The trailer for the most recent Michael Cera vehicle — Scott Pilgrim vs. The World – has hit the Internets hard, and apparently people are excited.

Earlier today, MTV reported that director Edgar Wright (of Hot Fuzz and Shaun of the Dead fame) heralded the coming of the trailer with three cryptic tweets reading: “Wait. What’s that? (looks into distance),” “(squints),” “Ah. I guess it was just a mirage or something.”

Soon after, the teaser hit the iTunes trailer site.

The film is based on a popular series of independent comic books by Bryan Lee O’Malley about a slacker musician named Scott Pilgrim (Cera) who, in order to score his dream girl — one Ramona Flowers — must do battle with her seven evil exes.

The film, which premieres on August 13, also stars Jason Schwartzman, Kieran Culkin, Chris Evans and Mary Elizabeth Winstead as Flowers. As of right now, we don’t know how many views the trailer has gotten — there’s a few versions uploaded to YouTube — but we’re curious to hear your thoughts on the upcoming film.

Personally, I’m happy to see Cera branching out — I mean, he’s never played a slightly awkward yet loveable musician on an almost hopeless quest for an impossible love with a quirky girl before.

Oh, Michael, you’ll always be a glam band darling to me.
