Edgar Wright’s Scott Pilgrim vs. The World is slated to hit DVD and Blu-ray on November 9th.  Special features include deleted and alternate scenes, bloopers, and cast and director commentary.  Judging by the releases for Shaun of the Dead and Hot Fuzz, I’m sure there will be plenty more extras (both discs are must-owns).  As we reported in August, there’s also a special feature that shows off a piece of animation that Wright’s brother Oscar did back in 2008 that demonstrated the physics of Scott’s massive hit-combo against Matthew Patel in the first fight.

Hit the jump for a list of special features that will be on the UK version (and hopefully the US version as well).  Scott Pilgrim vs. The World has an MSRP of $29.98 on DVD and $39.98 on Blu-ray.

[Update: we received a press release with full details on the home video release, plus a high-resolution image of the cover art.  Check out the updates after the jump.]

Bleeding Cool reports that the UK DVD/Blu-ray will offer:

  • 5 minutes and 45 seconds of TV spots
  • A 1 minute and 24 second international trailer
  • An audio commentary with Michael Cera, Jason Schwartzman, Mary Elizabeth Winstead, Ellen Wong, and Brandon Routh
  • Another with Anna Kendrick, Aubrey Plaza, Kieran Culkin, and Mark Webber
  • 20 minutes and 11 seconds of “Additional material Bonus X 2 3 Trailers” – is that twenty three trailers? (Note: I think there are three extra trailers and the “Bonus X 2″ is a video game/in-movie reference).
  • The “main” trailer and teaser
  • The Osymyso remix clips, totaling a run time of 9 minutes and 13 seconds.

Even without a glut of special features, Scott Pilgrim vs. The World has the potential to be a demo disc when it comes to picture quality and sound.  Here’s hoping Universal delivers the goods on what sould be one of the must-buy discs of 2010.

SCOTT PILGRIM VS. THE CRITICS

Scott Pilgrim vs. the World slayed critics of every generation with its highly stylized visuals. The New York Times’ A.O. Scott raves “You may want to see it again as soon as it’s over.” Jeremy Smith of “AintItCoolNews” calls the film “Wholly original. There’s never been a movie like it” and Rossiter Drake of the San Francisco Examiner pronounces it a “bold, brilliant spectacle.” Scott Pilgrim vs. the World is “far and away the funniest movie of the summer,” according to the Orlando Sentinel’s Roger Moore, and Peter Travers of Rolling Stone calls the film “a breathless rush of a movie that jumps off the screen, spins your head around and then stealthily works its way into your heart. It’s a game changer.”

SYNOPSIS

Meet charming and jobless Scott Pilgrim (Michael Cera).  A bass guitarist for totally average garage band Sex Bob-omb, the 22-year-old has just met the girl of his dreams…literally.  The only catch to winning Ramona Flowers (Mary Elizabeth Winstead)?  Her seven evil exes are coming to kill him.  Genre-smashing filmmaker Edgar Wright (Hot Fuzz, Shaun of the Dead) tells the amazing story of one romantic slacker’s quest to power up with love in Scott Pilgrim vs. the World. Scott Pilgrim has never had a problem getting a girlfriend.  It’s getting rid of them that proves difficult.  From the girl who kicked his heart’s ass—and now is back in town—to the teenage distraction he’s trying to shake when Ramona rollerblades into his world, love hasn’t been easy.  He soon discovers, however, his new crush has the most unusual baggage of all: a nefarious league of exes controls her love life and will do whatever it takes to eliminate him as a suitor.  As Scott gets closer to Ramona, he must face an increasingly vicious rogues’ gallery from her past—from infamous skateboarders to vegan rock stars and fearsomely identical twins.  And if he hopes to win his true love, he must vanquish them all before it really is game over.
