After a series of sometimes unbelievably cheeky teases, the first teaser trailer for Edgar Wright‘s Scott Pilgrim vs. The World has been released onto the internet. This is clearly just a teaser, and there’s obviously going to be more work needed in getting mainstream audiences as hooked for this as the geek faithful, but it’s really looking exactly like this film has the stuff. Witness all of the seven evil exes, some incredible glimpses of just-what-we-wanted action and a few whisps of the actual drama, relationship-based stuff that’s going to house all of the sound and fury.
Watch the trailer after the break.

Plot Synopsis: Meet charming and jobless Scott Pilgrim (Michael Cera). A bass guitarist for garage band Sex Bob-omb, the 22-year-old has just met the girl of his dreams…literally. The only catch to winning Ramona Flowers (Mary Elizabeth Winstead)? Her seven evil exes are coming to kill him. Genre-smashing filmmaker Edgar Wright (Hot Fuzz, Shaun of the Dead) tells the amazing story of one romantic slacker’s quest to power up with love in Scott Pilgrim vs. the World.
Scott Pilgrim has never had a problem getting a girlfriend. It’s getting rid of them that proves difficult. From the girl who kicked his heart’s ass–and now is back in town–to the teenage distraction he’s trying to shake when Ramona rollerblades into his world, love hasn’t been easy. He soon discovers, however, his new crush has the most unusual baggage of all: a nefarious league of exes controls her love life and will do whatever it takes to eliminate him as a suitor.
As Scott gets closer to Ramona, he must face an increasingly vicious rogues’ gallery from her past–from infamous skateboarders to vegan rock stars and fearsomely identical twins. And if he hopes to win his true love, he must vanquish them all before it really is game over.
