RocknRolla Trailer

The first trailer for Guy Ritchie's next British gangster film titled RocknRolla has finally arrived. I must say, this looks like a brilliant return to form. Ritchie hasn't had anything pack a punch like this since Snatch came out in 2001. Courtesy of Empire, we've got the very first international trailer for the film. I've been looking forward to this for a while and it delivers! This is already a perfect introduction to a film that I feel may quickly show up on the top of my best of list at the end of the year. RocknRolla features an incredible cast that includes Gerard Butler, Tom Wilkinson, Jeremy Piven, Thandie Newton, Idris Elba, Ludacris, and Gemma Arterton. Has Ritchie finally returned to form with RocknRolla?

Watch the first trailer for RocknRolla:

RocknRolla is both written and directed by British filmmaker Guy Ritchie, of Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels, Snatch, and Revolver previously. Unlike his previously films, this one has been under a studio, Warner Brothers, from the very start. RocknRolla hit theaters everywhere on October 31st.

You forgot to mention the masterpiece, SWEPT AWAY or whatever

Andrew Wickliffe on Jun 25, 2008


Swept Away was a very useful film. It helped put the last nails in the coffin of Madonna's acting career! Meanwhile this film has a scene where Thandie Newton licks cream off her finger. My prediction: instant classic! I now know what I'll be doing the first weekend in November. Can't go opening night, there's trick-or-treating to be done.

Standard Gut Ritchie goodness. And with Tom Wilkinson? Nice choice.

Alex.. your vagina smells like carpet cleaner.

Jonny on Jun 25, 2008


@ Jonny I think you mean Alex's " Snatch smells like carpet cleaner."

the dude on Jun 25, 2008


Wow, what the heck was that for Jonny? This looks awesome!

Alex Billington on Jun 25, 2008


this looks wicked

valeska on Jun 25, 2008


@ Dude you're right dude... Alex's Snatch does smell like carpet cleaner.

jonny on Jun 25, 2008


Alex... you are on glue. That does NOT look awesome. It looks forced, contrived and the worst sin of all derivative of his own fucking movies. the only thing it has going for it is its poster... which I will gladly hang next to my Showgirls poster in my downstairs bathroom..where I hang all my shitty films posters. P.S Alex.. despite the smell....your vagina is still tight and nicely trimmed. 😛

jonny on Jun 25, 2008


I know I'm in the minority but I literally could not sit through Snatch. I did get as far as 1 hour & 15 minutes before I couldn't take any more & had to call it quits. Brad Pitts crazy Irish character was, in my opinion, the only reason to watch b/c he was hilarious. This actually looks better but we'll see.

Sinner on Jun 25, 2008


@Sinner... nah., you're mostly right. BP was the best part of Snatch. But Brick top is a close second...He 100% owned as one of the top 10 evil/badass motherfucker characters of all time.

jonny on Jun 25, 2008


Jonny, I'm sorry, but this trailer looked great. I'm a huge fan of Snatch and have been excited for RocknRolla since the very first day I heard about it. It actually looks like Ritchie is returning to form and going back to the days of Snatch and Lock Stock. I'm not sure if it was Revolver that left a sour taste in your mouth, but Ritchie has a very unique style of filmmaking that I enjoy and others don't. You obviously fall into the latter and we'll simply agree to disagree on this one. 🙂

Alex Billington on Jun 25, 2008


Wow hell i'm very impressed!

dom on Jun 25, 2008


Alex you ignorant slut. Returning to form is just another way of saying "the best he could do is redo what he was successful at"... If you're honestly trying to tell me that this film is anything but a massive re write of both his most successful films melded into one new film... Then I'm sorry but you need to be shot in the head, and while you are in a coma you are raped by truck drivers. There is nothing unique about Richie's films, beyond the fact he is he is the most successful Tarantino fanboy. I still love you Alex... your kisses are tender and you are a cheap drunk.

jonny on Jun 25, 2008


Alex...when possible, please convert to your usual format as this one is blocked to my server...thank you....and BTW, what is this I hear about you being a cheap drunk???

moldybread on Jun 25, 2008


you guys are all so angry. It's a movie... and it looks decent to me.

