Edgar Wright announced today that Scott Pilgrim Vs. the World is getting a Dolby re-release on April 30 with a shiny new Dolby Cinema cut.

Scott Pilgrim vs. The World was designed for the big screen and for the best sound systems,” said Wright in a statement. “To be able to see it with the best specs is obviously any filmmaker’s dream. You want people to see it as good as it could possibly be. I suspect that if you’re a fan of the movie, you’re going to get such a kick out of seeing it like this.”

If you've somehow managed to miss the geektastic cinematic gem that is Edgar Wright's Scott Pilgrim Vs. the World, the film stars a young Michael Cera as Scott, a wiry jerkface who wants his cake and to eat it too. Upon meeting his new girlfriend, Ramona Flowers (Mary Elizabeth Winstead), Scott discovers that he must defeat her seven evil exes to win her heart. The superbly-shot adventure features a killer soundtrack, celebrity actors galore, and plenty of over-the-top comic book action that's guaranteed to blow your hair back.

Joining Cera and Winstead for the madcap adventure of the heart are actors: Chris Evans (Lucas Lee), Brandon Routh (Todd Ingram), Mae Whitman (Roxy Richter), and Jason Schwartzman (Gideon Graves), with Alison Brie, Alison Pill, Aubrey Plaza, Kieran Culkin, Brie Larson, and Ellen Wong also starring.

Using the awesome power of Dolby Vision and Dolby Atmos, Wright's visually splendiferous 2010 comedy is poised to look and sound better than ever. If you're game for braving movie theaters by the end of April this celebration of Wright's stylish adaptation of Bryan Lee O’Malley’s indie comic series is not to miss! Tickets are on sale at AMC! This is a celebration that's exclusive to Dolby Cinemas, so be sure to bust out a map before securing a seat.
