The folks over in the UK have been waiting patiently and finally today (August 18) “Scott Pilgrim vs. the World” held its London premiere.
Anna Kendrick, Michael Cera, Jason Schwartzman and Mary Elizabeth Winstead all showed up at the Empire Leicester Square for the big event, showing some love to their fans before heading inside.
In a recent interview, Michael talked about how much he enjoyed working with writer/director Edgar Wright on the film.
“[It was] really amazing. It was different from anything I had ever done. It was a different actor-director relationship as far as what he was asking of people, because he knew what he wanted and knew exactly what he was making. But at the same time I always felt like I had ownership of the character. His choices in shot design and look of the film works really well.”
We have some pics of Anna leaving GMTV studios and also some stills of her appearance:

Aug 17th: Fans in pilgrimage to stars
MICHAEL Cera has come a long way in a short time.
The 22-year-old star of teen-inspired black comedies ‘Juno’ and ‘Superbad’ had dozens of adoring teenage fans queuing outside a Dublin radio station at dawn yesterday, three hours before an interview to promote his latest film ‘Scott Pilgrim vs The World’ was due to start.
Even more fans waited patiently in the rain for an autograph last night as he and ‘Twilight’ star Anna Kendrick and funnyman Jason Schwartzman (‘The Darjeeling Limited’) graced the red carpet at Dublin’s Cineworld for the Irish premiere of the film adaptation of the cult comic book series.
The film, which will open at cinemas across Ireland on August 25, is shaping up to the sleeper hit of the summer.

Aug 17th: Rocking out of Twilight into new movie role
SHE MADE her name as the cocksure Ivy League graduate in Up in the Air who finds firing people for a living is not an exact science.
Last night, Anna Kendrick, who won an Oscar nomination for her role in the film in which she starred alongside George Clooney, was in Dublin for the premiere for an altogether different type of film.
Scott Pilgrim v the World is based on a well-known Canadian comic book hero.
Pilgrim is a geek who plays bass in a very bad rock band.
He is smitten by a girl, but must defeat seven ex-boyfriends to win her heart in a type of real-life video game.
Kendrick turned up for the premiere at Cineworld in Parnell Street alongside her two co-stars: Michael Cera, who starred in the smash hit film Juno and now plays the title role in Scott Pilgrim ; and Jason Schwartzman, a nephew of The Godfather director Francis Ford Coppola.

Anna is in Dublin to promote Scott Pilgrim vs. the World. We have some photos of her arriving at her hotel and attending the Dublin premiere. I also added the lost (due to hacking) candids:
They’re hot on the promotional trail, and earlier today (August 16) the cast of “Scott Pilgrim vs. the World” was spotted out and about in Dublin, Ireland.
Michael Cera, Anna Kendrick, and Jason Schwartzman all made their exit from their hotel en route to some press duties in the historic city.
And though they received all kinds of buzz at this year’s Comic-Con, it looks like the “Scott Pilgrim” crew ended up with some less-than-stellar numbers at the box office this past weekend.
Raking in only $10.5 million, the film landed at the #5 spot for its opening weekend, beat out by flicks like “The Expendables” ($35 million) and “Eat Pray Love” ($23.7 million).
If you are a regular visitor you may noticed some missing updates from our site. That happened cause we were hacked and our last backup was a couple of days ago.
I’ll add the missing stuff tomorrow (not that much missing) along with new capture sets and videos in Kendrick Tube as the issue we had previously is resolved.
We’d like to thank our wonderful host Gertie for the instant reaction
Anna Kendrick has a message for all the Twilight haters out there.
Beauty Anna Kendrick, who stars as Jessica Stanley in The Twilight Saga, says if you don’t like the movies – then don’t bother buying a ticket.
The Up In The Air actress, who earned an Oscar nod for her role alongside George Clooney, is very loyal to the Saga that shot Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart to super-stardom.
Speaking in a recent interview, she revealed: “People like to make fun of the fans who camp out but people have renaissance faires; people do Civil War reenactments; people do what they like.
“I’m tired of hearing people rag on the fans.
“If you don’t like Twilight, don’t buy a ticket.”
Anna, who turned 25 said this week, said she’s very appreciative to have not been hounded by the paparazzi because of her role in the movies.
“I just feel really lucky to be in it but not have my privacy completely compromised by it,” she told the Wall Street Journal’s Speakeasy.
“I’m glad that the paparazzi haven’t followed me every day this year. I do not wish to be in that position.”
Anna Kendrick says filming Scott Pilgrim vs. the World was unlike anything she had ever done before.
The 25-year-old actress stars opposite Michael Cera and Jason Schwartzman in the film, which is an adaptation of the popular comic book series Scott Pilgrim. The movie sees Michael’s titular character fighting the seven evil exes of his dream girl in order to win her heart.
Anna plays Scott’s sister Stacey, who attempts to guide Scott through his battle. The actress found the movie extremely challenging to shoot because of all the special effects and spent most of her time on set unsure about what she was doing.
“It was definitely really kind of odd and technical, because of the way that it looks,” Anna told Interview magazine. “The process was definitely unlike anything I’ve ever done before. Like there’s a scene where I’m on the phone with Michael Cera and we had to do a split screen, so I had a little earpiece in my ear. I was listening to the footage that he’d already shot, and I just had to like fit my lines into the space in between his lines.”
Despite the challenges the cast faced during filming, Anna thinks the finished movie looks incredible. She can’t wait to see what fans think about it as it is like nothing else that has ever been made.
“I mean you know the film is really tight,” she said.
