HOT SOUTHERN HEMPISHERE!! FUZZ in OZ and NZ

Kiwis and Aussies beware!

We are heading your way shortly! Very shortly!

Myself, Simon and Nick get on a plane next week to Wellington for the New Zealand leg of our world press tour.

Look out for us on the radio, TV, signings etc. See local press for details.

And also our NZ premiere is at The Embassy on Friday the 9th. With a special guest presenting us...

See the link for more details...

http://www.scoop.co.nz/stories/CU0703/S00021.htm

Then on Monday 12th March we will be in Sydney for a premiere at the Greater Union Cinema on George Street.

And on Tuesday 13th March we fly to Melbourne for a Q&A at Popcorn Taxi.

If you're in any of those fair cities, then see you there.

We'll be all over the airwaves too - so do look out for us.

Apologies for the slightly vague info.

Over and out.

Edgar

p.s. We're in Amsterdam soon and then all over the U.S. like a hot mess.

Fuckin ace.

I met Rebus and alt at Young and Jacksons (pub near the cinema) around 3pm. I recognised them from the Jaffa cake tube on the table, and they must have recognised me as a cheap Shaun rip-off (I'd just come from work, and I decided to wear a red tie instead of regulation blue). This image may have been exacerbated by me making a Foree Electric badge. Anyway, we had a few pints and a bit of a chatette, getting excited and nervous about lining up to early or too late. AusChick turned up, and dolfyn wasn't far behind. A friend of mine came too (she also ordered the Hot Fuzz soundtrack from the UK for me! What a sweetie). Around 5.30 (was it guys? I can't remember the time) we went over to the ACMI cinema and there was about 20 people there, so we stayed for a while. I went to get some food with my other mates who had turned up, and when we came back I had to go to the loo. When I came back, they were filing in! I nearly pissed myself (luckily I'd just taken care of that), lined up, and ran down the front where I knew they'd be. We all sat down, and the friend who bought me the HF soundtrack cracked open some Twiglets (they taste like arse). Some bint from ACMI introduced the film.

-insert explosions/guns/swan/car chases/more guns here-

Some bastard came on stage and introduced the lads (to rapturous applause). He proceeded to interview them, and Nick started looking at me. He told Simon that there was a Shaun in the crowd, and they both looked at me. I blathered a bit and waved. The interview continued about influences, how they met, research for Hot Fuzz, pretty stock standard. He asked E-ball about Grindhouse, and he replied that Simon and Nick are in the trailer he's directing, but they're hard to recognise. Simon said he loves working with his two best mates, but none of them are limited to each other. Having said that, they are thinking of ideas for their 3rd film (jokingly/lovingly titled 'Three Colours Cornetto' ie Three Colours Strawberry, Three Colours Mint, Three Colours Vanilla).
The audience Q+A was prefaced by Simon banning questions about Spaced 3. The questions were also pretty stock standard, and the lads answered them promptly, if less than enthusiastically. I blame travelling through several cities in 2 days. When asked what kind of film he wanted to do next, Simon said bukkake. Filthy bitch. Last few questions came up, and because no Spaced Outer had asked a question yet and dolfyn had her hand up, a few of us pointed at her and she got chosen. I thought she was going to thank them on behalf of us, but nooo (just kidding!). It was all over, except the mad scramble to get some shit signed. Simon hastily asked if anyone from the forum was here, and we shouted like mad bastards. Only one item signed per punter, so I had to abandon my huge poster, Shuan dvd, hairy chest, HF soundtrack, and settled for my Spaced box (he he, box) set. When invited out for a drink, Simon begrudgingly said they had 'corporate commitments'. We were herded out of the cinema, but because we were all dazed, we were out the front when the lads got into a Tarago. After some hooting and shouting 'bye' we sat on the steps for some pics, then went back to the pub for a last pint. Bit of final hero worship and movie loving discussion, then we went our seperate ways.

Great to meet you all,
