Yesterday marked the one year anniversary of Cathy Yan’s Birds of Prey film hitting theaters and to celebrate the occasion, Ella Jay Basco, who played Cassandra Cain in the film, uploaded some never before seen promo images of her and the rest of the girls as their characters. You can view the new images in the gallery.
Netflix has announced that a new film will be premiering every week for the rest of 2021 and during the sizzle reel shown, a first look at Mary in the upcoming action film ‘KATE’ was seen. Also starring Woody Harrelson, the movie is described as follows:
After she’s irreversibly poisoned, a ruthless criminal operative has less than 24 hours to exact revenge on her enemies and in the process forms an unexpected bond with the daughter of one of her past victims.
I have added the first still of Mary into the gallery, and you can see the 2021 Netflix preview below (at the 1:36 mark). No word yet on when the movie will actually premiere, but I will be sure to let you all know! So glad we’ll finally be seeing this movie!!
A buuuuunch of Scott Pilgrim VS the World was shared today via Edgar Wright in celebration of the film’s 10 year anniversary. Check back soon for more pics! First and foremost, he shared a ton of behind the scenes photos and videos on Twitter which you can view here, but I uploaded all the ones featuring Mary into the gallery.
Finally, Edgar shared a new article from Entertainment Weekly where the cast looked back at filming the movie. I included some highlights of Mary and her love for the film, her character Ramona Flowers and more but be sure to read the article in full because it’s written so well and has so much amazing info! He also tweeted some other articles discussing the film’s soundtrack and another interview he did with Michael and Aubrey Plaza.
Mary on what she loves about Ramona:
What I liked about Ramona is that she’s not asking for the attention, it just kind of follows her around, whatever she does. She’s the reluctant femme fatale. She’s not trying to be this cool or anything, she just sort of attracts this attention, and it’s a little bit exhausting. It was cool to get to play what I guess people would see as this Manic Pixie Dream Girl, but to me that’s not what she was trying to be at all. She was just trying to figure herself out.
On training for the role:
The training was really intense. I was training for something like six months before shooting. I started training in L.A. on my own. I was training in Wushu, and different kinds of martial arts, and rollerblading, and all these different things. It was pretty unfamiliar. I had done a little bit [of stuntwork] here and there. Like, I got to throw a punch maybe in the Die Hard films. But nothing like choreographed fight sequences. That was a totally new thing.
On working with Michael Cera:
Michael was such a sweetheart. I just remember him being this real sort of gentle soul. I think he easily bonded a lot with Alison and Mark and all the whole Sex Bob-omb crew. When they were all together, it was a real kind of comedic energy. But when it was just me and Michael it was really quiet and sweet and I appreciated him so much, because he really made me feel at ease. I’d been in a lot of stuff but I’d never really been the female lead in a big studio film, so I was pretty nervous a lot of the time, and his energy was so sweet and I appreciated him so much for that.
Tomorrow August 13, 2020 marks the 10 year anniversary of Scott Pilgrim VS the World hitting theaters. In celebration of that, director Edgar Wright shared a bunch of behind the scenes photos of the cast when they were in rehearsal/filming the movie. I have uploaded the new shots of Mary (featuring Brie Larson, Ellen Wong and Alison Pill) into the gallery! Stay tuned tomorrow for even more photos, articles and new info on the original soundtrack Edgar will be revealing!
Mary Elizabeth Winstead reunited with her Scott Pilgrim Vs the World co-stars for a live read of the film in honor of its 10 year anniversary. The read through was to support Water For People, a non-profit organization to promote the development of high-quality drinking water and sanitation services for everyone. So far, over $16,500+ have been donated since the video was uploaded this afternoon. You can click the link above to donate and if you join the site’s Club 6 program to donate $6 every month, you will be entered into a raffle to win one of the drawings Bryan Lee O’Malley drew throughout the reading along with one Michael Cera drew.
You can get more info on their site and watch the script read-through with the cast below:
This was SO much fun to watch! I love how happy they all doing this and have remained friends all these years.
Tomorrow July 20th, the Scott Pilgrim VS the World cast will be reuniting virtually via Zoom at 1pm EST to hold a 10th anniversary table read of the film. Entertainment Weekly will be hosting the event in support of Water For People. The nonprofit organization is to support the development of high-quality drinking water and sanitation services. You can donate to Water for People by clicking here.
