Pegg and Frost also co-wrote the series with James Serafinowicz and Nat Saunders.
When Nick Frost and Simon Pegg team up, the results are usually very good.
Ricoh has partnered up with Alzheimer’s Research UK in an effort to help people better understand the diseases that cause dementia, while using 3D printing to visibly illustrate the effects of Alzheimer’s on the brain.This is all part of ‘Dementia Uncovered’, an awareness campaign that highlights the various diseases which can cause dementia and the way they affect sufferers.This campaign includes a number of short films highlighting the experiences of people who are living with different forms of dementia, as well as videos documenting the progress of the ongoing research for a cure.A previous film – which featured Simon Pegg – showed how Ricoh’s 3D printing tech can produce models to visibly show the effects of Alzheimer’s on the brain, as we mentioned at the outset.The idea is that doctors could use these kind of 3D-printed models to show patients exactly what’s going on with their brain, so they can better understand the disease (which shrinks the brain four times as fast as the normal rate of healthy ageing).And the broader hope is to challenge a number of misconceptions about dementia, and make it clear that while Alzheimer’s is the most common cause of dementia, there are other causes with far lower profiles (such as vascular dementia or dementia with Lewy Bodies).
In a world of glossy CG effects, there's something special about The Dark Crystal.And Netflix's new prequel series Age of Resistance recaptures the magic.The new Dark Crystal series stars a host of puppets created by Jim Henson's Creature Shop, just like the original film.A host of big names voice the fantasy creatures, from Taron Egerton and Anya Taylor-Joy to Helena Bonham Carter and Eddie Izzard, but the puppets are the true stars.From the adorable podlings to the creepy Skekses, the puppets have a chunky, physical realness that draws you in to the show's expanded world.The Dark Crystal: Age of Resistance release date is Aug. 30, with all 10 episodes streaming immediately on Netflix.
"The Boys" showrunner Eric Kripke talked to Business Insider about how the new Amazon superhero TV series landed Simon Pegg for a role."It shows how much he cares about genre fans that he's willing to do that."The show is based on a comic book of the same name, starring a character named Hughie who is drawn to look exactly like Pegg.Kripke said that Pegg has "always been very aware" of "The Boys," and as he aged out of the character, he would say in interviews that he'd be willing to play Hughie's dad.Visit Business Insider's homepage for more stories.It didn't take much to convince actor Simon Pegg to join Amazon's new superhero TV show, "The Boys," according to showrunner Eric Kripke.
Amazon’s new superhero show, The Boys, debuts this week and we’ve already seen and heard plenty about it.However, the studio just released a final trailer and it’s basically everything you could want from the show and then some.We get the whole set up of the plot – based on the comic Garth Ennis and Darick Robertson – introduce most of the characters, see how it’s all going to work out, and so much more.Basically, if this trailer doesn’t pique your interested, nothing will.While some of the other trailers really focused on kind of the scope of the show, this weaves that in and out with the more personal story.The story of a man who loses the woman he loves in a truly horrific fashion and finds a way to get revenge.
Children of the '80s, rejoice.The realm of Thra is returning to life as Netflix's The Dark Crystal: Age of Resistance unveiled its mystical wares at a Saturday Hall H panel at San Diego Comic-Con 2019.Netflix tweeted it was going full "behind the scenes" at SDCC, along with another look at the trailer.Age of Resistance is set 1,000 years before the action in the original 1982 Jim Henson and Frank Oz muppet fantasy movie.The prequel will touch on a lot of familiar characters, including the wise and grumpy Aughra, a fluffy Fizzgig, Landstriders, Skeksis and Mystics.Mark Hamill, who voiced Chucky in the 2019 remake, plays a scientist who uses the Dark Crystal for experiments.
Fans of Gelflings, Fizzgig and Skeksis will get a star-studded cast to voice the puppets in The Dark Crystal: Age of Resistance.Netflix on Wednesday announced additional actors joining the cast of the prequel series to the beloved 1982 Jim Henson film The Dark Crystal.It's hard to top the already star-packed voice cast that includes Mark Hamill, Eddie Izzard, Nathalie Emmanuel, Helena Bonham Carter, Natalie Dormer, Mark Strong, Simon Pegg, Toby Jones, Alicia Vikander, Harvey Fierstein and Andy Samberg.But the newly announced voice cast includes some pretty impressive actors including:The Dark Crystal: Age of Resistance's story is set before the events of the original film, and will still rely heavily on puppetry.The prequel series' official description offers some clue to what fans can expect.
