Last night at the Egyptian, Scott Pilgrim Vs. The World was screened in anticipation of next week’s DVD and Blu-ray launch. In attendance were director Edgar Wright, stars Mary Elizabeth Winstead, Michael Cera, Johnny Simmons, Satya Bhabha, and comic book creator Bryan Lee O’Malley. Director Guillermo Del Toro was also there to introduce the film and lead a spirited question and Answer session.
