Scott Pilgrim vs. the WorldScott Pilgrim not only has to defeat Ramona Flowers' Seven Evil Exes, he also battle Julia Roberts and Sylvester Stallone at the box office. In what amounts to, for all intents and purposes, the last weekend of the summer movie season, three big-budget wide releases -- that couldn't be any more different from each other -- are headed to theaters this weekend.

Best Bet: 'Scott Pilgrim vs. the World'

Starring: Michael Cera, Jason Schwartzman, Mary Elizabeth Winstead, Ellen Wong
Directed by: Edgar Wright
What It's About:
Toronto native Scott Pilgrim is in love with Ramona Flowers. The only problem? To date Ramona, Scott must defeat her Seven Evil Exes. Based on the popular comic book, Scott Pilgrim plays out like a early '90s era Super Nintendo video game.
Why Should You See It? 'Scott Pilgrim' just might be the most unique film of the summer. While other big movies opening this weekend fall into the traps of playing to their respective demographics, 'Pilgrim' has a quirky charm that's hard to define. Plus, the surreal nature of the visuals leads to a refreshing "anything might happen" storyline.
You Might Like It If You Like: 'Shaun of the Dead', 'Hot Fuzz,' 'Youth in Revolt,' 'Superbad' (really any movie starring Michael Cera), 'Tron'
