“Welcome to the Punch”, a UK thriller starring James McAvoy and Mark Strong as a cop and crook forced to “put aside their differences” (that old chestnut!) to uncover a conspiracy, opened in the UK last week. Flick unspools in the states on the 27th.

Looks like it could be one of the year’s highlights – behind “Smurfs 2″, of course.
