Scott Pilgrim VS The World at Gorilla, Manchester, 17 June 2018, from £6 - Visit now

Cult film specialists RAD Screenings return to Gorilla with one of their recent favourites: Edgar Wright’s Scott Pilgrim vs. the World (2010). The British director made his name working alongside Simon Pegg and Nick Frost on amped-up genre-comedy hybrids such as Spaced (1999-2001), Shaun of the Dead (2004) and Hot Fuzz (2007) — and his first film made outside of the UK is along much the same lines.

Adapted from Bryan Lee O’Malley’s series of graphic novels, Scott Pilgrim stars Michael Cera as a twenty-something indie kid who must defeat his crush’s (Mary Elizabeth Winstead) seven evil exes in one-on-one combat in order to continue dating her. Praised for its bright, video-game inspired style and pop-energy, the film is bolstered by the reliably evocative emotional beats of young love. That so many of the films fledgling cast – including Anna Kendrick, Aubrey Plaza, Jason Schwartzman and Chris Evans – are genuine talents who went on to movie stardom, doesn’t hurt either.

This event is a genuine labour of love for the RAD team, who have put together a Scott Pilgrim quiz, playlist, and even a videogame setup for fans to enjoy. As has become the norm for RAD’s Gorilla events, guests can also expect themed food and drink to help the film go down.
