It’s been a couple of years since we first heard about the possibility of a film adaptation of Edgar Wright’s comic novel, Scott Pilgrim Vs. the World–the excitement driving us nearly to the point of pissing ourselves. Comic-novels-turned-feature-films go horribly wrong all the time, but with Wright so heavily involved, those expecting a different result this time around were not disappointed.
Released on DVD and Blu-Ray today, Scott Pilgrim Vs. the World stars Michael Cera as Scott Pilgrim, one lovesick puppy of a high school dude looking to defeat the seven evil exes of Ramona Flowers, the rainbow-tressed love of his life. The Blu-Ray and DVD are jam-packed with behind-the-scenes extras from the making of the special-effects-heavy adaptation, some of which we’ve gotten our mitts on:
Not only did the movie exceed most fans’ expectations, but the soundtrack is fairly legit, as well. For the indie-rock-influenced, check out songs by Beck, under the guise of Sex Bob-omb, the fictional band from the film, and Broken Social Scene.
Thanks to the Scott Pilgrim team, we’re giving away some awesome prize packages to celebrate the film’s release on DVD and Blu-Ray:
