An interview with Edgar Wright and Simon Pegg of “The World’s End”

There aren’t many film series quite like director Edgar Wright’s Three Flavours Cornetto trilogy, which left plenty of room for discussion when The Daily talked with Wright and stars Simon Pegg and Nick Frost in advance of the concluding film’s premiere later this month.

Each of the three films — “Shaun of the Dead,” “Hot Fuzz” and “The World’s End,” out Aug. 23 — represents a collaboration between Wright, Pegg and Frost, but feature different characters, are situated in a different genre and tell a different story.

What to expect at the 2013 San Francisco International Film Festival

The 56th Annual San Francisco International Film Festival (SFIFF), which runs from April 25 to May 9, mainly in Japantown at the Sundance Kabuki and New People Cinema, is already shaping up to be a very exciting couple of weeks. The festival plays host to 151 films from 51 countries and in 31 different languages. One of the great pleasures of attending SFIFF is getting to see these films the way they were meant to be seen–on a big screen, in digital projection–since many won’t get a wide release, and those that do may play only briefly at smaller cinemas like the Embarcadero Cinema or Opera Plaza Cinemas, as well as sample films from all over the world all in one day.

SFIFF: Centerpiece showing

On April 30, the San Francisco Film Festival held its major Centerpiece screening of Lynn Shelton’s “Your Sister’s Sister,” starring Emily Blunt, Rosemarie DeWitt and Mark Duplass. The Centerpiece screening is, unsurprisingly, held right in the middle of the festival and showcases a promising new independent film. Past Centerpiece screenings include “Happythankyoumoreplease,” “500 Days of Summer” and “Terri.”
