Everybody who has seen Scott Pilgrim vs the World is saying that Chris Evans’ turn as Lucas Lee, a skateboarding action star evil ex of Ramona Flowers, is one of the highlights of the film. Now you have a chance to sample that scene, as Edgar Wright premiered a clip of it at the MTV Movie Awards. Best news of all: you don’t have to watch the MTV Movie Awards in order to see it! It’s embedded below.
This clip seems specifically designed for those who worried that Michael Cera wouldn’t be much of an action star. I think this clip really shuts that concern right up. By the way, doesn’t that musical cue sort of remind you of The Warriors? It’s not, but it’s certainly reminiscent!
