Lee Lucas Film: The Background Posters from Scott Pilgrim

I love little pieces of movie marketing magic – particularly those which offer little easter eggs of films coming out. It’s nice to have some hype material which manages to avoid spoiling the film, but also adds a little texture to the fictional universe. And so, from the minds behind Scott Pilgrim vs. The World, we have the fictional filmography of Lee Lucas, the second “evil ex” that Scoot must vanquish. Played brilliantly by Chris Evans in a performance that would make William Shatner blush (really, like Brandon Routh, he’s clearly having the time of his life), he’s a “sell out” – a skater turned movie star. And here are some of his hits – as presented by the guys at Empire. My favourite, and a movie which needs to be made now? Doctor Action.

“The good news is… you’re going to live.

The bad news is he is going to kill you.”

Along the way there’s room for spoofs of your typical Oscar-fare of Let’s Hope There’s a Heaven (“kiss me, I’m dying”) and even a more pointed spoof of the godawful Al Pacino film 88 Minutes with You Can’t Exist.

  1. I can only imagine what an awful film “Doctor Action” would be.

    • I do think it would make an amazing “so bad it’s good” film. Almost a spoof.

      Okay. I just love the tagline.
