Universal has released the first full Scott Pilgrim vs. The World trailer now that 100,000 fans have “liked” Scott Pilgrim on the official Facebook page. If you thought the first trailer was cool, this one will punch you in the face like a boxer on steroids. I’m really not joking around when I say I’m blown away by how well done this new trailer is. The only negative is at the end of the trailer, someone has added the tag line “it’s on like Donkey Kong.” If the tag line wasn’t there it would probably be my favorite trailer of the year. Either way, director Edgar Wright’s Scott Pilgrim is looking more and more like it’s going to be an incredible movie and something special. But from the man that directed Shaun of the Dead and Hot Fuzz…is that really a surprise? Hit the jump to check it out:

Here’s the official synopsis:
Meet charming and jobless Scott Pilgrim (Michael Cera). A bass guitarist for 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 fearsome identical twins. And if he hopes to win his true love, he must vanquish them all before it really is game over.
