"Scott Pilgrim vs. The World" star Michael Cera's involvement in film's Scott Pilgrim Experience at San Diego Comic-Con this week wasn't limited to just making T-shirts. As it turns out, he hung out in line and posed for a picture or two. The funny part is that the fans taking the photos didn't necessarily know who they were shooting.
"I'd like to point out that we have the Scott Pilgrim Experience, where we can make T-shirts and stuff, and Michael — as some actors do go out on the floor with a mask on — Michael put a mask on and lined up for his own Scott Pilgrim Experience in disguise," director Edgar Wright told MTV News.
Cera corroborated the story, and sounded like he enjoyed himself thoroughly. Read More...

"Scott Pilgrim Vs. The World" has arrived! Well... almost. Before the film officially hits theaters, director Edgar Wright and the cast brought the project's cast before an assembled Comic-Con audience to offer up some thoughts about the much-anticipated adaptation of Bryan Lee O'Malley's comic book series.
Here's a full report:
- Edgar Wright joked about following Sly Stallone's Expendables. "We have 13 guests coming out but I don't think all of them will equal one Lundgren."
- Wright said he first encountered SP while doing the press tour for "Shaun of the Dead" - "It was love at first sight."
- Bryan Lee O'Malley was introduced with a video montage contrasting clips from the film with art from the books. Each successive person was introduced with film clips as well. Read More...

With just under a month before "Scott Pilgrim Vs. The World" kicks its way into movie theaters, a new clip shows a decidedly different side of the film than we've seen to date.
Comic Alliance debuted the new footage (but doesn't let you embed the video) which focuses on the love triangle between Scott (Michael Cera), Ramona Flowers (Mary Elizabeth Winstead) and the aptly named, Knives Chau (Ellen Wong).
While the clip doesn't offer much in the way of new footage, it does depict Scott's attempt to decide between Ramona and Knives before admitting that he sees a future with Ramona "with jetpacks." Read More...
The marketing team behind "Scott Pilgrim vs. The World" already set up a system to give out customized Bryan Lee O'Malley-esque avatars. When Comic-Con rolls around in a couple of weeks, however, Michael Cera and Edgar Wright will reportedly be making real-life personalized T-shirts across the street from the convention center.
Beginning on Thursday, July 22, Cera, Wright, Mary Elizabeth Winstead and Anna Kendrick will be taking turns operating a "make-your-own-T-shirt stand" somewhere in or near the Hilton Gaslamp, according to The Hollywood Reporter. The promotion will be a part of a campaign called "Scott Pilgrim vs. Comic-Con" that also includes a DJ room and likely many other bells and whistles promoting the movie's August 13 release date.

A new international poster for "Scott Pilgrim Vs. The World" has arrived online, sporting the tagline "Get The Hot Girl. Defeat Her Evil Exes. Hit Love Where It Hurts."
Premiering over at Empire Online, the new poster features Scott, Ramona, and all seven evil exes. It also makes the wait until August 13 that much more difficult.
Don't worry, though, there's a lot you can do to kill time between now and then — starting with a few more minutes of ogling the new poster. Read More...
A new international trailer for "Scott Pilgrim Vs. The World" has arrived online, and it's pretty safe to say that the trailer is so sweet that I needed a shot of insulin after watching it.
Originally posted on director Edgar Wright's blog, the new "Scott Pilgrim" trailer features more footage of Scott (Michael Cera), Ramona Flowers (Mary Elizabeth Winstead), and the rest of their gang, as well as all of the evil exes. there's an extra-awesome scene at the very end featuring an exchange between vegan rocker Todd Ingram (Brandon Routh) and Scott.
Wright has also provided a list of the tracks featured in the new trailer, including "Big Ideas" by LCD Soundsystem, "2 Kindsa Love" by Jon Spencer Blues Explosion, "It’s Getting Boring By The Sea" by Blood Red Shoes, and "Invaders Must Die" by The Prodigy. Read More...
We've seen clips from "Scott Pilgrim Vs. The World," images of the cast in costume, and even some footage from the extra-awesome "Scott Pilgrim" video game. But the one question everyone still wants to know is: Will it be anything like the books?
In an interview with MTV News, director Edgar Wright offered an answer to that very question, and described the collaborative process with "Scott Pilgrim" creator Bryan Lee O'Malley.
"We've worked very closely with the original author, Bryan Lee O'Malley," Wright told MTV News. "It's a different version of the story in a way, and we tried to structure it so it works more as a movie, and he's been very much involved in that process. In fact, on a couple of occasions, he's rewritten scenes that we've done, which is great." Read More...
Last week, we showed you some screenshots from the upcoming "Scott Pilgrim vs. The World" video game. While those were certainly nice to look at, there's really nothing quite like gazing upon the real thing, is there?
Sadly, the game is still a few months away from release and there are no playable demos to speak of. There are, however, two new videos for the "Scott Pilgrim" game that have found their way online — and, unsurprisingly, they are glorious.
Hitting the Playstation Network in August and Xbox Live at some point down the line, the "Scott Pilgrim" game promises a 4-player co-op mode, rock battles and all of the side-scrolling beat-'em-up video game action that was so customary during the '80s and '90s. Read More...
The seven evil exes Scott Pilgrim must battle to win the heart of Ramona Flowers get the focus in a new set of posters promoting director Edgar Wright's "Scott Pilgrim Vs. World."
Posted over at Spanish-language site CinePremiere, the six posters (the Katayanagi twins share a poster) each offer a nice profile of the opponents Michael Cera's character will face in the much-anticipated film — including a great shot of final ex Gideon Graves (played by Jason Schwartzman).
"Scott Pilgrim Vs. The World" hits theaters August 13. Read More...
