There are three main reasons why I’m mega excited about this upcoming film “Scott Pilgrim vs The World”
1. I’m a big fan of Michael Cera’s acting. He will be forever typecast as a nerdy, inept with women, malnourished youth, even when he turns 77. Since his work on TV series “Arrested Development” through to star turns in “Juno”, “Superbad” and most recently “Youth in Revolt” his performances have induced the best kind of cringing, awkward laughter (I am of course ignoring “Year One”).
2. I’m a big fan of Edgar Wright’s directing. He is the mastermind behind the success of Simon Pegg and Nick Frost starting with directing and producing the mega TV series “Spaced” with them before moving onto “Shaun of the Dead” and more recently “Hot Fuzz”. Scott Pilgrim will be Edgar’s first film with a sizeable budget so lets hope he doesn’t get lost with all the cash money.
3. The story. A lot of people have that nagging feeling when they enter a relationship about their partners ex’s. Scott, however, not only has to meet all the of his beloved’s exe’s but has to defeat them all and they have superpowers. I hope she’s worth it dude! Ha!
