglas will join director Edgar Wright and star Paul Rudd, who plays Scott Lang, aka Ant-Man, in the movie due out next year.
Michael Douglas will play Hank Pym in the upcoming film
Hank Pym first appeared in Tales to Astonish #27 in January 1962 and was the first man to assume the identity of Ant-Man in the comic books, going on to assume other identities as the comic series continued, including the size-changing Giant-Man and Goliath, as well as the insect-themed Yellowjacket and briefly the Wasp, the alter ego of his crime-fighting wife Janet van Dyne. Pym was also one of the founding members of The Avengers and has regularly found himself fighting Ultron for the sake of humanity, so don't be surprised to see him tied into the next Avengers film too.

Take a look at some of the pictures from last night's London premiere.
Who would have thought “Cornetto” as a response to “Want anything from the shop” would herald one of the most popular comedy trilogies in British history. The last film in the trio – The World’s End – sees five buddies reunite to tackle a pub crawl, only to find out that 12 pints is the least of their problems.
Look at Pegg in his electric blue suit - a proud man
It premiered last night in Leicester Square, and we’ve got loads of snaps, which you can check out here.
Simon Pegg and Nick Frost, who star in the upcoming comedy 'The World's End', talk about the movie's director Edgar Wright in a short featurette. Producer Eric Fellner and stars Rosmund Pike, Paddy Considine and Eddie Marsan also offer their praise.
The cast and crew of 'The World's End', including producers Eric Fellner and Nira Park, director Edgar Wright and stars Paddy Considine and Rosamund Pike, praise lead actors Simon Pegg and Nick Frost on their genuine on and offscreen chemistry in a featurette featuring clips of the stars from their movies together including 'Shaun of the Dead', 'Hot Fuzz', 'Paul' and the TV series 'Spaced'.
The World's End has received rave reviews, though the soundtrack could be a popular record this summer.
The World's End - the third and final instalment of Edgar Wright's 'Cornetto' comedy trilogy starring Simon Pegg, Nick Frost and Paddy Considine - hits cinemas nationwide on July 19, 2013. It centres around five friends who attempt a notorious pub crawl in their unassuming hometown - twelve pubs, twelve pints and the only the strongest will survive.
Of course, the mind of Edgar Wright doesn't work think along quite such straight lines and the boozy group unwittingly become humankind's only hope for survival.
Also starring British talent Rosamund Pike, Eddie Marsen and The Hobbit star Martin Freeman, The World's End promises a hugely enjoyable finale for the trilogy - also featuring Shaun of the Dead and Hot Fuzz - though the soundtrack is worth checking out too.

The World's End was based on a real life pub-crawl in the 1990s, though Edgar Wright only managed six of the pubs.
Edgar Wright's hugely anticipated sci-fi comedy The World's End premieres in London on Wednesday (July 10, 2013) bringing together the British director, Simon Pegg and Nick Frost for the final time (for the Cornetto trilogy, at least). The movie stars Pegg as an immature 40-something who persuades four friends to undertake a marathon drinking session in a small English town. 12 pubs. 12 pints.
The gang's likely unreachable goal is to make it to the final pub - The World's End - though events taken an unpredictable turn.
What audiences may not be aware of is that Wright's comedy is based on a true life pub crawl he and friends undertook in the 1990s. The filmmaker enlisted some of the finest British actors around - Frost, Martin Freeman, Paddy Considine and Eddie Marsan - to play his buddies, though made sure to invite the original pub-crawl line-up to the premiere.

The director of the upcoming comedy film spoke to fans in a Q&A session run by Yahoo! on Friday (May 24)
Edgar Wright was speaking to fans in a Yahoo! Q&A session on Friday (May 24) about the upcoming comedy The World's End, the final edition of the much-loved Cornetto trilogy. The filmmaker revealed a few details on the summer release, including the news that there is a special, mystery cameo appearance has been lined-up for audiences.
Wright didn't go into much detail about the planned cameo, wanting to keep it a secret for the movie launch. He mentioned that although long-time collaborator and friend Jessica Hynes, who co-wrote and starred in Spaced with The World's End star Simon Pegg, will not be appearing in the final instalment of the Cornetto series, "there are other cameos. Including a man that has yet to appear in the films."
Alongside Pegg and Cornetto favourite Nick Frost, the film also stars long-time collaborators Martin Freeman (who has featured in all three films), Rafe Spall and Paddy Considine (of Hot Fuzz fame) as well as Eddie Marsan and former Bond girl Rosamund Pike. The movie follows a group of childhood friends who over the years have drifted apart but decide that after 20 years they are to recreate an 'epic pub crawl' in their hometown that bested them first time. As drinking commences though, the group notice a that things aren't quite right and soon things take a turn for the worse and get a little post-apocalyptic, resulting in the boys becoming Earth's only hope for survival.

The World's End sees Simon Pegg and pals return to their hometown for one epic pun crawl.
12 Pubs 12 Pints...
The first trailer for Edgar Wright's new movie The World's End has rolled out online - and it looks a riot. The final instalment in the Blood and Ice Cream Trilogy (Shaun of the Dead, Hot Fuzz) follows Gary King, a 40-year-old looking to reclaim the glory of his teenage years by vowing to complete the infamous Newton Haven pub crawl that he and his pals failed to finish 20 years ago. The problem lies in the fact that his friends are now middle class, comfortably living blue collar workers: why would they possibly agree?
Gary King is a 40-year-old still living in his teens and who can't wait to gather up his four friends from his teenage years to complete a pub crawl that they failed 20 years ago as kids in their hometown of Newton Haven. Unfortunately for him, his now corporate, higher-living friends are reluctant to agree though with much pressure from Gary, they eventually relent. However, things aren't exactly as they remember; the townsfolk are acting oddly and they are about to embark on a mission to rescue their childhood home from a threat of galactic proportions. But will they manage to complete their drinking quest and reach 'The World's End' pub as well as save the world from certain destruction?

