Update: DVD & Bluray release of the movie: November 9, 2010
Scott Pilgrim’s Finest Hour (volume 6) is already out (go buy it along with volumes 1-5) but there’s even more to look forward to! The video game (which looks to be a fun throwback to the beatemup genre) developed by Ubisoft Montreal will be released August 10 for PS3 (& apparently later on Xbox 360). Soon after the the movie adaptation Scott Pilgrim vs the World (which has Ellen Wong whom I believe is Canadian as Knives Chau) will begin its theatrical run on August 13.
Who is Scott Pilgrim? He’s the star of a series of graphic novels that follow his life which goes all out of whack when he meets a mysterious girl named Ramona Flowers. Scott is instantly smitten by her but in order to date her he must defeat her 7 evil exes. Created by Korean Canadian artist Bryan Lee O’Malley, the series is drawn in a manga inspired style and features plenty of video game and music in-jokes and related humour. It’s a fabulous series that can be laugh out loud funny with a group of characters whom are so entertaining you wish they were your friends too.
