Police constable, Nicholas Angel (Pegg) is good at his job, so good in fact, he makes everyone else look bad. As a result, his superiors at the Met have decided to sweep him under the carpet. So it is that London's top cop finds himself in the sleepy West Country village of Sandford. With garden fetes and neighborhood watch meetings replacing the action of the city, Angel struggles to adapt to his situation and finds himself partnered with Danny Butterman (Frost), an oafish but well meaning young Constable, who dreams of being Mel Gibson. Just as all seems lost, a series of grisly accidents motivates Angel into action. Convinced of foul play, Angel realises that Sandford may not be as idyllic as it seems.
You can bring two of Simon Pegg and Nick Frost's early comedies home in high definition this September. Shaun of the Dead and Hot Fuzz will both be released on Blu-ray on September 22. We have no cover art for either release as of yet, but each title will be priced at $29.98 SRP and you can take a look at the special features below. The films star Simon Pegg and Nick Frost.
Get ready for a gut-busting, bone-mashing good time in the hilarious horror comedy, Shaun of the Dead. There comes a day in every man's life when he has to get off the couch...and kill some zombies. When flesh-eating zombies are on the hunt for a bite to eat, it's up to slacker Shaun (Simon Pegg) and his best pal Ed to save their friends and family from becoming the next entree. Satisfy your bloodthirsty appetite with the movie that masters of horror and film critics alike are hailing as the funniest and scariest movie of the year. Novelist Stephen King gushes "it's a 10 on the fun meter and destined to be a cult classic" and Devin Gordon at Newsweek calls Shaun of the Dead "a bloody hoot!" It's a screamingly funny outrageous Zomedy that will have you dying with laughter.Read More

Universal is turning up the heat in August...
A full-throttle action comedy that packs as many laughs as it does punches, Hot Fuzz comes to DVD and HD DVD Combo Disc on July 31, 2007 from Universal Studios Home Entertainment. From Rogue Pictures and Working Title Films, and created by the same off-the-wall team that produced the wildly successful zombie laugh-fest Shaun of the Dead, Hot Fuzz puts a wickedly witty spin on action films. An exciting and hilarious homage to buddy cop movies, Hot Fuzz reteams Shaun of the Dead stars Simon Pegg (Mission: Impossible 3) and Nick Frost alongside a stellar acting ensemble that includes Oscar winner Jim Broadbent (Bridget Jones's Diary), Timothy Dalton (The Living Daylights), Martin Freeman (The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy), Paul Freeman (Raiders Of The Lost Ark), Bill Nighy Pirates of Caribbean: Dead Man's Chest), and Billie Whitelaw (The Omen). Director Edgar Wright (Shaun of the Dead) co-wrote with Pegg the fast-paced, uproarious script that doesn't hold back on the thrills or chuckles. This must-own DVD will satisfy action buffs and comedy fans alike with its thrilling car chases, spectacular shoot-outs and side-splitting irreverence, plus a barrage of never-before-seen bonus features. Preorder close is July 3, 2007. The DVD is priced at $29.98 S.R.P and the HD DVD Combo Disc is priced at $39.98 S.R.P.Read More

Edgar Wright is becoming one of those British comedy writer/directors who's being extremely sought after. His quirky zombie comedy, Shaun of the Dead, became an instant classic. At only 33 years old, Edgar is on his way to having a very long and steady career.
His new comedy, Hot Fuzz, reteams his Shaun buddies, Simon Pegg and Nick Frost, with Simon co-writing. The flick takes the cop dramas to a whole new level.Read More
Well, you take the three same people and make it even funnier. Edgar Wright, Simon Pegg and Nick Frost teamed up once again for the cop comedy, Hot Fuzz. Edgar and Simon wrote the script together, with Edgar directing.
Simon plays Nicholas Angel, one of London's best cops, but something his fellow station cops don't like. So they reassign him to the countryside; that's when he partners up with Danny Butterman, one of Sandford's laziest cops. The two have completely different visions for how things are run and should be run.Read More
According to the head of the American Cinematheque, the Hot Fuzztival was the first show to ever sell out in less than an hour. I'd like to replay the Q&A that proceeded the film, but as luck would have it I wasn't able to stay for Edgar and Co.'s post show follow-up. Those seats inside the Aero Theater hurt ass; it caused me to squirm the blood fissure. I could hardly sit there for the duration of Hot Fuzz's behemoth running time. And the lady-friend accompanying me on this Saturday diversion recently got hit in the face by a Toyota Tacoma while tooling around on her Vespa Scooter. She was in an immense amount of pain by the time closing credits slam-cracked down upon the audience. It was a tiny miracle that she made it through the screening at all. Must have been a slim bit of destiny, though, for if we hadn't gotten up to leave the exact moment things were through projecting light, we never would have seen Timothy Dalton preening like Lord Fauntleroy in some dirty Santa Monica back alley. He was waiting at the theater exit, and gave a gleefully evil wave as we passed by. The guy plays a great villain in Fuzz, and it was surreal to see him standing there, jaw intact. It was a moment just for us. The injured and bruised.
Call the hookers and make some plans. You should definitely check Hot Fuzz out. Hot Fuzz: This is what it's like to truly "see a movie." When you leave the theater, you actually feel like you experienced something. A moment locked in time and space. It's not made of that squirmy indifference that usually sticks to most action comedies. It's a special dish hand crafted with love and attention to the little details. It's not about box office, its actually trying to entertain you. That can be a rare thing these days.Read More
