“We are Sex Bob-Omb and we are here to make you think about death and get sad and stuff.”
Produced, directed, and co-written by Edgar Wright (SHAUN OF THE DEAD, HOT FUZZ, THE WORLD’S END) and based on the cult graphic novel series ‘Scott Pilgrim’ by Bryan Lee O’Malley, SCOTT PILGRIM vs. THE WORLD is a rare beast indeed – a successfully adapted film embraced by both fans of the original text and movie-lovers alike. Michael Cera shines as the sweetly aloof Torontonian Scott Pilgrim, a floundering bass guitarist forced to battle his girlfriend Ramona’s seven evil exes who all want him dead. With Mary Elizabeth Winstead, Kieran Culkin, Alison Pill, Anna Kendrick, Aubrey Plaza, Jason Schwartzman.
“The speedy, funny, happy-sad spirit of “Scott Pilgrim vs. the World” is infectious.” (New York Times)

SCOTT PILGRIM vs. THE WORLD (Edgar Wright, 2010 / 112 mins / PG) | As bass guitarist for a garage-rock band, Scott Pilgrim (Michael Cera) has never had trouble getting a girlfriend; usually, the problem is getting rid of them. But when Ramona Flowers (Mary Elizabeth Winstead) skates into his heart, he finds she has the most troublesome baggage of all: an army of ex-boyfriends who will stop at nothing to eliminate him from her list of suitors.
