It was a wise man who said that comic book movies function as $20 million advertisements for graphic novels…and in the case of the Scott Pilgrim series it is certainly true.

Scott Pilgrim and the Infinite Debate

So when the tale was written, SCOTT PILGRIM Vs THE WORLD ended up #5 at the box office with a disappointing $10.5 mil. This simple fact has caused ethnic wars everywhere on the internet. People ask, double rainbow-like, “What does it mean?” and argue over who is a fanboy, what is a fanboy, what is […]

It’s looking like SCOTT PILGRIM VS THE WORLD will come in at a disappointing #4 at this weekend’s box office, according to Nikki Finke, behind THE EXPENDABLES, EAT PRAY LOVE, and the returning THE OTHER GUYS. SPvsTW made an estimated $4.7 million on Friday for an $11 million opening. There’s a lot of analysis and […]

Wow, in a few short hours, SCOTT PILGRIM VS THE WORLD finally opens and Edgar Wright and Bryan Lee O’Malley can stop their incessant promotional wanderings over the face of the earth. In future years, this will always be known as “Scott Pilgrim Week,” a mystical, magical time of love and exploration and kung fu training.

So much has happened, is happening. Some linkie winkins. ABOVE — a super-amazing remake of the live-action SPvsTW trailer using the comics — wow, it really is just like the book.

Scott Pilgrim promo fever is hitting 105˚ in advance of next week’s San Diego Comic-Con, sure to be known in future years as “The Scott Pilgrim One.” To wit, various Twitter feeds have been capturing the progress of a giant Scott Pilgrim banner being erected over the Hilton Bayfront hotel. Yowsa.

Bryan Lee O’Malley tweets that SCOTT PILGRIM AND THE DEATHLY HALLOWS is finished, and debuting July 20th, with a midnight signing in Toronto to kick it off. And director Edgar Wright intro’d a NEW CLIP from SCOTT PILGRIM during last night’s MTV movie awards — important placement for the great summer hope.

Second SCOTT PILGRIM trailer debuts

You know, we’ve been expecting that this thing will be awesome, and this just confirms it, but seeing it all laid out like that makes us wonder if the movie going audience — which has recently shown itself to be pretty reactionary and unadventurous — will really except a teenaged romance comedy with lots of fighting. Either the girls will love the romance and the guys will love the fighting…or the girls will hate the fighting and the guys will hate the romance like they usually do. More to the point, can Hollywood successfully MARKET a movie that has crossover appeal?
