Scott Pilgrim Vs. The World (2009)

Edgar Wright co-wrote, produced, and directed Scott Pilgrim vs. the World, a 2010 romantic action comedy film based on Bryan Lee O'Malley's Scott Pilgrim comic book series. It stars Michael Cera as Scott Pilgrim, a slacker musician who is fighting the seven wicked exes of his current love, Ramona Flowers, portrayed by Mary Elizabeth Winstead, while simultaneously attempting to win a competition to obtain a record contract. Following the publication of the first volume, a cinematic version of the comics was suggested, and Wright was quickly connected to the project.

Filming in Toronto started in March 2009 and ended in August of that same year. The film debuted on July 22, 2010, after a panel discussion at the San Diego Comic-Con International, and was released in North America on August 13.

It was re-released in the United Kingdom on August 21, 2020, and in the United States on April 30, 2021, to commemorate its tenth anniversary.

The film incorporates well-known elements of its Toronto location, as well as images from video games and comic books. It based each fictitious band in the battle of the band’s storyline on actual bands, such as Beck and Metric, with some of the actors also playing.

The elaborate visual effects were created using a mix of digital and traditional techniques. It was a flop at the box office, failing to recover its $85 million budget. However, the picture was well-received by reviewers, who praised its visual flair and wit, and it developed a cult following.

Scott Pilgrim vs. the World has been nominated for over 70 awards and has reached many top 10 lists. It was nominated for the 83rd Academy Awards in the Best Visual Effects category. It has been extensively studied as a transmedia narrative in academic study.

Into The Woods (2014)

Into the Woods is a 2014 American musical fantasy film directed by Rob Marshall and adapted for the screen by James Lapine from his and Stephen Sondheim's Broadway musical of the same name, which premiered in 1986.

Meryl Streep, Emily Blunt, James Corden, Anna Kendrick, Chris Pine, Tracey Ullman, Christine Baranski, Lilla Crawford, Daniel Huttlestone, MacKenzie Mauzy, Billy Magnussen, and Johnny Depp star in the film, which is produced by Walt Disney Pictures.

The film is based on the Grimm Brothers' fairy tales "Little Red Riding Hood," "Cinderella," "Jack and the Beanstalk," and "Rapunzel," and follows a childless couple who set out to break a furious witch's curse. The protagonists are eventually compelled to confront the unexpected repercussions of their actions.

Following many failed efforts by various studios and producers to adapt the musical to film, Disney announced in 2012 that it would make a film version with Marshall directing and John DeLuca producing.

The film's principal shooting began in September 2013 and took place completely in the United Kingdom, including at London's Shepperton Studios. On December 8, 2014, Into the Woods had its global debut at the Ziegfeld Theatre in New York City, and on December 25, 2014, it was distributed theatrically in the United States.

The film was a commercial success and received mostly positive reviews, with praise for its acting performances (especially Streep's), visual style, production value, and musical numbers, but criticism for its lighter yet darker tone compared to the source material (which has a comedic tone) and the changes made for the film translation. It earned a total of $213 million globally.

The American Film Institute called Into the Woods one of the top 11 greatest films of 2014; it earned three Academy Award nominations, including one for Streep for Best Supporting Actress, and three Golden Globe nominations, including one for Best Motion Picture Musical or Comedy.
