A new Goon: Last of the Enforcers trailer has gone online. The sequel to the 2011 cult comedy sees Seann William Scott return as Doug “The Thug” Glatt, who must learn who how to fight again with the help of his old rival Ross “The Boss” Rhea (Liev Schreiber) so he can get back on the ice, support his wife (Alison Pill) and newborn child, and protect his teammates from a cocky newcomer (Wyatt Russell).
The trailer, which definitely shows too much of the plot, makes it look like the sequel will be as charming as the original. Here’s hoping that Jay Baruchel, who makes his directorial debut on the comedy sequel, can bring the same mix of surprising sweetness and filthy jokes.

Here’s the official synopsis for Goon: Last of the Enforcers:
It’s a new day for the Halifax Highlanders. A pro lockout has reunited old teammates and brought a crew of new players to the bench; notably missing from the line-up, however, is everyone’s favourite enforcer and heart of the team, Doug “The Thug” Glatt. Sidelined after one too many hits and now married with a baby on the way, Doug is hanging up his skates and settling into life as an insurance salesman. But when Doug’s nemesis, Anders Cain, is made captain of the Highlanders and new ownership threatens to tear his team apart, Doug is compelled back into action.
Ignoring the wishes of wife Eva, Doug heads to the rink, discovering an unlikely training partner in fellow retired enforcer and one-time archrival, Ross “The Boss” Rhea. Together with grit, passion and unrivaled loyalty, they will grind out one last chance to do what they do best…protect their team.
