Rate-a-Trailer: Michael Cera Fights Comic Book Villains


What begins as standard indie romance fare (a brightly-hued wig and walk through the snow reeks more than a little of Clementine Kruczynski) but therein lies the comedy, friends. You see, Michael Cera’s typical lovable loser gets drop-kicked by one of his new lady’s “seven evil ex-boyfriends.” Can the mumbling protagonist defeat the evil exes and save the day in Scott Pilgrim vs. The World? One good sign: the movie was produced by the folks behind Hot Fuzz and Sean of the Dead, funny films that wholly touted the underdogs. Watch and see; trailer (sort of) after the jump.

UPDATE: It looks as if the production company doesn’t like embedders like us. Try watching the trailer via Apple instead.
