Eric Powell's cult comic makes the leap to the silver screen

It’s too early to call quality on this one, but seeing as The Goon is produced by David Fincher odds are stacked in its favor. Not only is the animation pretty remarkable, but its also very loyal visually to the original material. Based on Eric Powell’s 1999 cult comic from Dark Horse, The Goon follows the adventures of a muscle-bound strongarm who’s the primary enforcer for a mobster named Labrazio. He and his friend/sidekick Franky battle off against the Nameless Zombie Priest and his numerous evil zombie gangs, with additional ghosts and ghouls galore. As the script is being penned by Powell himself, you can at least be sure the soul of the comic will stay intact. See the trailer below…
