The trailer has arrived for The Gentlemen, a new crime movie from filmmaker Guy Ritchie (Snatch, RocknRolla).
Featuring a cast that includes Matthew McConaughey, Charlie Hunnam, Colin Farrell and Hugh Grant, among others, the film follows what unfolds when the American head (McConaughey) of a London marijuana empire decides he wants to cash out and leave the business behind. Yeah, gangster mayhem ensues.
It’s good to have Ritchie back in this realm that he made a name with before heading to bigger studio films such as Sherlock Holmes, King Arthur: Legend of the Sword, and this year’s Aladdin remake. He’s got a great cast here and they look to be filling out the array of colourful characters nicely. This could be a lot of fun.
The Gentlemen, also starring Henry Golding, Michelle Dockery, Eddie Marsan, and Jeremy Strong, will be hitting US cinemas on January 24.
