WATCH: James McAvoy Discusses 'Welcome To The Punch' And A Role He Seems To Have Studied Quite A Lot

Next Monday sees the DVD and Blu-Ray release of Ridley Scott-produced British gangster thriller, 'Welcome to the Punch', and to celebrate, we've got an exclusive video of the charming James McAvoy discussing his role.

WATCH above - do you think James McAvoy has thought a bit about his character's back-story any?

McAvoy stars alongside Mark Strong and Andrea Riseborough in what Empire Magazine called 'a knock-out action movie' on its cinema release. 'Bold and brilliant' was the Sunday Mirror's verdict.

Here's some blurb...

Ex-criminal Jacob Sternwood (Strong) is forced to return to London from his Icelandic hideaway when his son is arrested leaving the country and suffering from a gunshot wound. This gives Sternwood’s arch enemy, detective Max Lewinsky (McAvoy), his last chance to catch the man he’s always been after. As the two nemeses hurtle towards each other, they start to uncover a deeper conspiracy that both will need to solve in order to survive.

'Welcome to the Punch is out on DVD and Blu-Ray on Monday 29 July. Watch the trailer below...
