‘Welcome to the Punch’ Trailer: If You Have a Stylish Action Flick, James McAvoy Will Star In It

Welcome to the Punch Trailer

Between Wanted, Danny Boyle’s upcoming Trance, and Eran Creevy’Welcome to the PunchJames McAvoy is making a nice little cottage industry for himself out of starring in stylish, slick actioners. In the upcoming Punch, McAvoy stars as a straightlaced detective who has spent much of his career chasing after Mark Strong‘s Jacob Sternwood who has, in turn, spent most of his career being a  criminal. Sternwood is a bit of a changed man, though, and he’s about to really switch things up when he teams up with McAvoy’s Max Lewinsky to help uncover a conspiracy that has something to do with that bullet in Sternwood’s son’s stomach and all that weird writing on his hand.

It’s all very glossy and shiny and slick and pretty to look at it and more than a touch confusing. Try to figure out what’s going on amongst all the pretty colors in the newest trailer for Welcome to the Punch, after the break.

Welcome to the Punch opened in the UK last Friday and will hit American screens on March 27.
