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.
Full Cast Announced for Kriv Stenders’ Kill Me Three Times
“Kill Me Three Times” takes place in a sundrenched Australian surfing town, where a young singer, portrayed by Alice Braga, is the thread that binds three tales of murder, blackmail and revenge. Simon Pegg plays a mercurial assassin, who is hired by her wealthy husband (Callan Mulvey), but there is more than one person gunning for her. Sullivan Stapleton has been cast as a gambling addict that attempts to pay off his debts through a risky life insurance scam, whilst Teresa Palmer plays a small town Lady Macbeth who masterminds the scheme. Bryan Brown, a corrupt cop, also tries to get his cut and Luke Hemsworth portrays Braga’s love interest, a local surfer who hopes to rescue the young woman from Pegg’s telescopic sights.
“Henri Le Worm and his Amazing Cooking Adventures” is a series of interactive Apps that encourage children and adults alike to connect with food and nature in a positive and playful way.

Raymond Blanc has developed the recipes within the app and he has promised to deliver easy, fun and nutritious meals for the whole family to enjoy.
Fans of Simon Pegg and Edgar Wright turned out in force at theaters this weekend, as the third and final entry in their thematic “Cornetto trilogy” of films gave the writer/director team their strongest opening yet at the U.S. box office.
Showing on only 1,549 screens, the film — which also stars Nick Frost and Sherlock‘s Martin Freeman — nevertheless racked up $8.9 million in sales across its opening weekend, a take that put it in fourth place overall. But the film received a significantly better per-screen average than the third-placed Mortal Instruments: City of Bones. It’s also the best opening weekend that any of the trilogy has had in the U.S., beating Shaun of the Dead‘s $3.3 million and Hot Fuzz‘s $5.8 million.
