Pilgrim's Pride 

Does the summer's geekiest movie stand a chance against the competition?

Scott Pilgrim vs. the World hits theaters on Friday, it's opening against two other big end-of-the-summer movies: The Expendables and Eat Pray Love. In Scott Pilgrim, the nerdy title character — played by nerdy actor Michael Cera — must defeat his new girlfriend's seven evil exes before they can take their relationship to the next level. It's a total geekfest, wrapping comic books (the movie is based on graphic novels), video games (the fights resemble arcade battles), and indie rock (Scott Pilgrim plays bass in a band) into its narrative. But does Scott Pilgrim stand a chance against the other two movies opening this week?
