We still have a little while to wait for "Scott Pilgrim Vs. The World" to arrive in theaters, but it's hard not to count the days until we finally get to see director Edgar Wright bring Bryan Lee O'Malley's series to the big screen.
When we recently sat down with "Scott Pilgrim" star Michael Cera to talk about his upcoming film "Youth In Revolt," we were armed with a question about the comic book adaptation directly from Wright himself.
"That movie has more air cannon and lightbulbs in it than any other movie I have ever seen," said Cera when we posed him the question from his "Scott Pilgrim" director. Read More...
"Whiteout" hits theaters today, and the long-awaited adaptation of Greg Rucka and Steve Lieber's graphic novel features Kate Beckinsale as Carrie Stetko, the U.S. Marshal who finds herself racing against time to discover the identity of a murderer in one of the most remote locations in the world: Antarctica.
Earlier this year, we talked to Rucka about the film based on his ice-cold murder mystery, and now we have some thoughts from the star herself about the source material, the controversial changes made to the original story, and her character's famous (to fans of the book, at least) injury—and ambiguous sexuality.
We also get the skinny on the possibility that we'll see the rest of Rucka and Lieber's three-book series brought to the screen. Read More...
FROM MOVIES.MTV.COM: It's probably not director Dominic Sena's fault that his new snowbound thriller, "Whiteout," suggests so many tantalizing genre directions in which the movie itself, unfortunately, doesn't go. The picture's general thrill deficit, however — well, that would seem to be Sena's purview.
Early on there's a scene in which U.S. Marshall Carrie Stetko (Kate Beckinsale) enters her quarters at the Antarctic research station where she's the lone law-enforcer and strips to her underwear, allowing the camera to ogle her behind as she bends over. Then she steps into a shower, affording us one of those shot-through-frosted-glass views of Beckinsale's (or somebody's) vaguely nude body luxuriating in the steamy spray.
Naturally, we think: Okay, this is gonna be a movie with some R-rated skin. But no. The Antarctic, being a place where temperatures can plunge to 100 degrees below zero, is the land of heavily layered clothing, of the sort in which Beckinsale spends much of the rest of the film.

After months of filming and daily updates, "Scott Pilgrim vs. the World" has finally finished the game—or, more accurately, it's beaten one level and is moving onto the next.
"Today... 'Scott Pilgrim Vs The World'... WRAPS principal photography," Bryan Lee O'Malley, creator of the "Scott Pilgrim" comic book series, wrote on Twitter this morning. "Wherever you are, give them a round of applause!"
Even if you're not a longtime fan of "Scott Pilgrim" (which you should be, so shame on you if you're not!), you have to admire how inviting the Edgar Wright-directed production has been thanks to the many video blogs featuring Wright, Michael Cera, Mary Elizabeth Winstead and the rest of the film's cast.

It's a good time to be Greg Rucka right about now, and an even better time to be a fan of the acclaimed writer. In addition to the newly announced "Queen & Country" film in development, Rucka's creator-owned "Whiteout," co-created and illustrated by Steve Lieber, is finally coming to the big screen in a few weeks.
In anticipation of the theatrical debut for "Whiteout" on September 11, Warner Bros. has released a gallery of images from the Antarctica-set thriller.
"Whiteout" stars Kate Beckinsale and Gabriel Macht, two faces that are hardly unfamiliar to the comic book world. Read More...
Just in time for this year's Penny Arcade Expo in Seattle, "Scott Pilgrim" creator Bryan Lee O'Malley has a new poster ready to send in his absence—and video game geeks should take note.
O'Malley has been foreshadowing the reveal of the new print on his Twitter account this week, dropping hints and offering a contest up for anyone who could guess which characters would appear.
"It's a parody/homage of 'Gem Fighter'/'Pocket Fighter,'" O'Malley posted in his Flickr account. For a comic that has previously integrating imagery from "Super Mario Bros. 3," "Sonic the Hedgehog" and "Double Dragon," his latest choice from Capcom's game catalog should come as no surprise.

Fans of writer Greg Rucka are counting down the days until the Kate Beckinsale-starring "Whiteout" hits theaters, but there's another comic book adaptation from the acclaimed wordsmith making its way to the big screen.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, screenwriter Ryan Condal will write "Queen & Country," an adaptation of the Oni Press comic series written and created by Rucka.
The film is currently set up at Fox and has already received one draft of the script from writer John Moore. Condal will take a second crack at the high-stakes adventure story. Read More...
You know what I love about Jason Schwartzman? The dude always seems to be clued in on what’s going to be cool next, yet part of his charm is that he doesn’t seem to think he’s cool. Which makes him, well… cool.
As comics-lovers know, there are few things cooler than “Scott Pilgrim vs. the World.” And when I spoke with the former Max Fischer Tuesday evening, he had literally just wrapped.
“I finished last night,” Schwartzman told MTV News. “I’m back in Los Angeles—I just got off a plane two hours ago.” Read More...
Even though fans have yet to be treated to a proper trailer for the upcoming "Scott Pilgrim Vs. The World," that doesn't mean there haven't been plenty of peeks into production courtesy of director Edgar Wright's blog. With shooting entering its final stages, Wright's most recent video update hints at the film's most coveted details regarding the final showdown between titular protagonist Scott Pilgrim and his love's most evil ex-boyfriend Gideon Graves.
The update shows Wright reporting from the top of what appears to be a light-up pyramid stage adorned with all the trimmings of a proper rock show, including modified Marshall guitar amplifiers and speaker cabinets. Mary Elizabeth Winstead appears wearing bright green hair as Ramona Flowers, having switched colors since last fans saw her, mirroring her character's comic characteristic. Read More...
