Great Scott

Scott Pilgrim vs. The World comes to DVD and Blu-ray November 9th. It's my favorite movie of the year so far and it's now my most anticipated Blu-ray disc. There's enough material on the set to spend hours going through.

The DVD features extras such as commentary with director Edgar Wright and Scott Pilgrim creator Bryan Lee O'Malley, two cast commentaries, deleted scenes, a trivia track, and photo galleries. The Blu-ray will have all of those and a ton of exclusive extras including documentaries, alternate edits, music videos, trailers, the [adult swim] animated short Scott Pilgrim vs. The Animation, and a "TV safe" version called Scott Pilgrim vs. The Censors.

I like the cover artwork. It's an altered version of the theatrical poster with the overly airbrushed Scott being replaced with a Scott wielding a burning katanna. I do wish they had ignored the "Blu-ray = blue" motif. I love the vibrancy of the DVD's red cover.

Yeah, but then you wouldn't get the 8-bit font on the DVD.

I also thought you were going to reference the fact that Christopher Lloyd is now providing his voice for the Back to the Future game from Telltale.

Wait, so the movie is not in theaters anymore?
