Michael Cera gets in on the superheroics this summer with “Scott Pilgrim vs. the World,” about a bass player who must defeat seven evil ex-boyfriends in order to win the hand of the girl of his dreams. Universal Studios just released the first trailer for the Aug. 13 release.

Shaun of the Dead” director Edgar Wright adapted this film from Bryan Lee O’Malley’s popular comics. Expect lots of music, action and -- check it out! -- flaming swords.
