By the flaming sword of Michael Cera! First official images from Scott Pilgrim!

source: slashfilm.com

Universal pictures have released the first images from Edgar Wright‘s Scott Pilgrim vs. the World. We recently called this the most exciting upcoming release of 2010. These images only confirm our claim.

Allow me to simply reprint my hyperbolic rave from that aforementioned article:

“Much like last year’s number 1 film, my most anticipated picture of 2010 is another long-awaited adaptation of a graphic novel. Bryan Lee O’Malley’s six-part Scott Pilgrim saga is equal parts (500) Days of Summer and Super Mario Bros. It is an evocative and truthful romantic comedy, wrapped up in an absurd video-game, executed with satirical (and sometimes blisteringly earnest) perfection. It skewers Hollywood, fighting games, indie-punk, Canadian/American affairs, ‘the scene’ and post-teen/pre-adult relationships – all in the most loving manner possible.”

“Michael Cera stars as slacker Scott Pilgrim, bass player for the band Sex Bob-omb, who falls in love with the elusive roller-skating delivery girl Ramona Flowers (Mary Elizabeth Winstead). He’s ready for romance, but Ramona’s affection comes at a price – he must defeat her seven evil ex-boyfriends, including the dastardly Gideon Graves (Jason Schwartzman), if he wishes to claim her hand.”

“Directed by Edgar Wright (Shaun of the Dead, Hot Fuzz) and adapted for the screen by writer Michael Bacall (he was an Inglourious Basterd!), Scott Pilgrim has been atop my most-anticipated film list for some time now. At its best, it could be a hilarious, action-packed and very touching film that captures Generation Y better than even Juno or Superbad. At its worst, it’ll probably just rock really hard.”

So there you go! Scott Pilgrim vs. the World hits cinemas some time this year.

Discuss: So, how awesome is this?

  1. I love Michael Cera and can not wait to see this film! It would be nice to see him doing something other than the usual. By the way, do you know where you can get these comics from? I haven't seen them around anywhere.

  2. You can pick up the first five volumes from Amazon here: http://www.amazon.com/s/ref=nb_ss?url=search-alias%3Daps&field-keywords=scott+pilgrimThe sixth (and final) volume is set to drop sometime this year (probably around the same time as the film is released).In Perth, you can find the comics at either Empire Toys or Quality Comics in the city. Not sure about other states, so if anyone has any suggestions, please reply below.Otherwise, check out the official site here: http://www.scottpilgrim.com/Also, I cannot recommend these comics highly enough (as if that weren't already clear by now).
