With just under a month before “Scott Pilgrim Vs. The World” kicks its way into movie theaters, a new clip shows a decidedly different side of the film than we’ve seen to date.
Comic Alliance debuted the new footage (but doesn’t let you embed the video) which focuses on the love triangle between Scott (Michael Cera), Ramona Flowers (Mary Elizabeth Winstead) and the aptly named, Knives Chau (Ellen Wong).
While the clip doesn’t offer much in the way of new footage, it does depict Scott’s attempt to decide between Ramona and Knives before admitting that he sees a future with Ramona “with jetpacks.”
In the original “Scott Pilgrim” comics by Bryan Lee O’Malley, Scott dated Knives shortly before meeting Ramona. He ends up cheating on her with Ramona, which leads to a full blown feud between the two girls early in the series. Knives even begins stalking Scott at one point.
Back in June, six posters depicting Ramona’s evil ex-boyfriends (and one ex-girlfriend) debuted, featuring Satya Bhabha as Matthew Patel, Chris Evans as Lucas Lee, Brandon Routh as Todd Ingram, Mae Whitman as Roxy Richter, Shota & Keita Saito as Kyle & Ken Katayanagi and Jason Schwartzman as Gideon Graves.
Earlier this month, the Scott Pilgrim Vs. Comic-Con promotion was announced, which will feature several of the film’s stars (including Cera, Winstead and Anna Kendrick) along with director Edgar Wright making personalized T-shirts for fans in the vicinity of next week’s San Diego Comic-Con International.
“Scott Pilgrim Vs. The World” hits theaters on August 13.
