GOON EXCLUSIVE: The online world trailer premiere

Starting with last September's TIFF Festival opener Score: A Hockey Musical, it would seem Canada's unofficial pasttime is making its way into the entertainment spotlight in a big way. What started as a one-off last year has bloomed into a full-fledged celebration as not one, not two but THREE hockey films made their debut tonight as part of the prestigious annual film fest. Perhaps the biggest of the three film debuts is director Michael Dowse's Goon. Featuring Canadian actor and co-writer Jay Baruchel alongside Seann William Scott and Liev Schreiber, the film follows a bouncer who, shunned by his brainy family, decides to take on the leadership of a team of under performing misfits.

Cineplex had the chance to head to the Winnipeg set of the film last year but we've been keeping pretty mum on what we saw so as not to spoil you, dear reader. I know, that's us...generous to a fault. As a thank you for being so patient, we've got a very first look at the upcoming film.

So without further ado, check out the very first trailer below now!
