Jason Statham Lookalikes Descend on Blitz Screening


While there may have only been one or two of them that actually looked anything like the Stath himself, a group of bald, stubbly, hardmen, all descended on London last week to attend the first ever “Jason Statham lookalike screening”; in honour of Jason’s latest movie release, Blitz.

Based on the Ken Bruen novel of the same name, Blitz places Statham (The Mechanic) in the role of no-nonsense detective Tom Brant (who’s not afraid to give lawbreakers a friendly slap in order to teach them a lesson), opposite a by-the-book bobby (played by The Bourne Ultimatum’s Paddy Considine), and places them on the trail of a serial killer (The Wire’s Aiden Gillen); who’s specifically targeting police officers.

Blitz is being released tomorrow (September 26th) on Blu-ray and DVD (from Lionsgate UK), and you can watch a video of the ‘Stath-a-like’ screening below, or watch the film’s official trailer here.
