Updated with winner! Wanna win a pair of Mondo's sold out Scott Pilgrim posters? Sure ya' do!

UPDATED! The lucky winner of over 3500 entries is Rocky Treadway from Rexburg, ID! Congrats to Rocky and thanks to all who entered!

Ahoy, squirts! Quint here. The fine folks at Mondo have set aside a pair of their limited Scott Pilgrim posters by the very talented Martin Ansin just for one of you lucky bastards. This is incredibly nice of them considering they sold out of these immediately after offering them for sale. Here's what's up for grabs: The limited 24X36 Martin Ansin screen print with metallic inks (limited to 415) and the variant "Nega" Edition (limited to only 140). Combined the retail price on these two posters was $125... God only knows what the eBay price is.

And

This is going to be a simple contest with one winner getting both the regular poster and the variant print. You need to email mondopilgrim1up@gmail.com using the subject line "I want these posters so bad I'd fight a Vegan Superman for 'em!" (long, I know) and include your mailing address. The contest is open to anybody anywhere in the world. If I catch any double submissions I'll be deleting ya'. Be fair, one entry per email address, yeah? I'm going to choose at random... I typically pick a dozen entries randomly then pick the winner from there... just as randomly. It's a very scientific process that involves me closing my eyes and pointing, but I don't want to bore you with my mastery of science. The contest runs from the moment this is published to 11:59pm CST Friday, August 20th. I'll update the article with the name of the winner and connect the lucky lad or lass with the Mondo folks! Good luck! -Quint quint@aintitcool.com Follow Me On Twitter

    "Hipsters are the friends who sneer when you cop to liking Coldplay. They're the people who wear t-shirts silk-screened with quotes from movies you've never heard of and the only ones in America who still think Pabst Blue Ribbon is a good beer. They sport cowboy hats and berets and think Kanye West stole their sunglasses. Everything about them is exactingly constructed to give off the vibe that they just don't care." — Time, July 2009

    The pointer's not funny I'm funny!

    by Righteous Brother

    The problem with Scott Pilgrim, is that it looks too much like its trying to be a cult film. And us real geeks don't like that sort of thing, we can see we're being targeted a mile off, and we rebel. We're the ones who decide if something is cool or worthy of our attention or not, not the fucking studios. I love Shaun of the Dead, and I loved Spaced - but this Scott Pilgrm just leaves me cold. And I'm so Scott Pilgrim fan - you just come across as tragic.

    by NightArrows

    Who gives a flying FUCK what the box office success or failure is of this film, outside of those invested in it? You dumb mother fuckers prattle on and on here about it "being a flop". Get a fucking life. If you like the film, great, if you don't, too bad and move onto the next film. The assembled lot of these forums is the lowest of the low and I pray to baby-come-teenage Jesus™ every night that Darwin comes for most of you. And to the cunt who tried to lump "us real geeks" together with your bullshit call to action on what is worthy of cult status? GO fuck a house cat. You sound as pathetic as the emo kids trying to rebel against the system. Pay no attention to the advertising and simply see a film for what it is, make a decision on whether you like it or not and that is that. It's REAL easy to ignore the hype and talking heads.

    Scott pilgrim won't do well next weekend

    by RedBull_Werewolf

    Expendables will likely see a big drop but probabaly bring in at least 10 million, Piranha 3D is going to surprise I think and likely win the weekend with 25-30 million. But scott Pilgrim is going to fade away pretty fast, it will likely have a MacGruber like box office run, all but forgoten in under a month, except Macgruber only cost 10 mil, Pilgrim was like a 60 mil budget making it a big bob-omb for universal and hopefully Marvel realises that edgar wright should not be directing and hands ant-man to someone else

    No offense, but...

    by Ribbons

    ...like two months ago I said Harry was going to turn his readers against Scott Pilgrim by shoving it down our throats and that's pretty much exactly what's happened, by the looks of things. Do you guys who run the site not notice this happen each time a new film you decide everybody must love comes out? It's cool that you're friends with Edgar Wright and love shrines to geekiness and all, but even half of the articles you ran on Scott Pilgrim would have been overkill. <br> <br> That said the movie itself is good, and funny, and full of comic book and video game references, so unless you're absolutely allergic to twentysomething "hipsters" then you'd probably like it. However, that Struzan-esque poster doesn't match the tone of the film at all.

