Blast from the Past: Edgar Wright is a Bastardo

Say what you will about the potential commercial viability of Scott Pilgrim vs. The World, there is no denying the fact that the movie looks like it will be, at least visually, director Edgar Wright’s finest hour.

From the video game-infused graphics to the kinetic camera work, each sneak preview of the film released thus far has worked up movie fans into a lather.

Don’t believe me? Check out the new TV spot for Scott Pilgrim below:

If there was any question on whether or not Wright had what it took to take a quirky comic book such as Scott Pilgrim and turn it into a visually exciting movie, we should have known better.

Back in 2005, Edgar Wright directed a music video for then girlfriend Charlotte Hatherley. The video for Hatherley’s song Bastardo even features some surprise guests including Simon Pegg, David Walliams, Julia Davis and Lucy Davis. Thanks goes out to Bleeding Cool‘s Rich Johnson for pointing out the video to those of us Americans previously unaware of its existence.
