Scott Pilgrim Invades San Diego

With the San Diego Comic-Con just around the corner, bits here and there are beginning to emerge about what folks attending can expect.  We were curious how much of a presence the Scott Pilgrim movie was going to have in San Diego, and then Edgar Write posted this on twitter earlier today:

Holy Shit! What is That? – @edgarwright 

For those who may not know what that is, it's the beginnings of a HUGE Scott Pilgrim banner being hung over the Hilton hotel.  But if you've never been to San Diego, that photo doesn't really show you where this will be in relation to the con.  Our intrepid reporters came across this photo, which gives you much more context.  The Hilton hotel is right next to the convention center, which is along the bottom of this photo.  So all 150,000 people going in and out of the con each day are going to be greeted by a HUGE photo of Michael Cera.

As they say in the business, "Shit just got real"
