Yesterday, the stars aligned and gave us a special treat. Peter Jackson, a person of special honor in my head because of his Tolkien movies, released a video he did with Edgar Wright, Nick Frost, and Simon Pegg who make up one of my favorite television and film teams that gave us Spaced, Shaun of the Dead, and Hot Fuzz. From the sounds of it, Jackson truly enjoyed The World’s End, which is the last in the “Blood and Cornetto” Trilogy, so named because in the first two films (SotD and Hot Fuzz) it included both things. (A cornetto, for those who don’t know, is a pre-packaged ice cream cone). It’s a true sci-fi flick, but as you watch the video that includes a trailer for the film at the end, they manage to make it just a bit more than that.

I cannot think of a better endorsement, and am truly glad to see the amount of support from one super director to another super team! Enjoy!
