Dumb poster is a spoof on Lucy

Jim Carrey features on the new posters for Dumb And Dumber To

Jim Carrey and Jeff Daniels, the stars of Dumb And Dumber To, have spoofed Luc Besson's film Lucy with their latest promotional posters.

The two actors' portraits feature on the new artwork for the upcoming sequel, which pokes fun at their characters Harry Dunne and Lloyd Christmas.

The posters for Lucy, which stars Scarlett Johansson as a young woman who acquires exceptional mental powers, feature the tagline: "The average person uses 10% of their brain capacity. Imagine what she could do with 100%."

But the artwork for Dumb And Dumber To, which is also backed by Universal Pictures, has amended the tagline for dim-witted best friends Harry and Lloyd, who represent the opposite end of the intelligence spectrum.

"The average person uses 10% of their brain capacity. Imagine what he could do with 1%," the line reads.

Both Jim and Jeff shared the images of the posters on Twitter.

Directed by Bobby and Peter Farrelly, Dumb And Dumber To - the long-awaited sequel to 1994's Dumb And Dumber - follows the best buddies as they go in search of Harry's long-lost daughter.
