WATCH: The Trailer For Goon 2 Is A Knockout
With the Oscars going down soon, the topic of film is always a timely subject. Hockey films don't hit the silver screen as often as their circular ball counterparts, but when they're on, they're non-stop awesomeness.
One such film was Goon, a 2011 black comedy starring Seann William Scott in the titular role, co-starring Jay Baruchel (She's Out of My League) and Liev Schreiber (Ray Donovan). Playing off the hockey trope of hockey enforcers, Scott starred as Doug "The Thug" Glatt, a not-so-skilled hockey player that finds a role on a minor league hockey team as a fighter.
The new trailer, posted above, features Scott reprising his skater role, seeking the mentorship of his former adversary Ross "The Boss" Rhea when the former loses his fighting skills. Schreiber, Alison Pill, Mark-Andre Grondin, Kim Coates, Eugene Levy and Baruchel all reprise their roles, with Baruchel also handling directing duties. Newcomers to the cast include Wyatt Russell (22 Jump Street), Elisha Cuthbert (24), and TJ Miller (Deadpool).
While it's very difficult for comedy sequels to live up to the success of their predecessors, I must say I'm enjoying how Last of the Enforcers is stacking up. The vibe between Scott and Schreiber appears to be stronger than ever, and Russell, son of screen legend Kurt, appears to be a solid antagonist.
The film is slated to be released for a 2017 release in the US, March 17 in Canada.
