The Scott Pilgrim vs. The World Blu-ray has been out for over a week now and, chances are, you’ve already burnt it out. The visuals look insane, the sound blows out your speakers and the special features highlight how much love and care went into the project. It’s an awesome disc. But, now that you own it and have watched it all, what’s next? It sits on your shelf. Sure you’ll revisit it every once in a while, but how do you spruce up your old Blu-ray? How about with not one, not two, but THREE different downloadable covers?
The first one you may have seen already. It’s an awesome, original Nintendo inspired, Blu-ray insert by artist Adam Lowe which Edgar Wright tweeted about and Collider posted last week. The second two are personally autographed inserts that I got signed at Amoeba Records in Hollywood, CA, each slightly different from the first. Each is signed by Aubrey Plaza, Mae Whitman, Satya Bhabha, Anna Kendrick, Michael Cera, Bryan Lee O’Malley, Brandon Routh, Mary Elizabeth Winstead, Mark Webber, Johnny Simmons, Jason Schwartzman and Edgar Wright. Download all three, and read the story behind them, after the jump. Read More »
When two of the biggest film geek directors in the world sit down to chat, it’s always something to behold and that’s exactly what happened this past Monday at one of the numerous sold out screenings of Scott Pilgrim vs. The World in anticipation of its Blu-ray release on November 9. This particular screening took place at the Egyptian Theater in Hollywood CA, which is literally 3 blocks from my front door. And though the proximity was a huge plus, as was the opportunity to see the awesome film on the big screen once again, the biggest reason for my attendance was that Guillermo del Toro would be interviewing co-writer and director Edgar Wright as well as Scott Pilgrim creator Bryan Lee O’Malley after the film. As an added surprise, several cast members including Mary Elizabeth Winstead, Johnny Simmons and Satya Bhabha came out to help introduce the film while Scott Pilgrim himself, Michael Cera, hung out after to take part in the Q&A.
We posted a few clips of this earlier in the week, but if you have an hour and a half, the whole Q&A is now online and is extremely entertaining. Besides all the basic stories, there’s a simple joy in watching how Del Toro and Wright interact with each other, not to mention the hilarious commentary that Cera provides. I’m so glad you can now all get to experience what I did. Check it out after the jump. Read More »

Which movies and television shows does Michael Cera recommend? The following comes from Intervals of Awesome:
My cousin, Harvey, randomly ran into Michael Cera at a London coffeeshoppe. Cera and Harvey hit it off and ended up having a 2 hour conversation over lunch. Cera wrote a list of stuff Harvey should see. I didn’t believe this story 100% until I got a hold of the list (which is v. good and everyone should see these films/shows) As Harvey’s most media-saavy relative, I’m helping him by lending/finding these movies/shows for him. This made his London trip.

Michael Cera and Jason Schwartzman have been busy traveling the country to promote their latest film, Scott Pilgrim vs. The World, which hits theaters later this week. But it doesn’t seem to be the typical press tour filled with canned short snippet interviews. In Atlanta, Cera and Schwartzman took over for the local weatherman, and during a junket interview for Metacafe, an unexpected guest interrupts the interview - Zach Galifianakis. Watch both videos now embedded after the jump.

Despite critical and audience acclaim coming out of the surprise screening at Comic-Con, we’ve heard that some people still don’t want to see Edgar Wright‘s Scott Pilgrim vs. The World. Not because it doesn’t look good, but because audiences have grown tired of Michael Cera (but yet, they don’t mind that Bill Murray plays the same character in almost every film). Cera’s face is even missing from the the film’s posters, as Pilgrim is jamming out with his head down. Many have wondered if this was a calculated move by Universal Pictures, or if it is just a coincidence. /Film reader ????????????? ? has found a new television spot marketed towards mainstream audiences that has us convinced it was definitely a calculated decision. Watch this new television spot after the jump.

Cool Posts From Around the Web:
A few weeks ago I got news of a pretty cool little project: as part of the promotional efforts for Scott Pilgrim vs the World, Universal approached [adult swim] about making something related to the film. The idea concocted by the folks at the network was to animate a piece of one of Bryan Lee O’Malley‘s graphic novels that didn’t end up in Edgar Wright‘s movie.
Universal, Wright and O’Malley all got behind the idea, and the result is a four-minute animated short that illustrates the beginning of the friendship between Scott Pilgrim and Kim Pine. I got a look at the nearly-completed short during Comic Con, and now we can show you a clip from the finished project.
