The UK release of Scott Pilgrim vs. The World is still over a month away, but that doesn’t mean there aren’t a million exciting Pilgrim nuggets floating about waiting to be condensed into a Thursday blog post. So here they are:
Frequent Wright-collaborator and VJ-extraordinaire Osymyso has been hard at work making seven video remixes of the film, which have been drip-released across the last week as exclusives on a variety of not-as-good-as-Ultra-Culture movie blogs. Rather than send any more traffic their way, I’ll direct you to this Youtube channel, which has all the remixes in glorious 1080p.
The sixth and final book in Bryan Lee O’Malley’s comic book series, entitled Scott Pilgrim’s Finest Hour, was released on Tuesday. You can get it on Amazon for slightly over a fiver.
Edgar Wright has touched down in San Diego for the annual blogosplosion that is Comic-Con. He’s promised ‘surprises’ for today’s big panel.
Track listings have now been confirmed for both the Soundtrack album and Nigel Godrich’s sure-to-be-amazing Original Score. Let us know if you can think of a way to force the August 23rd UK release date forward. In the meantime, you can listen to one of the tracks Beck wrote for Scott Pilgrim’s band Sex Bob-Omb here:
The Scott Pilgrim game is due for release on August 10th. You can watch a trailer for it here. I won’t say any more about it because I don’t really know about video games.
SEEING THE FUCKING THING
Tickets for the UK’s biggest and best Scott Pilgrim vs. The World preview, a.k.a. Ultra Culture Cinema #04, will go on sale soon. To be the first to find out, join the mailing list. It’s going to be ‘a night to remember’.
