Thanks to a little help of 100,000 Facebook fans (myself included), Universal Pictures has released a brand new full-length trailer for Scott Pilgrim vs. the World.
Building off of the minute-and-a-half Scott Pilgrim released in March, this new full-length trailer really pushes the action and comedy elements to another level and should give you many more reasons to see this. trailer
Directed by Edgar Wright, the man behind the incredible comedies Shaun of the Dead and Hot Fuzz, Scott Pilgrim Vs. The World tells the story of a 23-year-old Canadian and part-time Bassist (Scott Pilgrim) who falls in love with an American girl named Ramona V. Flowers. But before their relationship can blossom, Pilgrim must defeat her seven evil exes. And when I say “defeat” I mean win an all-out battle. All is made clear in this trailer:

Obvious in its overtly stylistic nature, the movie and its unusual emphasis on comic book style action scenes and visuals plays out extremely well and totally works for the story its trying to tell. When first hearing that an adaptation of the Oni Press comic book series would be made into a feature film, I was a little worried but it turns out my concern was completely unfounded.
Scott Pilgrim vs. the World stars Michael Cera, Mary Elizabeth Winstead, Kieran Culkin, Chris Evans, Anna Kendrick, Brandon Routh and Jason Schwartzman.
I’m very excited to see Scott Pilgrim, later this summer. How about you?
Scott Pilgrim vs. the World hits theaters August 13, 2010.
