Last weekend, Scott Pilgrim vs. the World returned to select theaters for the film’s 10th anniversary. It’s actually been 11 years since the movie was released in theaters, but the coronavirus pandemic ruined what would have been last year’s celebrations, so here we are. And it turns out fans were so happy to return to theaters for Edgar Wright‘s adaptation of Bryan Lee O’Malley’s graphic novel series that Universal Pictures will be expanding the anniversary screenings to even more theaters.
But don’t worry if you’re not ready to head back to movie theaters just yet. Because this summer will bring Scott Pilgrim vs. the World home in 4K Ultra HD for the first time ever.
When Scott Pilgrim vs. the World returned to theaters last weekend, it was only in Dolby Cinemas locations with a completely new never-before-seen version of the movie that has been recalibrated for Dolby Atmos and Dolby Vision. That meant the opportunities for some to see the movie for the exclusive one-week engagement (which ends today) were not very plentiful. Thankfully, Universal is letting more people get in on the fun, and Edgar Wright announced the good news:

Starting tomorrow, you’ll be able to see Scott Pilgrim vs. the World in 451 total screens across the United States (via Collider). That includes AMC Theatres locations and some other theaters across the country. Unfortunately, a full theater list wasn’t available at the time of publication, so you’ll have to check your local listings to see where the movie is playing. It’s not clear if this is another one-week engagement or a longer run, so make sure you get your tickets as soon as possible.
For those across the pond hoping for a re-release, Wright added, “I am not in charge of international distribution, nor am I 100% reliable customer service, but there are some Dolby level rumblings for some summer screenings in the UK and a hope to be back in Canada soon.”
The good news is that this summer you can have your own Scott Pilgrim vs. the World anniversary screening:
