Director Edgar Wright has just posted the international trailer for his new movie Scott Pilgrim Vs. The World. As I recently spoke with the Shaun of the Dead auteur about his latest genre-splicing extravaganza, I probably shouldn’t offer a personal opinion about it. But I do suggest that if you have even the vaguest interest in superheroes, video games, cool-looking female drummers, visual gags about urination, people getting punched in the face, people getting punched “in the boob,” absurdly large hammers, Arrested Development mini-reunions, and/or Brandon Routh being really rather amusing, then you might care to check out the clip, which I’ve posted after the break.
What do you think of the trailer? Are you counting down the days until the film’s Aug. 13 release? And did you spot the Arrested Development cast member who isn’t Michael Cera?
