Goon Trailer: Liev Schreiber and Hockey?

The hockey comedy Goon screened at the Toronto Film Festival and found itself a distribution deal from Magnet Releasing -- part of Magnolia Pictures -- of which it should be proud. And now, the Seann William Scott and Liev Schreiber starring film has released its trailer.

Seann William Scott in Goon

Scott, who is currently filming the American Pie reunion movie American Reunion, is Goon’s leading man, a bar bouncer whose passion for Canada’s favorite sport of hockey knows no bounds. Schreiber, meanwhile, stars as a competitor of Scott when he joins a ragtag hockey club in search of some hope.

In the game of hockey, most teams have what many call an “enforcer,” a player who lays down the law when a star player is checked a little too hard. Judging by the trailer below, the Shakespeare trained Schreiber is perfect in that role... for that matter, so is Scott!

Goon is based on the book Goon: The True Story of an Unlikely Journey into Minor League Hockey and brought to the big screen in a screenplay by Scott and Schreiber’s co-star Jay Baruchel (The Sorcerer’s Apprentice).
