“They’re bad boys. They’re die hards. They’re lethal weapons. They are… Hot Fuzz.”
Original 2007 one-sheet movie poster for the Pegg/Frost/Wright collaboration “Hot Fuzz”. A poster that is genuinely scarce due to limited cinema release and like the makers’ previous collaboration “Shaun of the Dead” it has very quickly gained a cult following. “Hot Fuzz” satirises American action films in a way that an American satire would not. Edgar Wright and Simon Pegg don’t simply spoof the plot threads and the car chases. They know the smaller details of Hollywood’s formula, as they exemplify with its continuous references to the scene in Point Break where Keanu Reeves fires his gun into the sky in anger and the scene in Bad Boys II where Martin Lawrence, in a circling tracking shot, says, “S*** just got real.” Not only do they tackle those less clear characteristics of Hollywood, they also perfectly portray people who talk about awesome scenes in action movies, hilariously by Nick Frost. Eye catching design by Creative Partnership of Pegg & Frost this excellent rolled example displays superbly and represents a super example of classic British cinema memorabilia.

Trivia: A speech given by Hugh Grant in this movie (where he extols the virtues of Great Britain and refuses to cave to the pressure of its longstanding ally, the United States) was etched in the transatlantic memory as a satirical, wishful statement on the concurrent relationship with George W. Bush. Tony Blair responded by saying in 2005, “I know there’s a bit of us that would like me to do a Hugh Grant in Love Actually (2003) and tell America where to get off. But the difference between a good film and real life is that in real life there’s the next day, the next year, the next lifetime to contemplate the ruinous consequences of easy applause.”…more detail
