Comments Off on UK – The World’s End Signing
EDGAR WRIGHT appears to sign free posters for THE WORLD’S END at the Forbidden Planet London Megastore on Thursday 4 July 2013 from 5:00 – 5:30 pm!
Twenty years after attempting an epic pub crawl, five childhood friends reunite when one of them becomes hellbent on trying the drinking marathon again. They are convinced to stage an encore by Gary King (Simon Pegg), a forty-year-old man trapped at the cigarette end of his teens, who drags his reluctant pals to their hometown and once again attempts to reach the fabled pub – The World’s End. As they attempt to reconcile the past and present, they realise the real struggle is for the future, not just theirs but humankind’s. Reaching The World’s End is the least of their worries.
Edgar Wright is a genre-smashing creator, a film and television director and writer. He worked with Simon Pegg, Nira Park and Nick Frost on the films Shaun of the Dead and Hot Fuzz, the TV series Spaced, the upcoming 2013 film The World’s End, and he directed the film Scott Pilgrim vs. the World. He co-wrote Steven Spielberg’s The Adventures of Tintin with Joe Cornish and Steven Moffat. He will also direct a film adaptation of the Marvel Comics superhero Ant-Man.

Pegg’s memoir is a who’s-who of pop culture references, film history, and witty anecdotes about being a kid in the 70s and proves that Pegg is, indeed, a super geek of the highest order.

Comments Off on UK – Attack the Block Signing
NICK FROST & JOE CORNISH promote their film Attack The Block at the Forbidden Planet Megastore, 179 Shaftesbury Avenue, London, WC2H 8JR, on Thursday 12th May from 5:20 – 6pm.
Attack the Block – an urban gang versus a wave of invading aliens. Trainee nurse Sam is saved from a street gang when they’re distracted by a meteorite – and then attacked by an undersized alien. The gang chase the creature and kill it, dragging its ghoulish carcass to the top of a nearby tower block.
While police hunt for the gang, a second wave of meteors falls. The gang grabs weapons, mounts bikes and sets out to defend their turf. But this time, the creatures are bigger. Savage, shadowy and bestial, nothing will stand in their way. The estate is about to become a battleground. And the bunch of no-hope kids who just attacked Sam are about to become her, and the block’s, only hope.
Best known for the role of Mike Watt in Spaced, Nick Frost has also worked with Simon Pegg and Edgar Wright in Shaun of the Dead, Hot Fuzz and Paul.
Joe Cornish, half of the Adam and Joe Show, is a comedian who’s directorial work has included the pilots of Modern Toss and Blunder. Attack the Block is his film debut.

SIMON PEGG signs his autobiography NERD DO WELL at the Forbidden Planet Megastore, 179 Shaftesbury Avenue, London, WC2H 8JR, on Saturday 23rd October from 4 – 5pm.
Simon Pegg is an actor, comedian, screenwriter, producer and author. Best known for his roles in Shaun of the Dead and Hot Fuzz, he also plays Scotty in the Star Trek franchise. Simon lives in London with his wife and daughter. This is his first book.
Zombies in North London, death cults in the West Country, the engineering deck of the Enterprise: Simon Pegg has been ploughing some bizarre furrows in recent times. Having blasted onto the small screens with his now legendary sitcom “Spaced”, his rise to nation’s favourite son status has been mercurial, meteoric, megatronnic, but mostly just plain great. From his childhood (and subsequently adult) obsession with Star Wars, his enduring friendship with Nick Frost, and his forays into stand-up which began with his regular Monday morning slot in front of his 12-year-old classmates, this is a joyous tale of a homegrown superstar and a local boy made good.
Forbidden Planet is the largest store of its kind in the world. Some of the biggest names in Sci-Fi, Fantasy, Comics and Cult Entertainment have come to our London Megastore for signing events, including: Jonathan Ross, Kevin Smith, Sam Raimi, Guillermo del Toro, Terry Gilliam, Christopher Lee, Andy Serkis, William Gibson, Neil Gaiman, Terry Pratchett and Stephen King.