Anna Kendrick's tweet about Hollywood hunk Ryan Gosling went viral this week and shows no signs of slowing up, having been re-tweeted over 7,000 times in less than 24 hours. The racy message has now been shared by Twitter users 20,713 times and has been favourited over 23,000 times.
In case you hadn't heard, the 27-year-old Pitch Perfect actress tweeted, "Ugh-NEVER going to a Ryan Gosling movie in the theatre again. Apparently sitting in the back row and masturbating is still considered 'inappropriate'." The tweet - posted at 10.45am on Monday - lit up the internet and received a slew of replies almost immediately. One user joked, "The hell it is! I do that at Gosling movies and I never get in trouble," while another suggested, "They should put this in the trailers for Gangster Squad to get people to watch. Best testimonial yet." A pretty good idea considering the movie has a dismal score of 34% on Rotten Tomatoes - the New York Times critic A.O Scott said, "Gangster Squad would have been more fun as an animated feature, with fanciful animals in the principal roles." Kendrick - who has over 600,000 followers on the micro-blogging site - has not posted since the tweet in question.
Despite her love for Gosling, she has been in a relationship with the Hot Fuzz director Edgar Wright since 2009.

Anna Kendrick lit up the internet on Monday (January 12, 2013), tweeting a deadpan and frankly hilarious message about her love for Hollywood hunk Ryan Gosling. The 27-year-old has starred alongside the likes of George Clooney, Joseph-Gordon Levitt and Robert Pattinson, though it appears Kendrick is longing for a starring role alongside everyone's favourite leading man, Gosling.
Kendrick tweeted, "Ugh-NEVER going to a Ryan Gosling movie in the theatre again. Apparently sitting in the back row and masturbating is still considered 'inappropriate'". Posted at 10.45am on Monday, the message has been re-tweeted 20,713 times and favourited over 17,000 times. Replies to the surprising tweet began flooding in almost immediately, with one user saying, "HAHAHAHA you're actually amazing omg. I wish you followed your fans cause I would DIE to be followed by you!" Another user - Emily Higgins - had an ingenious idea, saying, "They should put this in the trailers for Gangster Squad to get people to watch. Best testimonial yet." Not a bad idea, considering Gosling's new movie is garnering less than impressive reviews. Finally, Scuba Cat offered the less helpful, "Wow I love you."
Despite the tweeting, a date probably isn't on the cards, given Kendrick has been linked to the Hot Fuzz director Edgar Wright since 2009. Gosling also seems pretty infatuated with actress Eva Mendes too. Oh well.

So it's a shame the story and characters aren't stronger.
When intrepid young journalist Tintin (Bell) buys a model ship called The Unicorn, he's suddenly launched into a mystery. Pursued by the relentless treasure-hunting Sakharine (Craig) and quizzed by the blustery detectives Thompson and Thompson (Pegg and Frost), Tintin and his faithful dog Snowy try to unlock The Unicorn's secret. This involves tracking down Captain Haddock (Serkis) on the high seas, then teaming up for a breathless chase through a North African desert to a bustling market town.

In Toronto, Scott (Cera) is a 22-year-old geek in a rock band. His bandmates (Webber, Pill and Simmons), sister (Kendrick) and flatmate (Culkin) tease him for dating a teenager (Wong), but she's the band's biggest fan. Then he meets Ramona (Winstead), who is literally his dream girl, and to win her hand he has to defeat her seven evil exes in outlandish battles. These include an action movie star (Evans) and a top music promoter (Schwartzman). And one (Routh) is member of a band fronted by Scott's own evil ex (Larson).

The filmmakers have returned, and corrected many of their mistakes. Hot Fuzz is not only hilariously funny, but every intelligent detail makes sense this time around, and the action is that much more engaging for what takes place because of it.

In Edgar Wright's Shaun of the Dead, zombie-smashing antics serve as backdrop for the maturation of couch potato Shaun, who learns to embrace accountability and responsibility during his journey to save Liz and his dear ol' mum (Penelope Wilton) from the hordes of walking corpses infesting metropolitan London. With a cricket bat in hand and wise-cracking Ed at his side, Shaun embarks on his daring rescue mission with annoyed nonchalance, and his general disgust at having to do something, anything, besides sitting slack-jawed in front of the television is the comedic lifeblood of Wright's tongue-in-cheek parody of zombie movie conventions and big-budget Hollywood moviemaking. Shooting for gut-busting humor instead of stomach-churning terror, the film is awash in absurdity. Shaun's general catatonic demeanor causes him to miss the initial warning signs of London's apocalyptic state of affairs, and, once he finally does grasp the situation's severity, his reluctant heroism is tinged with irritability at being inconvenienced. When it comes time to destroy the monsters, Shaun does so with a blasé attitude that makes his gallantry less a stirring act of self-realization than a fart-infused, brain-squashing goof-off.
