The eagerly anticipated second feature from the co-creators of 2004’s award-winning sleeper hit Shaun of the Dead is a contemporary action comedy. Police officer Nicholas Angel (Simon Pegg) is London’s top cop. This tough law enforcer is good at his job – so good, in fact, that he makes his colleagues look bad. As a result, his superiors “promote” him to the village of Sandford, where all is garden parties and neighborhood watch meetings. Partnered with Danny Butterman (Nick Frost), an oafish but well-meaning young local cop, Angel struggles to adapt. But he just can’t…until a series of grisly “accidents” indicates that foul play is afoot. Suddenly, this seemingly idyllic town is a case that Angel has to crack – hard.
The cast includes Simon Pegg, Nick Frost, Jim Broadbent, Timothy Dalton, Steve Coogan, Martin Freeman, Timothy Spall, Paddy Considine, Anne Reid, Rafe Spall, David Bradley, Paul Freeman, Edward Woodward, Billie Whitelaw, Lucy Punch, Peter Wight, Olivia Colman and Karl Johnson.
