Name: Jordan Greenwald
Saw a snaek preview earlier this week, and I can't wait for the film to open so I can promote it with my wallet. I took a few friends who aren't comic readers with me, and they immediately went out and bought the first three books in the series.
While I don't think that this will be a film that does anything to bolster the reputation of movies rooted in graphic storytelling (I stand by Road to Perdition on that one), SP is kinetic and funny - I can't remember laughing nearly as hard in any of the other comedies I've seen this year. Wright's taken the property and created something with a ton of youthful energy, and as a result, I'm really hopeful that Scott Pilgrim will score big with teenagers (and grown-up 80's kids who owned Power Gloves, like me).
GREAT movie, a ton of fun, and totally suitable for a date or a night out with friends. I'm with Gabe though - don't think this will be a huge hit, but it'll pull its budget back in and then some.