    Love Edgar Wright. He has excellent taste in movies, a great sense of humour and his first two flicks were amazing. Scott Pilgrim just doesn't excite me: like everything else about Toronto, SP just tries way too hard.

  • Aug. 17, 2010, 1:16 p.m. CST

    I can honestly say... no.

    by Heckles

    Wasn't surprised this flick went into the toilet. If you read this site, however, you would think it was the next 'Avatar'. There has to be a sponsorship deal. Always thought some reviews here were studio-driven. Probably the majority. Weak.

    Floppity flop flop

    by Heckles

    Box Office numbers help and hurt a movie. Shitty opening weekend, no one wants to give it a try. Monster weekend, people will check it out. For better or worse.<br><br>And I would say the BO is a good gauge of how great a movie is. Check out the top 20 highest grossing movies of all time. Tell me some of your favorite flicks aren't on there. <br><br>Personally, I could give a shit how a movie does. I skipped Pilgrim because it looks fucking stupid. The fact it bombed makes me think I'm not alone. For those who dig it, rock on. Buy the DVD so the studio can try and break even. Get it from Amazon via the AICN link so they can make money too.

    What Will Hipsters Do When They Run Out Of Irony?

    by LaserPants

    And have to ACTUALLY like something or take some sort of stand on ANYTHING and actually mean it? Oh! Right! It's called GROWING UP. Well, that's inevitable, right? Well, how about ACTUALLY CREATING SOMETHING OF SUBSTANCE? How about GENERATING A DISCERNABLE IDEA OR AESTHETIC YOU HAVEN'T RIPPED OFF and DEFANGED FOR EASE OF CONSUMPTION. I FUCKING! HATE! HIPSTERS! HATE THEM! They are THE WORST GENERATION. <br><br>Seriously, there's always been annoying scenesters, but Hipsters (tm) are THE WORST wannabe subculture of all time. OF ALL TIME! At least in the 80s (and somewhat in the 90s; that's when the worm started to turn) the underground music scene was REAL and populated with cool people making cool stuff just for the sake of it and maybe making some friends. You fucking douchebag millenials don't have that; you have some sad pose of that in which you endlessly devour each other, and yourselves, in neverending feedback loop of boring, bland, creatively bankrupt self-obsession. You haven't created ONE standout thing. Not ONE! It's AMAZING! You cannibalize other stuff, remove any of the cool context that made it cool, and then jerk off to it as if you made something new. It's a SAD, lame state of affairs when the OLDEHEADS are COOLER than the kids. I mean, really. You should all commit suicide now.

    Hipsters

    by JoeD

    I've found the term is completely useless. It's too big a tent. If you are young and you live, once lived, or aspire to one day live near a city (any city, doesn't even have to be a city) then someone probably thinks you're a hipster. If you own a bicycle, you're a hipster. If you own a new model car, you're a hipster. If you own an old model car you're trying to fix up, you're a hipster. If you use a skateboard, you're a hipster. If you drink bottled water, you're a hipster. If you don't drink bottled water because it's stupid to pay for bottled water, you're a hipster. If you have ever planned on entering a Starbucks, you're a hipster. If you like a new band, you're a hipster. If you only like old bands, you're a hipster. If you're in a band, you're a hipster. If you hate all bands, you're a hipster. If you like comic books, hate comic books, like movies, hate movies, call movies "films", are directing a movie, shower twice a day, haven't showered in a month, part your hair, shaved your head, grown a beard, shaved your beard, owned a dog, hate dogs, eat cats, live on the moon, fly your pet emu to work, or listen to the Arcade Fire, then you indeed, are a hipster. There's just too much overlap into too many other subcultures for it to even be a subculture. I hate them all the same, but the term has just lost all meaning. We should all just go back to labeling douchey people douchebags and call it a day.

