While shooting Scott Pilgrim vs. The World in our fair city last year, director Edgar Wright made Toronto his home. When Wright wasn’t busy making his movie—which wasn’t often—he was engaging with the local film community. On several occasions he curated his Wright Stuff film series at a local movie house that shall remain nameless.
But that was 2009. This is 2010 and Scott Pilgrim is about to be released. To celebrate Wright’s hipster video game odyssey he is bringing The Wright Stuff back to Toronto. Starting this Friday, August 6th the Toronto Underground Cinema will play host to Wright and The Wright Stuff all weekend!
7:00 — Shaun of the Dead (Edgar Wright, 2004)
9:30 — Hot Fuzz (Edgar Wright, 2007)
7:00 — Flash Gordon (Mike Hodges, 1980)
9:30 — Riki-Oh: The Story of Ricky (Lam Ngai Kai, 1991)
7:00 — Ferris Bueller’s Day Off (John Hughes, 1986)
9:30 — Rushmore (Wes Anderson, 1998)
It’s sure to be a fun weekend at the Underground, especially if you’re a fan of Edgar Wright or if you are looking forward to Scott Pilgrim vs. The World.
