The Lasting Legacy of Scott Pilgrim

Released in 2010, Scott Pilgrim vs the World was an adaptation of the popular graphic novel series by Bryan Lee O’Malley. The story followed Scott (Michael Cera), a 22-year-old slacker who begins dating mysterious new girl Ramona Flowers (Mary Elizabeth Winstead). He soon learns that Ramona has seven evil exes determined to keep her single forever and that he must defeat them in video game style brawls to continue being with her. Although the film was not a financial success, it quickly garnered a cult following and has since been considered an excellent comic book adaptation outside of the Marvel/DC paradigm and a worthy entry into director Edgar Wright’s filmography.
