Scott Pilgrim Vs. The World"Scott Pilgrim Vs. The World" hits shelves on DVD and Blu-Ray in November, and Universal has released the full specs for every iteration of Edgar Wright's live-action adaptation of Bryan Lee O'Malley's hit comic book series.

While the movie didn't quite meet expectations at the box office, it was difficult to find anyone who didn't have high praise for Wright's kinetic, effects-driven celebration of everything that made O'Malley's comic so great. And like any good DVD/Blu-Ray release, the movie comes packed with some cool bonus features, too.

Personally, I'm a little intrigued by the deleted scenes and alternate footage, as I managed to sneak into an early workprint of the film and, well... the ending of the unfinished version of the film was quite different from the theater cut I saw. Read More...

Okay, so "Scott Pilgrim Vs. The World" didn't do as well in theaters as many of us hoped, but for those of us who did buy a ticket (or two or three) and want to keep showing some love to Edgar Wright's awesomely kinetic, retro-tastic adaptation of Bryan Lee O'Malley's comics, this giveaway is for you.

So... I have a pair of official "Scott Pilgrim Vs. The World" hats for two lucky, Twitter-enabled readers that need a good home. Here's a photo:

Okay, this one comes with a big ol' SPOILER ALERT, people. Seriously, if you haven't read the sixth and final volume of Bryan Lee O'Malley's "Scott Pilgrim" comics, STOP RIGHT NOW.

Okay, we clear now? Everyone who's even the slightest bit spoiler-conscious has left the room? Let's proceed then, shall we?

When I spoke to the "Scott Pilgrim Vs. The World" cast at Comic-Con, one of the interesting moments in our conversation occurred when I asked Mark Webber, Johnny Simmons, and Alison Pill (who play Sex Bob-Omb musicians Stephen Stills, Young Neil, and Kim Pine, respectively) whether they'd read the final volume of the comic to find out what happens to their characters there. The big reveal in Webber's response was something I just had to share with you.

"I haven't read it yet either, but interestingly enough, I do know what happens to my character," said Webber. "Because in the production of the film, we were each given ten secrets about our characters." Read More...

The long wait is over. After years of development, director Edgar Wright has finally brought "Scott Pilgrims vs. The World" to theaters.

If you've already seen the film — and let's assume that if you haven't seen it yet, you're planning on seeing it tonight — you already know just how engrossing each and every actor in the "Scott Pilgrim" cast truly is. From the central roles of Michael Cera as Scott and Mary Elizabeth Winstead as Ramona, to evil ex's like Chris Evans as Lucas Lee and Brandon Routh as Todd Ingram, everyone brings an enormous amount of talent and personality to the "Scott Pilgrim" table.

And just because they're mostly relegated to the sidelines of "Scott Pilgrim" action, the Sex Bob-Omb trio of Mark Webber as Stephen Stills, Johnny Simmons as Young Neil and Alison Pill as Kim Pine are no less investedin their characters. Read More...

When "Scott Pilgrim vs. The World" was officially optioned way back in 2005, one of the first questions on the minds of the fans was who could possibly do justice to Ramona Flowers — the object of Scott's affections — on the big screen.

And while fans didn't get their first glimpse of Mary Elizabeth Winstead as Ramona until early last year, even Winstead was surprised to discover that she could be transformed into Bryan Lee O'Malley's unique comic book heroine.

"I really didn't even know that I could look like that," Winstead told MTV News. "I think Edgar [Wright] knew (more than I did) that I could put on this wig, this outfit and this makeup and be a completely different person. I was kind of amazed when I first put on the outfit. I was like 'Oh my god! I'm Ramona. This is insane!' So yeah, I was very surprised that I was able to pull it off." Read More...

"Scott Pilgrim" Vs. The World" is officially in theaters here in the U.S., meaning the wait is over for everyone eagerly anticipating Edgar Wright's adaptation of Bryan Lee O'Malley's popular comic book series.

Of course, that also means that the comic's legions of fans will soon have a chance to judge whether the live-action film measures up to its source material — a pressure that "Scott Pilgrim" actors Satya Bhabha (who plays evil ex #1, Matthew Patel) and Brandon Routh (evil ex #3, Todd Ingram) were well aware of when making the movie.

"There was certainly pressure," said Bhabha when I asked him during this year's Comic-Con in San Diego if the cast felt the weight of fan expectations. Read More...

"Scott Pilgrim Vs. The World" debuts today (TODAY!), and our Scott Pilgrim Week coverage rolls on with one last clip from the film.

In the following clip, Scott gets a call from Ramona's final evil ex, Gideon Graves (played by Jason Schwartzman), who tries to smooth things over with the slacker hero of the film. But is he really trying to bury the hatchet, or cut him a little deeper?

And just in case you haven't been following along at home, here's a quick roundup of everything we've brought you this week so far. Read More...

Just as the world of "Scott Pilgrim" wouldn't be possible without Bryan Lee O'Malley, the forthcoming film adaptation would be vastly different without the directorial supervision of Edgar Wright. The "Shaun of the Dead" and "Hot Fuzz" filmmaker had a very specific vision for "Scott Pilgrim vs. The World," a vision that the film's cast fully embraced with open arms.

"He has a vision and he's very precise — he knows exactly what he wants," actress Aubrey Plaza told MTV News about working with Wright. "For me, it was kind of about figuring out what I wanted to bring and combine that with his vision and kind of nail it. It's all about timing with him. It was a learning experience for me, and it was challenging, but it was a really, really good experience." Read More...

Scott PilgrimLet me get this out of the way right at the start: I love this new "Scott Pilgrim Vs. The World" poster. I love it as much as I like cake — and I am a cake fiend.

Created by artist Martin Ansin for Mondo, the Alamo Drafthouse art boutique, the poster commemorates tonight's special screening of "Scott Pilgrim" at the Alamo Drafthouse in Austin, TX. Director Edgar Wright and some of the film's cast will reportedly attend the event, which is sponsored by Fantastic Fest and Ain't It Cool News.

This is just one of two posters created for the event. The other poster will be revealed at the screening, with both on sale at the screening. Some will be available for purchase online tomorrow (Friday, August 13) at the Mondo website. Read More...

When the first "Scott Pilgrim" trailer hit the 'Net, we compared some of our favorite scenes to their counterparts in the comic. Sure, it came as no surprise to anyone who's been following along at home, but Edgar Wright's upcoming film shares a lot of imagery with Bryan Lee O'Malley's wildly popular Oni Press comic.

Now that more footage has arrived online, we decided to take another look at the blending of live-action footage and comic panels that has everyone talking about "Scott Pilgrim Vs. The World."

Pretty great, eh? Well, that's not all the epic "Scott Pilgrim" epic-ness we have for you this week. Read More...
