All you really need to know about movie Scott Pilgrim Vs. The World is that it's directed by the guy behind Shaun of the Dead and Hot Fuzz. Also, it has like a bagillion game references crammed into its trailer.
It makes sense that there are plenty of gaming, and even more comic, references in the Edgar Wright-directed film. The movie is an adaptation of Scott Pilgrim's video-game referencing Precious Little Life. The movie will not, comic artist Bryan Lee O'Malley confirmed, contain any bits from the latest volume in the comic series.
The film, which wrapped last year, is set for an Aug. 13 release along with a, wait for it, video game that is being developed by Ubisoft.
They should have just gone to Capcom and had it made into a pure fighter.
