Here's what he had to say:
This is a recreation of the Scott Pilgrim vs. the World Theatrical Trailer. I used images from the Scott Pilgrim graphic novel and matched the trailer as best I could. Also you may see things here that differ from the trailer and that is because there are things in the movie that arent in the graphic novel and vice versa. I do not own any of the video, audio or images, Universal and the creator Bryan Lee O'Malley do.
[After the break, the graphic-novel trailer in all its hipster-cool, black-and-white glory.]
So what did you think of the graphic novel trailer? Impressed? Unimpressed? Unexcited? If you chose "unimpressed" or "unexcited" what, if anything, would you have done differently?
