Edgar Wrights next film Scott Pilgrim VS. The World is set to be one of the most different and original films in a long time. Based on the come book series written by Bryan Lee O’Malley, Pilgrim tells the story of a charming and jobless 22-year old who must defeat his new girlfriends seven evil ex-boyfriends in order to win her heart. It stars Michael Cera, Mary Elizabeth Winstead, Kieran Culkin, Chris Evans, Anna Kendrick, Brand Routh, Allison Pill, and Jason Schwartman.

Just when the first released trailer touched our nerdy parts in ways we never thought possible Universal Studios just went full monty on us and released  a  new, totally epic, trailer. This new trailer offers a wee bit more detail surrounding the story and a few new action sequences.

With trailers like this, the Scott Pilgrim film is most certainly reinforcing expectations. Unveiling itself as a kind of visually dynamic experince like none other. Along with Michael Cera as the lead and Edgar Wright directing, we can’t help but  await with baited breath.

August 13th 2010 (release date) can’t come soon enough
