Seriously, having a MAJOR geekgasm over how amazing this looks! Although, I keep thinking about the fact that my lonely little fic (which also uses sound effects in the text like the movie does, and I didn't know that it would when I wrote it, score!) will stop being the only one in the category at ff.net very soon...

Why can't it be August right now?

I know next to nothing about Scott Pilgrim and I HIGHLY APPROVE of this movie. Mainly because of the sound effects text.

YOU MUST READ ITTTTTTTTTTTTTTT.

It's really cute and funny. Meet cute kids plus awesome supporting cast plus sound effects and treats Scott's life like a video game. (Did you hear the "K.O.!!" in the background of the one shot?)

YES. I loved that MOST of all! If someone says "Finish Him" or "Flawless Victory!" I may squee aloud.

ETA: OKAY OKAY WAIT, IS THAT BRANDON ROUTH ATTACKING MICHAEL CERA WITH THE POWER OF ROCK?!

IT WASSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSS. He plays vegan Todd Ingram, in the band "The Clash at Demonhead" with Scott's ex, Envy Adams.

I've been following the production of this movie before I ever knew who Edgar Wright was, lol. But yes, that guy! :D

And REALLY, the graphic novels are KICK. ASS. The trailer is SOOOO faithful to the spirit of the story! ♥♥♥♥♥

Shaun of the Dead and Hot Fuzz are kick ass, so good on them for having Edgar Wright at the helm. ;)

I'll give the graphic novels a look in June. Once school is out, I'm gonna get to all the reading I've missed out on!

I KNOW! I KNOW! I KNOW!

I'm thinking the baby... though I hope the baby comes AFTER the movie, because that'll kill you getting to see it in the theatre!

Haha! Hilarious, and when was the last time you saw a major motion picture with 'kapow' and whatnot?! I know Brandon is in this right? I didn't see him though!

Score!! You rawk!!:D

I can't ever remember seeing a movie do that! But in order to stay true to the book, they pretty much had to. If you read them, you'd see. :)

Brandon is the blond guitar/bass player with the glowing eyes, who says "Bingo."

If you aren't into indie comics or Edgar Wright the director, then I can see why you haven't! I'm so glad they gave this a KICKASS trailer, now TONS of people will get into the series!

I have no idea what Scott Pilgrim is but that trailer looked AMAZING! I might just have to look into it before August!

And bonus points for having George Michael and Egg in the same movie!

WHAAAAAAAAAT
Somebody gave me the first volume of Scott Pilgrim for my birthday and I liked it but forgot about it. Now I am motivated to try and procure the next one.

:D

The movie adaptation looks good, too.

The funny thing is I saw your icon before I read any of the post and I was like "hey that looks like from that cute comic I read a couple months ago" and then BOOM this.

It looks so fun! ♥
