The Best Comic Movie This Summer
June 17, 2010

I watched the new Scott Pilgrim trailer just now:

And it got me very excited about the movie, due out August 13. It looks exciting and funny and visual (so worth seeing in a theater) and faithful to the source, while still playing up the strengths of the movie medium. I can’t wait!

I have no idea what the general moviegoing public is going to make of this odd thing, but I am ridiculously excited. :D

Well, how did Nick & Norah’s Infinite Playlist do? (Not very good, 31 million, but against a 9 million budget, so profitable.) That’s pretty similar, although without the comedic/videogame touches. Which I think widen the audience, although maybe some could be put off by perceived silliness. Playing up “by the director of Hot Fuzz/Shaun of the Dead” is probably a good idea to attract those genre-mashup audiences, too.
