First Badass UK Trailer for 'Welcome to the Punch' with Mark Strong
"Max is an inch away from piecing all this together." Hell yes, it's time to take a look at a James McAvoy vs Mark Strong showdown! This film is Welcome to the Punch and stars both McAvoy and Strong. McAvoy plays Max, a detective who gets one last shot to take down "the man he's always been after" when Sternwood, Strong, returns to London. I wasn't sure what to expect at first, as it's from an up-and-coming director named Eran Creevy, but damn does it look like a badass sleek action-thriller. A little bit of Bourne, a bit of Smokin' Aces even, and some dark blue London cinematography top it all off. Check this out below.
Here's the first official UK trailer for Eran Creevy's Welcome to the Punch, originally from The Sun:
Eran Creevy's Welcome to the Punch tells the story of a former criminal, Jacob Sternwood (Mark Strong) who is forced to return to London from his Icelandic hideaway when his son is involved in a heist gone wrong. This gives detective Max Lewinsky (James McAvoy) one last chance to catch the man he has always been after. As they face off, they uncover a deeper conspiracy they both need to solve in order to survive.
Welcome to the Punch is written & directed by BAFTA nominated English filmmaker Eran Creevy, of a 2008 film called Shifty previously. This was produced by Worldview Entertainment, Between The Eyes, Scott Free and Automatik Entertainment, and will arrive in US theaters on March 15th, 2013 next year. Look good?
