Regular readers of this blog will know how much I’m looking forward to the Scott Pilgrim movie – it was my top pick in my Top 5 Most Anticipated Movies of 2010.
So imagine my excitement on Thursday, when its director Edgar Wright (Shaun of the Dead, Hot Fuzz) tweeted a link to the teaser trailer. I’ve embedded said trailer here for you in all its high-def glory:
If you’re a fan of the comic, or were in any way impressed with the trailer, the following is also worth a look. It’s a frame-by-frame analysis that explains a few more of the plot details and characters in the kind of awesome detail I could only dream of doing:
Anyway, colour me excited. I’d strongly advise reading the comics before you see the film, since the series is one of the most enjoyable and engaging stories I’ve read in a while: full of humour, geeky references and even a few tears. I’ve included the first four pages of volume 1 below to give you a wee taster. If you like what you see, why not buy it at amazon now?
