Trailer for Simon Pegg’s ‘A Fantastic Fear of Everything’ Lands

Written by , on April 6, 2012 at 1:57 pm 

Outside of his perfect collaborations with Edgar Wright, the film career of Simon Pegg hasn’t been quite up to par with what I’d hope — Star Trek and Ghotocol being obvious exceptions — so I’m glad to be truly taken with the trailer for his next solo outing, A Fantastic Fear of Everything. Posted by Pegg on Twitter, this preview not only lays the groundwork for an interesting story and hints at some creative visuals — on the part of debut helmers Chris Hopewell and Crispian Mills — but, on top of that, also shows the actor mix up his typical stylings with something a little more dramatic. Fingers crossed this turns out as fantastic as I think.

Watch the preview below:


Synopsis: Jack is a children’s author turned crime novelist whose detailed research into the lives of Victorian serial killers has turned him into a paranoid wreck, persecuted by the irrational fear of being murdered. When Jack is thrown a life-line by his long-suffering agent and a mysterious Hollywood executive takes a sudden and inexplicable interest in his script, what should be his big break rapidly turns into his big breakdown, as Jack is forced to confront his worst demons; among them his love life, his laundry and the origin of all fear.

What are your impressions from this first preview?
