Hey, another Scott Pilgrim vs The World trailer is here

Scott Pilgrim vs The World is a video game fan's wet dream, though I'll get more hate mail if I don't point out that it's based on a comic book series. Clearly though, said comic book series is partially inspired by video games. Either that or the film is an entirely inaccurate retelling of the comic book. If I were a good reporter, I'd have already read it. I'm not. The trailer, and my thoughts, are below.

The plot is the most literal translation of bringing baggage into a relationship yet. Scott Pilgrim (Michael Cera) meets a girl and must physically battle her seven evil exes in crazy Manga-style battles. Think back to the old 60s Batman series, only cooler. Every time there's a punch, we see a "POW!" come across the screen. It's really creative, but also squarely aimed at my male, geeky demographic.

The film is from Director Edgar Wright--who made the hilarious Shaun of the Dead and Hot Fuzz--and hits theaters August 10. You can check out the original teaser trailer here.
