Controversial 'Pulp' Scene Blasts Star Wars

There’s a new indie movie coming called Pulp, a British comedy set in the geek world of comic books and conventions. Its trailer contains a scene in which an unlikeable cop named Tyler Jake rips Star Wars apart, and as you might suspect, it’s quite the button-pusher.

The red band trailer for Pulp, embedded above, is extremely NSFW. It features police officer Jake facing off against comic book artist Rick Bean, in a verbal showdown about the plot of the original Star Wars. It’s loaded with F-bombs, but it’s patently hysterical. And it ends with only one man standing.

Needless to say, the video is not for younger viewers — or the easily offended.

Pulp is an irreverent-but-loving homage to geekdom. The plot revolves around down-on-his-luck comic book publisher Tony Leary who puts all of his eggs in one basket to launch a new superhero title called (and this should give you a taste of the film’s saucy brand of humor) The Sodomizer. Things get complicated when Tony, along with his two best friends, is recruited by the police to help identify another comic book publisher that’s laundering money for a criminal organization.

The film is currently looking for a distributor for a desired release sometime in 2012.
