Mark Webber Looks On Scott Pilgrim vs Back. the global world a decade Later
Can you think it’s been a decade since Edgar Wright’s Scott Pilgrim vs the World exploded onto the screen? Neither can Mark Webber, who discussed the cult classic while promoting his upcoming film The Host to No Words.
“Oh my God, yeah! Scott Pilgrim is the greatest,” Mark said. “That film means so much if you ask me. Every single person who done that film still means so much if you ask me and is part of my life. Also to have reconnected with everyone – we did a read for charity recently, for Water for folks … also it was so rad to see everyone after these a decade – that is crazy to all or any folks that it’s been a decade. What the f**k? How did that happen?”
Webber revealed he and the cast knew at the proper time these were making something special.
“I knew at that time – most of us knew,” he said. “Yeah, it didn’t make the amount of cash it was likely to make at the box office, but most of us knew we made a incredible really, special film. Therefore it feels extra special now having seen the generations of fans and the cult status the film has achieved is merely so rad.”
The actor then spoke about how exactly the film was experienced by him as both a participant and a fan. “It’s cool in order to watch a film that you’re in and believe that way. Each time I watch the movie it’s just so enjoyable. And having the ability to play my Sex Ba-Bomb albums in the motor car for the youngsters. They’re like, ‘That’s you dad really?’ And I’m like, yeah! It’s awesome pretty. I’m bragging to my pre-teen son that I’ve got 11 million streams on Spotify! Sex Ba-Bomb, this fictional band, ended up succeeding actually. It’s an awesome kick really.”
Finally, he ended by reiterating his love for cast and crew and his hope that Scott Pilgrim will continue steadily to thrive in the history of pop culture.
“I really like everyone on that film – most of us have this awesome love for every other. And it’s awesome to see a lot of people rediscovering it and keeping it alive. It’s a bummer as the plan was it had been likely to hit theaters and become re-released, but this example we’re all in right has turned everything ugly now. It’s nice that still, regardless of the re-release not happening, it’s still being honored again.”
Scott Pilgrim vs. the World starred Michael Cera as Scott Pilgrim, a man who falls hard for Mary Elizabeth Winstead’s Ramona Flowers. But to win Ramona’s heart, Scott must face her seven evil exes, including Lucas Lee (Chris Evans), Todd Ingram (Brandon Routh), Roxy Richter (Mae Whitman), and Gideon Graves (Jason Schwartzman).
