Scott Pilgrim vs. the World is a 2010 comedy film co-written, produced and directed by Edgar Wright, based on the graphic novel series Scott Pilgrim by Bryan Lee O'Malley. It stars Michael Cera as Scott Pilgrim, a slacker musician who must battle his girlfriend Ramona's seven evil exes.
It was initially planned as a film after the first volume of the comic was released. Wright became attached to the project, and filming began in March 2009 in Toronto. The film premiered after a panel discussion at the San Diego Comic-Con International on July 22, 2010. It received a wide release in North America on August 13, 2010.
Despite receiving positive reviews from critics, the film only grossed $47.7 million at the box office, against an estimated production budget of $85–90 million making it a Box Office Disappointment.
