Film: Scott Pilgrim vs. The World

Scott Pilgrim vs. The World is a 2010 film directed by Edgar Wright and based on the comic series Scott Pilgrim by Bryan Lee O'Malley. The film, like its source material, is about a twenty-something Toronto slacker named Scott Pilgrim who meets an American named Ramona Flowers, and must defeat her seven evil exes in order to date her. In a universe that acts like a real-life version of River City Ransom where there are combo meters, written sound effects spelled out in midair, points, and extra lives.

Since the comic was as yet unfinished during filming, the film moves in a slightly different direction to the comic, though core elements remain the same.

While the critics and audiences loved the film, it wasn't able to make back its budget in the box office market, more than likely due to the humor being targeted to a certain demographic. However, it fared far better in the home market.

Now with its own Shout Out page, as it was starting to take up a lot of room.
