That’s exactly the case in “I Love You Phillip Morris,” a Jim Carrey–Ewan McGregor comedy that — believe it or not — is based on the real-life story of conman Steven Russell (Carrey) who met his soul-mate Phillip Morris (McGregor) while in jail and, when Morris was released, escaped from the slammer on four separate occasions in order to be with him. Sweet, huh? Check out the poster after the jump.
Though the buzz on this flick is pretty good — and we’re digging the humorous poster — it’s been inexplicably sitting on the shelf for a while now. Thankfully, “I Love You Phillip Morris” will bust out in a big way this holiday season, opening in select theaters on December 3 and then expanding throughout the month.
What do you think of the poster? And are you psyched for the movie? Tell us in the comments!
