Ten years ago, Edgar Wright unleashed his third movie upon the world: Scott Pilgrim Vs. The World – a pop culture firecracker bursting with epic fights, 8-bit video game stylings, garage rock fuzz and a then-largely-unknown ensemble that spent the next decade conquering Hollywood.

To mark one decade of Wright’s adaptation of Bryan Lee O’Malley’s beloved graphic novels, read Empire’s original Scott Pilgrim feature from 2010 – going on set in Toronto, talking to Wright, O’Malley, Michael Cera, Chris Evans, Jason Schwartzman, and producer Nira Park.
