Run, Fatboy, Run premieres in London

11 September 2007

Comedy fans were out in force to welcome Simon Pegg (BA 1991) to the premier of his much-anticipated film, Run, Fat Boy, Run, at the Odeon West End on 4 September.

Simon, of Spaced and Hot Fuzz fame, plays Dennis, who is a little on the hefty side. Dennis leaves his fiancé at the altar on their wedding day. Several years later, he realizes he left the love of his life and becomes determined that the only way to win her back is to run a marathon, something he's not quite in shape for.

The film was directed by Friends star David Schwimmer and also stars Dylan Moran.
