The Scott Pilgrim Trailer is online

This weekend as I was doing my weekly genre news update (There's actually a process I use to attempt to keep up to date - but that's the kind of neurosis that deserves a post of its own), I saw that the trailer for the upcoming film adaptation of Scott Pilgrim vs. the World is online.

As long-time (and by that I mean since last August) readers of my blog are probably aware, I'm a huge fan of the comic series - it's awesome, it's Canadian, and it's references to my particular slice of pop culture are off the scale. At the same time, the movie could let me down, after all I was pretty excited when I heard that they were making a big screen version of The Spirit.

So lets take a brief glimpse at the pros and cons of this big screen adaption.

Pros: The fact that the film was made in Canada and has a Canadian star (Michael Cera). The fact that it's directed by Edgar Wright (Hot Fuzz, Shawn of the Dead, Spaced). The fact that I really love the source material.

Cons: Actually only one - I really love the source material. I think that this actually makes it a little harder for me to warm up to the story, as I've got such a special fondness for the comics.

In the end, I have to say I'm pretty excited - but don't let me keep all the excitement to myself, check out the trailer here for yourself.

  1. I'd love to hear about your keeping-up-to-date neurosis, because I need one myself. (A system, I mean. I'm neurotic enough already.)
