Scott Pilgrim vs. The World

How awesome was the teaser trailer for Edgar Wright‘s Scott Pilgrim vs. The World? I know I’ve watched it at least six times now. I’m surprised at how many cool visuals Edgar and Universal were able to cram into under 90 seconds. There is certainly a lot of cool visuals which are worth pressing the pause button to examine at length. Check out all 66 screencaps, after the jump. Click on through to see the images in high (near 2000 pixels wide) resolution.

With The Twilight Saga: New Moon set to hit theaters this week, it seems like a lot of celebrities have been getting into the New Moon parody business. After the jump you will find videos featuring Brandon Routh (Superman Returns), Martha Macisaac (Becca from Superbad), Aubrey Plaza (Funny People, Mystery Team) and Conan O’Brien.

There is a bunch of television news going on today, so I thought I’d put together a little round up. After the jump, I have information on ABC’s V being shut down, Brandon Routh joining Chuck, and confirmation and information of Summer Glau in Dollhouse.

Yet another rusty nail has been driven into my hopes and dreams the coffin of a potential Brian Singer Superman Returns sequel. Talking to Omelete during a Scott Pilgrim set visit, Brandon Routh has admitted that his multi-movie contract with Warners Superman franchise has lapsed. Their original story is in Portuguese, but my IT-abetted attempt at a translation will follow after the break… with a little bonus ‘good news’ about Routh’s upcoming picture Dead of Night.

Cool Posts From Around the Web:


Fresh back to their news-minting computers from a two day trip to New Orleans and the set of Dead of Night, Shock Till You Drop have posted the first image of Brandon Routh as the film’s hero, Dylan Dog. I’ve excerpted it above, but real fans will want to see his shirt collar (for reasons that may become clear as you read on). Over at Movieweb, meanwhile, they have the first picture of Sam Huntington as Marcus, Dylan’s undead sidekick who I don’t recall from the few reads I ever managed to steal of the original books when I was working in a comics shop.

For those not up on the euro-comics, Dylan is the eponymous lead of Tiziani Sclavi‘s horror comics. He’s a kind of horror detective, often referred to as a nightmare investigator, and he’s always running into ghouls and ghosts and hairy, gory, goopy things. In the comic he lives in London but for the film he’s been relocated. Indeed, the first line of the screenplay reads “The unmistakable skyline of New York City”.

Taye Diggs Cast in Dead of Night

Casting is finally starting to come together on the Dylan Dog live-action adaptation Dead of Night. Brandon Routh has been attached to the project for a while now, and just recently it was revealed that Sam Huntington would be playing Groucho, Dylan Dog’s sidekick. Shock has just learned that Taye Diggs will be playing the main villain of the film, the leader of a group of vampires. TMNT director Kevin Munroe will be making his live-action feature debut with the adaptation.

Based on the Italian comic book which was first published in 1986, and later brought to the United States by Dark Horse Comics, the film tells the story of a penniless nightmare investigator who specializes in the supernatural and wears a trademark red shirt, black jacket, and blue jeans. Dark Horse has released seven English volumes of the comic, and a new 680 page volume is being planned to tie in with the film.

You might not know who Aubrey Plaza is right now, but you will soon enough. The Upright Citizen’s Brigade comic was featured in the Sundance comedy hit Mystery Team and has co-starring roles in Judd Apatow’s Funny People and Edgar Wright‘s Scott Pilgrim vs. The World. Speaking of which, it has been quite a while since we last posted an update on the comic book adaptation. Today, Wright posted the first photo of Plaza (seen above), who plays Julie Powers, the obnoxious on-off-on-again girlfriend of Stephen Stills, the lead singer and guitarist of Scott’s band, Sex Bob-omb, and Stacey Pilgrim’s (Anna Kendrick) coffee shop co-worker. And guess what? You can see the first photo of the band rehearsing after the jump, as well as a photo from and their rivals — The Clash At Demonhead.

schwartsman pilgrim q

Scott Pilgrim vs. The World was included in Jason Schwartzman‘s upcoming screen credits buried somewhere in a Variety article last week. The film mention was quickly removed from the website with no correction notice included. Rumor had it that Schwartzman might be playing the ultimate 7th evil boyfriend, Gideon Gordon Graves in the film. While others believe that it was just an error on the Hollywood tradepaper’s part. But today director Edgar Wright released this mysterious photo on his myspace blog of one of the cast members holding up a question mark (which is sorta shaped like the number 7).

Update: /Film reader Craig M confirms that “Jason Schwartzman was spotted in Toronto yesterday with Michael Cera, so I think it’s a pretty reasonable to assume he is in the movie. The film is being shot here and I believe the cast is meeting up for script read throughs.”

Discuss: Who is that behind the blinds? Is that the previously unannounced Jason Schwartzmen? Or is it the confirmed supporting cast member Brandon Routh (Superman Returns), who plays the third Evil Ex, a rocker with vegan psychic powers? Looks like Schwartzman to me. Larger photo after the jump. Leave your guesses in the comments below.

DC Contenders

Batman, Catwoman, Darkseid, Deathstroke, Flash, Green Lantern, Joker, Lex Luthor, Shazam, Superman, Wonderwoman
