7 Surprising Actors Who Started in Stand-Up

Ron Perlman Metacafe

After struggling as a stand-up — maybe the only stage medium where the audience is free to yell terrible things at you if you're no good, they're inebriated or if they just feel like it — the world of trailers and catered meals that is film acting must seem like a cakewalk in comparison. So it's no surprise that some great stand-ups, including Robin Williams, Lily Tomlin and Jamie Foxx, have gone on to become great actors as well. Get More »

Infographic: Familiar Faces of the Cornetto Trilogy

The World's End Universal

Have you noticed that a lot of the same actors have appeared in the Edgar Wright films that make up the Cornetto Trilogy (or, more unofficially, the Blood and Ice Cream Trilogy): "Shaun of the Dead" (2004), "Hot Fuzz" (2007) and "The World's End" (2013)? And we don't just mean those lovable scamps Simon Pegg and Nick Frost. Get More »

'The Butler' Did It... Again

Lee Daniels' The Butler The Weinstein Company

Stop us if you've heard this one before, but according to, "Lee Daniels' The Butler" won the box office for the second weekend in a row, as the drama about what goes on behind closed doors at the White House brought in an estimated $17 million.

That was enough to hold off a trio of newcomers, including "The Mortal Instruments" (third place with $9.3 million), "The World's End" (fourth place with $8.9 million) and "You're Next" (seventh place with $7 million).

The good news for all three of those films is that next week's crop of new releases looks even weaker. The bad news? There's a good chance "The Butler" might just do it again.

Weekly Movie Math: Chug, Chug, Chug

The World's End Universal

Your mother always told you math would be important, you just didn't expect it to come in handy in quite this way. See, equations are going to help you out when it comes to deciding what to see at the multiplex this weekend.

We'll admit something that your mom probably wouldn't be quite as into: this week's Movie Math is probably our drunkest yet. Between "Drinking Buddies" and "The World's End," the brews they are a-flowin'. And we're not ashamed to admit that we may require a little liquid courage to make it through "You're Next," which looks like it'll haunt our dreams.

Whether you're sipping to cope or for some other reason, without further ado: This week's Movie Math. Get More »

Questions and Answers With Simon Pegg and Nick Frost

Getty Images Getty Images

They've battled through the zombie apocalypse, they've freed a small British hamlet from the clutches of evil cult, and now Simon Pegg and Nick Frost are teaming up for the ultimate challenge: The Golden Mile.

"The World's End," opening Aug. 23, is the final chapter of the "Cornetto Trilogy," this millennium's most beloved and least formal comedy triptych. Each installment follows Britain’s schlubbiest duo as they take on new characters and contend with their faded adolescence in one way or another. "Shaun of the Dead" poked loving fun at zombie movies and "Hot Fuzz" applied the same treatment to the spectacular mayhem of Michael Bay-style actioners, "The World’s End" is by contrast a somewhat sobering series capper, a bittersweet comedy that very much takes place in the real world until, well, it doesn't.

The story of an alcoholic man-child who yearns to relive his glorious '80s high school days, "The World's End" begins with Gary (Pegg) desperately trying to coerce the old gang back to their hometown to complete some unfinished business: An epic pub crawl they failed to finish the first time around. Unfortunately for Gary, the rest of his pals, including Andy (Nick Frost), have moved on with their lives. Eventually, the crew gives in, and a night that first seems like it's about the end of a friendship soon becomes about the end of the world.

We sat down with Nick Frost and Simon Pegg in New York to discuss their new film, how alcoholism is like an alien invasion and why they owe the world to Jackie Chan. Get More »

Have you ever wondered how to make an Orange Whip, the drink of choice for John Candy and his highway patrolmen pals in "The Blues Brothers"?

In honor of the bar crawl featured in "The World's End," we've tracked down the recipes of some of the most iconic movie drinks and put them on display in handy-dandy how-to infographic form. Check out our shaken and stirred menu below, courtesy of our head bartender Old Red Jalopy.

Play Around With This Interactive Screenplay From 'Shaun of the Dead'


It's rare that audiences ever get a chance to read a movie's screenplay for free, let alone one that's filled with behind-the-scenes secrets, original storyboards, and other little tidbits from the set. But thanks to the guys at Focus Features, we've got our hands on some pretty awesome stuff from the creators of 2004's "Shaun of the Dead".

Simon Pegg, Nick Frost, director Edgar Wright and producer Nira Park — the masterminds behind "Shaun of the Dead" and "Hot Fuzz" — have teamed up once again for this summer's "The World's End", which follows a group of friends who go on a pub crawl amidst an alien invasion. (Naturally.) The film is the third and final installment of the "Three Flavours Cornetto Trilogy" (which also includes "Shaun of the Dead" and "Hot Fuzz", of course). Get More »

'The World's End,' But With the Credits From 'Cheers'

"The World's End," the newest Edgar Wright/Simon Pegg creation about a group of friends who attempt to one-up their epic bar crawl from 20 years earlier and instead become mankind's final hope against an alien invasion (everyone nods), comes out in three weeks.

We know what you're thinking: "Time's a-wasting. Where the hell is this movie's hilariously-edited mashup with the opening credits from 'Cheers' on Youtube from the ever-reliable Todd Spence? It would be amazing! You know it, I know it, the rest of the world knows it." Get More »
