STARRING Michael Cera, Mary Elizabeth Winstead, Kieran Culkin
DIRECTED BY Edgar Wright
WRITTEN BY Michael Bacall and Edgar Wright

Michael Cera stars as Scott Pilgrim, an indie-rock bassist with a big problem. His new girlfriend, Ramona Flowers (Mary Elizabeth Winstead), has seven ”evil exes” whom Scott must defeat in battle if he wants to keep breathing. Almost everyone in this romantic comedy, which is based on Bryan Lee O’Malley’s graphic-novel series, has superpowers and martial-arts skills — though the characters ”don’t treat magical things as if they’re out of the ordinary,” says Cera. Appropriately enough, Brandon Routh and Chris Evans play two of the exes. ”Obviously, it is a nice in-joke that one is Superman and one is the Human Torch,” says director Edgar Wright (Hot Fuzz). ”If you saw Chris Evans about to lay a haymaker on Michael Cera, you would think, ‘Oh, he’s going to die.”’
