The first trailer for the hockey comedy Goon has gone online. The movie centers on a sweet, simple-minded guy (Seann William Scott) with the talent for being the ever-loving piss out of people, which makes him ideally suited for the occupation of hockey thug. I caught the flick at TIFF and thought it was painfully funny, and I’m glad that it’s coming to a wider audience. The trailer does a good job covering the plot, showcasing Scott’s terrific performance, and it doesn’t give away too many of the great jokes. Hit the jump for more. [Update: The red band trailer for the film has just been released, so we’ve included that after the jump as well.]
Thanks to JoBlo for the trailer. The film also stars Jay Baruchel (who co-wrote the script), Kim Coates, Eugene Levy, Alison Pill, and Liev Schreiber. Goon will probably be released sometime next year.
Here’s the red band trailer (via IGN):
