Scott Pilgrim Vs. The Blurry Standee
Official look at Edgar Wright's hero
Want to get your first crystal-clear look at the poster/standee for Edgar Wright’s Scott Pilgrim Vs The World? Well, you’ll have to wait a while – but if you want some blurry shots of it, then today’s your lucky days.
Those lovable scamps from Collider and Slashfilm happened upon a standee for the slacktion comedy while prowling around ShoWest in Las Vegas, and snapped off some shots.
So, what do we think? Well, we love the tagline – “An epic of epic epicness” – and the way the logo is formed from the energy-lines blazing out of Scott Pilgrim’s bass. It’s by no means a conventional poster – there’s little here to actually tell non-Pilgrims what the film’s about (namely, a slacker is forced to battle his new girlfriend’s seven evil exes, while grappling with the mysteries of love, life and something else beginning with ‘L’), and it’s interesting that Michael Cera’s face is being withheld, for the time being at least. Overall, though, the impression is that this is going to rock, and there’s nothing wrong with that.
Expect the campaign to start ramping up soon-ish, with the film’s August 6th date looming large.
