Millenium Entertainment have now put up a new clip from the film showing Evans going up against Brett Cullen (Ghost Rider, the upcoming The Dark Knight Rises), and it’s looking pretty great too.
Directed by brothers Adam and Mark Kassen, from a script by Chris Lopata, Puncture marks the feature film debut of all three.
“Mike Weiss (Chris Evans) is a talented young Houston lawyer and a functioning drug addict. Paul Danziger (co-director Mark Kassen), his longtime friend and partner, is the straight-laced and responsible yin to Mike’s yang. Their mom-and-pop personal injury law firm is getting by, but things really get interesting when they decide to take on a case involving Vicky (Vinessa Shaw), a local ER nurse, who is pricked by a contaminated needle on the job. As Weiss and Danziger dig deeper into the case, a health care and pharmaceutical conspiracy teeters on exposure and heavyweight attorneys move in on the defense. Out of their league but invested in their own principles, the mounting pressure of the case pushes the two underdog lawyers and their business to the breaking point.”
It’s not often we get to see Evans in a dramatic role like this, and given that we tend to see him most frequently in action films, it’s not hard to forget his talents are actually quite diverse. From what we’ve seen in the first trailer and this new clip, entitled ‘I’ll see you in court’, he plays the young lawyer pretty damn well, and this is a movie I’m really interested to see.
Unfortunately, its independent nature means that it’s not looking likely to find a UK release in cinemas after it comes out in America at the end of the month, so we might have to wait for its DVD/Blu-Ray release to see how it all turns out. The story is an intriguing one though, and this new clip supports the brilliance of the trailer we saw a few weeks ago. Without further ado, here it is.
