Scott Pilgrim vs. The World‘s Honest Trailer Reminds Us All to Re-Read the Source Material

There are a few reasons why the movie version of Scott Pilgrim vs. The World did not work as well as the comic books, most of which make it into this Honest Trailer send-up. Even the Screen Junkies' jokesters have to admit that this movie's fun, though, provided you fit within its extremely niche target demographic.

Cauldron cakes make you fat?!

What if Harry Potter had been adapted from a Bryan Lee O'Malley graphic novel instead of J.K. Rowling's epic saga? We'd probably have gotten a series of films that look something like this. I'm in Lovegoods with this trailer.

Scott Pilgrim is Back in Glorious Full Color

Here's something that will make you feel old: Scott Pilgrim Vol. 1: Scott Pilgrim's Precious Little Life came out eight years ago. Created by Bryan Lee O'Malley, the comic series was a great success, landing the character a feature film. However, O'Malley's art has remained in the original black and white in the subsequent reprints of the books. That will be changing this August when Oni Press debuts a color edition of the books called the Scott Pilgrim Color Hardcover, which is pretty much just what it sounds like.

6 of the Coolest Multi-Platform Franchises Since 2000

The new millennium has been mighty kind in terms of fruitful franchises. Some older, niche works have received revitalizations while other equally niche works have risen up to help fill out the greater cornucopia that is, shall we say, geekdom. But which of these newcomers really has the strength to stand up over time like the old standbys? That’s the real question here. So, here’s the criterion: To be considered, the franchise must have some kind of multimedia, multi-platform presence. Basically, each franchise must have three different forms of media involved, be it comics, manga, film, video games, anime series, or something similar to those listed. Call it the equivalent of the triple threat; some franchises have the ability and some do not. All of these have that quality in spades.

Toddler is Kim Pine, Scott Pilgrim’s Drummer [Video]

This little girl, captured here adorably yelling "We are Sex Bob-Omb!" apparently wants to be Kim Pine when she grows up.

Unsure of what little girls want to be when they grow up, Geekosystem jumped into the field and surveyed a four-year-old girl, who shed light on the subject by telling us she wants to be either a mommy, a teacher, or a Christmas tree when she grows up. Really. She's awesome.

Your Fears About Hollywood Overreacting to Scott Pilgrim’s Bad Box Office May Be Justified

With a weekend box office of $10.5 million, Scott Pilgrim vs. the World, which cost about $60 million to make, had the alarmingly bad opening that fans feared it would. While a few (generally older) critics slammed it, it was really a stellar movie, and one needn't have read the graphic novels it's based on (I didn't) to appreciate it.

There are plenty of theories as to why such a buzzed-about, well-marketed, solid movie performed as weakly at the box office as it did: CinemaBlend surmises that it existed in a no-man's land, with people above 30 not 'getting' it, but people too far below 30 not 'getting' the retro gaming references either; it being a geek movie that most geeks don't actually relate to ("This is a movie about a slacker musician whose biggest problem is choosing which of the two hot girls he's dating he most wants to sleep with"); and, lastly, the 'everyone hates Michael Cera' hypothesis, which I don't entirely buy, but which is widespread enough that it has to be based on some reality.

In some respects, it doesn't matter why; what matters is the aftermath. Hollywood's backlash against 'geek' properties without a hit-you-over-the-head mainstream hook could be just as bad as we fear.
