Watch Edgar Wright’s Favorite ‘Scott Pilgrim’ Remix Video

One year ago, Scott Pilgrim vs. the World came and went through theaters, missed by most of the general public, but treasured by those who caught it. Director Edgar Wright (Shaun of the Dead, Hot Fuzz) encapsulated a generation’s point-of-view in his pop culture-infused action romance, blending video game fighting moves with the confusion and tenderness of budding romance. Not an easy task, to say the least.

As a way of saying thank you to all the fans who kept Scott Pilgrim in conversation (where it belongs), Wright held a contest, asking people with video-editing know-how to remix the movie into a brand spankin’ new music video. No longer would Michael Cera be confined to the original studio cut.

The results are magic, perfectly fitting the movie’s colorful, kinetic attitude. The winning entry represents everything we love about the film—the music is as infectious as it was the first time around, while the savvy re-cut incorporates all new imagery and juxtaposition. Check out the winner below, as well as all the other entries on Edgar Wright’s site (congrats to Paul Martinovic for winning the contest!).
