This “behind the scenes featurette” of “Welcome to the Punch” was filmed in 2012. The film premiered at cinemas in 2013 around the world.
Director Eran Creevy teamed up with Rory Aitken and Ben Pugh, the producers of his first film ‘Shifty’, which was very well received and critically acclaimed. In this film, Rani and the production team decided on a more action-packed, slick, Hollywood style film.
Welcome to the Punch has an amazing cast – James McAvoy, Mark Strong, Andrea Riseborough, Johnny Harris, Peter Mullan, David Morrissey, Jason Flemyng and Danny Mays among others. It was exec produced by Ridley Scott and Scott Free, so it’s a Hollywood movie with a British heart.
