The hype train for Edgar Wright's latest has been running full speed ahead for months now, but here's a new batch of goodies to get you in the mood for the film's debut (and if you're curious, be sure to check out our own Todd Gilchrist's review from the Comic-Con screening).
Up until now, most of the promotional materials for the movie have focused on lovable slacker Scott Pilgrim (Michael Cera) and his blossoming romance with the girl of his dreams, Ramona Flowers (Mary Elizabeth Winstead). What we haven't seen nearly enough of are the seven evil exes Scott must defeat to win the heart of his one true love. That changes a bit today.
The production has released several fictitious posters based on evil ex #2, Lucas Lee (Chris Evans), and his awful movies – films he appeared in after his break-up with Ramona. Lee was a skateboarder who became a cheesy film star, and these posters prove it. With titles like The Game is Over 2 and You Just Don't Exist, it's clear they're going for laughs, but what really sells it is Evans' expression. The guy can really arch an eyebrow.
To be honest, I'd probably go see some of these films if they actually existed. I mean, can Action Doctor really be worse than something like Steven Seagal's Out for a Kill -- a film where the portly martial artist plays an archaeologist? Probably not. What do you think of these posters? And more importantly, would you go see any of these flicks if they were real? Check them out in the gallery below.
