Insane trailer for Simon Pegg's Fantastic Fear of Everything

Apr. 6, 2012by: Paul Shirey

Simon Pegg, ever the reliable comedic relief to just about any movie, is back at it again, this time with A FANTASTIC FEAR OF EVERYTHING, an insane-looking British film that fits squarely in the, er, Pegg, of his repertoire. 

Drop some acid and watch the trailer:

This looks wicked to me.  I'm not even British, but that word comes to mind after watching this.  Pegg consistently delivers, even if the film doesn't (i.e. PAUL).  He's just a blast to watch, plain and simple. 

Here's the synopsis for this crazy-ass flick:

Jack (Simon Pegg) is a children’s author turned crime novelist whose detailed research into the lives of Victorian serial killers has turned him into a paranoid wreck, persecuted by the irrational fear of being murdered. When Jack is thrown a life-line by his long-suffering agent and a mysterious Hollywood executive takes a sudden and inexplicable interest in his script, what should be his ‘big break’ rapidly turns into his ‘big breakdown’, as Jack is forced to confront his worst demons; among them his love life, his laundry and the origin of all fear.

A FANTASTIC FEAR OF EVERYTHING will be released in the UK on June 8th, but does not have a US release just yet.  Stay tuned for that and cheers to our Brit readers who will get to catch it before us.  Ye bastards!

Extra Tidbit: Simon Pegg was kind of awesome as the voice of Buck in Ice Age: Dawn of the Dinosaurs. Okay, he's kind of awesome in most things, but still...

Might be cool...

... but it could also be a painfully pretentious bit of trite. Like Eagle Vs. Shark. Or The Science of Sleep. I'd rather kill myself then sit through those again.

why do filmmakers always throw in the asthma inhaler? Surprised Pegg went along with the cliche.

Why so much hate with Paul?

I don't understand why the hate for Paul. I thought it was really funny, cute, and well-acted. JoBlo even scored it an 8/10

This looks great but..

Why do people hate on Paul so much? I thought that was hilarious and definitely the perfect movie for sci-fi nerds/buffs.
