Find the Toronto icons in the Scott Pilgrim trailer
Although it admittedly seems a bit odd to write a post directing one’s attention to what is essentially a commercial, we think it’s worth noting that the trailer for the Toronto-rific feature Scott Pilgrim vs. The World was released today. The movie, based on Brian Lee O’Malley’s series of Toronto-centred comic books, was filmed here last year and stars Michael Cera, Brampton’s golden boy. Cera plays Scott, who’s on a mission to defeat his dream girl’s seven evil ex-boyfriends. But, as the trailer shows, the film also stars some other Toronto icons: the TTC, Sneaky Dee’s, Honest Ed’s and Lee’s Palace.
First Chloe and now this. If we aren’t careful, Toronto is going to refuse to play any parts other than itself—which is a shame, because it makes a beautiful Detroit.