If there's such a thing as a fantasy counterpart to A Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy, then that counterpart is Good Omens.Not the most daring comparison, admittedly—both beloved novels are intensely British at their core in a way that goes far beyond mere provenance—but their true similarity lies not in tone or sensibility or even biscuit-per-page ratio.After beginning as a radio series, Hitchhiker's Guide went on to find life as a TV series, a stage show, a live-action movie, videogames, comic books, and probably a few other things as well; yet, nothing could replicate the magic and joy of simply imagining the impossibilities that Douglas Adams' brain had cooked up.Neil Gaiman and Terry Pratchett's tale of a demon and angel working together to stave off Armageddon worked so well as a book that while its many fans wanted to see it as a movie or show, how such a show might do the book justice was difficult to imagine.The challenges were many, from the aggressively droll exposition to the celestial special effects that might be required.Over the years, adaptations were planned, then abandoned—but when Amazon announced that it would be working with Gaiman to create a limited series (at Pratchett's personal request, no less), Good Omens would finally get a chance to live up to its name.
Then I saw there was a Dark Crystal: Age of Resistance trailer out, and bang!My world changed, thanks to whoever worked with Netflix to make this happen.Before we go any further, look at this trailer and have your mind shattered.This series is coming to Netflix on August 30th, 2019.The original was a Jim Henson and Frank Oz masterpiece, done with muppet-era live action filming and a true 80’s attitude toward adventure and fantasy storytelling.The new version has more famous voice actors than you’ll be able to process.
Most fascinating is that the quality has been so high throughout the whole series, and the latest movie is one of the very best – actually one of the best actionrullar.Impossible mission has been the IMF's specialty, ever since the TV series in the 1960s.Despite this they have managed to keep the focus on a good act.the Core of the supporting roles consist of Ving Rhames and Simon Pegg.the Fiery Ilsa Faust (Rebecca Ferguson) is also back, her and Hunt's paths cross once again, unexpectedly, the same is true for the (more surprisingly) Hunt's love, Julia (Michelle Monaghan), who had one of the lead roles in the third film.Norwegian Kristoffer Ions make a competent role as a fanatical, terrorist, and Alec Baldwin will have to repeat their glansroll as CIA director, now on the same page as Hunt.
You boy, are you chewing?As I was saying, Slaughterhouse Rulez, in UK theaters now (no US or Australia release date yet), pits a motley crew of oddball teachers and misfit teens against the terror unleashed by a fracking operation.Which is fine by me -- you children have it soft these days, and the odd blood-soaked murder spree builds character.I've tried separating them but they still manage to make mischief, this time under their new Stolen Picture production company.Still, they all bring an engaging end-of-term larkiness, particularly Sheen.Among the lovable misfit schoolkids, Finn Cole and Asa Butterfield are top of the class.
Simon Pegg and Nick Frost are back to school us in supernatural horror comedy.The Shaun of the Dead stars face murderous beasts alongside Michael Sheen and a classroom-full of young actors in the trailer for new movie Slaughterhouse Rulez.Sheen plays the headmaster of Slaughterhouse, an elite boarding school thrown into disarray when fracking opens a sinister sinkhole nearby.For US readers, the name of the school is a pun on Charterhouse, the fancy school attended by various establishment types, generals, writers, broadcasters, one prime minister and most of Genesis.Pegg and Frost produce the movie, which is directed by Crispian Mills.Mills previously directed Pegg in quirky 2014 comedy A Fantastic Fear of Everything, but you might also recognise his name as the frontman of hippie-ish rock group Kula Shaker.
