Goon 2 trailer is here- and it looks great

Goon arrived in cinemas back in early 2012 out of nowhere and ended up being one of the surprise comedies of the year.

Starring Seann William Scott as a dense but nice ice hockey player who is pretty much brought in to beat the ever-loving crap out of the other team whenever that's appropriate. It works so well because Scott plays his character as such a nice guy, who also happens to be great at ultraviolence.

Surprisingly, there's a sequel all ready for release and the first trailer has arrived. It's red band and has a lot of cursing, just so you know.

Looking good.

For the sequel, writer/actor Jay Baruchel has taken on the role of director as well, marking his first time at the helm of a feature film. The rest of the cast is back too, including Alison Pill and the rather great Liev Schreiber.

Goon 2 is set for release in Canada in March 2017 and in Europe later in the year.
