Edgar Howard Wright (born 18 April 1974) is a British director known for making stylish, genre-busting films, usually working with Creator/{{Simon Pegg}} and Creator/NickFrost. He is also known for his surprising talent of making films that function equally well as both [[GenreDeconstruction deconstructions]] and [[ChekhovsArmoury carefully crafted]] stories. He is [[OneofUs one of us]], a very notable example of a film geek-come-director a la Creator/QuentinTarantino and Creator/KevinSmith, both of whom he is close friends with.

* AdvertisingByAssociation: ''Film/{{Sightseers}}'' is "From the makers of ''Film/HotFuzz'', ''Film/{{Paul}}'' & ''Film/ShaunOfTheDead''". Of course, Wright only [[{{Producers}} produced]] this film, not wrote and directed it. Note that ''Film/TheWorldsEnd'' isn't on that list because, though complete, hadn't been released yet and that ''Film/ScottPilgrimVsTheWorld'' isn't because the film was targeted at British audiences, the genre of the film is much more like the Film/BloodAndIceCreamTrilogy, RuleOfThree, and the marketing department may have wanted to noncommittally suggest that SimonPegg and Nick Frost would be in it.

* SignatureStyle: Creative, stylized, GenreBusting films with just a bit of satire. Main characters are likable whether their NiceGuy's or they are JerkWithAHeartOfGold. He homages clips from films into his own. He also takes old fashioned cliches into something overblown and fresh. Main action is not super realistic but creates a awesome movie experience. Also at least one MickeyMousing scene where the action ties into the rhythem of the soundtrack, especially in ''Baby Driver''
