Writer-director Edgar Wright's (Hot Fuzz) latest movie, Scott Pilgrim vs. The World, opens tomorrow and Universal is making one final marketing push by unleashing a plethora of new promotional videos. Based on the popular Scott Pilgrim indie comic book by Bryan Lee O'Malley, the movie follows slacker musician Scott Pilgrim (Michael Cera) as he tries to win the affections of the girl of his dreams, Ramona Flowers (Mary Elizabeth Winstead) by battling his way through her seven "evil" exes in video-game inspired combat.
