Point Blank Trailer Online
Not the Lee Marvin; the French one

If you're still feeling a bit sleepy after the weekend, here's something to wake you up: a trailer for French action/thriller Point Blank (aka À bout portant in its original tongue). Coming from director and screenwriter Fred Cavayé, who previously got his thriller on with Pour Elle (aka Anything For Her), it's another race against time for a man in love.

This time the star is Gilles Lellouche as Samuel, who's a male nurse charged with treating a man run over by a motorbike (Roschdy Zem). Unluckily for him, his patient is a thief and underworld figures kidnap Samuel's pregnant wife (Anaya) and order him to hand over his charge in order to get her back. Oh, and he only has three hours. Cue a lot of running and quite a smattering of violence.

Point Blank is out on June 10 here in the UK. See it before the probably inevitable remake.
