Director: Edgar Wright
An epic of epic epicness.
Scott Pilgrim, bass-guitarist for garage band Sex Bob-omb, has just met the girl of his dreams. But as it turns out, dating her means dealing with her excess baggage and vanquishing a volatile line-up of super-powered foes. To win the heart of his one true love Scott has to defeat her seven evil exes - who are on their way to kill him.
Genre-smashing filmmaker Edgar Wright (Hot Fuzz, Shaun of the Dead) tells the amazing story of one romantic slacker's quest to power up with love in Scott Pilgrim Vs. The World, a super-powered rom-com based on the comic series by Bryan Lee O'Malley and featuring Michael Cera (Juno, Superbad) as the unlikely eponymous badass.
