The mastermind behind the so-called "Cornetto Trilogy" of "Shaun of the Dead" (2004), "Hot Fuzz" (2007) and "The World's End" (2013), as well as the cult-favorite British comedy series "Spaced" (Channel 4 1999-2001), director Edgar Wright first became known for his collaborations with actor/writer Simon Pegg, but soon established himself as a gifted filmmaker in his own right through quirky, inventive works like video game homage "Scott Pilgrim Vs. the World" (2010), his script for Marvel Universe blockbuster "Ant-Man" (2015), and car chase epic "Baby Driver" (2017). Wright grew up in rural England, so obsessed with "Star Wars" and horror films that in his early teens, he made his own movies with a second-hand 8mm camera. Just as he fused fresh, brilliant comedy with solid horror and action production values, Wright himself combined a love of movies with old-fashioned hard work and ingenuity from the very beginning, making primitive movies with his classmates and friends with money made stocking shelves at a supermarket after school. Considering his inspired fake horror film trailer in the middle of the B-movie tribute "Grindhouse" (2007), Wright never lost sight of his original love of all movies, big and small.
