Earlier tonight, when Peter from Slashfilm and I were going to a ShoWest dinner, we noticed the first Scott Pilgrim vs. The World theater standee had been put on display outside the room.  While Edgar Wright’s movie doesn’t get released until this August, this is the first real piece of promotional art that Universal has released, as the first poster I put online yesterday was confirmed as just a promo poster.

While some of you might not be familiar with the Scott Pilgrim comic by Bryan Lee O’Malley, trust me when i say, this is a movie you should really be looking forward to.  Also, as the standee says, it’s an epic of epic epicness.  Hit the jump to check out a bunch of photos of the standee.

UPDATED with better images!

Scott Pilgrim vs The World movie theater standee (2).jpgHere’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.

Scott Pilgrim stars Michael Cera, Kieran Culkin, Mary Elizabeth Winstead, Satya Bhabha, Chris Evans, Anna Kendrick, Brie Larson, Alison Pill, Aubrey Plaza, Brandon Routh, Johnny Simmons, Mark Webber, Mae Whitman, Ellen Wong.
