Alright nerds, as if we haven’t gushed enough praise on Bryan Lee O’Malley’s truly original series of books, our patience is finally rewarded with the upcoming release of Scott Pilgrim vs. The World (link to the movie’s website) coming out on August 13!
I, for one, am incredibly excited to see what exactly masterful film director Edgar Wright (check him out on the Internet Movie Database) has decided to present to the thousands of rabid Scott Pilgrim fans all over the world. The high-spirited trailer alone proves that Wright plans to stay as loyal to O’Malley’s vision as the limits of film will allow.
In the meantime, however, spend your days catching up on Scott, Ramona, Kim, Stephen, Knives, Young Neil and the rest as you dive head-first back into the six volume set in anticipation of what is surely to be a great time at the movies!
