James McAvoy (X-Men: First Class) and Mark Strong (Sherlock Holmes, John Carter) have teamed up to star in a UK action thriller called Welcome to the Punch. It was written and directed by Eran Creevy (Shifty), and the movie looks like it's going to be a very dark, gritty and cool action film. The story follows a notorious criminal who's is forced to return to London, which ends up giving a detective "one last chance to take down the man he's always been after."
The clip shows us a scene in which McAvoy's character is chasing after a group of bikers and ends up taking one down. As for the trailer, I really liked what I saw and I'm looking forward to checking this film out!
Former criminal Jacob Sternwood 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 one last chance to catch the man he has always been after. As they face off, they start to uncover a deeper conspiracy they both need to solve in order to survive.
Welcome to the Punch hits theaters in the UK on March 15th, 2013 and will be released in the US later in the year. The film also stars Andrea Riseborough, David Morrissey, Peter Mullan, Elyes Gabel, Jason Flemyng, Daniel Kaluuya, Daniel Mays and Johnny Harris.
