Netflixs Reboot of the Greatest Comic Book Movie Aims Higher Than Ever


Comic book adaptations are Hollywood's bread and butter, but it's a tragedy that "Scott Pilgrim vs. the World" sank at the box office after earning less than its budget. However, Netflix has stepped in to right this wrong by premiering the anime series "Scott Pilgrim Takes Off" on Nov. 17, featuring the original cast.

The Box Office Disappointment:

"Scott Pilgrim vs. the World" had all the makings of a hit with its eye-popping visuals and video game elements, but it failed to attract paying audiences. Despite the movie's critical success, it earned less than $50 million against an $80 million budget.

The Netflix Reboot:

Netflix's "Scott Pilgrim Takes Off" is set to premiere on Nov. 17, and it reunites almost the entire cast from the original movie. With Netflix's massive platform, the animated series is expected to have a huge audience.

nimation vs. Live-Action:

The co-writer of "Scott Pilgrim Takes Off" revealed that the animated series allows for monumental fight sequences that would be too expensive to make in live-action. The show's creators believe the animated format gives them the freedom to create spectacular action without budget limitations.

The Big Question:

Now, the only question left is whether "Scott Pilgrim Takes Off" can live up to the high bar set by its predecessor. Fans will have to wait until Nov. 17 to find out if the Netflix reboot can capture the magic of the original comic book movie.
