Trailer: Goon


This here’s the international trailer for the new hockey comedy (redundant?), Goon (no relation to the comic). The movie stars Sean William Scott as a down-on-his-luck bouncer who loves to fight people… so, naturally, he signs up to play hockey, because that’s all that sport is really about. It’s like race car driving; people only go to see a crash. Joining Scott are Jay Baruchel, Liev Schreiber and Alison Pill. Jay Baruchel, interestingly enough, is also a scribe on this and isn’t just playing his usual side comedy role. Baruchel is joined by Evan Goldberg, who also wrote Pineapple Express and Superbad. Michael Dowse directs, coming off of Take Me Home Tonight success (in my heart, anyway).

“Punch destiny in the face” (the tagline for the movie) soonish.
