Nuts & Bolts – News for Pop Culture Fiends

Here’s a roundup of some interesting things happening in the world of Pop Culture today:

 

The World’s End

 

Edgar Wright has gotten the greenlight to the film – The World’s end, which will roundout in his trilogy of comedies with Simon Pegg and Nick Frost. For those that don’t know, this trilogy does have it’s own name and neat back story. Curious? Well…

Each film in the trilogy is connected to a Cornetto ice cream flavour – both of the films released to date feature scenes in which one of the main characters purchases a Cornetto of the appropriate flavour. Shaun of the Dead features a red strawberry flavoured Cornetto, which signifies the film’s bloody and gory elements, Hot Fuzz includes the blue original Cornetto, to signify the police element to the film and The World’s End will feature the green mint choc-chip flavour, to signify science fiction.The use of the three flavours/colours of Cornetto is a reference to Krzysztof Kieślowski’s Three Colours film trilogy.

 

About The World’s End

 

20 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 mate Gary King, a 40-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 realize the real struggle is for the future, not just theirs but humankind’s. Reaching The World’s End is the least of their worries (Source: /film).

An Oversimplification of Her Beauty

 

A fresh and original take on young love in the big city, Terence Nance’s playfully personal narrative pushes the cinematic envelope.

 

I am very eager to see this film. It mixes live footage and interweaves beautiful animations and drawings that add to the atmosphere of the film. (Source: Youtube.com)

Beasts of the Southern Wild

 

I talked about this film before, and I am excited that it will show in my area 7/27/12. Are you going? Yeah, everyone is talking about Batman, but I am more excited for this movie.

 

 

The movie is playing in select theaters and as each weeks passes, it’s making it into more. Visit the website and find out if you can catch in your city.

I Know That Voice

 

It’s about time that Voice Actors get their Due! Finally!

 

 

I Know that Voice is a documentary on the wonderful and shadowed world of “Voice Over & Voice Acting.” This is a must see documentary for anyone that wants to know what goes on behind the scenes in your favorite cartoons, video games, and anything else to do with voice acting. This documentary is directed by Lawrence Shapiro and features an all-star cast of voice talent including Billy West (Ren, Frye, Zach Brannigan, etc.), Tara Strong (Bubbles, Twilight Sparkle, etc.), June Foray (Rocky, Bullwinkle, Granny & Witch Hazel [Looney Tunes]), Jess Harnell (Captain Hero) and John Di Maggio (Bender, Jake The Dog). It’s such a shame we will have to wait for this gem to drop in 2013 (Source: Youtube.com).
