If Michael Cera and Chris Evans got into a fight who would win? That’s the question that’s posed in the first clip from Edgar Wright’s Scott Pilgrim vs. The World. The film features Cera as the title character and Evans as one of his many arch rivals, a famous action star named Lucas Lee. Even though the fight in this scene is awesome, the best part might be Wright’s hilarious introduction of the clip…
You’ve gotta give props to Cera in this clip because it looks like he’s doing all his stunts. The kicks, the punches, the Matrix-like lean back, it all looks like him! Also, Evans fits the role of a pompous action star like a glove. The dialogue in this scene is so cliched it’s hilarious (“I’m nothing without my stunt team.”) and Kieran Culkin’s useless presence is so misplaced that you can’t help but laugh.
The story of Scott Pilgrim is one filled with teenage angst and puppy love, which is a dangerous combination. Pilgrim has never had a problem getting a girlfriend. It’s getting rid of them that proves difficult. The one that he really yearns for is Ramona, and in order to win her love he’ll have to fight all her psycho ex-boyfriends.
