Simon Pegg & Edgar Wright are self confessed massive movie geeks... and their previous two films Shaun of the Dead & Hot Fuzz were both love letters to some of their favourite genres... Zombie Horror, Buddy Cop Action, etc with their trademark comedy twist.
But, i can't quite see what direction this new movie is going in.... A pub crawl where they save the World !!!
So... is it a road movie? ....and where does the "saving the World" come in to it? - They've already done the whole action guns thing (and people on a pub crawl unlikely to have guns anyway)... What other ways are there of saving the World, and what genre's could be covered by this scenario... I think "Super Hero" can surely be ruled out, as the idea of a Pub Crawl doesn't lend itself to a super hero story (plus Edgar just announced he's making the Marvel comics Ant -Man movie) ....
Also... Remember this is the GREEN movie in the the Cornetto Trilogy... could that hold a clue?
Anybody have any thoughts?
