Director Edgar Wright has curated three seasons of his mini-film festival “The Wright Stuff” at the New Beverly since 2007. He just announced the lineup for a fourth round—this one under the heading “The World’s End Is Nigh”—with a specific goal in mind:
“Now, to get you in the mood for the North American release of The World’s End on Aug 23rd, I have put together 12 stepping stones to our new movie. The films are all great and all wildly diverse, but you will see some of the seeds of their influence in our new movie.”
