We’ve got a full house here at Universal’s Scott Pilgrim vs. the World panel at Comic-Con 2010. Director Edgar Wright and graphic author Bryan Lee O’Malley, are joined by cast members Michael Cera, Mary Elizabeth Winstead, Ellen Wong, Alison Pill, Mark Webber, Kieran Culkin, Satya Bhabha, Brandon Routh, Jason Schwartzman, Mae Whitman, Anna Kendrick, and Aubrey Plaza to answer questions about the upcoming action-comedy that looks like it’s going to be as enjoyable as Kick-Ass! Here we go…
6:10 pm: Scott Pilgrim is about to start. They just showed the trailer and some behind the scenes footage.
6:11 pm: Edgar Wright just walked out. It looks like he got a haircut. Nothing big, just a nice trim. He said they have 13 guests coming out!
6:12 pm: Wright is moderating the panel and he’s asking himself a question. Bryan Lee O’Malley just walked out onto the stage.
6:15 pm: Wright just made a major announcement (sarcasm) “On August 13th Scott Pilgrim will be released in 2D. At regular ticket prices. How do you people feel about watching a film without sunglasses on!?”
6:16 pm: Here comes Anna Kendrick, Aubrey Plaza and Kieran Culkin. Nerdgasm!!
6:18 pm: Wright’s asking them how much they disapprove of Pilgrim‘s actions in the film on a scale of 1 to 10, they said 5, 7, and 10 respectively.
6:19 pm: Brandon Routh, Jason Schwartzman, and Mae Whitman have taken the stage. Why does Jason look like he’s about to solve a mystery? He has a huge mustache here! Old school Sherlock Holmes anyone?
6: 23 pm: It’s time for Michael Cera. He just walked out on stage dressed like Captain America! lol
6:27 pm: Brandon Routh was just asked which did he like better, playing Superman or a villain. He said the Man of Steel, then the fan tried to follow up with another question about him guest starring on “Smallville” and Wright playfully interrupted her and said, “No second questions!” She slowly backed away from the mic. She knows what’s good for her.
6:31 pm: It’s really hard to take Cera seriously on stage with this costume on.
6:32 pm:Cera says he wants the Arrested Development movie to get made. He said, “I think it’s going to.”
6:32 pm: It’s official Jason Schwartzman looks like Ringo Starr! Walk Hard got it right!
6:39 pm: Kieran’s talking about how it felt to do a man-on-man kissing scene. He said Wright wanted to break the ice for him so he asked him to come over one day and he laid a huge kiss on him out of nowhere. Wright chimed in and said he doesn’t mind taking one for the team.
6:42 pm: Nope, I changed my mind. Jason looks like a young Dustin Hoffman.
6:43 pm: Jason and Michael keep saying their favorite scene to shoot in the movie was a steamy shower sequence that took 2 weeks to film. Apparently we have to go out and watch the movie to find out if it made the final cut.
6:45 pm: Michael Cera was just asked by a fan how he maintained his trademark figure after all the training he did for the movie. He said, “Is that an insult or a compliment?”
6:46 pm: Wright just announced that they’re going to screen the movie for free on Friday and Saturday at 6:30 pm. But there all about to march out of the hall to go to an exclusive 45 minute screening of the movie right now!
6:50 pm: They’re playing a music clip from the movie and the director and the cast just walked off the stage. They were like thieves in the night. Damn, Edgar Wright really knows how to make an exit.
Off on the pilgrimage they go!
