Scott Pilgrim Movie Includes Zelda Tunes, Beck As Sex Bob-omb

Mario and Zelda creator Shigeru Miyamoto has apparently given the stamp of approval to the movie adaptation Scott Pilgrim Vs The World, based on the heavily video game-influenced comic of the same name.

According to a new interview with Scott Pilgirm director Edgar Wright conducted by star Michael Cera in the new issue of Wired magazine, via GoNintendo, Miyamoto had to screen the action flick in order for some Nintendo music to be used in the film. Wright says he lobbied Nintendo to get the rights to use music from The Legend of Zelda in the movie during a dream sequence.

Wright says he wrote to Nintendo that the Zelda tune in question was "like nursery rhymes to a generation."

In other Scott Pilgrim Vs The World music news via Pitchfork, the movie's official soundtrack will feature both Beck and Broken Social Scene playing the music for fictional video game-inspired bands Sex Bob-omb and Crash and the Boys, respectively.

Surely there must be something wrong with this movie, right? Like it causes shoulder cancer or something? It all sounds too good...
