Mania Exclusive: PUNISHER WAR ZONE TV Spot

Exclusive new footage from the Marvel/Lionsgate production

Lionsgate has provided Mania readers with an exclusive first look at the new TV ad for 'Punisher War Zone'.

Watch closely for a couple of good frames of Dominc West's Jigsaw. One other point of interest we noticed is the use of the "Marvel Knights" brand name in place of the traditional Marvel flip-comic graphic that fans have seen before all Marvel films since 'Spider-Man'.

'Punisher War Zone', directed by Lexi Alexander, stars Ray Stevenson (HBO’s “Rome”) as The Punisher Frank Castle and Dominic West as Jigsaw. The film opens December 5th.

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.

Excellent.  Looking a hell of a lot better than it did at first.  I wouldn't have minded a Thomas Jane sequel, they both are a hell of a lot better than the first punisher movie.  At least, I hope there are no scenes of sitting naked in the sewers in this one.  uggh.

" The guilty must be punished" while I sit here naked in a sewer and look menacing.

Yeah, i`m looking forward to this.

based on the trailers I've seen, this movie is not going to be as good as the Thomas Jane version.  Ray Stevenson has ruined the punisher character, Thomas Jane is punisher.  This movie should not have been made with lexi alexandra as director, they should have brought back the original director Jonathan Hensleigh.   This movie is going to suck more than Max Payne.

I don't think the MK imprint is new, I could swear I saw it on one of the older trailers already. Jigsaw looks interesting, can't wait to get a real good look at him. I don't care that TJ is gone. Really looking forward to this also.

Oooh!  This one is smokin' hot!  Thomas WHO?  Ray Stevenson is going to make us forget there ever WAS another Punisher.  Twenty-eight more days until vengeance is HIS!  Woo hoo!!!

bearly...What the hell are you talking about? T.J was fine with me but bring back Hensleigh? His direction is on of the things that ruined the movie for me, fuck that last movie.... this movies going to blow it away.

As for Marvel Knights...Why doesent Marvel just do these them selves? They could release all there "not family freindly" Movies under the Knights baner with Lower budgets but not to low , and release them aimed at older veiwers with 14A(pg-13/R in the us) or 18A(hard R in the US). The Blade Trilogy as well as Man Thing would fit under this baner and think of the posabilitys....Dare Devil(not counting the first one)  Ghost Rider(in my mind the 1st one never happened), and Moon Knight I would love to see a MoonKnight film, done right mind you.

<P itxtvisited="1">Filch you have to stop sniffing that glue, it is really messing with your mind.  You are confusing Hensleigh with the Mark Goldblatt (the director of Dolph Lundgren's punisher film).  Hensleigh's film is the best vigilante film i have seen  (he pulled of a great movie given the amount of time he had to make it and the budget provided).  And as for Ray Stevenson, the reason why you can find the letter "S" in his name twice is because Punisher War Zone is going to suck twice as much as T.J's Punisher.</P>
