Thankfully, YouTube user genrocks has done all of the heavy lifting for our walk down memory lane by putting together this expertly edited and mixed "Filmography 2010" video compilation of 270 of 2010's movies, including clips from Black Swan, Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 1, Iron Man 2, Scott Pilgrim vs. The World, The Social Network, Despicable Me, Kick-Ass, Jackass 3D and many, many more great movie moments.

Based on the buzz surrounding the movie at this year's San Diego Comic-Con, director Edgar Wright's adaptation of the Scott Pilgrim comic book series by Bryan O'Malley starring Michael Cera and Mary Elizabeth Winstead seemed destined to be a huge hit. However, Scott Pilgrim vs. The World failed to cover its production costs, even with international ticket sales. In a recent interview with MTV, Wright explained why Scott Pilgrim was a hard sell to a broader audience. what did wright have to say about Scott Pilgrim ? Posted 11.18.10 by BrentJS
Writer/director Edgar Wright's latest movie, Scott Pilgrim vs. The World, opens today and yet another new clip has appeared online, courtesy of MTV. Based on Bryan Lee O'Malley's graphic novel, Scott Pilgrim follows Michael Cera as a fledgling musician who falls for the girl of his dreams (Mary Elizabeth Winstead), and is forced into kung fu battle with her seven "evil" exes. Yesterday's clip showed Cera getting dating advice from his roommate (Kieran Culkin), and today's clip shows a telephone confrontation between Cera and the seventh "evil" ex, Gideon Graves (Jason Schwartzman) that likely leads to the final fight sequence.

Enough with the comic book movies featuring athletic, rubber-encased millionaires and teenagers granted superpowers. We're happy to see this year's release of two comics-turned-movies featuring humbler guys, more ordinary guys, guys just trying to cope in extraordinary circumstances. And as coincidence (or evil marketing genius?) would have it, we have the DVD release of one of them just in time for the theater release of one of the other.

Writer-director Edgar Wright's (Hot Fuzz) latest movie, Scott Pilgrim vs. The World, opens tomorrow and Universal is making one final marketing push by unleashing a plethora of new promotional videos. Based on the popular Scott Pilgrim indie comic book by Bryan Lee O'Malley, the movie follows slacker musician Scott Pilgrim (Michael Cera) as he tries to win the affections of the girl of his dreams, Ramona Flowers (Mary Elizabeth Winstead) by battling his way through her seven "evil" exes in video-game inspired combat. Equal parts comedy and action movie, with a healthy portion of rock-and-roll sprinkled throughout, Wright's adaptation breaks the mold of what a "comic book movie" is supposed to be. watch all of the videos >> Posted 08.12.10 by BrentJS
There hasn't been this much fanboy excitement about a movie since director Matthew Vaughn's Kick-Ass opened back in April. Does Scott Pilgrim vs. The World deliver? And do any haters just not get it?

"...Scott Pilgrim rocks."— Nick Schager, Slant Magazine
"You don't have to be dazzled or tickled by the movie, or get every joke, to be touched by it..."— Robert Wilonsky, Village Voice
"...blends the styles of videogames, sitcoms and comicbooks for a mostly hollow, high-energy riff on the insecurities of young love ... though anyone over 25 is likely to find director Edgar Wright's adaptation of the cult graphic novel exhausting..."— Peter Debruge, Variety
"...one of those movies where watching the fast-paced and hysterical trailer might be superior on several levels to sitting through the entire damn film."— Andrew O'Hehir, Salon
"...a discouragingly limp movie in which nothing is at stake."— Kirk Honeycutt, Hollywood Reporter
To coincide with Scott Pilgrim vs. The World's upcoming August 13 release, Universal has released a variety promotional items for the movie, which stars Michael Cera as a slacker musician who falls for the woman of his dreams (Mary Elizabeth Winstead) but must defeat her 7 "evil" exes in order to date her. The second "evil ex" is Lucas Lee (Chris Evans), a former pro-skater-turned-movie star, and a portion of the battle between Cera and Evans (and his many stunt doubles) was documented in a clip of the movie released in June. A variety of fake movie posters featuring Evans as Lee have been released, including Let's Hope There's a Heaven which reads "Kiss me. I'm dying." Then there's Action Doctor which reads "The good news is you're going to live. The bad news is he's going to kill you!"
Edgar Wright responded to the posters' release via his Twitter page.

Start the rumour. ACTION DOCTOR will be my next project.
The Expendables and Scott Pilgrim vs. The World are heading toward a date with box office destiny when both movies open on August 13, but before that fateful day dawns, the promotional materials for both have been fighting it out online. Round One saw the promotional posters duke it out, while Round Two saw a paltry amount of Expendables photos go up against a plethora of Scott Pilgrim set-visit interviews. Round Three saw two new trailers fight for who was best, with Scott Pilgrim claiming its third straight victory. A variety of resources, including a Youtube invasion are fighting for a last-minute Round Four takedown. MORE >> Posted 08.04.10 by Ryan
Two new clips have been released for Scott Pilgrim vs. The World, director Edgar Wright's adaptation of the Scott Pilgrim comic book series by Bryan O'Malley. Equal parts romantic teen comedy and frenetic video game-inspired action movie, Scott Pilgrim follows the title character (Michael Cera), a slacker in a bad rock band, as he attempts to win the love of Ramona Flowers (Mary Elizabeth Winstead), a delivery girl with some serious baggage.
In the first clip, Ramona explains that Scott will have to defeat her seven "evil" exes in combat if they are to continue dating, but all Scott hears is "dating." Watch it here, now >> Posted 07.27.10 by BrentJS
Those that attended the Comic-Con panel for the upcoming comic book adaptation Scott Pilgrim vs. The World were treated to one of the most celebrated panels so far. Director Edgar Wright moderated the discussion which featured cast members Brandon Routh, Kieran Culkin, Jason Schwartzman and Michael Cera wearing a Captain America costume (Scott Pilgrim costar, and Captain America lead Chris Evans was not in attendance). Even Simon Pegg and Nick Frost jumped onstage until Wright corrected himself, saying he misread the cue card and that the two actors do not appear in the movie. Then Wright asked the audience: "Would you people like to follow me to the theater right now to watch the film?"
While we can't be as generous, MTV does have a new clip, which is at least one minute of a very anticipated movie. Watch the clip here >> Posted 07.23.10 by Ryan
