The Matrix mashup trailer that could have saved Scott Pilgrim

To say that Scott Pilgrim vs. The World was a box-office disaster would be an understatement. It opened in fifth place and will likely never make back its $60 million budget. But everything would have gone a lot differently if only its trailer had looked a bit more like The Matrix!

AEmovieguy mashed together audio from the Scott Pilgrim trailer with video from the various films of the Matrix trilogy to come up with something that COULD have gotten more people to see Scott Pilgrim.

If nothing else, it's the only time that ridiculous Matrix rave scene hasn't made us squirm.

Check it out below.
