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 Tarantino and Creator/KevinSmith, both of whom he is close friends with.

Added DiffLines:

* 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.

Added DiffLines:

* AmicableExes: With Anna Kendrick. They met on the set of ''Scott Pilgrim'' and dated for four years. A couple of years afterwards, [[https://twitter.com/edgarwright/status/760988905885822976 Wright vocally supported the idea of her being as Squirrel Girl in the MCU.]] In a way, this trope comes into play with him and Marvel as well, given how his support comes even after his messy departure from ''Film/AntMan''.

* OldShame: His first film ''Film/DeadRight'' is this. This doesn't stop Simon Pegg and Nick Frost from ripping it to shreds in their commentary.
* OneOfUs: He loves movies so much, which he says is what you REALLY need for filmmaking. He and Creator/QuentinTarantino did a DVD commentary on ''Film/HotFuzz''. They talked about over 200 films.
* PromotedFanboy: Why he got into filmmaking in the first place.
* RomanceOnTheSet: He was in a relationship with Creator/AnnaKendrick whom he met on Scott Pilgrim.
* ShoutOut: His films are full of these.
* WhatCouldHaveBeen: He was set to direct ''Film/AntMan'', then left the project, though he remains credited as one of the film's writers.
