With a headline like that, I better deliver on the goods, eh? Well, I'm pretty confident that after you watch the trailer below you will be pretty excited to see the film.

Believe it or not, Welcome to the Punch opens in theaters next Wednesday and I'm betting that most of you have never heard of it. The film, executive produced by Ridley Scott, stars James McAvoy as a detective who is chasing down a master criminal played by Mark Strong and as you can imagine the trailer is full of plenty of stylistic action sequences.

While not quite up to the standards of McAvoy's Wanted, it definitely wouldn't be out of place in a comparison. If the film lives up to the trailer, you can expect plenty of cat and mouse shenanigans and enough explosions to make you forget that the much-maligned G.I. Joe: Retaliation is opening the same weekend.

Check out the trailer and let us know what you think.