You mean the Top 20 that includes Spider-Man 3, The Phantom Menace, Pirates Of The Caribbean 2, Shrek 2, Transformers 2, the new Alice In Wonderland, The Passion Of The Christ, Revenge Of The Sith and fucking Titanic? Half that list is GARBAGE NONSENSE. People eat up shit all the time, and the times when they go for something with any quality at all, its because the movie can pass through their stupid fucking brains with very little effort. The less they have to think, the better. Most of the good movies in the top 20 could be understood by a 4 year old. Hell, most of that list is films made for children. Give me a fucking break with "The Box Office says a lot about a film's quality." Do you realize how many of the greatest films ever made were box office underperformers, if not downright flops? Are you even a fan of cinema? Wow, I have to stop myself, cause I don't think I want the answer to that question.

    by DiscoGodfather

    It was fun. You know, fun? Remember that? Ahh, whatever. I saw it, I liked it, I told others to see it and they liked it too. All this talk about box office and hipsters and target audiences and irony and geeks means squat to me. When I decide what movie I want to see, I decide based only on my own opinions and instincts and not those of others. Sure, I've been optimistic and gotten burned (MacGruber), but I've found plenty of movies that I liked a lot among movies that didn't top the box office or faded unfortunately quickly from theatres. I'm glad I trusted my instincts this time and saw a movie I enjoyed, not because I fell into a target demographic or because a bunch of guys on a website told me it was good.

    Here is the thing...

    by Michael_Jacksons_Ghost

    Went to see it opening day. I liked it, but it wasn't anything to "NUT" over. And honestly, Cera reminded me of a robot the whole film...he was the only fucking one in the whole film that I personally thought was a fuck up on Edgar's part. Shit if you made Cera your leading role, I am wondering who he was up against for the role, Norm MacDonald?! Anywho, I love comics, but not "emo" enough to buy the SP books. So, I guess that would explain why I didn't jizz in the theater like others did. Atleast that would explain for the sticky floor.

    Why didn't Ebert review SP v. TW?

    by Ye Not Guilty

    I believe it was screened for critics. I have been curious what Ebert would think about it. Seems he skipped it, though.

    I'm sure this movie is cool.........

    by fat_rancor_keeper

    But actually the constant barrage of references and stories and obnoxious talk-backers completely turned me off from seeing the film.<P> Again I'm sure it's cool & entertaining, but I feel zero urge to see it in the movies (not that I really did before mind you) but in the back of my mind every online cunt touting the movie as the NEXT BIG THING killed the flick for me and everyone I know. <P>Now it'll just be a solid netflix rental in a few months.

    AICN Talkbacker

    by maxjohnson1971

    "I'm sick of unoriginal movies and re-boots and re-makes. Give me something original and fresh and fun and exciting. Something that the suits haven't gotten their mitts on and ruined with the typical Hollywood money grab mentality. I want someone to really take a chance with something fresh and new." Well there is this movie out called Scott Pilgrim vs. the World. It is really fun and new and original and exciting and just a real blast. You should see that. "Ah, that hipster video-game movie that the guys at AICN got paid off to promote the hell out of and pumped up like it was the second coming of Star Wars? Nah, I'll stay away and check out some re-hashed formula movie instead. In the meantime, I'll bitch and moan about the lack of original movies coming out of Hollywood." And there you have it. I thought SPVTW was great.

    Exaggerate much?<P> It's a very broad assumption to claim people who didn't see SPVTW did so in favor of checking out some "re-hashed formula movie" instead. <P> I guess those are THE ONLY OPTION RIGHT? This movie or something re-hashed. <P>Being put off by idiots online or an overabundance of advertising is only part of the equation simply brought up for the purposes of discussion.<P> Instead of getting pissy and sarcastic about it try acting like an adult and simply state why you feel the film is "great". <P>That would prove more useful than a paragraph loaded with argument fallacies and crap.

    Even cam-pirates shunned this one ...

    @ Tenenbaum ... while expendables was floating around online by Saturday, a cam version of Scott P. still has to show up. So far nothing ...

