A Fantastic Fear of Everything

As we wait to see Simon Pegg in the sequel to Star Trek from J.J. Abrams and a new film pairing him with Nick Frost again to finish out the "Blood and Ice Cream Trilogy" from Edgar Wright, we'll get a little bit of the British actor in a peculiar new film called A Fantastic Fear of Everything, and the first trailer has just surfaced. Music video director Chris Hopewell and Kula Shaker frontman Chrispian Mills directs this film about a children's author-turned-crime-novelist whose deep research into gruesome Victorian era murders has made him an insomniac, fearful mess who finds himself on the run from an actual serial killer.

Watch the trailer for Chris Hopewell & Crispian Mills' A Fantastic Fear of Everything, via Twitter:

A Fantastic Fear of Everything is directed by Chris Hopewell (who has directed music videos for Radiohead and The Killers) and Crispian Mills (best known as the frontman for the British rock band Kula Shaker) from a script which the latter musician also wrote. The film has Pegg leading the film as Jack, a children's author-turned-crime-novelist whose deep research into gruesome Victorian era murders has made him an insomniac, fearful mess who finds himself on the run from an actual serial killer. The film is set to be released in the UK on June 8th, but doesn't currently have a US release date set yet, so stay tuned. Good?

      Different... This is Simon Pegg we're talking about.  Different doesn't even begin to explain it.

       I'm gonna comment here so that it puts unnecessary space between this and Ethan's response so it looks like he's not talking to you and everyone will think he's crazy by the way I am trying to destroy first showing dot net.

    The second paragraph is always a general information paragraph when we post trailers, first look photos, or posters. It will be the same if we post another trailer or a poster. That's why there's duplicate information. Otherwise the first paragraph is always different. Thanks for the snark though man. Always a sign of a good comment.

      No "snark" intended, Ethan. I might now sound like a kiss-ass, but FirstShowing has always been my favorite movie news source. It's my default homepage. I bullshit you not. It's just that the article looked funny because it was the exact same thing twice (only it actually had less info the first time). I've been reading you guys for almost three years now. I know your last paragraph's a general info thingamajig. But why must the first para of this specific article have the same thing? You can't deny it looks funny.

    That looks so good. Highly original and humorous. Feels like Fincher meets Gondry.

    I think that Ethan... Is Crazy...

    Delightfully unusual. Probably also un-watchable in one sitting.

    I could watch a 24-hour Simon Pegg marathon.

    This looks great! Very interesting...

    Fisher King vibe...in saying that I mean it has a Terry Gilliam vibe.
