Scott Pilgrim vs The World

It's here. Scott Pilgrim takes on the UK today. Why should you go see it? I spent many words in this month's Gallery telling you why. Here's the intro:

'How many times have you been sitting through some kind of generic rom-com and thought to yourself ‘this could definitely do with some more kick ass action’? If you’re like me then the answer is probably every time. Instead of Hugh Grant getting delightfully befuddled how about Hugh Grant whipping out a delightful samurai sword (No Weddings and Lots of Funerals?). Instead of Kate Hudson trying to annoy Matthew McConaughey into dumping her how about she just kicks him in the face (How to Hurt a Guy in 10 Days?). Instead of whatever happens in 27 Dresses there are just lots of explosions? Allow me to introduce Scott Pilgrim vs. The World: The rom-com for the Nintendo generation.'

The film has had hugely positive reviews but relatively poor Box Office in the States. Let's prove we're not like them, the same audience who didn't tune in to Arrested Development. The same audience who continue to fail to watch 30 Rock. Let's show some national pride and get to the local movieplex!
