It’s been over 10 years since Scott Pilgrim vs the World arrived in theaters. In fact, the 10th anniversary should have been celebrated last year, but the coronavirus pandemic kept audiences mostly away from movie theaters. That’s why this year will see the theatrical re-release of Edgar Wright‘s adaptation of Bryan Lee O’Malley‘s graphic novel series in a never-before-seen version of the movie that has been recalibrated for Dolby Atmos and Dolby Vision, providing an audio visual experience for the movie that has never been better.

Get some more details about the series as well as the first batch of Stowaway images from Netflix below.

If you thought Pitch Perfect 3 was the last time the Barden Bellas would get back together make some aca-awesome a cappella music with their mouths, think again.
As the musical competition circuit announcers John Smith (John Michael Higgins) and Gail Abernathy-McKadden-Feinberger (Elizabeth Banks) so succinctly put it, “It seems that not even a quarantine could keep them from harassing us with another musical performance.” The Barden Bellas from across all three of the Pitch Perfect movies have gotten back together virtually, including Anna Kendrick and Hailee Steinfeld, to perform Beyoncé’s 2011 hit “Love On Top,” and it’s all for charity.

You thought Trolls World Tour was done making headlines? Think again, chumps. The animated sequel, which may end up as one of the most significant films in Hollywood history, is still generating some controversy – not from theater chains, this time, but from its own stars.
