Michael Cera was joined by co-stars and celeb friends at Grauman’s Chinese Theatre in Hollywood, CA last night for the Hollywood premiere of his new film Scott Pilgrim vs. The World. Adapted from the graphic novel series Scott Pilgrim by Bryan Lee O’Malley, this new film tells the tale of a 23-year old Canadian slacker who falls in love with a girl and must battle her 7 evil ex-boyfriends in order to win her heart. To be honest, I only had a passing awareness of the graphic novel series but I absolutely fell in love with the movie when I saw the first movie trailer earlier this year. Here are a few photos from the red carpet arrivals at last night’s movie premiere event:
I’ll be the first to admit that Michael Cera tends to bug the HELL out of me … but I was won over so entirely by the movie trailer that I am willing to overlook that fact and give the movie a chance. The film utilizes elements from comic books and video games to heighten the experience of the movie … it just looks really damn cool. I’ve since checked out some of the Scott Pilgrim graphic novels and I’ve determined I like them very much. The animation in the books is very simple but effective … I really like the cuteness of the books. I’m hoping the film will be as fun as the trailer makes it seem. After the jump, check out the video trailer for Scott Pilgrim vs. The World to see what I’m talking about …
LOL … it’s cute, right? I am really anxious to see this movie. Are any of y’all Scott Pilgrim fans? Should I be reading the graphic novels or what? Irregardless, I’m a bit worried that this film might make me like Michael Cera a bit more … and that’s a scary prospect. Still, I think I’ll risk it. Scott Pilgrim vs. The World opens on August 13.
