Second Official Poster for Edgar Wright's Scott Pilgrim Arrives
An epic of epic epicness. Where is that tagline this time? Empire has debuted the second brand new poster for Edgar Wright's highly anticipated upcoming movie Scott Pilgrim vs. the World, based on Bryan Lee O'Malley's awesome comic book series. Unfortunately this poster is not at all as impressive or as creative as the original teaser poster that was first unveiled back in March. The tagline is not as awesome, their pose is pretty dull, plus its got a bunch of faces/heads and that's it; this is not at all the kind of poster I was hoping we'd see. Maybe there will be another few posters released before the movie comes out? I certainly hope so!
Scott Pilgrim vs. the World is directed by brilliant British filmmaker Edgar Wright, of cult classics Shaun of the Dead and Hot Fuzz previously. The screenplay was co-written by Edgar Wright and actor Michael Bacall and is based on the Oni Press comic book series of the same name. The story follows a Canadian boy named Scott Pilgrim (Michael Cera) who must defeat his new girlfriend's (Mary Elizabeth Winstead) seven evil exes in order to win her heart. We've been following this since it was announced and as a fan of the comic books, I'm very excited. Universal is bringing Scott Pilgrim vs. the World to theaters everywhere on August 13th!
