Super Slacker, Scott Pilgrim and Thomas “Neo” (The One) Anderson are from different sides of the playing field. One fights to save the remainder of his race while the other drinks Coke Zero while trying to survive dating one naughty girl. Yet, what happens when you throw one part Video Game humor with one part Kung-Fu, shoot-em up action and toss them in a blender? You get a remix mashup of epic proportions!
Thanks to AEmovieguy’s faux film trailer “Scott Pilgrim Vs. The Matrix” you get a wonderful blend of both franchises, but still making sense the whole time. AEmovieguy’s description of this remixed trailer is a fantastic twist on each of it’s respected films, married into a really clever (and plausible) plot synopsis for newly named “Scott New Pilgrim”
Watch it for yourself but please, control your whoah’s
Once upon a time, while serving as battery fodder for machines who’ve imprisoned the human race to a cyber reality, Scott Neo Pilgrim met his dreamgirl, Ramona Trinity Flowers, at a Canadian collegian party for 30-year-old drug and prostitution ringers. Upon being freed from The Matrix, Pilgrim seeks out Miss Flowers, oblivious to the fact that Morphew Patel, the very man who took Pilgrim in, is an ex-boyfriend of hers. Enraged after seeing Pilgrim and Flowers getting flirtatious at the yearly Zion Stock, Patel challenges Pilgrim to a dojo duel for Flower’s hand. Following a narrow victory over Patel, Pilgrim has earned his trust and an explanation: Miss Flowers has Seven Evil Exes that Pilgrim must defeat to prove his heart muscle…but, hey, they can make out!
