One big summer movie had a shot in it directed by Edgar Wright

05.10.2013

Edgar Wright is one of my favorite people of all time. I even put him ahead of certain family members. From his early short film DEAD RIGHT to his upcoming THE WORLD'S END, everything the guy has done has been absolutely fantastic and (this may sound a little weird) has had a lot of heart. Wright is as big of a geek as most of us (if not bigger) and his passion for different genres and just plain love for comics, video games, etc. shows in his films.

So what film did Edgar Wright direct one shot in? STAR TREK INTO DARKNESS, of course.

We don't know which shot he directed (and it's not like when you watch the movie you'll be able to go, "Oh yeah, that's definitely the shot Edgar Wright did) but I'd say there's a 99.99999% chance the shot involved his buddy Simon Pegg. In the grand scheme of things will Wright's contribution to STAR TREK INTO DARKNESS make it better? Of course not but it's still pretty cool and a nice little bit of movie trivia you can use to impress your friends while your waiting in line next week to see the film.

STAR TREK INTO DARKNESS is in IMAX theaters May 15th and everywhere else on May 16th, while Edgar Wright's THE WORLD'S END drunkenly crawls into theaters on August 23rd.

Extra Tidbit: Rory McCann who plays Michael Anderson (the tall guy that only says "Yarp") in HOT FUZZ can be currently seen on HBO's Game of Thrones...as Sandor "The Hound" Clegane. Just figured that out the other day and it blew my mind a little.

I love happenstance artistic crossover. Like the fact that Spielberg suggested the overhead tracking shot at the end of Taxi Driver while visiting the set. Intentional crossover like Grindhouse or Four Rooms has fared worse.

Maybe it was the bit with Scotty racing across the room ala "Run, Fat Boy, Run". Or Scotty in the bar.

Shaun of the dead is not only my favorite horror comedy, but one of my favorite movies of all time. Hot Fuzz is still pretty underrated, and it was awesome. (extra tidbit) Rory McCann was also in a movie called The Crew in 08 that was pretty good, gotta love british heist movies.

Shaun of the Dead was awesome (never laughed so uncontrollably in a cinema before - I'm usually one of those d*cks that want everyone to be quiet). Hot Fuzz was fun...Scott Pilgrim was a blast and I couldn't get Mathew Patel's song out of my head for a few days (saw it on DVD and was dissapointed it didn't do well at the box office). Hopefully Ant Man will be on par with these movies too.

Didn't Spielberg supposedly direct a shot in Star Wars Episode III? Quentin Tarantino directed a scene in Sin City, and even got a Special Guest Director credit, I think.

Tarantino directed the scene in Sin City when Dwight was driving with Del Toro's head in the car. Funny scene.

I think Spielberg was the unofficial 'second unit director' on Episode III, helping stage some of the big battle sequences (which were, admittedly, about ten times more cinematic and effective than most of the other two prequels.)

Its cool when you hear about how movies were getting made in the 70s with Spielberg, Lucas, Scorsese all friends and helping each other out here and there. Thanks to Patton Oswalt, I just found out Brian DePalma wrote the final draft of the opening scrawl for 'A

Its pretty cool how this new batch of directors seems to have a similar camaraderie between them. Abrams, Whedon, Wright, Brad Bird, etc.

I've met him...

three times. He's dreamy.

(He's a regular at the New Beverly Cinema. Can't wait to see the premiere of AT WORLD'S END there.)

Cool piece of trivia

I'm also an Edgar Wright fan, starting when I saw SHAWN OF THE DEAD. I thought SCOTT PILGRIM deserved much better box office than it ended up getting.
