‘Scott Pilgrim’ Animated Series Being Considered, According to Edgar Wright

While a live-action sequel to Edgar Wright‘s Scott Pilgrim vs. the World seems very unlikely at this point, there still might be more Pilgrim on the way.

Wright adds that there’s nothing official yet, but confirms there have been discussions with comic creator Bryan Lee O’Malley about the idea. Scott Pilgrim vs. the World is turning 10 years old this August, and while it remains a cult favorite these days, i...

The 15 Funniest Movies of the Decade

(This article is part of our Best of the Decade series.) When considering the best in cinema, it can be easy to overlook the movies that go out of their way to make us crack up. For whatever reason, comedy never seems as significant or important as comedy. But if we didn’t laugh, there’d be nothing to pick us up from those sad moments. So as part of our look back at the decade that was 2010 through 2019, I wanted to make sure we singled out the funniest movies of the year. No, I’m not just pick...

Ethan Anderton’s Top 10 Movies of the Decade

(This article is part of our Best of the Decade series.) The 2010s will mark the decade when cinema as we know it started changing drastically. The movies themselves aren’t really changing, but the manner in which we get to see them is in the middle of a drastic overhaul. In some ways, it’s easier than ever to watch a movie. But along with that, it’s also gotten harder for movies to find their audience, let alone get made. Even so, the 2010s were full of movies that will stick with us for years...

Ranking the Films of Edgar Wright on the 15th Anniversary of ‘Shaun of the Dead’

A mashup of zombie horror and romantic comedy, a video-game-style depiction of millennial culture before it was called millennial culture, a post-apocalyptic dystopian thriller seen through the eyes of some Gen-X’ers, and more. These concepts all sprung from the mind of filmmaker Edgar Wright, whose features over the last 15 years have managed to all feel daring and strikingly original even as he wears his references on his metaphorical sleeves. Wright’s first major feature film, Shaun of ...

Summertime Blues: 15 August Movies That Didn’t Stink

August is a precarious month for the film industry; nestled between the blockbuster summer schedule and the advantageous awards season of fall, it’s a quiet time for big budget fare. Though not quite the dumping ground of, say, February, it’s mostly a breather month – a calm before the prestige storm, and where studios can test their less-trusted properties. It may evade easy categorization, but August can be a stellar month for film. It’s the season of R-rated comedies, violent road movies, an...

Exploring the Movie References and Homages in Edgar Wright’s Work

Every director claims to be a movie geek. But there’s movie geeks, and then there’s Edgar Wright . The director, who casually drops lists of his 1000 favorite films when he’s not working, seems to view movie references as a bit of a sport. If you’re not spotting at least a dozen influences or outright homages in his movies, you probably need to rewind – and if you’re watching his earlier films like Shaun of the Dead or Hot Fuzz , just give up trying to count. While Wright has in...

The Wright Stuff: The Best Edgar Wright Movie Scenes

Over a twenty-three year career spanning TV and film, Edgar Wright has honed his craft to become one of the most inventive, exciting filmmakers working today. With his genre-bending screwball comedies, Wright has developed an instantly recognizable style, culled from filmmakers before him, like Sam Raimi, Martin Scorsese, the Coen Brothers and more, and given his own unique twist. With rapid-fire montages and close-up cutaways, Wright fully embraces the visual aspect of the visual medi...

The Greatest Music Moments in Edgar Wright’s Filmography

In 2005, I watched a new horror comedy titled Shaun of the Dead. I had not heard of Edgar Wright, Simon Pegg, or anyone involved with this quirky little piece of entertainment. And something struck me big time about this movie: the incredible editing and music choices. And since Shaun‘s release, Wright has proven that he is a master at mixing cinema with the energy of a music video, all the while not losing his grip on the story. In Wright’s latest movie, Baby Driver, music plays a key role wit...

The 13-ish Best Edgar Wright Movie Characters

Edgar Wright‘s latest feature film hits theaters this week, and by all accounts Baby Driver is another winner blending action, laughs, and Wright’s own unique sensibilities. (Don’t take my assumption for it though, check out Jacob Hall’s review out of SXSW.) Wright has yet to deliver anything less than a very good time at the movies, and while a lot of factors go into an acclaimed film, one of his many strengths as a filmmaker is in the variety of fun and fun-loving characters he packs into his...

Five Great Audio Commentaries for Five Comic Book Movies

A trend in audio commentaries for comic book movies? They’re often much lighter than, say, a historical drama or a war movie. The participants are typically jovial, and perhaps it’s because they finally see the light at the end of the tunnel after a two or three experience, or maybe even more than that in some instances. After spending a few years on a project, and coming out of that high-stakes process with a movie they’re actually proud of, the filmmakers in commentary tracks for comic book m...

‘Scott Pilgrim vs the World’ Transitions Prove Edgar Wright Is A Master Filmmaker [Video Essay]

Even though Scott Pilgrim vs the World was praised highly by critics, resulting in an 81% on Rotten Tomatoes, the film was a disappointment at the box office for Universal Pictures. After costing $60 million to make, the movie only made just over $47 million worldwide. The film has become a bit of a cult classic, and it’s found a decent sized audience on home video, but it deserves so much more attention than it’s gotten, if only because it’s evidence of Edgar Wright’s skills as a masterful and...

VOTD: ‘The Dark Knight Trilogy’ Gets an Outstanding ‘Scott Pilgrim vs The World’ Makeover

Movie mash-ups are a dime a dozen on the web, and sometimes even though they can be good fun, they bring together two movies that fit together pretty easily. But did you ever think that a mash-up of Christopher Nolan‘s gritty, grounded Dark Knight Trilogy and Edgar Wright‘s fantastical, energetic Scott Pilgrim vs the World would make the perfect combo? The YouTube channel Inventor Headquarters has taken footage from all three films in The Dark Knight Trilogy and spiced them up by editing them i...

VOTD: ‘Scott Pilgrim vs the World’ Movie vs the Book: What Are the Differences?

When you look at how director Edgar Wright presented Scott Pilgrim vs the World for the big screen, you would think that the film adaptation of Bryan Lee O’Malley‘s graphic novel series would be pretty loyal to the source material. For the most part, that’s true. But since the screenplay by Michael Bacall went into development shortly after the release of the first volume in the book series, there was a time when the books were being released while the screenplay was being written. Beyond that,...
