This evening London’s Leicester Square saw the European Premiere of the new Universal Pictures, Edgar Wright directed movie, Scott Pilgrim vs. the World.
Pretty much all of the cast were in attendance including Michael Cera, Kieran Culkin, Mary Elizabeth Winstead, Chris Evans, Bill Hader, Satya Bhabba, Brandon Routh and Anna Kendrick who we discovered reads HeyUGuys on an hourly basis! Check out the video if you don’t believe me! We also got to talk with Jessica Hynes who talks about Burke and Hare and working with the great John Landis!
Ben (@Montimer) and I (@DaveSzt were there and we also got to chat with Brie Larson who I’m pretty sure could end up in my top 10 of nicest people on the planet. She was so great with the crowd of fans, spent time with everyone and was extremely pleasant with us. Also making an appearance this evening was Macauley Culkin but he was whisked into the cinema quicker than you can say Home Alone!
We got to chat with many of the names above but unfortunately didn’t manage to get any time with Scott Pilgrim (Michael Cera) himself, but he did work the crown aplenty which is always nice to see. We spoke to Edgar Wright who was joined by his buddie, Simon Pegg. Chris Evans was there too but again, we didn’t get to grab him which was a shame but all you need to know for now is right here on my Captain America: The First Avenger set visit!
Synopsis: Meet charming and jobless Scott Pilgrim (Michael Cera). A bass guitarist for garage band Sex Bob—omb, the 22—year—old has just met the girl of his dreams…literally. The only catch to winning Ramona Flowers (Mary Elizabeth Winstead)? Her seven evil exes are coming to kill him. Genre—smashing filmmaker Edgar Wright (Hot Fuzz, Shaun of the Dead) tells the amazing story of one romantic slacker’s quest to power up with love in Scott Pilgrim vs. the World. Scott Pilgrim has never had a problem getting a girlfriend. It’s getting rid of them that proves difficult. From the girl who kicked his heart’s ass—and now is back in town—to the teenage distraction he’s trying to shake when Ramona rollerblades into his world, love hasn’t been easy. He soon discovers, however, his new crush has the most unusual baggage of all: a nefarious league of exes controls her love life and will do whatever it takes to eliminate him as a suitor. As Scott gets closer to Ramona, he must face an increasingly vicious rogues’ gallery from her past—from infamous skateboarders to vegan rock stars and fearsome identical twins. And if he hopes to win his true love, he must vanquish them all before it really is game over.
Anna Kendrick confesses her love for HeyUGuys!
