Scott Pilgrim Vs. The Box Office

Spread the love

Moviefone has compiled a cool list of many of the video game and pop culture references sprinkled throughout Scott Pilgrim Vs. The World. This film’s box office is proving to be every bit as much as an oddity as the film itself. If this film stays on track to come in fifth this weekend, to me, it sends a message to studios, and it ain’t a good one.

It tells them they can invest money in having the coolest Comic-Con presence out there, give out awesome chotchkies, build the hype with screenings that generate five-minute-long standing ovations all which translate to the best praise for a film ever on sites like Twitter (just search for #ScottPilgrim on there if you need proof) — and yet when opening weekend comes around, where are all these people?!

Is it not enough to connect with a young audience today, dumb fuckers who can’t BREAK AWAY from those same social networking sites for even two hours? Or is it the whole attitude of “why should I leave the house when I can torrent a bootleg” ? Or maybe knowing it only takes three months for a blu-ray to become available for popping into their PS3? I honestly can’t figure it out. But it sucks. And I fear it will lead to less awesome comic-con epicness from studios in the future.

This is one of the all time great fun film EXPERIENCES. There’s no other film like SPvsTW. A film that takes you by surprise and K-O’s you with it’s originality. Sure, it may be love it or hate it, but just please please go out and see this now, TODAY, and decide which side you fall on! The future of awesomeness depends on it!
