With the release of Edgar Wright’s Scott Pilgrim vs. The World a little over a month away, a new international poster for the film has arrived online. Like the other international posters, the focus is on the Evil Exes that hero Scott Pilgrim (Michael Cera) will have to defeat if he wants to date Ramona Flowers (Mary Elizabeth Winstead). So while the U.S. teaser poster boasts that Scott Pilgrim is “an epic of epic epicness”, the rest of the world should know that it’s time to hit love where it hurts. However you want to sell it, the U.S. gets Scott Pilgrim vs. The World on August 13th and it opens in the UK on August 25th. However, lucky folks in the UK can catch it on August 15th when it closes out Empire’s Movie-Con III.
Hit the jump to check out the poster.

Here’s the official synopsis for Scott Pilgrim vs. The World:
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.
