While the cinematic universe is currently focused on Edgar Wright's Baby Driver -- as well it should, it's amazing -- Focus Features and CinemaBlend want to take you back a tad. As part of its 15th anniversary celebration, Focus Features is hosting a screening series of some of its most iconic works from the past 15 years. One of those happens to be Wright's seminal zombie comedy, Shaun of the Dead, the first film to introduce mainstream crowds to Wright's humor... and the delicious pairing of Simon Pegg and Nick Frost.
We are getting in on the Shaun of the Dead love, by passing out three (3) limited edition prints made in conjunction with the anniversary screening. Check out the print. Details on how to win are below:

Dan Mumford, an illustrator working out of central London in the UK, created this print for Focus Features and the anniversary screening they are hosting for Shaun of the Dead. (Follow him at @danmumforddraws.) There are currently two Rooftop Cinema Screening Series showings of Shaun on the schedule for July: Friday, July 7 in London, and; Tuesday, July 18 in New York City. Head here for tickets and venue information, as well as the full slate of The Focus 15 Screening Series.
In Shaun of the Dead, a slacker named Shaun (Simon Pegg) and his best mate, Ed (Nick Frost), must make their way to the neighborhood pub and rescue Shaun's girl (Kate Ashfield) after a zombie infection breaks out in their small London town. The wild comedy dialed into Edgar Wright's unique and irreverent sense of humor, and married those jokes to a whip-smart visual style that kept jokes flying at a furious pace. Wright would go on to perfect that approach to storytelling in movies like Hot Fuzz and The World's End. And in Baby Driver, he applies his style to a full-blown crime caper, with dizzying results.
So, head on over to CinemaBlend's Twitter feed. Try and secure one of three limited edition Shaun of the Dead posters. And support Focus Features as they ring in 15 years of fantastic films.
