Seann William Scott is "Touched By the Fist of God" in Latest Trailer for Goon

23 December 2011 5:00 AM, PST | Reelzchannel.com | See recent ReelzChannel news »

A new trailer — the fourth since September, if you're counting — for the ice hockey comedy Goon has been released and it makes it pretty clear that this movie is more about fighting than hockey (just count the punch-to-shot ratio). The movie stars Seann William Scott as Doug "The Thug" Glatt, a going-nowhere slacker who is "discovered" by a minor league hockey coach and invited to join the team. Doug can't skate, but he has been "touched by the fist of God" and becomes a hero to the fans because of his ability to pretty much beat up anybody. Of course, the league's reigning goon, Ross "The Boss" Rhea (Liev Schreiber), doesn't take too kindly to an upstart like Doug stealing his thunder, so the gloves are coming off and it's going to be a knock-down, drag-out fight to the finish.

Seann William Scott Knocks Everybody Out In Great New Trailer For Goon

23 December 2011 1:00 AM, PST | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

We’ve seen some brilliant things from Seann William Scott’s next movie, the upcoming ice hockey comedy Goon, in the past few months, most recently including the film’s first UK trailer and poster as well as an awesome clip from the film just a few days ago.

Along with Scott, the film also stars Jay Baruchel, Liev Schreiber, Alison Pill, Kim Coates, and Scott’s American Pie co-star, Eugene Levy (who he’ll be returning alongside in that franchise for American Reunion come April next year).

We’ve now got a great new trailer to share with you, courtesy of iTunes Movie Trailers, via ComingSoon.net, with plenty of awesome new footage from the film and lots of Scott beating the hell out of everybody in sight. It’s a green band trailer this time around, so if you’re still at work, this should lift your spirits »

Goon - Seann William Scott Swears a Lot in This Nsfw Clip

22 December 2011 4:00 PM, PST | GeekTyrant | See recent GeekTyrant news »

Here is a new Nsfw clip from the hockey comedy Goon, which is directed Michael Dowse. The film stars Seann William ScottJay BaruchelLiev Schreiber, Alison Pill, Kim Coates, Eugene Levy, and Marc-André Grondin. I think this looks hilarious, and am looking forward to seeing this in theaters. 

I loved Slap Shot, another raunchy hockey comedy starring Paul Newman. Whenever I see clips or trailers for this movie, I can't help but think of that.

Here is a description of the film:

Goon [goon]

Noun

1.    A hired hoodlum or thug

2.    A stupid, foolish or awkward person

Meet Doug Glatt (Seann William Scott).

He may not be the sharpest blade on the rink, but he’s got a killer right hook.

When his permanently wasted best friend Pat (Jay Baruchel) runs into trouble, Doug’s ability to beat the crap out of everyone and everything impresses a sports coach who signs »

‘Goon’ Green-Band Trailer and Clip – In Canada, They Even Beat the Crap Out of Each Other Politely

22 December 2011 12:00 PM, PST | Slash Film | See recent Slash Film news »

[1] Twelve years after the release of American Pie, I still associate Seann William Scott most strongly with the role of obnoxious, douchey Stifler. But in Michael Dowse's hockey comedy Goon, Scott stars as Stifler's polar opposite: "Doug, the nicest guy you'll ever fight." Scripted by Jay Baruchel and Evan Goldberg, the film follows a bouncer whose fighting skills land him a spot on a minor league hockey team, despite the fact that he can't even skate. Writer Baruchel does double duty as Doug's best pal, while Alison Pill stars as Doug's love interest and Liev Schreiber as Doug's nemesis. Watch the new green-band trailer and a clip from the film after the jump. The green-band trailer differs from the red-band trailer [2] released last month mostly in that it's less offensive, with less cursing, less lewd gesturing from Baruchel, and less blood. Happily, the omissions don't take away from what »

New Goon Trailer. I Still Don’t Get This Hockey Thing.

22 December 2011 7:43 AM, PST | Beyond Hollywood | See recent Beyond Hollywood news »

If hockey really is as premeditated and silly as “Goon” makes it appear, then I might pick up this sport. It’s exactly the kind of mindlessly goofy, violent behavior I’m predisposed to appreciating. But if this is some campy take on the sport (invitations to fight and all), then I’m gonna feel mighty gypped. Either way, check out the latest trailer for the Canadian-heavy “Goon”, starring Sean William Scott as a dumb mofo who happens to know how to throw a right hook. And a left. And another right. You get the idea. Doug Glatt, a slacker who discovers he has a talent for brawling is approached by a minor league hockey coach and invited to join the team as the “muscle.” Despite the fact that Glatt can’t skate his best friend, Pat, convinces him to give it a shot, and Glatt becomes a hero to the team and their fans, »

‘Goon’ U.S. Trailer & Clips: Foul-Mouthed Humor & Polite Hockey Violence

22 December 2011 7:10 AM, PST | ScreenRant.com | See recent Screen Rant news »

Fubar series director Michael Dowse’s Goon is the latest addition to the hockey sports comedy sub-genre, joining similarly rowdy, (literally) hard-hitting comedies like Slap Shot – and, less directly, Happy Gilmore. It is based on the non-fictional memoir “Goon: The True Story of an Unlikely Journey into Minor League Hockey,” as written by Adam Frattasio and Doug Smith (the book chronicles the latter’s experiences).

