First Official Photo (Sort Of) from Edgar Wright's Scott Pilgrim
If you were following the shooting of Edgar Wright's Scott Pilgrim vs. the World at all earlier this year, you probably know that Wright has been running a photo blog on his website, updating it with new photos every single day. But until today, he's been keeping everything a secret and not revealing anything from the movie that shouldn't be seen yet. His latest photo is a photo of a photo - not as confusing as you'd think. Our friends at SlashFilm did a bit of Photoshop work on it and whipped up a straight-on version of this first real photo of the Scott Pilgrim cast as seen below. If you're a Scott Pilgrim fan, you definitely need to see this!
I immediately got a huge grin on my face looking at this because these characters finally look exactly like they do in Bryan Lee O'Malley's comic. 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 seven evil ex-boyfriends in order to win her heart. I can't freakin' wait to see a trailer for this soon as well!

The guy in the middle looks exactly like Patrick Fugit from Almost Famous.

Scott is more of brown hair and not as curly, I think he looks a little out of place but hey whatever I still will go see the movie and love it

Michael Cera, cringe, why is it suddenly cool, to hate him. I loathe everything he does, and Nick and Norah, was abysmal.

Michael Cera sucks ass. His roles are always the same and they aren't even funny. Movie's gonna blow.

How do you know the movie's going to blow? Just because one actor that *you* don't like is in it does not mean it's going to suck. The creator of the series has said numerous times that Michael Cera does a good job. What's funny and what's not isn't definitive. Believe it or not, some people like Carlos Mencia. You could at least say "I don't like Michael Cera and won't see this movie." Then you wouldn't sound like an ignorant ass-monkey. Oh, sorry, I almost started to sound like you. I'm certainly going to see this movie opening day and I'm sure as hell going to enjoy it.

oh snap blasterMastro. You just went there. I'm hella excited for this, it looks like the shizz. And I don't think it's gonna be like other Michael Cera movies. It's gonna be SCOTT PILGRIM. And Mary Elizabeth Winstead is way cute, whatchoo talkin' bout, crumb? Also, Stephen Stills is the balls. He's awesome.
