If there’s anything summer 2010 movies have been severely lacking, it’s fun and originality. Scott Pilgrim vs. The World (based on the comic of the same name) wants to change all that.
Michael Cera– whose one-note falsetto, whispered shtick is one I’m not quite tired of yet– is Scott Pilgrim, a dude who meets the girl of his dreams and is subsequently tasked with knocking her seven evil exes the crap out… in amplified video game/comic book style. The fact that it’s directed by the comedically capable Edgar Wright (Sean of the Dead and its much better brother, Hot Fuzz) is a bonus.
The new international trailer has arrived filled and overflowing with internationality. If this Prodigy-soaked ode to comic/pixelated geekery doesn’t get your juices flowing, either you’re too old or hate root beer floats, because this sucker is oozing hipster cred and light, frothy fun. Yeah, I strained that analogy, but click here and see for yourself.
Scott Pilgrim and his world of geekery-meets-reality debuts August 13th.
Enough talk. Let’s fight.
