‘Goon’ Trailer Isn’t Here to Play Hockey, It’s Here to Fight

By  · Published on November 7th, 2011

The fine folks over at JoBlo have the world’s first full trailer for Goon – the fighting movie that has some hockey in it. It stars Seann William Scott as a major fanatic who busts the face of a visiting fan during a game and is invited to try out for a local team. Of course, they don’t want him to play. They want him to bleed.

Co-written by Jay Baruchel (who plays a cable access hockey show host) and Evan Goldberg, the film is directed by Michael Dowse (who also did Take Me Home Tonight and the wonderfully ridiculous Fubar movies). The trailer shows off Scott’s character being very quick to throw a punch but very slow with the comebacks.

Prepare to watch idiocy slam your face into the glass:

Now wasn’t David Fincher promising us a The Goon movie? Where’s that head-busting Goon when you need a double feature?

Would you go see it?
