An awesome new international Scott Pilgrim vs. The World trailer has been released and I think it sells the film perfectly. Not only does it do a better job explaining the film to people who have never heard of Scott Pilgrim, but it offers fans of the books lots of new footage. In fact, this is our first real taste of Brandon Routh as Todd Ingram and he looks fantastic in the part. Trust me, if you’ve been hearing all the insane buzz about Scott Pilgrim, watch this trailer and I think you’ll understand why. I cannot wait to see this movie.
If you want even more Pilgrim, check out Matt’s recently posted Set Visit Report and Video Blog and our recent interviews with cast members Johnny Simmons, Ellen Wong, Alison Pill and Michael Cera, Jason Schwartzman and Director Edgar Wright. Scott Pilgrim Vs. The World comes out August 13th.
And according to director Edgar Wright, the songs featured in trailer are:
- ‘Big Ideas’ – LCD Soundsystem
- ‘2 Kindsa Love’ – Jon Spencer Blues Explosion
- ‘It’s Getting Boring By The Sea’ – Blood Red Shoes
- ‘Invaders Must Die’ – The Prodigy
Here’s the official synopsis:
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 dreams…literally. 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 slacker’s quest to power up with love in Scott Pilgrim vs. the World.
Scott Pilgrim has never had a problem getting a girlfriend. It’s getting rid of them that proves difficult. From the girl who kicked his heart’s ass–and now is back in town–to the teenage distraction he’s trying to shake when Ramona rollerblades into his world, love hasn’t been easy. He soon discovers, however, his new crush has the most unusual baggage of all: a nefarious league of exes controls her love life and will do whatever it takes to eliminate him as a suitor.
As Scott gets closer to Ramona, he must face an increasingly vicious rogues’ gallery from her past–from infamous skateboarders to vegan rock stars and fearsomely identical twins. And if he hopes to win his true love, he must vanquish them all before it really is game over.
