Now that Inception is upon us, nothing can stop the world of fandom from turning toward the summer’s final treat, Edgar Wright’s Scott Pilgrim vs. the World. Based on the wildly popular Scott Pilgrim comic series by Brian O’Malley, this one looks to be the energetic kick that we’ll need just before the fall movie season starts up. Universal today released a new featurette for the film focused on explaining just what makes up the world of Scott Pilgrim (played by Michael Cera) and why he must endure so much torture in order to win the heart of the girl he loves, Ramona Flowers (Mary Elizabeth Winstead).
After the jump you will find the film’s official synopsis, the new featurette and assured bliss.
Meet charming and jobless Scott Pilgrim (Michael Cera). A bass guitarist for 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 fearsome identical twins. And if he hopes to win his true love, he must vanquish them all before it really is game over.
