Chris Evans will Puncture you in this new trailer and poster for the Kassen brothers legal drama

First-time feature film directors Adam and Mark Kassen have brought us a legal drama starring Chris Evans called PUNCTURE. This is the first I'm hearing about this film, and it reminds me that in-between all the big AAA Hollywood gigs, Evans always manages to make time for smaller indie fare. Not all of them are great (in fact, I'd say most aren't very good) but I appreciate his willingness to try non-blockbustery material in an effort to hone his chops.

You can check out the trailer and film's poster below. PUNCTURE, starring Evans, Vinessa Shaw, co-director Mark Kassen, and Michael Biehn (!), opens September 23rd.

Synopsis: Mike Weiss (Chris Evans) is a talented young Houston lawyer and a functioning drug addict. Paul Danziger (co-director Mark Kassen), his longtime friend and partner, is the straight-laced and responsible yin to Mike's yang. Their mom-and-pop personal injury law firm is getting by, but things really get interesting when they decide to take on a case involving Vicky (Vinessa Shaw), a local ER nurse, who is pricked by a contaminated needle on the job. As Weiss and Danziger dig deeper into the case, a health care and pharmaceutical conspiracy teeters on exposure and heavyweight attorneys move in on the defense. Out of their league but invested in their own principles, the mounting pressure of the case pushes the two underdog lawyers and their business to the breaking point.
