Shaun of the Dead, Hot Fuzz, Scott Pilgrim vs. The World: three films in, and Edgar Wright has yet to falter. Wright’s distinct visual style is a major part of his appeal, so unsurprisingly, the three play well together in a tw0-minute clip.
Joel Walden has assembled a mashup of Wright’s films — Scott Pilgrim vs. Hot Shaun, if you will — and it carries the approval of Wright himself. Check it out after the jump.
I’m not sure how much credit is due to Walden, and how much to Wright and the original editors of the films (Chris Dickens on Shaun and Fuzz; Jonathan Amos and Paul Machliss on Scott Pilgrim), but the result is sharp. I love the touch of the black bar and Commodore 64 sound from Scott Pilgrim censoring Nick Frost.
Here’s what Walden had to say about his creation:
I would like to give my greatest thanks to Edgar Wright for being kind enough to post this on his website edgarwrighthere.com and his twitter account. I also give my sincere thanks to Simon Pegg for posting this on his twitter account! You guys are off the BLEEP-ing chain!
Let’s face it, Edgar Wright is one of the most talented directors out there right now. Being a huge fan of his films (and having met him in person as well), I felt that I should make a tribute for his three most popular films (Shaun of the Dead, Hot Fuzz and Scott Pilgrim Vs. The World). I hope you all enjoy this!
