Movie Trailer: Scott Pilgrim Vs. The World by Barbecue Bros

Here’s the recently released full length trailer for the movie directed by Edgar Wright (Shaun of the Dead, Hot Fuzz). Lots of great people in this cast: Michael Cera, Mary Elizabeth Winstead (Death Proof), Aubrey Plaza, Jason Schwartzman, and Anna Kendrick; Kieran Culkin and Brandon Routh also star. Obviously, the movie takes its graphic cues from the comic book, but I’m curious to see how it plays out over the full length of the movie. Still, pretty excited. Scott Pilgrim Vs. The World comes to theaters on August 13.

The trailer for Edgar Wright’s (Shaun of the Dead, Hot Fuzz) upcoming film based on the graphic novel of the same name stars Michael Cera, Mary Elizabeth Winstead, Anna Kendrick, Jason Schwartzman, Aubrey Plaza (“Parks and Recreation”), and several more. To quote The Q, “There Is Nothing About This That Is Not Awesome.”

Meet charming and jobless Scott Pilgrim (Michael Cera). A bass guitarist for totally average garage band Sex Bob-omb, the 22-year-old has just met the girl of his dreamsliterally. The only catch to winning Ramona Flowers (Mary Elizabeth Winstead)? Her seven evil exes are coming to kill him. Genre-smashing filmmaker Edgar Wright (Hot Fuzz, Shaun of the Dead) tells the amazing story of one romantic slackers quest to power up with love in Scott Pilgrim vs. the World.
