Trailer Watch: Scott Pilgrim vs. the World vs. Jonah Hex

The studios are so in love with comic-book movies that they’re digging into material most of us have never read.

If all is right with the world, judging from the latest trailers, Edgar Wright’s romantic comic-book comedy Scott Pilgrim vs. the World, starring Michael Cera as a besotted lover who must fight off his new girlfriend’s seven ex-boyfriends, will be a hit when it opens August 13. Universal posted this trailer on Facebook (alas, no embed code). Universal needs to come out of its b.o. slump sometime.

Warners on the other hand gave their new trailer for the comic book western Jonah Hex, which played well at Comic-Con last year, to IGN (below). Despite folks who look forward to Josh Brolin, John Malkovich, Michael Fassbender and Megan Fox in the dystopian actioner, which opens June 18, I hear bad buzz on this troubled production, which had to do ten days of L.A. reshoots under rookie live-action director Jimmy Hayward (Horton Hears a Who!).
