Edgar Wright Talks Scott Pilgrim Teaser Trailer
A frame-by-frame analysis of the teaser trailer by the movie's director
So, the Scott Pilgrim Vs The World trailer debuted on Thursday night and, lo, it was uniformly well-received. Unsurprising, really, for it's a scintillating 85-second burst of electric shock energy that has put Edgar Wright's comic book adaptation firmly on the must-see map. So, naturally, we grabbed the Hot Fuzz and Shaun Of The Dead director to talk us through the highlights of the year's best teaser.

Edgar Wright Talks Scott Pilgrim Teaser Trailer
Scott Pilgrim Teaser Trailer

Edgar Wright: I guess I was very pleased that it went beyond just the fans of the books and my stuff. It seemed to very quickly, in the space of hours, get around the world. I have no real idea who Justin Bieber is, but I'm told it's a big deal we beat him in the trending topics on Twitter!

The trailer - which can also be seen attached to prints of Kick-Ass when it opens on Wednesday - is a fast and furious ride through some of the key moments of the film, which stars Michael Cera as a slacker who must battle seven of his new girlfriend's evil exes in order to win her heart, save the day etc. etc. But Wright is at pains to point out that it's just a teaser.

Wright: There's a lot of eye-candy crammed into 85 seconds, but it doesn't cover how crazy it gets. I wanted the whole film to be like a ride in one sense, and a bit of a trip in a way. It's like an episode of Spaced where the dream sequence starts and never stops.

The guy just annoys the hell out of me. And it looks like he will be doing the same old, same old schtick in here too. I want to love this movie so much. everything else seems perfect. But Cera.....meh. Read More

I think the Killer Soundwave could be the result of Crash and the Boys' final song from Book One. Read More

Wright: She's amazing. She's got incredible comic timing. I remember Bill Pope watching the dailies and saying, 'man, that woman can talk fast!' She plays Stacey Pilgrim, who's based on Bryan Lee O'Malley's sister, Stacey. They got to meet on the set. And the line is partly based on a line from the books - it's got the set-up from the books, but the punchline is from the script. I suppose it's got nothing to do with the fact he's sticking his cock up her then. Read More

I feel more excited after reading this feature than watching the trailer. The trailer is sort of all over the place where as with Edgar Wright's descriptions of various aspects of the trailer you get a better understanding. Hopefully we get a better theatrical trailer soon. Read More

I think pic 15 is of Kyle and Ken Katayanagi....i beleieve it was mentioned in one of the Scott Pilgrim blogs that they we're DJ's or something. They may still send a robot against Scott but maybe this is how they enter the movie rather than just walking in at the party! Read More

Edgar Wright is yet to put a foot wrong and with such a good cast this is going to be awesome. He seems to know what he is doing and is happy with the work that's going into it. Can't wait. Read More
