Yes, it's Scott Pilgrim Day everybody, so there's going to be quite a bit of Scott Pilgrim posts coming your way! Next up is a look at Adult Swim's animated short titled Scott Pilgrim vs the Animation that they made in promotion of its arrival in theaters today (go see it!). And thanks to SlashFilm for first uncovering it. It's kind of a prologue to the movie, showing Scott when he was 16 years old in high school and his early dating history, which is then part of his character in the movie. He also gets to fight a Boss Battle which was awesome. Check this out, it's a great way to get you in the mood to see Scott Pilgrim this weekend. Enjoy!
Watch Adult Swim's new short Scott Pilgrim vs the Animation:
Scott Pilgrim vs. the World is directed by brilliant British filmmaker Edgar Wright, of cult classics Shaun of the Dead and Hot Fuzz previously. The screenplay was co-written by Edgar Wright and actor Michael Bacall and is based on the Oni Press comic book series of the same name. The story follows a Canadian boy named Scott Pilgrim (Michael Cera) who must defeat his new girlfriend's (Mary Elizabeth Winstead) seven evil exes in order to win her heart. We've been following this since it was announced and as a fan of the comic books, I'm very excited. Universal is bringing Scott Pilgrim vs. the World to theaters everywhere on August 13th!
