giantpredatorymollusk asked: So why did the Scott Pilgrim movie flop?

Because not enough people bought tickets to see it. Which is sad, as it was pretty good.

I put it down to bad timing. The marketing relied heavily on Michael Cena as a draw just as the viewing public was getting sick of Michael Cena.

Completely missing the point of Scott’s arc in the comics didn’t help, but to be fair that point is so invisible until the last volume as to be arguably a retcon.

Still, seriously entertaining movie that I suspect will be looked back on as a cult classic.

… you mean Michael Cera. The alternative is too horrifying to contemplate.

Too late, I just contemplated it.
