Scott Pilgrim 日本に来る!

That’s right. ‘Scott Pilgrim’ is finally coming to Japan. As are myself and Michael Cera who are flying out to Tokyo next week to promote.

Hoping to see our Japanese colleagues on the movie while we are there; master Keigo Oyamada of Cornelius fame and the twins brothers Shota & Keita Saito who play the Katayanagis.

My last trip to Tokyo promoting ‘Hot Fuzz’ with Simon Pegg was extremely memorable, so I can’t wait to come out again. Japanese press trips are the best.

Here is the Japanese poster and alternate title too; Behold ‘Scott Pilgrim Vs The League of Evil Exes.’

And check below for the literal translation of the Japanese text on the poster. That, my friends, is one hell of a tagline. Sold.

すぐに来る!

  1. I have a feeling that this movie will do much better in Japan, people over there obsess easily and in case you haven’t seen any of their recent media; love this kind of stuff to death.

  2. Maybe it’s just me. But don’t the posters seem to be getting better and better with each Regional Release?

    If Universal had a face, I would punch it… based on how long this baby’s taken to come out in the one market where it’s going to absolutely kick the frame in.

    Go forth and shake the pillars of heaven, Edgar.

  5. Do you know if the cinema release has an English or Japanese voicetrack? I hope it resonates with the Japanese, especially with the Otaku community as then you can merchandise everything about the movie. Blu-Rays, DVD’s, Manga, Figues, T-Shirts, costumes, cup noodles!

    • Phil Knall says:

      Only very few movies ever get dubbed here (top blockbusters and kids’ movies). Scott Pilgrim will be available subtitled only.

  6. The whole movie has a vibe to it that I think the Japanese will be very loving towards. Hope it does well!

    “Love-Battle-Action-Comedy” is a hell of a way to sell it in English too. I also would like to win Game and Rock’n Roll. Cool girlfriend I got.

    I don’t know if this has ever been asked (has to have and I probably missed it or hadn’t seen it) but have you ever had to do anything crazy ridiculous to win someone’s heart Edgar?

    Hey Edgar, completely unrelated and I know I probably won’t receive an answer, but anyway. I have two questions, 1. Are you producing/executive producing Attack The Block, i’ve been researching it, and found different answers, IMDb says no, The Big Talk website says yes, Film4 also says no. are you able to clear any of that up? and finally, once you’ve finished the Ant-Man rewrites, will you be directing that next or possibly writing The Worlds End with Simon as you said was a possibility in the Digital Spy interview??

    Thats all, i don’t think you’ll answer, but it was worth a shot :)

    This movie probably will do very well in Japan.

  32. Awesome, I look forward to seeing you on TV eating food and yelling “Umai” on a show hosted by Smap.

  33. What an awesome poster.

    One complaint, I don’t like how they switched to a plumtree shirt, just cause I hate the trend of photoshopping different clothes on actors on movie posters. It robs it of character and authenticity for me.

  34. Casshern says:

    I bet the Japanese would love this, with the whole video game fighting!

  38. Brian Fowler says:

    That poster may replace my Buffy Tales cover desktop. Awesome.

  39. Soooooooo is it being subbed or dubbed? I’d love to know who they cast if it’s dubbed in Japanese :) I wonder how fans of the Saito twins are gonna feel about their lack of lines XD

  48. Ahhh, I just shipped a few Scott Pilgrim Blu-rays to friends residing in Osaka a few weeks ago.
