SCOTT PILGRIM VS. THE WORLD Trailer Remix; plus a Building-Sized Ad for the Film

     July 14, 2010

A remixed Scott Pilgrim vs. The World trailer has landed online.  It’s the first in a series of remixed trailers by DJ Osymyso.  Osymyso previously created “Spaced Jam” for the DVD release of Edgar Wright’s Spaced.  Both this trailer and “Spaced Jam” involve sampling lines of dialogue and turning them into fresh beats.  And the beat of this new Scott Pilgrim trailer (entitled “Prepare”) is that the League of Evil Exes wants to beat the life out of Scott Pilgrim (Michael Cera).  I look forward to checking out future installments of this series.  I also look forward to the release of the final book in the series, Scott Pilgrim Finest Hour, on July 20th, and to the film’s panel at Comic-Con on July 22nd, and the video game on August 10th, and when the movie hits theaters on August 13th.

Hit the jump to check out the new trailer as well as a photo of the Hilton Bayfront Hotel in San Diego getting Pilgrim-ized.

Wright tweeted this photo earlier today:

So I believe that puts to rest the question of “How big of a presence will Scott Pilgrim vs. The World at Comic-Con?”

Here’s the official synopsis for Scott Pilgrim vs. The World:

Meet charming and jobless Scott Pilgrim (Michael Cera).  A bass guitarist for totally average garage band Sex Bob-omb, the 22-year-old has just met the girl of his dreams…literally.  The only catch to winning Ramona Flowers (Mary Elizabeth Winstead)?  Her seven evil exes are coming to kill him.  Genre-smashing filmmaker Edgar Wright (Hot Fuzz, Shaun of the Dead) tells the amazing story of one romantic slacker’s quest to power up with love in Scott Pilgrim vs. the World.

Scott Pilgrim has never had a problem getting a girlfriend.  It’s getting rid of them that proves difficult.  From the girl who kicked his heart’s ass-and now is back in town-to the teenage distraction he’s trying to shake when Ramona rollerblades into his world, love hasn’t been easy.  He soon discovers, however, his new crush has the most unusual baggage of all: a nefarious league of exes controls her love life and will do whatever it takes to eliminate him as a suitor.

As Scott gets closer to Ramona, he must face an increasingly vicious rogues’ gallery from her past-from infamous skateboarders to vegan rock stars and fearsomely identical twins.  And if he hopes to win his true love, he must vanquish them all before it really is game over.
