Harry Potter x Scott PilgrimAugust 4th, 2014
The original trailer for Edgar Wright’s Scott Pilgrim vs. the World is a classic, capturing the anime-inspired style and whip-smart editing prowess of Mr. Wright in a 2-minute reel. In this clip from YouTuber The Unusual Suspect, he replicates the style of the Scott Pilgrim trailer, but with the characters from the Harry Potter universe instead.
It’s pretty spot-on, complete with graphic novel panel overlays, video game sound effects, and music by the Ting Tings, Be Your Own Pet, LCD Soundsystem and The Prodigy among others. Even the concert and fight sequences are there. For comparison’s sake, here’s the original trailer:
You can also watch them side by side on YouTube Doubler. The timing isn’t 100% perfect, but they play very well together.
Great job, Unusual Suspect!
