Scott Pilgrim vs. The World trailer online
The first trailer for Scott Pilgrim vs. The World has arrived online and it looks really stylish, has a great set-up, and delivers a big punch, or seven, when the story really kicks in.
There's not that much story to the trailer mind you, but there is plenty of coolness, Michael Cera being Michael Cera, Anna Kendrick being Anna Kendrick, Mary Elizabeth Winstead and a cool appearance from Chris Evans.
The film is pretty simple. Boy meets girl, boy falls in love with girl, girl reveals to boy that he has to defeat her seven evil ex-partners in order to date her. Doesn't seem a problem, but did she just say defeat? Oh yes. It seems that they have powers he didn't quite imagine, and he has to expect them to attack at any moment. If he can defeat them all, he can win her.
Just to complicate things, his own ex arrives back in his life too, but she isn't out to kill him and doesn't have strange powers. Any guesses what's going to happen? You're probably right, but with the trailer looking the way it is I think the fun is in the journey.
