Edgar Wright has promised to bring us a weekly video blog from the set of Scott Pilgrim vs The Universe, and the first one has arrived.

And if you happen to be in Toronto this weekend, Edgar is presenting the grand finale of his Toronto Wright Stuff film festival at the Bloor. Forget Easter, this Sunday line-up is a miracle:
