Mary Nominated for Hollywood Critics Choice; Scott Pilgrim Virtual Reunion

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. In addition, the read-through was to benefit Water for People, a global nonprofit that helps people bring clean water and sanitation solutions to their communities for generations to come. They joined the Mosaic Challenge to benefit the Leadership Council COVID-19 Fund.

Cast members who participated were Michael Cera, Mary Elizabeth Winstead, 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. 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.

Entertainment Weekly Celebrates the 10 Year Anniversary of Scott Pilgrim Vs The World

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

New ‘Birds of Prey’ Photo Shoots and Interviews

There are two brand new photo shoots I have added into the gallery that Mary did to promote her new film Birds of Prey. The first one is from Entertainment Weekly’s Around the Table, where a film cast get together and discuss their movie over a meal. You can see that photo by clicking the thumbnail below and viewing the entire video interview below:

 

Secondly, Mary has a new photo shoot with WhoWhatWear. Some of the photos are below and some highlights from the interview. Be sure to click the link above to read it in full:

Do you remember when you got the call to come in for this project? What was your initial reaction?

It piqued my interest because it was so female-led. Margot Robbie, the fact that she was starring in it, because I really respect her as an actress, but also the fact that she was producing, I thought was really interesting. I went and watched Cathy Yan’s first film, which I loved, so I really wanted to meet her and talk to her about it. I was really curious about Birds of Prey from the get-go, more so than I think other films in this genre, because I think I thought, Oh, you sort of know what to expect, whereas this was something new to me. I was excited to meet all these women who are strong and interesting and unique.

What was your fitness regimen preparing for this role?

You know, thankfully they didn’t put us on any particular fitness regimen other than training for the roles, which was what do you need to know in order to play this character? What do you need to be able to do? Sometimes I was on my own, sometimes I was with the other girls, but we just had a big warehouse and trained with the stunt team for several months, did a lot of jujitsu, various kinds of martial arts, a lot of drills that would sort of slowly build into choreography over time, so it was really fun. I really loved it. I love working with stunt people because I find them to be just incredible people and so supportive and sweet, and their work ethic is incredible, and obviously their talent is unimaginable. I always find it really inspiring just to be around stunt people. I feel really lucky to get the opportunity to do that.
