Chris Evans in Puncture – trailer & poster

I can’t review Puncture because it is embargoed until September 19, so I can’t really say how much I liked the movie and how good Chris Evans is in it and how important the subject matter is so I’ll just say check out the cool trailer of one of my favorite films of the year.

    Well add Chris to the best actor candidates. Further is Melissa McCarthy completely out of the picture for best supporting actress. In my opinion, the fun she brings to the table is reminiscent to Kathy Bates performance in Misery = Oscar?

    Would love to see this do well – if it’s well reviewed and has enough staying power, Evans could be an outside candidate for some major awards attention. And it has one of my favourite character actresses, Kate Burton, it what looks to be a cracker of a role. You’ve whet my appetite, Sasha!

    well i’m glad you are saying positive things about it– this is the first i’ve seen the trailer, and on that alone i would have said “this looks like a bad cliché full of contrived dialogue”

    Iiiit’s baaaaack.

    Looks like CONVICTION’s rebellious younger brother. What the hell is going on in that first scene? Are those friends of his? ‘Cos I wouldn’t sit there with a post-it on my chest, listening politely while some douche strutted around (with suspenders and no shirt) displaying his legal acumen. I’d say “eff this” and stand up and go bowling or something.

    The trailer is awful and generic looking. I hope the movie is better.

    Someone please post a synopsis for this movie before I become so confused and agitated by this trailer that I break something in my own house.

    Ok, just read a synopsis. Basically this movie is like if Half Nelson was a John Grisham movie. Sure, I’ll see this.

    From IMDb:

    A David and Goliath law drama about a drug-addicted lawyer who takes on a health supply corporation while battling his own personal demons.

    So, Aaron Brockovich? Michael Clayton with track marks? It’s about time someone stood up to big corporations in a movie!

    This trailer was so full of cliches it almost felt like a parody or spoof of what an Oscar movie is supposed to look like.

    Sasha, this trailer is so TV-movie-ish. Are you sure it’s that good? No Oscar nominations, for sure.

    Then again, Rise of the Planet of the Apes had a bad trailer, too… and look what happened?

    Every time I hear the name Chris I legitimately have to spend a minute thinking who is Evans and who is Pine. I didn’t love Evans as much as many in CAPTAIN AMERICA but I’m willing to believe he’s got the talent, so hopefully this ends up well.

    All I know is that Evans was awesome in Not Another Teen Movie and in his brief cameo in Scott Pilgrim. I don’t think he’s a great actor, but I do think he’s a good comedic actor.

    If it gets good reviews, and it seems like Evans is actually trying, then I’ll see it.

    @McAnderson

    What’s wrong with one-liners? Auntie Mame is mostly one-liners and that didn’t deter it from being a fantastic fllm. It’s how the lines are used and delivered.

    Tero, I can’t say if it’s that good or not because obviously different strokes for different folks. What the movie has to say is important – really really important. I also thought it was good. I can’t really review it until the embargo lifts and also it got one bad review by The Playlist so you know, as with all things, take it with a grain of salt.

    Well, I rewatched the trailer for Rise of the Planet of the Apes after seeing the movie. The trailer still sucked. Funny how they tried to sell a completely different movie there.
