Scott Pilgrim’s stars celebrate Toronto at film’s screening

It was a homecoming for the cast of Scott Pilgrim vs. The World at the Winter Garden Theatre in Toronto Thursday evening. The film, which gets wide release on Aug. 13, is set in Toronto, and many of its actors, including indie darling Michael Cera, call the city their hometown.

Mary Elizabeth Winstead (Ramona Flowers) traded her comic book colours – pink highlights and punk-rock gear – for brown locks and a demure beige dress. Cera, who plays the title role, dressed down for the occasion in a plaid shirt and brown corduroy pants.

Bryan Lee O’Malley, creator of the graphic-novel series that inspired the movie, joined them, along with director Edgar Wright and cast members Ellen Wong, Anna Kendrick, Mae Whitman, Satya Bhama, Jason Schwartzman and Alison Pill.

Cera said he is surprised but happy that the film has sparked tourist attractions offering a Scott Pilgrim-age to Toronto: hotel stays and tours of movie locales, such as Lee’s Palace and Casa Loma.

“Oh, that’s smart. I hope that works out for them,” Cera said of the marketing idea.

Wong, who plays Knives Chau, says she hopes the movie will introduce people to the city.

Torontonian Pill said she was happy to film in her hometown.

“I was happy to be in Toronto as Toronto,” said Pill, who plays Kim Pine. Toronto usually plays another city on screen.

The plot, which has Scott Pilgrim defeat seven evil exes for the heart of Ramona Flowers, is pure fiction compared with the romantic lives of its stars. Satya Bhama, who plays evil ex Matthew Patel, says he isn’t really evil; he’s on good terms with his exes in real life.

Actor Jason Schwartzman, who plays Gideon Graves, showed off his karate kicks.

He was less confident in his sword fighting skills. For his character, the evilest of the exes, he took lessons yielding the weapon. “Let’s put it this way: I could not defend you,” Schwartzman admitted.
