Due for UK release on 16th February (limited US on April 13th), the official website has now gone live (although not fully finished yet) at www.hotfuzz.com.
Choose UK or US when entering the site, and then explore the areas such as Sandford Village People, The Crown Pub, Roper's Newsagent and the Sandford Police Station.
