So you weren’t completely sold on the Punisher and his second coming when we showed you the first “Punisher: War Zone” trailer, huh? Well join the club. Not a whole lot of people were sold, although I thought it was pretty groovy myself, but hey, what do I know, I’m typing this while in my mom’s basement wearing nothing but my boxers. In any case, for the unconvinced, Lionsgate has released two new spanking trailers, a second “all purpose” version that reveals more of the origins of the Punisher’s nemesis, Jigsaw (boy is he fugly!), and a bloody as all get-out Red Band trailer that contains all the exploding heads, eye punching, and general bloody whoopass you’ve come to expect from your modern day vigilante with big ass gun characters. And oh yeah, there’s also a new poster for the movie. Did you hear? Vengance now has a name.
Waging his one-man war on the world of organized crime, ruthless vigilante-hero Frank Castle sets his sights on overeager mob boss Billy Russoti. After Russoti is left horribly disfigured by Castle, he sets out for vengeance under his new alias: Jigsaw. With the “Punisher Task Force” hot on his trail and the FBI unable to take Jigsaw in, Frank must stand up to the formidable army that Jigsaw has recruited before more of his evil deeds go unpunished.
Ray Stevenson, as the Punisher, punishes the crap out of bad guys December 5. Here’s a new poster:
