Michael Cera, action hero? Believe it.
Sure, he’s still skinny and fragile-looking. But in “Scott Pilgrim vs. the World” — which has just released a teaser trailer ahead of its August debut — he’s an action hero nonetheless.
In the movie, based on the graphic novels by Byran Lee O’Malley and directed by Edgar Wright (“Hot Fuzz,” “Spaced”), Scott has to take on seven evil exes of his new love, Ramona (Mary Elizabeth Winstead). The cast also includes “Twilight” and “Up in the Air” star Anna Kendrick, newly minted “Captain America” Chris Evans, Brandon Routh (“Chuck,” “Superman Returns”), Mae Whitman (“Parenthood”) and Jason Schwartzman.
It will be, as the movie’s tagline promises, “an epic of epic epicness.” Watch for yourself — pretty good, right?
