Here’s a gratifyingly geeky Friday afternoon distraction: the Scott Pilgrim interactive trailer. Rather than just show you footage from Edgar Wright’s adaptation of Scott Pilgrim vs The World, the clickable, playable trailer crams in more facts, featurettes and commentary than the average DVD extra. Hop through to get clicking. Warning: it auto-plays and you may be some time…
We love the classic Atari-style look of the Scott Pilgrim interactive trailer which fits perfectly with the film’s Street Fighter-meets-classic-Batman fight scenes. You can also compare drawings from Bryan O’Malley’s original Scott Pilgrim graphic novels with the film footage.
If a song featured in the Scott Pilgrim interactive trailer takes your fancy, the currently playing track is shown in the bottom of the window. At the end of clip, you’ll even get your score totted up to show how many hidden extras you’ve uncovered and you’ll also get Xbox 360-style achievements.
Our favourite fact? Scott Pilgrim’s band name, Sex Bob-Omb is a tribute to the Super Mario Bros baddie. Scott Pilgrim vs The World is out on August 25.
