"Scott Pilgrim vs. The World"

Movie Trailer Review

By our guest blogger, Jeremy Wilkinson

After three years, Edgar Wright is back in the director's chair. This time, he's adapting the comic series "Scott Pilgrim." From the looks of the international trailer released not too long ago, "Scott Pilgrim vs. the World" looks as if its shaping up to be one of the most entertaining films of the summer.

Michael Cera is Scott Pilgrim, bassist for the band Sex Bob-omb, who ends up falling for the mysterious Ramona Flowers. But, before he can be with Ramona, he has to defeat her "seven evil exes." Why? I'm not really sure.

"Scott Pilgrim" has a solid cast in front of the camera. Michael Cera has proved himself in other leading roles, and it looks as if the character he is playing is similar to others he's done in the past. Mary Elizabeth Winstead, who plays Ramona, has also been in quite a few movies in the past five years, though mostly in supporting roles. Both look as if they'll be handling the somewhat off-beat characters and plot.

The trailer also shows off the style of the film, which is filled with imagery usually relegated to comics (like the word 'whip' being shown onscreen when someone is thrown). When a 'pee bar' is shown, it also becomes clear video games have influenced the look as well.

There is no doubt in this reviewer's mind that "Scott Pilgrim" will be worth going to see. The skills of those in front of the camera will be channeled well with Edgar Wright at the helm. "Shaun of the Dead" and "Hot Fuzz" were both hilarious, managing to balance their serious premises with plenty of comedy. They also made viewers care about what happens to the characters in both movies, proving even dark comedies can have a heart.

"Scott Pilgrim vs. the World" is currently set to be released on August 13, 2010. You can check out the trailer below and let the world know your own thoughts in the comments section.
