New Wright-Pegg comedy comes to Little Theatre

July 12, 2007

KALAMAZOO--Western Film Society presents "Hot Fuzz," the latest action-comedy by director Edgar Wright and collaborating writer Simon Pegg, Friday through Sunday, July 20-22, in the Little Theatre at Western Michigan University.

Show times are Friday and Saturday at 7 and 9:30 p.m. and Sunday at 2:30 and 5 p.m. General admission is $5 and $3 for students.

Amid a backdrop of British humor, "Hot Fuzz," the new movie from the filmmakers of "Shaun of the Dead," tells the ironic story of the best cop on the London force. With an arrest record 400 percent higher than any of his colleagues, Nicholas Angel (Pegg) is good--so good that the rest of the force looks awful in his shadow. In an effort to save their own reputations, Angel's superiors decide to send him to the small town of Sandford. There, he is paired with Danny Butterman (Nick Frost), an action-obsessed movie fan who longs to experience high-speed car chases and explosive gunfights. It isn't until a series of gruesome events shakes the seemingly crime-free village that Angel starts to suspect there might be more to the sleepy town than he'd thought.

The 2007 film has a run time of 121 minutes and is rated R due to violent content including some graphic images and language.

The Little Theatre is located at the corner of Oakland Drive and Oliver Street on WMU's East Campus. Free off-street parking is available behind the theatre. For more information, visit the Western Film Society at www.rso.wmich.edu/wfs or call the Little Theatre movie line at (269) 387-8221.