Mary will be joined by Michael Cera, Ellen Wong, Mark Webber, Alison Pill, Satya Bhabha, Chris Evans, Anna Kendrick, Aubrey Plaza, Mae Whitman, Brandon Routh, and Jason Schwartzman. They were joined by director/writer Edgar Wright, co-writer Michael Bacall and creator of the graphic novels, Bryan Lee O’Malley.
In other news, it is rumored that the majority of the cast from season 1 of Netflix’s Love, Death & Robots will be returning for season 2 including Mary. According to Finance Rewind, it is “expected that season 2 will release in March 2021, if not then somewhere in 2021 the upcoming season will be out. Most of the episodes of season 2 are completed and are submitted.”
No official release date has been announced by Netflix at this time, so all this is just speculation (for now).
LD+R is an American adult, sci-fi anthological animation television series created by Tim Miller.
Entertainment Weekly has revealed that the ‘Scott Pilgrim VS the World‘ cast reunited remotely back in May to do a live-read of the film to celebrate the 10th anniversary of its release.

EW hasn’t announced when they’ll release the script read-through with the cast, but most likely it’ll be released some time in August since the film originally came out on August 13, 2010.
And in case you missed it, it was previously announced by Edgar Wright that the film will be back in theaters.

August 13, 2010 marks the 10 year anniversary of ‘Scott Pilgrim Vs the World‘. Directed by Edgar Wright, the movie is based on graphic novels of the same name by Bryan Lee O’Malley. To help celebrate the upcoming 10 year anniversary of the film, the cast, O’Malley and Wright spoke with Entertainment Weekly and reminisced on the film and whether or not we’ll get a sequel. Below are highlights of Mary from the interview, but you can read the entire Q&A with the cast by clicking the above link.
Mary on training for the film:
WINSTEAD: They got us together in Toronto before we started shooting. It was all of us in this giant warehouse. One of us would be doing martial arts in the corner, and somebody else would be weight-lifting in another corner, and then Michael and Alison and [Mark Webber, who played Sex Bob-omb guitarist Stephen Stills] would be doing band stuff at the same time. It was really fun.
The cast and crew on whether a sequel will happen:
CERA: I don’t think a sequel is a reality. [Laughs] In my limited understanding of the film industry, when a movie doesn’t really explode at the box office, it’s hard for anybody to get behind a sequel.
O’MALLEY: I would like to revisit the characters [in comic form] and see what they’re up to. I sketched Scott early in the pandemic with a huge beard. I think that would be a funny image.
WRIGHT: There’s some plans — and there’s nothing official yet — but there are some plans to revisit the material in an animation way. We’ve been talking with Bryan and with Jared for a while [about]: What if we did something with the books in anime form? It’s being discussed as we speak.
EVANS: The Marvel fan base is rabid, but the Scott Pilgrim fandom is just as dedicated and loyal as any fandom I’ve ever seen.
WINSTEAD: There’s something about Scott Pilgrim that’s not like anything else, and a lot of people are looking for that. They feel they’re not like anybody else or they feel their tastes don’t really line up with what is being made right now. You see that movie and you think, Oh God, this speaks to me; this is what I’ve been looking for!
SCHWARTZMAN: There’s still an email chain that started 10 years ago. The entire cast is on it. To this day, everyone still “replies all” to a lot of emails.
WRIGHT: I’m incredibly proud of the movie. The fact that you’re not doing a 10th-anniversary article about The Expendables says it all.
And in case you missed it, it was previously announced by Edgar Wright that the film will be back in theaters
Yesterday evening, The (film) Academy along with director Edgar Wright, the cast of Scott Pilgrim VS the World, and comic creator Bryan Lee O’Malley live-tweeted the movie. During that time, Edgar shared a bunch of behind the scenes photos of Mary and the rest of the cast and I have uploaded all the behind the scenes pics into the gallery. Ellen Wong (Knives Chau) shared two photos that I also uploaded. Edgar also tweeted a video of Mary reminiscing about her time working on the film and footage of her rehearsing the kick she does during the Roxy Richter fight. Remember to click the tweet itself if the video doesn’t load!
In related news, it has been confirmed by Edgar and Dolby Cinemas that in honor of the film’s 10th anniversary in August, the movie will be heading back to theaters. A date has yet to be announced due to the current global pandemic.
