We’ve been sent several clips for the upcoming Chris Evans flick, Puncture, directed by Adam Kassen and co-star Mark Kassen. One or two more come out and you’ll propbably have the entire movie on YouTube. I screened it not too long ago (review up on GUY next Friday) and it’s good, finding the same niche that films like Erin Brockovich, The Insider and The Rainmaker hit. The synopsis:
Mike Weiss (Chris Evans) is a talented young Houston lawyer and a functioning drug addict. Paul Danziger (co-director Mark Kassen), his longtime friend and partner, is the straightlaced and responsible yin to Mike’s yang. Their mom-and-pop personal-injury law firm is getting by, but things really get interesting when they decide to take on a case involving Vicky (Vinessa Shaw), a local ER nurse, who is pricked by a contaminated needle on the job. As Weiss and Danziger dig deeper into the case, a health care and pharmaceutical conspiracy teeters on exposure and heavyweight attorneys move in on the defense. Out of their league but invested in their own principles, the mounting pressure of the case pushes the two underdog lawyers and their business to the breaking point.
You can check out the four clips and the trailer below. Puncture opens in LA, NY and Houston (where the movie is set) next Friday, 9/23.
Thanks to Dacyl for the clips.
