Trailer: Scott Pilgrim vs The World

on Thursday, March 25, 2010
YEAHHH BUDDDDDDDDDDDDY. Finally, finally, finally, the first 'Scott Pilgrim vs The World' trailer has dropped. This is the Edgar Wright ('Spaced', 'Shaun Of The Dead', 'Hot Fuzz') adaptation of Bryan Lee O'Malley's still uncompleted 'Scott Pilgrim' comic book series. We've had the confusingly brilliant photos (see below) and the not so epic teaser poster but this is what we've been waiting for.

Michael Cera in Scott Pilgrim vs The World
Brief plot synopsis: "Meet charming and jobless Scott Pilgrim (Michael Cera). A bass guitarist for garage band Sex Bob-omb, the 22-year-old has just met the girl of his dreams…literally. The only catch to winning Ramona Flowers (Mary Elizabeth Winstead)? Her seven evil exes are coming to kill him..."

If you want it in super duper killer hi-def then head over to Apple to see it. Otherwise, enjoy the embed below.

There is too much to say here but the gist of it is typical Michael Cera film turns into crazed action, complete with pastiche Adam West-era 'Batman' style sound and visual effects updated for the 21st century. I feel some sound editing/mixing Oscar nominations await.

Plus some nice glimpses at the supporting cast including the lovely Anna Kendrick and supposed new Captain America Chris Evans. No, not the ginger one. And with Metric, Broken Social Scene and Beck adding to the soundtrack, there's a lot to be excited for.

'Scott Pilgrim vs The World' will be released on August 6th (UK) and Aug 13th (US)
