Am I the only one who’s moderately looking forward to Paul McGuigan’s Push? Granted, the premise is strikingly similar to Heroes, but to me, it looked like a movie version of Heroes without all the terrible campiness, dialogue, and acting. Plus, Paul McGuigan‘s Lucky Number Slevin, while not a great film, showed a lot of promise. Still, the premise of the film (i.e. that there are people with super powers among us, and that the government is trying to harness their abilities for its own ends) is easy to make a complete mess out of, so I’m cautiously optimistic at best.
In any case, a new Push clip has surfaced online at Apple. This clip, “Psychic Shodown,” is of a battle between Nick Gant (Chris Evans), a second-generation telekinetic (AKA “mover”) with an enemy mover. While it starts out somewhat interestingly, it quickly devolves into the two of them punching each other using psychic-enhanced fist bubbles. Hit the jump to see the clip, and let us know what you think in the comments.

Watch the clip in High Definition on Apple. Push will be out in theaters on Friday, February 6.
Discuss: Does this clip make you more likely to see Push or less likely?
