Rollerball + Episode III + Juno = First Look at Scott Pilgrim vs. the World
Scott Pilgrim vs. the World is the next hotly buzzed movie from Shaun of the Dead/Hot Fuzz writer/director Edgar Wright, based on the series of graphic novels by Canadian Canadian cartoonist Bryan Lee O'Malley. A sort of slacker-romance-cum-superhero-fantasy starring Michael Cera as a guy who sets out to defeat all the super-exes of the girl he loves, a recent screening of a rough-cut inspired Superbad director Greg Mottola to write this on his Twitter:
Be very jealous of me. I've seen an entire cut of SCOTT PILGRIM VS. THE WORLD. Edgar Wright has made a classic (again)! It's amazing...I would say that Scott Pilgrim is the wittiest action movie you'll ever see, but that's just the half of it...Needless to say, Michael Cera is perfect. In fact, every single performance is incredible. You've got something special to look forward to...one last SP rave: the filmmaking is so insanely good, I retired halfway through the movie. (looking forward to the pension checks, tho)
Yeah, so, there you have it. That good.
Universal has released two images from the film. The first is the one above, taken from the film's last battle. That's Jason Schwartzman in the white blazer standing at the top, playing Gideon Gordon Graves, the final Evil Ex-Boyfriend boss. Here's the second, less-exciting picture, sort of giving off a "Scooby-Doo gang standing their ground at the roller rink" vibe.
