HECTOR AND THE SEARCH FOR HAPPINESS Simon Pegg Movie Image | Collider
OOOh this sounds interesting but movies like this almost always turn into maudlin 'easy answers' type things.Quote:
To help celebrate the end of filming on director Peter Chelsom’s drama/comedy Hector and the Search for Happiness, Simon Pegg has tweeted the first official image from the film. Based on the book of the same name by Franηois Lelord, the film stars Simon Pegg, Rosamund Pike, Christopher Plummer, Toni Collette, Stellan Skarsgεrd, and Jean Reno. Here’s the synopsis:
“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.”
Joseph Gordon-Levitt and Paul Rudd Frontrunners for Lead in Marvel’s ANT-MAN

Technical Commentary with Director Edgar Wright and Director of Photography Bill Pope - Although the commentary with Wright and Pegg explains plenty of the film's technical bits, this one is completely devoted to that topic. They talk about framing, lighting, style, the opposition they received when explaining that they wanted to shoot on celluloid, and so much more.
Cast Commentary with Simon Pegg, Nick Frost and Paddy Considine - It's explained that Martin Freeman, Eddie Marsan and Rosamund Pike were all shooting other projects while the others recorded this track. Like the Wright/Pegg commentary, this one is full of fast humor but, unfortunately, it's not as focused. While being funny, Wright and Pegg are able to keep it on track; whereas, this track sounds more like a few buddies getting together for the first time in ages.

Filling in the Blanks: The Stunts and FX of 'The World's End' (HD, 27:40) One-third of this feature is dedicated to the physical preparation that went into the action scenes.
