Edgar Wright Programs a Marathon of His Favorite Movies


Gearing up for the US release of his new film, The World’s End, filmmaker Edgar Wright (Shaun of the Dead, Hot Fuzz) picked a bunch of his favorite movies that inspired The World’s End and programmed them for a week of double features at LA’s New Beverly Cinema. Whether you live in LA or not, you can still enjoy Wright’s movie selections in the lead-up to the film’s release. Wright has been programming movies at the New Beverly for years now, but this list is particularly impressive, featuring everything from teen movies like Dazed and Confused and American Graffiti to apocalyptic films like The Road Warrior and Last Night.
