Scott Pilgrim vs. the World Q&A moderated by filmmaker Guillermo Del Toro | Los Angeles, 2010

You’ve seen the clips already, but here exclusively is the whole Q and A from Monday night’s Egyptian screening with me, Bryan Lee O’Malley, Michael Cera and the maestro Guillermo Del Toro moderating.

Forgive the age restriction, but I think that Guillermo may have helped break the record for number of f-bombs dropped in the promotion of a PG-13 movie.

For me this only adds to what is perhaps my favourite discussion of this movie.

So here is Scott Pilgrim Vs Guillermo Del Toro Uncut.

Enjoy!

    Dear Edgar Wright

    I’m from Germany and for a few days I watched your movie “Scott Pilgrim vs. the World”. It was a really fantastic movie. It seems now impossible in “Scott Pilgrim vs. the world” to be in an objective tone. I like the actors. Michael Cera’s Scott appeals to me. Kieran Culkin as Wallace is hilarious! Mary Elizabeth Winstead as Ramona – yeah, I lay on her feet. I have latest since Kate Winslets Clementine in “Eternal Sunshine Of The Spotless Mind” a weakness for blue-haired, reservedly mysterious women with a tinge of tragic-vulnerable. I can absolutely understand scott, for this girl I will do anything. For her, I would duel with super-vegans, power lesbians, Bollywood freaks, Japanese synth-twins, skateboarding Dudes and central-Berlin-people on life and death. Immediately and on the spot! Bring em on! But there’s something else. “Scott Pilgrim vs. the World” makes all these points, especially alongside one hundred percent correct: He grabs one on the heart. You feel transported back to the first real kiss. Not to the “one night stands” – for the first magical moment when everything was just right and you could even after drop dead. This moment carry the figures in the history, and bring him to the sound in the auditorium. Anyway, it was so to me. I’ve seen the film three times in the last two days. Please make a continuation! Michael Cera and Mary Winstead can fight against the ex-girlfriends from Scott.

    Sincerely

    You know you’ve created a masterpiece when Guillermo del Toro calls himself a huge fan of it.

    I really loved the movie- and even started reading the comics- are all promotions ending the 11th?
    Another ‘midnight’ screening would be so fun!

    im so jealous all the actors were here but not in toronto. still was super excited to meet edgar, bryan, and ellen tho.

  12. This makes me uncomfortable. My country got only 25 copies of scott pilgrim, which are only in one city. Mexico! No.1 videogames consumer in latin america, your neighbour and we are struggling to get a copy of the movie! Worst part? I wanted to pay my ticket, so you guys could get some of my money but… That money will have to end up in the hands of pirates who will get it for me. Don’t you hate that? How pirates are doing Universal’s work? So yeah, pretty much everyone in mexico is a motherfucker by now. :C

      I understand your concern. But to be honest, anyone in the world can order the BluRay or DVD. It’s not impossible to support the film.

      • Ceren says:

        It’s not impossible, indeed. Scott Pilgrim hasn’t even come to theaters in my country yet. I was lucky to be in London when it came to England. And since I won’t be seeing it in theaters, let alone on DVD, here in Turkey for quite some time, I ordered the DVD on Amazon.com :)

  14. Daniel Avila says:

    After they left, I got high fived by Johnny Simmons, Mary Elizabeth Winstead, Michael Cera (He used his head instead of his hand lol) and Byan Lee O’Malley http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CMkEbIji-xg

    Brandon Routh is over 30 Edgar, so err, ha!

  16. MCHartlaub says:

    Very insightful and helpful for my research on adaptation between the film and graphic novels. I was interested in the shifts on tone, the alternative ending, and how O’Malley and Wright worked together since the last installation of the novel was so close to the release date of the film. All three were touched on!

  17. NegaScott says:

    Excellent! I love this movie and everyone involved. Brilliant work. So cool to see Guillermo Del Toro get in on this movie lovefest. Can’t wait to see the Blu-ray (100 times) and all of the extra features.

    Please let this be on the DVD!!!

    Phantom of the Paradise is the greatest rock opera ever!!!

    I agree about the old Adam West Batman show. Yeah, you wouldn’t think their parents died and that’s why they became heroes, but it was fun and it brought a lot of people into the world of Batman, allowing them to look around and find their favorite version of the character and his world. And even though I prefer the darker versions of Batman and understand what that show did for the perception of comics for a long time, I can enjoy that show.

    And the only real way I’d be happy to see Shadow of the Colossus as a movie would be if del Toro did it. It’s my favorite game, and I don’t want them to mess it up as a movie. I do agree with him though. It’s such a rich experience, you’re better off playing that game then seeing the movie adaptation of it. Never have I experienced such a myriad of emotions while playing a video game.

    I kinda really want that to be a blurb on the box.

    Wow, I feel like I just wasted 3 days worth of converting and cursing at timed out uploads on my wimpy DSL connection. Oh well :) Here is my upload in case this one is ever taken down. http://goo.gl/ttE3e

    I agree, this Q&A will be difficult to top.

    • Ah, I should have known that you would be there (I didn’t think to check twitter). I flew in on Monday and out on Tuesday as well. I snagged 3 tickets when they went on sale and I even managed to talk a couple of friends to fly in and meet me.
