The cast of Scott Pilgrim vs. The World were collectively required to master a vast array of new skills for the third film from British director Edgar Wright (Shaun of the Dead, Hot Fuzz). Those many non-musicians who essay band members in the movie had to learn how to play instruments so that they could convincingly thrash along to songs penned by such real-life acts as Beck and Canadian rock band Broken Social Scene. Meanwhile, those involved in the film’s numerous fight sequences were made to attend an intensive martial arts course that preceded the film’s six month Toronto shoot. “I got kicked in the throat during the training,” recalls Michael Cera. “I expected it to be excruciating, but it didn’t hurt at all, which was really confusing. I was probably so pumped with adrenalin that I just didn’t feel it,” semi-jokes the comic actor, whose pre-Scott Pilgrim resume is notably light on chopsocky action scenes, “I’m just a walking ball of adrenalin waiting to explode.”
