Seann William Scott Is Touched By ‘The Fist Of God’ In New GOON Trailer & TV Spot


Back when I was a kid I got a Sega Megadrive (yes I’m old) and if it wasn’t Fifa Soccer it had to be NHL Ice Hockey, a sport that was rearely shown on UK tv but I just loved it. I couldn’t get why I liked it, I just did, so roll onto present day and we have a Ice hockey comedy GOON! Today we get what is apparently the fourth trailer and from the trailer we can see this one is for those Ice Hockey fans who love the fighting element of the sport rather than the actual game!

Seann William Scott is loveable nice guy but dumb as puck Doug , foul mouth but touched by the ‘fist of God’ when he took out a opposition player of the team he supports who end up signing Doug up as their Muscle man goon. The difference between Goon and Moneyball  is the fact ice-hockey accessible here in the UK, we have a league compared to Baseball which does have a following this side of the Atlantic however its minimal.This doesn’t mean to say Goon is a better film but we can guarantee a few more laughs and non Americans can appreciate it without the need to understand the rules of the game.

Along with the new trailer (which has plenty of unseen footage) we do have a new tv spot for the film to, which is arriving in UK&Ireland January 6th but is there a UK trailer?  Nothing has been sent to The Peoples Movies nor have we seen the preview but word on the street its a good film which also stars  Jay Baruchel​, Liev Schreiber​, Alison Pil, Kim Coates​ and Eugene Levy



Goon [goon]


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 him up to annihilate the opposition and a feisty female fan (Alison Pill) who digs dangerous sports

Sometimes it takes an unlikely hero to unite a team and soon Doug finds himself recruited by the flailing Halifax Highlanders, who desperately need a goon to protect screwed up ex-star player, La Flamme. In between packing punches and breaking bones, the team bond and find their place in the big league.

But when Doug comes fist to face with notoriously violent pro player Rhea (Liev Schreiber) who is hell bent on putting on a show for his retirement fight, the gloves are well and truly off….

From the creators of Superbad and Pineapple Express comes an ice cool comedy that proves that it’s not the winning, it’s the taking apart of the other team that counts.