    Fat Rancor Keeper

    by maxjohnson1971

    Sarcasm lost on you much? Of course I was making a point by being pretty broad and all, and no, a re-hash isn't the ONLY option. BUT... My point is that I constantly hear people complain about the lack of something original and then when something original DOES come out, people stay away in droves. Remember all the bitching about the horror re-makes and the cry for something new? Well all the re-makes hit the number one spot at the box office and an original movie like Splice is forgotten in a week. And it took some guts for someone to push Splice to get a wide release. My point is that unless we reward those that take some chances, we will keep getting the remakes and formula movies. SPVTW was fresh. It took some chances. It was just fun and new. It isn't going to change the world and it won't break records all over the world, but just because it was a bit overhyped (and it was on here to be honest) doesn't mean it isn't good.

    What's a "Scott Pilgrim"?

    by FlandersBum

    I'm not 19 anymore, so this Scott Pilgrim thing isn't in my orbit at all. It sounds vaguely familar. I'll ask my 17 year old cousin, maybe he knows. Or one of his friends.

    and you know this... When you make a shitty movie put some tits in it add some blood and guts and then 3d it, instant win. I'm so there dude. Tits, Gore, Really bad 3d. Pilgrim failed. I guess these means no Them/Theylive remake.

    scott pilgrim was amazing, saw it last night.

    by RedHorseVector

    if you didn't like it, you're probably too old or curmudgeonly for me to talk to you. or you're just an aicn talkbacker, in which case no one ever talks to you in real life anyway, so it's no big loss.

    OLDEHEADS are COOLER than the kids

    by BoopyBeepy

    Poor Laserpants. He lives in a world that doesn't exist anymore. Back in my day we had a real underground scene, we made things that were REAL, and MEANT something, and CHANGED the WORLD. WE liked things that were WORTH being liked. WAH WAH . Oldeheads are cool than the kids. LAME state of AFFAIRS. The OLD HEADS are COOLER than the KIDS, those HIPSTERS, those HIPSTERS aren't as cool as us OLD HEADS. WE know what is COOL.The OLD HEADS, know what is COOL and REAL. WE, the OLD HEADS, would CONSUME things that were REAL and were of SUBSTANCE. NOW THE AFFAIRS ARE SAD BECAUSE AICN IS THE ONLY PLACE WHERE I CAN FIND SOMEONE TO LISTEN TO ME AND TELL ME MY IDEAS ARE REALLY COOL AND CORRECT TO HELP ME GET THROUGH MY LONG DAYS WHILE THE UNDERSERVING HIPSTER GENERATION GETS BLOWN BY HOT 19 YEAR OLD HIPSTER GIRLS.LASERPANTS. I AM RELIC. LASER PANTS as the REAL, COOL, RELIC. LASER PANTS, a RELIC, that MEANS something IMPORTANT.

    Good job Wright. A little too cutesy for my taste though, and Cera's fighting face is goofy. Bring on the 3rd chapter of the blood and ice cream trilogy.

    applescruff... settle down, and I agree.

    by Heckles

    "Check out the top 20 highest grossing movies of all time." I might have talked out of my ass on that one.<br><br>I was thinking more along the lines of Star Wars, E.T., maybe The Dark Knight. Wasn't taking into account all the turds that made it on the top 20 all-time list. You're right, point taken. Maybe I'm trying to forget that 'Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen' is the 10th highest grossing. <br><br>The simple fact is, more often that not, shitty movies flop in the B.O. Do I need to suffer through 'The Last Airbender' to know it sucks, or can I go by pittance it generated? It is a good gauge. Do I only go to movies that debut #1? Fuck no. By no stretch do only 'great' films make it on the all-time list. <br><br>I am a fan of cinema. I'm also a fan of not tossing cash at a flick that looks lame and makes no money. Truth be told, Pilgrim could have made a ton of cash, still wouldn't have checked it out.

  • Aug. 18, 2010, 5:24 p.m. CST

    And I meant 'Jonah Hex'...

    by Heckles

    ...not 'The Last Airbender.' I think that flick actually did alright.