Your phone is not going to self-destruct in five seconds, but you can currently experience a load of new Mission: Impossible — Fallout content in PUBG Mobile.The portable version of PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds has added all-new items and challenges inspired by the new Tom Cruise movie.The latest free update for the game includes movie-themed challenges for its “Team Rush” and “Survival” modes, as well as modes played in first-person.Completing challenges will reward your account with “Agent IDs,” which are then used to unlock outfit items that look similar to what Cruise wears in the film.These include a special jacket, pants, and boots, but you have to collect quite a few IDs in order to unlock them.Upon loading up the game for the first time since the update, you will be greeted by the classic Mission: Impossible theme.
Remember when Tom Cruise could do no wrong—on top of the media world, as opposed to the top of Oprah Winfrey's couch?At his '80s best, a single Cruise wink-and-smile could melt the hearts of just about any watcher of shameless, crowd-pleasing films like Cocktail and Top Gun.Mission: Impossible - Fallout has the distilled feeling of a classic Cruise wink, stretched out over a feature-length film.It's been a while since a PG-13 movie has delivered so much something-for-everyone magic—and it's right up there with 2008's Iron Man.His portrayal of Ethan Hunt has largely been a stoic combination of running, fighting, driving, and staring down megalomaniacs, and those qualities served Cruise quite well in the last two M:I entries, Ghost Protocol and Rogue Nation.Hunt and his dark-ops IMF team must save the world, and a minutes-long dossier, handed off in a Belfast hideout, breaks the primary bad stuff down from the get-go: three nuclear weapons; a terrorist organization hell-bent on unleashing them; and a sympathetic researcher who wants to watch the world burn.
It’s a testament to the fact this sixth installment in the Mission: Impossible franchise is always tearing along at a sprint, blasting from one ridiculous action sequence to the next.Mission: Impossible — Fallout won’t be setting any standards for twisty spy thrillers, but it’s continuing to raise the bar on action, and it’s near non-stop fun along the way.Writer-director Christopher McQuarrie returns for Fallout after helming the previous Mission: Impossible installment, Rogue Nation.The folks who used to work with Lane are still out there, and they’re helping a new bad guy, code name John Lark, who is trying to acquire plutonium to use in nuclear bombs.Lark wants to kickstart a revolution against the current world order by blowing a lot of people up.There’s also the fact that, in an early mission when Ethan and returning buds Luther (Ving Rhames) and Benjie (Simon Pegg) have a chance to grab the plutonium, Ethan sacrifices it to save Luther’s life.
Those coddled actors, making millions of dollars in front of a green screen.And what about the ones who make their stunt people do all of the hard work?But you might feel a bit more respect after watching Tom Cruise in a new piece of 360-degree content distributed by Omnivirt promoting Mission: Impossible – Fallout.In a behind-the-scenes look at the latest action-packed iteration of the series, we visit one of the film’s remote location in New Zealand to tag along with Cruise for a helicopter ride that weaves through narrow canyons.The star notes that he was “inches from the sides of cliffs” tailing co-star Henry Cavill and that if the stunt were done in a studio, “We never would have gotten what we were able to get for an audience.”With supporting narration from director Christopher McQuarrie and stars of the film, we see the tremendous amount of preparation and guts needed to pull off the stunt.
At the recent premiere of Mission: Impossible – Fallout, Simon Pegg was asked a question about what his character does during his spare time.He had some fun answers.Pegg plays Benji, an IMF technician introduced during Mission: Impossible III, graduated to series regular in the later movies, and now he’s a full-fledged field agent helping out Tom Cruise’s Ethan Hunt survive his spy shenanigans.And what does he do in his spare time?“Benji studies hard,” Pegg told Cinema Blend.He goes home and he plays Minecraft.
When Tom Cruise jumping out of an aeroplane, getting hit by lightning, and saving Henry Cavill as they plummet towards Paris is maybe the least exciting thing in your movie, that movie is pretty special.Such is the case with Mission: Impossible - Fallout which is, in a word, incredible.Written and directed by Oscar winner Christopher McQuarrie (The Usual Suspects), this sixth entry into the popular Mission: Impossible franchise is a relentless piece of action filmmaking.Two minutes into the movie, the entire plot is laid out – and then, for the next two and a half hours, that plot unfolds at a breakneck pace.Barely a scene is wasted as things twist and turn with obstacles upon obstacles being furiously placed in front of Ethan Hunt (Cruise) and his IMF crew (once again including Simon Pegg and Ving Rhames).So while this instalment is a little lighter on the high tech gadgets most people associate with Mission: Impossible, McQuarrie evolves it by making the missions actually impossible.
