Edgar Wright - Page 2
It's been talked about for years now, but as The Avengers decimates box office records around the world, is Edgar Wright offering another hint that we should expect the cinematic debut of Marvel's Smallest Hero of all before too long?With The Avengers having such a strong opening weekend in US theaters, Wright - perhaps best known for Shawn of the Dead and Hot Fuzz, the movies he co-wrote and directed with Simon Pegg, but someone who'll always have a special place in my heart for his amazing adaptation of Bryan Lee O'Malley's Scott Pilgrim a couple of years ago -- offered the following to his Twitter followers on Saturday morning:
Sure, it looks like an IKEA manual version of Spider-Man's origin, but any Marvel fan worth their salt would recognize the Ant-
Here about a year outside the Summer of Scott Pilgrim, most fans have settled their Scott Pilgrim vs. the World Blu-ray comfortably into their collections by now. Don't get too cozy, though, because T-Pain and Chris Brown's Scott Pilgrim homage-tastic new video for their "Best Love Song" collaboration is going to have you popping it right back into your player. Director Edgar Wright Tw
The reliably amazing The Art of the Title blog has published an uncommonly in-depth feature on the opening credits of Scott Pilgrim Vs. The World. Directed by Edgar Wright and created by design/animation outfit Shynola, the sequence is just the first in a memorable series of seamless mash-ups of graphic
From a Slimer with boobs to a "The Killing Joke" Barbara Gordon flashing her batarangs, we've been pretty resoundingly scarred by the often-insane "geek burlesque" trend. In the case of the Scott Pilgrim Vs. The World, however, a raunchy battle between evil ex Roxy Richter and Ramona Flowers seems plausible enough... if you're into slash fiction.Posted by Yo
It's not like there was any doubt before, but it can't hurt to say again that the best/craziest Scott Pilgrim fans are those from Toronto, the setting of Bryan Lee O'Malley's canonized indie comics opus. Locatio
Director Edgar Wright's "Scott Pilgrim vs. The World" is a critical success but so far a mixed success in terms of ticket sales, which is likely to raise a few eyebrows regarding his next reported comic book adaptation "Ant-Man," based on the Marvel Comics superhero scientist with the ability to shrink himself down to the size of an ant
"Scott Pilgrim vs. The World" finally arrives in theaters this week, and having seen it already, I can tell you that Chris Evans is absolutely glorious as Lucas Lee. With his tongue-in-cheek swagger and hilarious line delivery, Evans could easily shoulder a film or two with Lee in a starring role
With the August 13 release date of "Scott Pilgrim Vs. the World" just more than a week away, Universal Pictures is pulling out all the promotional stops to keep the movie on fankind's hivemind. Their latest effort, the SPvtW interactive trailer, combines a retro gaming aesthetic with an achievement-oriented fact-unlocking click quest
All things considered, I think it's fair to say that this year's San Diego Comic-Con was Scott Pilgrim's show.
Not only did the convention coincide with the release of the sixth and final graphic novel in Bryan Lee O'Malley's series, "Scott Pilgrim's Finest Hour," but there was an incredible amount of anticipation and promotion for Edgar Wright's film version, which hits theaters on August 13. The Bayfront Hilton was draped in a massive version of the poster that covered a good ten floors, buses were decked out in ads, "The Scott Pilgrim Experience" was happening across the street from the convention center -- you couldn't get away from it.Bigger than those, though, were the actual screenings of the film. Fans waited in line for hours for it, and as one of the perks of the Fourth Estate, I managed to get in and see it myself. The short version is that I thought it was great, but for the longer version, I've got my ten thoughts on the movie.
