First poster for Eran Creevy’s Welcome to the Punch

Empire has posted the first poster for Eran Creevy’s British crime drama Welcome to the Punch. Before you run and hide from another Brit Gangster flick this one has real promise with James McEvoy and Mark Strong joining the Shifty director. The pair feature strongly on the frankly quite stylish poster too to reinforce the quality.

McAvoy plays a cop whose nemesis (Strong) suddenly reappears after having eluded capture years earlier.

The film is heavily set in modern City of London and sees the main pair joined by a strong support cast that includes Andrea Riseborough, Daniel Mays, Elyes Gabel, and Peter Mullan.

Welcome To The Punch hits Irish screens on March 15th.
