Trailer Probe watches sci-fi-ish movie trailers to help you waste your computer time wisely. Geek explosion content is reasons you will like it, dork disengagement level is why you shan't.
Dork disengagement level:
Live action comic book adaptations are losing their shiny promise of superpower goodness. Producers must be hitting the bottom of the barrel if they had to go to this anime inspired, Canadian graphic novel.
Add to that the comic book from which this movie is taken about a slacker who plays bass in a rock band. Bassists are the accountants of the rock world.
For some reason, Michael Cera has to appear in this movie. -- 200,000 points.
Geek explosion content: “My baggage doesn't try and kill me every five minutes!”
It's Scott Pilgrim on the big screen! (Here's the the movie site.)
The trailer implies that the movie has all the cheesy goodness of the original comic (here's the RevolutionSF review), including the over the top manga inspired fight scenes. And trailers have never disappointed us before!
For bonus points, they kept Ramona's hair!
Did I mention it takes place in Canada? Quick, fellow Canucks. Round up the Olympic mascots and dancers. We got some more celebrating to do.
Geek explosion level: 750,000 geek parts per million, 850,000 if you are Canadian.