What's the best and most delicious way to cool off?With an ice lolly, naturally.The problem is deciding which one to have, since there are so many and everyone has their own opinion on which one is best.If you'd rather go with the flow, you may want to pay attention to YouGov's latest poll which worked out which lollies are the most popular.As it turns out the clear winner is the Magnum, which definitely counts even though it's made from ice cream.28 per cent of respondents chose it as their favourite, thrashing the rest of the competition.
Simon Pegg is a purveyor of the subversive.He’s made you laugh at a zombie apocalypse in Shaun of the Dead, and in his latest film, Terminal, he gleefully chats about different ways to kill yourself with Suicide Squad actress Margot Robbie.Before he found himself exchanging suicide tips with Robbie, Pegg made a name for himself as a genre-bending comedy mainstay in the Three Flavours Cornetto trilogy.Even though his penchant for dark humor made him famous, Pegg is much more than horror jokes.He has a recurring role in four of the Mission: Impossible films, including this year’s Mission Impossible: Fallout, and is one of the few actors to appear in both Star Trek and Star Wars franchises.Digital Trends spoke to Pegg about Terminal, and also got his thoughts on a potential Hot Fuzz TV series, Quentin Tarantino’s upcoming Star Trek film, and when we can expect a new movie from the Cornetto crew.
As Solo: A Star Wars Story continues its rapid march to completion—a process director Ron Howard likes to keep fans abreast of—things have remained pretty quiet on the Star Wars front over the last couple of weeks, which is good; it lets everyone watch The Director and the Jedi in peace.And that's it," he continued.Denny’s Is the Hangout For Star Wars' Newest CharactersProbability of Accuracy: Amazingly, kind of true; the diner chain really did reveal new Solo characters.The Real Deal: As anyone with a Moons Over My Hammy habit already knows, Denny’s has partnered with Lucasfilm to promote Solo: A Star Wars Story (and also No Kid Hungry, an anti-child hunger charity the restaurant chain supports).Along with a Solo-themed menu, the partnership includes exclusive limited edition trading cards—which introduced all-new characters from the movie, one of whom is actually called Therm Scissorpunch—and a pretty great little TV ad for the whole thing.
As if millions of Rey theorists suddenly cried out in terror... and were suddenly silenced.Well, actually, they’re probably about to start shrieking about clones and Kenobis and whatnot again, because actor Simon Pegg just reignited the debate around Rey’s parentage.Speaking on the latest episode of the podcast Happy Sad Confused about the future of the Star Trek movies, his role in Ready Player One, and more, Pegg revealed that J.J. Abrams had much bigger plans for the reveal of Rey’s heritage—which were then undone by Star Wars: The Last Jedi.Given that Abrams is back in the director’s chair for Episode IX, it’s an intriguing anecdote from Pegg:I know what J.J. kind of intended or at least was being chucked around.I think that’s kind of been undone slightly by the last one.
The nostalgia is palpable in what we’ve seen so far of Steven Spielberg’s Ready Player One, a big-screen adaptation of Ernest Cline’s 2011 novel about a man who gets caught up in a quest to win control of a massive, virtual universe in the year 2044.Directed by Spielberg from a script by Cline and Zak Penn (The Avengers), Ready Player One casts actor Tye Sheridan (Mud, X-Men: Apocalypse) as Wade Watts, a man whose encyclopedic knowledge of ’80s movies, music, and games pits him against a powerful corporation in a race to find the key to a virtual universe known as OASIS.The film co-stars Olivia Cooke, Ben Mendelsohn, T. J. Miller, Simon Pegg, and Mark Rylance.With Ready Player One hitting theaters March 29, here’s everything we know about the movie so far.If you have yet to read the book and want to go in fresh, proceed at your own peril!As part of a sweepstakes tied to Ready Player One, Warner Bros. Pictures released some new footage from the film in a video promoting the contest.
