Scott Pilgrim New Scott Pilgrim Clip is Awkward Fun

The 2010 Comic-Con kicks off today in San Diego and one of the flicks that looks to make a big impression is the slacker hero, comic book, pic Scott Pilgrim Vs. The World.

If you’re unable to attend the California-based festivities, you can still enjoy this new clip from the film, which features Scott (Michael Cera) showing off a bit of the good ol’ Pilgrim charm in front of his new, potential beau Ramona Flowers (Mary Elizabeth Winstead).

Proving that he’s more than just a schlubby, 22-year old guitarist in a mediocre band turns out to be the least of Scott Pilgrim’s concerns in the film – especially when he finds out that he has to battle Ramona’s seven evil exes – before he can peacefully date the girl of his dreams.

Both the official trailer and international trailer for Scott Pilgrim vs. The World emphasize the eccentric nature of the film’s humor and colorful fight sequences.

This new clip, courtesy of MTV, titled “Hey” (which you can watch below) reminds us that director Edgar Wright can still provide both realistic as well as entertaining character dynamics and relationships – just as he did in Shaun of the Dead.

It would be appropriate to make a joke about how Scott Pilgrim showcases Michael Cera stepping out of his niche – by playing a socially awkward young man. Then again, he does play the part quite well. The same could also be said for Anna Kendrick (Scott’s sister, Stacey) – who takes on the role of an uptight young woman.

Jokes aside, the clip does a great job of whetting our appetite for the film – which is now less than one month away.

One thing, Scott’s ex (Ellen Wong) was actually named Knives?  Did her parents never watch Trigun and realize that couldn’t possibly lead to anything good?

Scott Pilgrim vs. The World arrives in theaters in the U.S. on August 13th, 2010.

  1. That is a weird but funny clip LMAO!!!!!!!

  2. Cool. But Scott is a bassist, not a guitarist.

  3. I love Michael’s run more than anything in the world.

  4. Everything I see of this film just makes me want to see it even more which is very, very rare for me.

    I absolutely cannot wait for this film!

    @Sandy, sshhhh, don’t mention Trigun. How long before it’s smashed with the the Hollywood ‘remake’ bat. I can honestly say I never want to hear about a live action Trigun as long as I live (or Cowboy Bebop for that matter)!

  5. haha….im gonna love this film itll be the best one hell do…..

  6. “Beau” does not mean what you think it means. :)

  7. Well, there is a sort of “Crying Game” scene that goes down between Ramona and Scott… ;)

    Seriously though, beau doesn’t always mean boyfriend – admittedly, it tends to more often than not nowadays. I guess I just like the term myself.

    • By definition, the word “beau” refers to a man. (I haven’t read the book, so I don’t know if the Crying Game reference makes the term accurate in this case. :) )

      • If it makes you feel better, know that the life of a grammar Nazi on the Internet is an incredibly painful one!

  8. Is it just me, or does Michael Cera seem younger in every movie he’s in?

    He looks 12 in this movie!!!

    • No. He does look younger.

  9. Cera keeps playing the same type of characters over again

  10. That was a funny clip. It has that comic book panel presence with some anime humor and emotion to it. Looks great.
