Edgar Wright‘s Scott Pilgrim vs. the World (adapted from the comic) starring Michael Cera has a trailer.  The plot is that Scott Pilgrim falls in love with a pink-haired chick and has to fight her seven evil ex-boyfriends, which in the movie include both Captain America and Superman. Given Edgar Wright’s involvement, I was hoping the trailer would finally get me as interested in this project as everyone else seems to be, but it still just looks kind of camp for camp’s sake. Am I the weird one? Everyone else is crapping their pants over this.

Kapow! Universal has debuted the official teaser trailer for Edgar Wright’s Scott Pilgrim vs. the World based on Bryan Lee O’Malley’s brilliant comic book series and this totally frickin’ rules! I’ve been excited for this since the moment it was announced and damn it looks so awesome!! What an absolutely perfect teaser trailer, from the intro to the awesome footage in-between, and the ending with the adorable Anna Kendrick. We’ve been waiting to see footage for this forever and now it’s here it definitely delivers. For those that don’t know anything about this, it’s basically a video game in a movie, you’ll see what I mean. Just watch & enjoy!  [FirstShowing]

Oookay. Am I wrong for thinking this looks like a hipster-ier version of The Spirit?  And anyway, if my girlfriend told me she had seven evil ex-boyfriends, I probably wouldn’t try to go fight them. I’d just make a scene and leave her ass settin right there in the Arby’s to think about what she done, and maybe next time not be so much of a whore.
