A little over a year ago we found out that Shaun of the Dead, Hot Fuzz, The World’s End, and Paul stars Simon Pegg and Nick Frost were starting their own film and television production company called Stolen Picture. At the time it was also revealed that their first project would be a horror-comedy titled Slaughterhouse Rulez.
An official trailer for the movie—which stars Asa Butterfield, Finn Cole, Hermione Corfield, Michael Sheen, and Pegg and Frost—was released last week. And if you’re like me and missed it then, you can check it out below now, along with a poster and the official synopsis.
