Reitman adores Pilgrim
SCOTT PILGRIM VS. THE WORLD is apparently mind blowing. At least this is the vibe I got from Jason Reitman's tweets.
One of the benefits of being Edgar Wright's friend is that you might get to see early footage from his movies. Well, that's exactly what Reitman got from his buddy, 30 minutes of PILGRIM.
The movie won't come out until sometime next year, but is already one of the most anticipated. Plus, everyone could use more Mary Elizabeth Winstead. I am fans of both Reitman and Wright, so it would be an honor to see any early footage of theirs. Wright made Reitman swear secrecy after he got the peek, and it sounds like the best peek ever:
In London, @edgarwright showed me 30min of Scott Pilgrim. While sworn to secrecy (so much, surprised blood wasn’t demanded) I will say this: It is a game changer for Edgar and the genre. It moves the speed of light and carries more unadulterated joy than I've seen in recent cinema. SP does what everyone our age has been dreaming about: achieves the first all encompassing film of the joystick generation. I’m in awe of the sheer control in the filmmaking. It feels like a “Matrix” for love and how willing we are to fight for it. If I had a movie coming out next year, I wouldn’t want to be anywhere near it. Hats off my friend. Can’t get it out of my head.
I don't know about any of you, but that just sent my excitement level through the roof.
