"Scott Pilgrim Vs. The World" may have its roots in the graphic novel world, but at its core it's a love story about a young musician who must go to great lengths to win over the girl of his dreams.When Scott Pilgrim, played by Michael Cera, falls for rollerblading delivery girl Ramona Flowers, played by Mary Elizabeth Winstead, he has no idea what he's in for. But as Scott gets closer to Ramona, he discovers her seven evil exes are coming to kill him and he must defeat each one in order to win her heart.

"I don't think you need to be a fan of graphic novels or know this particular series of books to enjoy this film. It really is for everyone because it's just a fun romantic-action-comedy extravaganza," said Jason Schwartzman, who plays one of Ramona's evil exes. "It's just purely fun and unusual. I don't think anyone has seen anything quite like this. You don't have to know comic books to love this movie."

Winstead, Ellen Wong, and "Twilight" star Anna Kendrick make up part of the girl power in this movie.

"It's a real story that anyone can relate to, you know. You can find yourself in any one of the characters in the film," said Wong.

"And it's also just flat out funny and entertaining. And I don't think there's anyone who could watch it and not say that. You just have to kind of suspend your disbelief a little bit and go with it and just have an amazing time," said Winstead.

Brandon Routh, who plays another evil ex, sees no age limit as far who will enjoy "Scott Pilgrim".

"My parents will go see the movie because I'm in it, and they're friends will go see it because I'm in it, but I know, I believe they will really enjoy it," said Routh. "Anything is possible, it's a video game, anything is possible in this movie. If you go in with that attitude I think all your senses will be activated and you'll have a unique experience.

The PG-13 movie also stars Chris Evans, Kieran Culkin, Aubrey Plaza, Mark Webber, Alison Pill and Mae Whitman. It opens in theaters Friday, August 13.
