Evil-ex marks the spot. The mind-blowing anime series Scott Pilgrim Takes Off, featuring the voices of the entire cast from Edgar Wright’s 2010 classic, is coming to Netflix on 17 November.

To celebrate, on that very same evening at a central London location, we are giving Empire VIP members an exclusive chance to experience the action on a big screen, and will be screening the first three episodes of the new show. Not only that, but Edgar Wright will be there in person, possibly to reveal when he will finally make Action Doctor. These tickets will go faster than a Sex Bob-Omb guitar solo. Don’t delay.

This event is exclusively for Empire VIPs. VIP Members are eligible for all events, however live events will have limited capacity and tickets will be allocated on a first come, first served basis.
