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.
In other news, it was also announced that Mary and the cast of Birds of Prey were nominated for a Hollywood Critics Choice Awards. In total, the film has six nominations and they are as follows:
–Best Picture –Best Actress (Margot Robbie) – Supporting Actress (Mary Elizabeth Winstead) – Supporting Actor (Ewan McGregor) –Adapted Screenplay –Best Director (Cathy Yan).

Posted onWritten byJessicaComments Off on 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.
Posted onWritten byJessicaComments Off on THR Interviews Mary; More Birds of Prey Interviews
THR caught up with Mary to discuss Birds of Prey and her upcoming action film Kate (hitting Netflix later this year), and I’ve highlighted some of the Q&A’s below. Be sure to click the link above to read it in full:
In Christopher Nolan’s Batman Begins, he made the point that Bruce Wayne is Batman’s mask, figuratively speaking. With that in mind, how would you differentiate Huntress from Helena? Is Huntress her true face, a la Batman?
I think she creates Huntress from Helena. She creates Huntress from the pain that Helena has experienced in her youth. Huntress is the face she can put on to put that pain into action and turn that pain into something good in her eyes. She gets to be an avenger, she gets to have purpose and she gets to be more than just this scared little girl that she was when her family was killed in front of her. I think that’s what the character or persona of Huntress represents to her.
Physically speaking, is this the hardest job you’ve ever had?
It was up until that point. Since then, I’ve moved on and done a much more action-heavy movie [Kate] after Birds of Prey, which was great. But Birds of Prey was definitely a big, huge leap in that direction for me to really train hard with a stunt team and go beyond what I’ve done before in terms of fight training and physicality. I really loved it.
Given the women-led creative team, did you and your castmates have greater camaraderie?
Absolutely. We talked about it a lot. I remember speaking with Jurnee about how she and I have both been in the business since we were kids — well over 20 years now — and how this is the first time this has happened for either of us, which is shocking, strange and not right. But, at the same time, it’s made this experience so special, and it was such a bonding experience for all of us to go through this film together, to be in the trenches together, to be working hard together, to be putting out work that we’re proud of and to have it be our own. It feels great to not be standing behind a bunch of men, but to actually be standing in front of it as women with something that we made, something that we’re proud of and something that we put our blood, sweat and tears into.
Lots more video interviews with Mary promoting Birds of Prey with the cast have also been uploaded and you can view them after the cut.
