Watch: Edgar Wright's First Movie, 'A Fistful of Fingers,' Is Like a Gorier 'Blazing Saddles'

May 08, 2013

 

A trailer for the last installment in Edgar Wright, Simon Pegg and Nick Frost's Three Flavours Cornetto Trilogy arrived earlier this morning. The World's End follows five childhood friends as they reunite for a legendary pub crawl that finishes at an alehouse known as the World's End. Instead of drunken shenanigans, the buddies are faced with saving the world. While we wait to see what madness ensues on August 23, let's take a look back at 20-year-old Edgar Wright's Bournemouth Arts College-age film, the Western parody A Fistful of Fingers.

It was never widely distributed, but the spoof was picked up for a limited run and a spot on British TV. The project also caught the attention of comedians Matt Lucas and David Walliams, and BBC television, which helped launch Wright's directing career. Wright has a "two-bit farmer" cameo in his 1994 film and provides the "cheesy" voice-over. Think of it as a gorier, baby-faced Blazing Saddles, with touches of spaghetti Monty Python on a school budget.

Check out an interview with the adorably young Wright, and watch the film in full.
