'Scott Pilgrim vs The World' to be re-released in theaters, fans reminisce about the 'masterpiece' of a film
During a virtual watch party hosted by The Oscars, director and co-writer Edgar Wright hinted that the film will be re-released in theaters at some point, as part of a partnership with Dolby Cinema
Over the course of the decade, 'Scott Pilgrim vs The World' has acquired a sort of cult status, due to its quirky storyline, and its novel adaptation of the comics and the video game. As the film comes close to its ten-year anniversary in August, fans are going to relive the magic of the film again, as it will be re-released in theaters. During a virtual watch party hosted by The Oscars, 'Scott Pilgrim vs The World' director and co-writer Edgar Wright hinted that the film will be re-released in theaters at some point, as part of a partnership with Dolby Cinema. Wright tweeted, "If you thought watching Scott Pilgrim from home was great, wait until it's back @DolbyCinema, only in theatres! #DolbyVision #DolbyAtmos #ScottPilgrim #WatchWithTheAcademy."
Of course, everything is up in the air right now due to the coronavirus pandemic, which has stalled studio and television productions. Alison Pill, who played Kim Pine in the film, recently told ComicBook.com that owing to the sweep of the pandemic, talks of a reunion have been put on hold. "I don't know. Again, who knows now because everything's up in the air. If we have movie theaters to go back to, we'll see," she said. "But I know we were trying to get everybody together for the anniversary, because it would be fun to see everyone. That's a good group of people."
Michael Cera, who plays the titular character in the film, said he would be more than happy to meet his co-stars again. "For me, that 'well' would just mean being around that group again," Cera said. "It was such a great group. Fortunately, we all do get together and it really was like a great band or something and we all loved being around each other and that happens, obviously, less and less, but when the movie was coming out and even a few years after that, we were all hanging out quite a lot."
Fans are of course, thrilled and can't wait for this re-release. Some are waiting for the video game as well, on which the film was based. "Oh god Scott Pilgrim Vs the World turns 10 this year and the movie is being rereleased into theaters AND there's a potential remaster for the video game what the hell!," a fan wrote. "Sorry for all the retweets but Scott Pilgrim VS The World is my favorite movie of all time #WatchWithTheAcademy," a fan tweeted.
"Scott pilgrim vs the world is still a masterpiece and you’re wrong if you think otherwise," another fan wrote. "People really don’t understand how much of a phenomenal film Scott Pilgrim vs. The World is," a fan tweeted. "How wide will the theatrical re-release of Scott Pilgrim vs The World be?" another fan questioned.
Well, we think this should definitely be fun.
