    Wow. That does look really freaking awesome. I really didn’t expect it to be, but there you go. Pleasant surprise.

    I know nothing about the comics, but this looks to be both insane and awesome. Must see!

    Great. It’s got that guy in it. You know. That guy from those movies. That guy who wears that same expression pictured above throughout the entirety of every movie he’s ever been in. What an awesome actor.

    Seven evil EXES. Not ex-boyfriends.

    Toronto is actually playing Toronto! That’s worth seeing.

      Exactly. They should film it in New York and *claim* that the Empire State Building is the CN Tower. Why should Toronto get the advantage of accurate depiction in film? Actually, since the US and Canadian dollars are near parity these days, is the practice of using Toronto as a cheap New York stand in still current?

    The girl seems to be afflicted with eternal sunshine of the spotless hair.

    For some reason, I thought of Scott Pilgrim as slightly less of a pushover loser than what Michael Cera is playing him as.

    Oh well, at least he’s not in Kick-ass.

    Cory – what Peter said, re “exes, not ex-boyfriends”! One of the exes is a girl! It’s a misunderstanding in the comic, too. … Um. Sorry for the spoiler, people reading the comments section. I promise it’s not all that important. (Also, it’s revealed in the trailer, so I don’t feel bad.)

    the best thing about this movie is that it got made, period. Even if Michael Cera is a bland and uninteresting actor who always plays bland and uninteresting characters in his movies. And it has Jason Schwartzman in it.

    I recommend to everyone: SUPPORT BRIAN LEE O’MALLEY! BUY THESE GRAPHIC NOVELS! YOU WILL NOT BE SORRY!

    If there’s a director who can pull this off, it’s Edgar Wright.

    I watched the trailer, however, and I don’t see Scott Pilgrim – I see Michael Cera.

    Also, I’m concerned they’re going to try to make it too much like a comic book, which doesn’t always work well in movie form, instead of making the Scott Pilgrim MOVIE and using the new medium to the max. Why are there KA-PLOWs? You don’t need KA-PLOWs in a movie, you have sound effects (the Streetfighter K.O. was awesome, though ;).

    Still, I’ll obviously go see it. They already own my soul. :s

    Saw it last night. Michael Cera plays Michael Cera.

    Yeah, the misunderstanding about one of the exes *being* a girl is a joke in the comics. I can understand O’Malley getting annoyed with people insisting on “evil EXES” when it kind of subverts his joke, which I assume was about heteronormativity to begin with.
