Second “Scott Pilgrim” trailer (finally) hits the web One film eagerly anticipated by the geek … ahem, comic book community is Edgar Wright’s “Scott Pilgrim vs. The World.” It’s based on Bryan Lee O’Malley’s series of graphic novels about a Toronto slacker (played by Michael Cera) who must fight a slew of ex-boyfriends before he can date the elusive Ramona Flowers (Mary Elizabeth Winstead).

The books — which have a cult following — are amusing, if a little too hip for the room. But so far, promotional materials seems to suggest that Wright’s inventive direction might be hampered by Cera being … well, Cera. Winstead looks perfect as Flowers, though.

And Wright, eager to use the power of social media, hid the latest trailer from fans until the “Scott Pilgrim” page scored 100,000 fans. It took some time, but the site finally tallied it’s desired number of fans, and the lobger “Scott Pilgrim” trailer hit the web.

See it here or here.

“Scott Pilgrim vs. the World” opens in theaters on Aug. 13.
