The uplifting story follows Hector (Simon Pegg) and his quest to find out whether happiness truly exists. It starts with Hector feeling trapped with his mundane daily routine and his neurotic girlfriend Clara (Rosamund Pike), so he decides to break away from his sheltered London life and go on a global quest to find out whether happiness truly exists.
Will he end up happy? We suspect so, but we’ll have to wait until August to find out.
The Boxtrolls (2014)
A young orphaned boy raised by underground cave-dwelling trash collectors tries to save his friends from an evil exterminator. Based on the children’s novel ‘Here Be Monsters’ by Alan Snow.
In cinemas 26 September 2014.
Hector and the Search for Happiness
Pegg plays Hector, an eccentric yet irresistible London psychiatrist in crisis: his patients are just not getting any happier! He’s going nowhere. Then one day, armed with buckets of courage and an almost child-like curiosity, Hector breaks out of his sheltered vacuum of a life into a global quest to find out if happiness exists. More importantly, if it exists for Hector. And so begins a colorful, exotic, dangerous and hysterical journey.
“In this city, everyone is guilty of something.”
After months away, causing our hearts to grow ever-fonder, All Star Celebrity Bowling is back with an episode of Earth-ending proportions. It’s Team Nerdist (Chris Hardwick, Jonah Ray, Matt Mira, and Chloe Dykstra) bowling against Team World’s End (Edgar Wright, Simon Pegg, Nick Frost, and special guest Sex Pistol Steve Jones)! As we saw with the Doctor Who bowling team, the Brits aren’t necessarily known for their pin-eradicating prowess, but if these fellows bowl anything like they direct movies, fight alien robots, and shred on the guitar, respectively, then they shouldn’t have much a problem at all.
