On August 13th, the movie adaptation of the graphic novel Scott Pilgrim vs. The World, starring Michael Cera, will be released and fans will either rejoice or cringe. The trailer was just unveiled recently and you can check it out on Apple’s trailer website.

If you don’t know anything about Scott Pilgrim, it’s basically a comic book story about this guy who meets the girl of his dreams, then learns that she’s watched by her seven supervillain-like exes who want to control her love life. Thus, Scott Pilgrim has to fight these seven crazies in epic superhero fashion in order to win the love of his life. The trailer looks promising, even with one trick pony Michael Cera as the not-quite-as-awkward-as-usual lead.

As if that weren’t enough good news, there’s going to be a video game based on the movie. Just for good measure, chip tune all-stars Anamanaguchi are doing the soundtrack for said video game, as announced recently at PAX East during their fantastic on-stage set. I don’t care if the game sucks; Anamanaguchi are wicked entertaining and I can’t wait to hear what they concoct for this game’s soundtrack.
