'Sick Note' is a new British comedy coming this Autumn.
Lindsay Lohan is set to return to the small screen with an appearance in the forthcoming British comedy 'Sick Note', which will also star Rupert Grint and Nick Frost. The American actress has had few acting jobs in recent years, so is this new UK show a solid return to form?

The 30-year-old star stars in at least two episodes of the second series of 'Sick Note' next year, which will air its first series on Sky in the Autumn. Lindsay plays a character called Katerina West in the program - the daughter of Rupert Grint's character's boss Daniel Glass.

Captain Pugwash is coming to the big screen, to be played by 'Hot Fuzz' star Nick Frost.
British actor Nick Frost is to play children’s television character Captain Pugwash in a new live-action movie, the first full-length feature film to have been spawned from the small-screen cartoon series.
A release date hasn’t yet been announced for the project, and further casting news is still set to come, but comedian Frost will be portraying the lovable cowardly pirate in a live-action film that will simply be titled Pugwash. Production will commence on the film in 2018, and it is also mooted to star Lock, Stock & Two Smoking Barrels star Jason Flemyng.

Despite his business acumen and ability to land important deals, one businessman named Dan Trunkman (Vince Vaughn) still managed to get a pay cut from his uncaring boss - who may be hot but she's still widely hated throughout the company. A year later, he's set up his very own business with only two employees: one man who's old enough to have retired a decade ago (Tom Wilkinson), and a boy who's barely out of college (if he ever managed to get that far) hilariously named Mike Pancake (Dave Franco). Even in spite of the unsual trio, they still manage to secure a lucrative deal with a top company and make way for a trip to Germany to shake on it. However, another company threatens to disrupt everything - Dan's former employers. In order to be noticed over his busty blonde former boss, he has to pull out all the stops. And we mean all of them.

The holy trinity that is Wright, Pegg and Frost will be making more films. That can only be a good thing.
Forget Hector and the Search For Happiness. That was a blip in the otherwise brilliant career of Simon Pegg. And anyway, he’s at his best when working with Edgar Wright – good news, then, that the pair has confirmed a brand new project together.
“Edgar and I were having a conversation the other day about it, and it has a title and everything. We're kind of into a creative cycle nowm” Pegg said when speaking to Edith Bowman on BBC 6 Music, "We've all got different things [going] on and we know we have to get those things done. The coming-together thing is without question on the table and will happen when we can do it."

After leaving Ant-man, Wright is to direct Baby Driver, a film that has been in the pipeline for several years already.
After a storm of scepticism surrounding Edgar Wright’s decision to walk away from the future Marvel blockbuster Ant Man, the British director has instead turned his hand to a new project which promises to put a fresh spin on the action-packed crime film. Having shot to directorial superstardom after the incredibly successful ‘Cornetto Trilogy’, his collaboration with long-time friends Simon Pegg and Nick Frost which included the crowd-pleasers Shaun Of The Dead, Hot Fuzz and World’s End, Wright has found himself as one of Hollywood’s most in-demand directors. Moreover, he has proved that he is unafraid to walk away from a project if he feels strongly perturbed by the direction it is being aimed toward by studio executives.
Wright left Ant Man after a prolonged dispute over the script
With Wright freed from Ant Man after script disputes, Baby Driver is reportedly being fast-tracked towards production, with the screenplay already being written following the Wright’s 2010 hit Scott Pilgrim Vs The World. Details on the film remain scarce, but a small amount of speculation has been addressed by the director in a series of interviews. As intrigued fans have pointed out, Baby Driver is also the name of a track from the iconic Simon and Garfunkle album Bridge Over Troubled Water. In an interview conducted in 2011, Wright conformed he had written a script that borders on being a musical, admitting that it would in many ways act as a departure for the director in terms of style.

Eggs is a young boy living in the dairy loving, wealthy town of Cheesbridge. He was adopted as a baby and is a perfectly ordinary boy - apart from the fact that he was brought up in a sewer by an unusual group of foster parents. The Boxtrolls are underground creatures feared throughout the town as sinister and dangerous monsters, but in truth they are remarkably kind and so shy that they spend most of their time hiding in the boxes they wear as shells and venturing out at night so that they don't bump into the Cheesebridge residents. All they wish to do is collect discarded rubbish and turn it into incredible machines. Unfortunately, despite their harmlessness, a vicious exterminator named Archibald Snatcher is after their heads when the town's council insists on their removal. Eggs must help save his family, but first he's got to start behaving like a regular boy.

