Michael Cera fans can smile, as Scott Pilgrim vs. the World is coming to Blu-ray November 9, and appears to be getting the premium treatment with plenty of extras. Check the press release after the break for a full list of the special features exclusive to this Blu-ray, but beware as it's long, with plenty of time dedicated to explaining the story's journey from comic book page to screen. Of course, since it's a Universal disc it's also getting the pocket BLU BD-Live integration that allows remote control and content access from computer or mobile device, and viewers choice of either Tremors or Pitch Black as a free streaming movie for a short time. Not that many people checked this one out in theaters, but we imagine its video game-style look will fit very well on the HDTV this winter.

SYNOPSIS


Meet charming and jobless Scott Pilgrim (Michael Cera). A bass guitarist for totally average garage band Sex Bob-omb, the 22-year-old has just met the girl of his dreams...literally. The only catch to winning Ramona Flowers (Mary Elizabeth Winstead)? Her seven evil exes are coming to kill him. Genre-smashing filmmaker Edgar Wright (Hot Fuzz, Shaun of the Dead) tells the amazing story of one romantic slacker's quest to power up with love in Scott Pilgrim vs. the World. Scott Pilgrim has never had a problem getting a girlfriend. It's getting rid of them that proves difficult. From the girl who kicked his heart's ass-and now is back in town-to the teenage distraction he's trying to shake when Ramona rollerblades into his world, love hasn't been easy. He soon discovers, however, his new crush has the most unusual baggage of all: a nefarious league of exes controls her love life and will do whatever it takes to eliminate him as a suitor. As Scott gets closer to Ramona, he must face an increasingly vicious rogues' gallery from her past-from infamous skateboarders to vegan rock stars and fearsomely identical twins. And if he hopes to win his true love, he must vanquish them all before it really is game over.
