The first "Scott Pilgrim Vs. The World" trailer hit the 'Net last week, and it's been all anyone can talk about since its arrival — especially Splash Page readers!
I asked you to send us your 140-character reviews of the trailer via Twitter, and now I've finally had a chance to round up a bunch of them to post on the site. Responses seemed to range from "pretty good" to "OMG!!! GREATEST TRAILER EVAH!!!" so it's safe to say that readers trended toward the positive when expounding on the highs and lows of our first look at Edgar Wright's "Scott Pilgrim" movie.
However, rather than try to summarize them, I've compiled a selection of some of my favorite responses from last week's reader-reaction survey. Read More...
The first official trailer for Edgar Wright's "Scott Pilgrim vs. the World" arrived online today, and to the surprise of absolutely nobody, it was a complete knockout.

After the jump, we've selected five of our favorite moments from the newly released trailer. After reading, make sure to head to the comments section and let us know what your favorite moments were! Read More...
I knew something was up when "Scott Pilgrim Vs. The World" director Edgar Wright posted a trio of mysterious messages on Twitter today.
"Wait. What's that? (looks into distance)," he wrote around 11 AM EST, adding just a few minutes later, "(squints) Ah. I guess it was just a mirage or something."
What he was hinting at was the debut of the "Scott Pilgrim" teaser trailer just a few minutes ago on Apple Movies. While we can't embed the trailer here for you (Boo to you, Apple! Boo!), we do have a few new images that were released along with it. Read More...

Before Scott Pilgrim battles the world, his finest hour will hit bookshelves.
Today, Oni Press released the cover of the final installment in Bryan Lee O'Malley's hit comic book series and announced that "Scott Pilgrim Vol. 6: Scott Pilgrim's Final Hour" will hit shelves on July 20, 2010.
The grand finale to the award-winning series will feature 248 pages of "evil-ex butt-kicking in the easily digestible digest format" and bring a conclusion to the story of Scott Pilgrim's fight against the seven evil-exes of Ramona Flowers. Read More...
With rave reviews from early screenings and an official release date in sight , director Edgar Wright's highly anticipated adaptation of "Scott Pilgrim vs. The World" has finally received its first theatrical poster.
[UPDATE: Official images of the poster can now be found on the "Scott Pilgrim" movie website.]
ComingSoon.net has posted the first glimpse of the poster from this year's ShoWest (currently taking place in Las Vegas, NV). The poster features Michael Cera's Scott Pilgrim playing his guitar, with the slogan "An epic of epic epicness."
Created in 2005 by Bryan Lee O'Malley, the "Scott Pilgrim" series has become one of the most popular independent comic book series of all time. The story follows Scott Pilgrim — "a slacker, hero, and a part-time bassist" — who must face the seven "evil exes" of his dream girl, Ramona Flowers. Read More...
Early screenings of "Scott Pilgrim vs. The World" have prompted nearly universally positive responses from fans, including the film's latest supporter: Kevin Smith. The "Cop Out" director is the latest to see "Scott Pilgrim" and, thankfully, he was very happy with what he saw.
"That movie is great," the filmmaker told The Film Stage. "It's spellbinding and nobody is going to understand what the f--- just hit them. I would be hard-pressed to say, 'he's bringing a comic book to life!' but he is bringing a comic book to life."
Smith went on to praise the cast of the film, including the "adorable" Ellen Wong as Knives Chau and Michael Cera as Pilgrim himself. Read More...
"Scott Pilgrim Vs. The World" hits theaters this August, and though we have yet to see the first trailer for the film, early reviews have been overwhelmingly positive — giving fans of Bryan Lee O'Malley's comic book series a lot to look forward to when Edgar Wright's live-action adaptation finally arrives.
We already know the film will feature some significant, creator-endorsed differences from its source material, so when MTV News caught up with Wright (one of our "10 Filmmakers to Watch In 2010"), we picked his brain about where the books and film will part ways, story-wise.
"I think Bryan O’Malley is a very smart guy, and he can understand what an adaptation is," said Wright. "He read every draft of [the script]. With the last draft, me and Michael Bacall sent him every 20 pages ... and so he pretty much understood that doing a straight adaptation of the books was kind of impossible." Read More...
The early word is out on "Scott Pilgrim vs. The World," director Edgar Wright's adaptation of Bryan Lee O'Malley's beloved comic book series, and the word is somewhere between "fantastic" and "awesome." Let's go with "fantawesome."
Universal held a test screening of "Scott Pilgrim" in New Jersey, yielding wildly enthusiastic reports from the fans lucky enough to attend. One Twitter user called the movie a "nerdgasm," while another remarked that it is "100% respectful to the books."
"I was lucky enough to see this awesome nerdfest of a flick known as Scott Pilgrim vs The World," wrote Tumblr user L2BT. "It was a lot of fun and Edgar Wright did an impressive job bringing the comic to the screen. Pilgrim is going to gain even more followers once this hits theatres in August. Kids are really going to geek out over this. Hard." Read More...
Scott Pilgrim better keep in shape, because his upcoming battle against the world now has an official August release date.
Universal Pictures has updated the release date for director Edgar Wright's "Scott Pilgrim vs. The World," based on the Oni Press graphic novel series by Bryan Lee O'Malley. The film is now set to bow in theaters on August 13, 2010, featuring Michael Cera in the title role alongside a host of other notable actors including Brandon Routh, Jason Schwartzman, Chris Evans and Mary Elizabeth Winstead.
Moreso than most movies, "Scott Pilgrim Vs. The World" has us feeling terribly conflicted. On one hand, we're such fans of the source material for Edgar Wright's adaptation that we're eager to know as much as possible (and as soon as possible) about how it's being brought to life on the screen. On the other hand, we don't want to ruin the surprises Wright has planned for us.
That's why we can't help but ask the "Scott Pilgrim" cast about the film whenever we get a chance — and to be honest, we're kind of relieved when they don't give away too much about the film. Take, for example, our recent conversation with actress Anna Kendrick, who plays Stacey Pilgrim:
"I've seen it. It's awesome," said Kendrick when asked if she's been one of the lucky few to have screened the film. "There's nothing to compare it to. It's like the energy from 'Ferris Bueller' and the action from 'Kill Bill.' It's amazing."
What do you think of Kendrick's description? Let us know in the comment section or on Twitter!