The fun-filled trailer gives us a good look at those 'Boxtrolls'.
The trailer for the latest film to come from Laika, Phil Knight's Hillsboro animation studio, has hit the web. ‘Boxtrolls’ tells the story of a group of goblins that live underground, feeding off grubs and various bugs, and using boxes to appear greater than the sum of their parts.
He's not a boxtroll, but he sort of is, is Eggs
The trailer gives us a further look at the beautifully crafted, almost dickensian world that the talented guys at Laika have created. The fantastical setting is intriguing as soon as we see the cobbled roof tiles, and becomes even riper for exploring the further we go down, even below the street, where those adorable (yet thoroughly disgusting) Boxtrolls.

Classics and stinkers combine to entertain YOU on Feb 14.
Valentines Day is one of the biggest days in the film calendar, proving that people would rather sit in a dark room, facing forward and taking in a story than actually spending real time together. Luckily, there are some great films to not spend the evening with your other half… with. Then again, there are some rubbish ones too.
Are you sure it isn't good?

Gal Gadot will play Wonder Woman opposite Affleck and Cavill, while Rita Ora heads for the 50 Shades set. We also hear about Paul Walker's posthumous Hours and are teased with new Spider-man and BoxTrolls trailers...
The big story this week is that Wonder Woman will make her long-awaited big-screen debut in the upcoming Batman vs Superman movie starring Ben Affleck and Henry Cavill. Israeli actress Gal Gadot has nabbed the key role; she's best known as Gisele in the last three Fast & Furious movies. 'Batman vs. Superman' has found its Wonder Woman, but who is Gal Gadot?
It was also announced that Rita Ora has joined the cast of Fifty Shades of Grey, which is currently filming in Vancouver with Dakota Johnson and Jamie Dornan in the lead roles, and Sam Taylor-Wood directing. Others joining the cast include Marcia Gay Harden and Jennifer Ehle. We take a closer look at the appointment here.
'Cuban Fury' should please Valentines' Day couples in 2014.
The first trailer for Nick Frost's dancefloor comedy Cuban Fury has rolled out online and should please fans of the actor's previous efforts, particularly his collaborations with Simon Pegg, Shaun of the Dead, Hot Fuzz and most recently, The World's End.
Nick Frost salsa dancing in 'Cuban Fury'
Having fallen head over heels for his American Boss, played by Rashida Jones, Frost's character Bruce Garrett decides to quit coasting through life and reignite his passion for salsa dancing.
For once, this is a deal, in which pretty much everybody wins.
Like something? Buy it. That’s ITV’s new mantra based on the fact that they bought something. Anyway, the channel have snapped up the Shaun of the Dead production company Big Talk for a cool £12.5m. Nice business.
It would be nice to tell you that Simon Pegg and Nick Frost built it from the ground, owned the whole thing and pocketed the lion’s share of that £12,5m, but they were only shareholders, and merely stand to gain a portion of that sum, as do BBC worldwide, who owned 25% of it.
It’s not all doom and gloom for Pegg and Frost, in fact there’s no doom or gloom whatsoever. Their latest film, The World’s End has been a hit with the critics and the pair are now at the top of the comedy ladder, so to speak. Big Talk was responsible for Friday Night Dinner, Rev and Him & Her, and will continue to put those shows out.

Who would have thought “Cornetto” as a response to “Want anything from the shop” would herald one of the most popular comedy trilogies in British history. The last film in the trio – The World’s End – sees five buddies reunite to tackle a pub crawl, only to find out that 12 pints is the least of their problems.
Look at Pegg in his electric blue suit - a proud man

The film centres on five friends, reunited after several years apart, who must prevent the end of the world. Following in the same fashion a Shaun of the Dead, a considerably amount of these unlikely heroes time is spend in the pub.
What are the reviewers saying about the last in this comedy trilogy?
Simon Pegg, Nick Frost and Edgar Write finish up their “Cornetto Trilogy” with World’s End – five childhood friends reunite 20 years on to attempt an epic pub crawl, but soon find out the pub crawl is the least of their worries. Following the success of Shaun of the Dead and Hot Fuzz, has World’s End managed to capture the spirit that made its predecessors fly?

The early indications are that it very much has, with the reviewers that handed their thoughts in just after the embargo finding it an enjoyable experience. Empire Magazine praise it for "Bravely refusing to rigidly adhere to a formula that has been so successful,” adding that “Wright, Pegg and Frost’s Cornetto Trilogy closer has tonal shifts you won’t expect, but the same beating heart you’ve been craving."

The filmmakers have returned, and corrected many of their mistakes. Hot Fuzz is not only hilariously funny, but every intelligent detail makes sense this time around, and the action is that much more engaging for what takes place because of it.
