Let’s pray this doesn’t end up being a case of style over substance, as the trailer for Welcome To The Punch looks absolutely gorgeous, but we’ll have to wait and see if the plot can live up to looks.
The film is an action thriller about a London detective (James McAvoy) and an ex-criminal (Mark Strong) who’s forced to return from his Icelandic hideaway. They become unlikely allies in a bid to expose a high-level conspiracy. The cast also includes Andrea Riseborough and Peter Mullan.
The second movie from BAFTA nominated Eran Creevy, Welcome To The Punch is due out March 15th (it’s original September 7th 2012 debut was delayed). And as for if it will be style over substant, the script placed third on the 2010 Brit List (the UK version of the Black List of the best unproduced screenplays), so that’s a good indication this will be worth watching.
