The trailer for Scott Pilgrim Vs. The World is finally here, and it’s everything fans of Bryan Lee O’Malley’s much-loved comic could have hoped for. It’s clear just from these couple of minutes of footage that Edgar Wright completely gets the source material (as if there was any doubt), and the film is really looking like a live action comic. How we’ve missed you, visual sound effects!

I can’t wait to see how unaware audiences react to this. It’s perfect- it suckers you into thinking you’re getting another light romantic comedy with Michael Cera before pulling out the video game battles. Excellent use of Street Fighter II clip, as well- would it be too much to hope for a Final Fantasy battle theme?
