Guillermo del Toro vs. Scott Pilgrim Vs. The World

On Monday, November 1, 2010, director Guillermo del Toro (Pan’s Labyrinth, Hellboy) moderated a question and answer session with director Edgar Wright, actor Michael Cera, and comic author and illustrator Bryan Lee O’Malley about Scott Pilgrim Vs. The World, which is to be released on Blu-Ray and DVD November 9, 2010.

This event took place at a sold out screening of the film at the Egyptian Theater in Hollywood, California. Many fans of the film, along with additional cast and crew members were in attendance. Del Toro had no involvement with the film, but is good friends with Wright and a big fan of the film in general. As the session lasted for nearly an hour and a half and del Toro has an awesome but tough to transcribe Mexican accent, it is fortunate that a number of filmed clips can be found below.

A review for the packed Blu-Ray by fellow Why So Blu? writer Sean Ferguson can be found Here.

My own review for the film, which I have proclaimed my love for many times, can be found Here.
