A dramatic new clip from the upcoming independent film Puncture, starring Chris Evans and Brett Cullen, has been released by its distributor, Millennium Entertainment. The clip, titled “I’ll See You in Court,” features Chris Evans‘ character, Mike Weiss, a Houston lawyer who’s determined to take Cullen’s character, Nathaniel Parker, to court.
Mike becomes upset that Nathaniel won’t release a needle that can prevent spreading HIV because it costs too much money. The young lawyer is also upset that his partner, Paul Danziger, played by the film’s co-director, Mark Kassen, and their client settled a lawsuit against Nathaniel out of court.
Puncture marks the feature debuts of Kassan, his brother Adam (who co-directed the movie with him), and screenwriter Chris Lopata. The film follows the talented Mike and his long-time friend Paul, who’s a functioning drug addict, as they’re struggling to keep their personal injury law firm open.
They agree to take on a case involving ER nurse Vicky, portrayed by Vinessa Shaw, who was pricked by a contaminated needle while working. Puncture follows Mike and Paul as they’re determined to stand up for their clients, and take on health care and pharmaceutical conspiracies.
Check out the “I’ll See You in Court” clip below, and tell us what you think. While Chris Evans is known for his action roles as of late, his turn in Puncture already looks promising. I’m looking forward to seeing his performance when the film opens in select theaters on September 23.
