Before they were rivals in Scott Pilgrim vs. the World, Michael Cera and Mae Whitman were romantic interests on Arrested Development. As George Michael and Ann Veal, Cera and Whitman were young, apple-cheeked teens in love . . . a far cry from Scott Pilgrim and Roxy Richter, who only want to decimate each other. Watch this clip from the series, and try not to get too nostalgic for the hilarious Fox show — or too eager for the much-anticipated movie version.

Based on the graphic novel series of the same name, Scott Pilgrim vs. the World is a genre-bender — it's part action flick, part rock and roll anthem, part romantic comedy. Overlaid with whimsical video game effects, it's a risky combo to employ for a mainstream film, but director Edgar Wright has executed it so confidently and with such commitment that it's a triumph.
Michael Cera is the title character, a bass player in the band Sex Bob-Omb, who mostly hangs out with his friends and deals with the daily drama of his love life. When he meets Ramona Flowers (Mary Elizabeth Winstead), his mysterious, multicolored-tressed love interest, he falls at his feet to date her. Like any new relationship, there are challenges — specifically Ramona's past, which includes seven angry exes that Scott must fight to the death if he wants to keep seeing Ramona. Not only is his life on the line, each of his nemeses has a mystical power he has to overcome (my favorite? Brandon Routh's vegan-powered psychic abilities). It's fantastical, for sure, but give it a shot: Scott Pilgrim is an energy drink of a movie, an effervescent gem with the aesthetics of a video game and the heart of an indie romance.

They might play romantic rivals in the upcoming Scott Pilgrim vs. The World but Jason Schwartzman and Michael Cera clearly have no bad blood between them off the set. We sat down with the costars in Hollywood as they prepped for the video game-inspired film to hit theaters next month. Cera stars as Scott, while Schwartzman plays Gideon, one of his girlfriend's seven evil exes hell-bent on destroying him. The hilarious twosome dished to me on the “miserable” training required for their impressive fight scene, the graphic novels that inspired the film, and why they’d never challenge each other to a push-up contest.
Lots of funny people hit the red carpet in LA last night for the premiere of Scott Pilgrim vs. the World. Michael Cera and Jason Schwartzman posed for photos solo, and Anna Kendrick turned a few heads in her strapless gown and high heels. Parenthood's Mae Whitman skipped the Summer TCAs in order to promote her big-screen project. Her TV costars, though, treated Buzz to a sneak peek at what's to come next season. Anna, Michael, and Jason were happy to keep showing off their film after spending last weekend together at Comic-Con, where she spoke about life on the set and Mr. Cera dressing like a superhero ranked among Buzz's favorite moments from the convention.