Today, we have an official U.S. trailer and a pair of R-Rated clips from Goon – and like the previous bits of footage unveiled from the film, it’s chock-full with the sorts of outrageous humor you would expect from a film co-scripted by Evan Goldberg (Superbad, Pineapple Express) and based around oddball minor league hockey players.

Goon stars Seann William Scott as Doug Glatt, a slow-but-likable bar bouncer who catches the eye ...

Seann William Scott Loves Punching In ‘Goon’ Theatrical Trailer

21 December 2011 8:33 PM, PST | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

Coming off the red band trailer last month, we have a new theatrical trailer for Michael Dowse‘s hockey comedy Goon. The film may have a touching human side, but the biggest takeaway I get from this peace is that Seann William Scott‘s biggest skill is punching people in the face. Co-written by two members of the Judd Apatow group -  Jay Baruchel and Evan Goldberg – we called Goon ”foul-mouthed, good-natured and above all, a good time” after its Tiff premiere this fall. It actually does look like quite a bit a fun, especially the Percocet joke, and seems like a good VOD rental. Co-starring Seann William Scott, Alison Pill, Baruchel and Liev Schreiber, check out the trailer below via Apple.

Synopsis:

Doug Glatt is a gentle giant who’s lethal with his fists but reluctant to use them. That is, until he goes to a hockey game and flattens a visiting player. »

Watch A New Trailer And Extended Clip From The Hockey Comedy Goon

21 December 2011 4:13 PM, PST | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

There's no reason not to be excited for Goon at this point. First, its a comedy about hockey, a subgenre that has brought us the awesomeness that is Slap Shot, The Mighty Ducks, and Happy Gilmore (to an extent). Next, the script was written by Jay Baruchel and Evan Goldberg, both of whom regularly prove themselves as two very funny guys. Then there's the cast, which includes great names like Seann William Scott, Liev Schreiber, Alison Pill, Eugene Levy, and Kim Coates. Lastly: it's a hockey comedy that largely focuses on characters beating the crap out of each other. What's not to love? Keep that excitement going as the new trailer for Good has premiered online. Check it out below or in HD over on Apple. Coincidentally, Hey You Guys! has also posted the first extended clip from the movie which you can see here. In the film, Seann William »

A new trailer for the hockey comedy Goon has been released. This is the fourth trailer we’ve seen thus far, but it’s arguably the best yet. Seann William Scott stars as a guy who has a knack for fighting that’s recruited to join a hockey team.

It’s directed by Michael Dowse and is set for release in the UK 6th January. As well as this clip, I can reveal that we’ve seen it and really liked it! Goon comes from the same people that made Pineapple Express and Superbad and if you’re a fan of those movies, you’re going to love this.

Scroll down to watch the clip from the movie and please note, it contains rather a lot of swearing.

Meet Doug Glatt (Seann William Scott).

Review: Goon

Goon

Stars: Seann William Scott, Liev Schrieber, Alison Pill, Jay Baruchel | Written by Jay Baruchel, Evan Goldberg | Directed by Michael Dowse

My experiences as a film blogger have taught me many things. That you have to take the good with the bad, for example. That you whilst may never receive any comments on the vast majority of your reviews, any criticism of Michael Bay will result in abuse.  And that whilst not a sure thing, the quality of catering at a screening is often directly inverse to the quality of the film. So when I was presented with hotdogs from Bodean’s prior to the press screening of Goon, an alarm bell sounded in my mind.

I need not have worried. Goon, purportedly based on a true story, tells the tale of Doug Glatt (Sean William Scott), a stupid but kindly bouncer who stumbles into minor-league ice hockey due to »

Dreams Of A Life (12A)

(Carol Morley, 2011, UK) Zawe Ashton, Neelam Bakshi, Jonathan Harden. 95 mins

This ingenious documentary unravels a bizarre mystery that cuts to our deepest emotional fears, but it also transcends its own genre. The mystery is Joyce Vincent – who tragically died alone in her London flat, aged 38, and whose body wasn't found until three years later. Who Joyce was and how this came to pass is gradually (partially) pieced together, as Morley tracks down former associates and stages reconstructions of her life (with Ashton, unrecognisable from her Fresh Meat incarnation). What starts as a horrific news item becomes the moving story of a real person, albeit an enigmatic one. And in the process, the film itself shifts from sobering documentary to dignifying biopic, giving this strange, sad story a subtle avant garde flourish.
