First trailer for Brit action thriller Welcome to the Punch

After making his feature film debut with the 2009 urban thriller Shifty, British writer-director Eran Creevy has teamed up with executive producer Ridley Scott (Prometheus) for his second effort, assembling a cast that includes James McAvoy (X-Men: First Class), Mark Strong (Zero Dark Thirty) and Andrea Riseborough (Shadow Dancer) for the action thriller Welcome to the Punch, which has received its first trailer courtesy of Momentum Pictures.

Welcome to the Punch sees Mark Strong as ex-criminal Jacob Sternwood, who is forced to return to London when his son gets caught up in a heist gone wrong. This gives Sternwood’s nemesis, detective Max Lewinsky (McAvoy) one last chance to catch the man he’s always been after. Also featuring in the supporting cast are Peter Mullan (Tyrannosaur), David Morrissey (The Walking Dead), Johnny Harris (Snow White and the Huntsman), Elyes Gabel (Game of Thrones), Dannielle Brent (Bad Girls) and Daniel Mays (Mrs Biggs).
