One of the best things about Edgar Wright’s forthcoming comic book adaptation Scott Pilgrim vs. The World is undoubtedly Chris Evans, who cameos as fictional action star Lucas Lee. What’s Lee like? Imagine a cross between Vin Diesel and a more smug, well, Vin Diesel.
The folks over at Britain’s Empire magazine have gotten their hands on a clutch of fake Lucas Lee movie posters that the Pilgrim team mocked up and they’re well worth a look. I’m particularly struck by how much the artwork for the Lee-starring Thrilled To Be Here (tag-line: “Spencer Jay is awesome. You’re welcome”) looks like the poster for the fourth entry in a certain Diesel-starring franchise. I’m also struck by how much I wouldn’t want to see Let’s Hope There’s A Heaven (tag-line: “Kiss Me. I’m Dying”).
Anyway, check out the posters and tell us what you think. Which would you go and see if they were real?
