    "Scott Pilgrim Vs. The World," based on the graphic novel of the same name, is the story of a boy -- wait -- make that a man. Actually, let's say it's a movie about a man-boy who falls for a girl.

    But before the man-boy and his new flame can really be together, Scott Pilgrim (Michael Cera) must defeat seven of her evil exes. Ultimately he must defeat the most evil of all, Gideon Gordon Graves (Jason Schwartzman), in a Jackie Chan-style showdown  -- seriously, they were trained by Chan's team.

    Schwartzman and Cera are joined by an eclectic and talented cast of superstars which includes Anna Kendrick, who has starred opposite George Clooney in "Up in the Air" and plays the role of  Belle's best friend in "Twilight," not to mention she's been nominated for an Oscar, a Tony and won a bunch of other awards). Kendrick plays Scott's baby sis alongside other talents such as Chris Evans -- an evil ex, Kieran Culkin, and, of course, Mary Elizabeth Winstead, a.k.a. Pilgrim's new lady, Ramona Flowers.

    But before we give too much of the movie away...
