Scott Pilgram is a twenty-something character created by Bryan Lee O'Malley. Scott Pilgrim, plays in a band, has close friends and occasionally dreams about a particularly pretty girl. Then one day he actually sees her at a party and that is when his troubles really start.
Pilgrim finds a great love and very great danger all at the same time. If he wants to stay with the girl of his dreams he has a near Herculean task to perform.
I love the premise of this story and am glad that Edgar Wright is helping to bring it to the big screen aided by some some solid and exciting talent. With it's blend of the mundane and the fantastic, Scott Pilgrim vs. the World looks as though it could be a funny, deeply entertaining film and a very good comic book adaptation too.
I'm looking forward to catching this one at the cinema.
