Trailer: Scott Pilgrim vs. The World
March 27, 2010
An epic of epic epicness.
The internet has been abuzz with talk about the Scott Pilgrim movie, to be released in August 2010. I was surprised to discover its based on a comic series of similar fun titles.
“The series is about 23-year-old Canadian Scott Pilgrim, a slacker, hero, and part-time bassist who is living in Toronto and plays bass guitar in the band “Sex Bob-Omb.” He falls in love with American delivery girl Ramona V. Flowers, but must defeat her seven “evil exes” in order to date her.
As Scott gets closer to Ramona, he must face an increasingly vicious rogues’ gallery from her past, from infamous skateboarders to vegan rock stars and fearsomely identical twins. And if he hopes to win his true love, he must vanquish them all before it really is game over.”
This promises to be a very unique movie; warming us with crushes and wowing us with epic fight scenes. Scott Pilgrim could be a real handful, but director Edgar Wright (Hot Fuzz, Shaun of the Dead) has proven that he is more than capable of handling genre mash-ups.