Squiggly_P on Jun 25, 2008


Trailer looks awesome, I will definitely check it out. In other things. did anyone notice the "Dark Castle" logo at the start of the trailer? It's kind of weird for a production company that has been making only horror films for nearly a decade to suddenly switch to other genres.

Sean Kelly on Jun 25, 2008


Yep, good trailer. Welcome back Guy. I'm there. But Jeremy stinkin' Piven!? Fuck I hate him.

Movie Fan on Jun 25, 2008


So he's officially admitting to being a one trick pony?

Kent on Jun 25, 2008


looks great, i might break down and buy popcorn at the theatre for this

harrison on Jun 25, 2008


and thandie newton looks amazing

harrison on Jun 25, 2008


Looks great. Piven is magic. Don't care if guy goes back to the old formula as long as I can sit through the movie with a smile on my face.

Tunker on Jun 25, 2008


He goes back to what he was sucsessful with after people dident like Revolver. You do the safe Film then the Guttsy film, which is how it goes. Johnny, Your sad, get your own Moive Fourm then. You guys dident Like his last move so you go back to the same style of complaining funny how that works hu. You want them to try something new then when they do you shit on it like you could do better, Which ya cant. Then when he tryes to make sure he has the cash flow to try again you bust his balls. Get over it, Film looks Awesome. When you of you pull off a string of completlly diffrent films and win awards/ praise for them all You will have room to degrade other actors and directors.

Ripper on Jun 26, 2008


What's with all the hatred boys and girls? The trailer looks great, Jeremy Piven is a hero and Alex's snatch is perfectly servicable! (could be worse could have teeth in it) And people criticizing Richie for making another gangster film is like criticizing Del Toro for only making fantasy or Scorsese for making another Mafia flick or Pacino for always shouting in his movies. He's doing what he's good at, playing to his strengths, would you rather he tried to branch out and try making another romantic comedy with his wife? because we all know where that went! I really hope this is a return for him because it's sad when we lose another great filmmaker up their own arse (paging Mr Shyamalan). Now all we need is for Richard Kelly to sort himself out and all will be right with the world

Sinbad on Jun 26, 2008


He's making the movies he wants to make. If you don't like it, don't watch it, or make your own movie.

DCompose on Jun 26, 2008


Looks great, can't wait to see it.

Keith on Jun 26, 2008


Alex, I'm with you on this one. It looks like it'll be both, Awesome and Fun(like Snatch and Lock Stock..) right next to The Dark Knight on my list

David R on Jun 26, 2008


MAN /!!!!!!.....the trailer ROCKS........ppl do any one knw d soundtrack played in the trailer.......

anand on Jun 27, 2008


Looks so amazing And it's rock & roll queen by the subways

Captain Kirk on Jun 27, 2008


yes this looks really good and i hope guy reverts back to the lock stock and snatch days of making cool movies and the trailer does look like he's heading in the right direction.

original-6ix on Jun 27, 2008


Looks like one hella ride

Dusty on Jun 28, 2008



Jont on Jun 29, 2008


Thandie Newton is just so sexy! X_x this is a must see for me just to see her.

The Delightful Deviant on Jul 7, 2008


Firstly although Revolver was overall a bit of a did have some good solid moments and it had a nice style to it...i just feel it took itself too seriously and it had non of the stand out characters or charm of either Lock Stock.. or Snatch. Now an actor and good friend of mine called Ade who played "Tyrone" the getaway driver in "Snatch" was telling me at least a year ago that Guy Ritchie had shown him the script for Rock'n'rolla and he said it was razor sharp and infact on paper should be even better than both the directors previous gangster cassics! Some great casting in Gerard Butler and Thandie Newton plus a range of quality roles for some other familiar brit faces should make this a must see when it arrives in the next few months.

VegasDanny on Jul 8, 2008


it pisses me off the US got the crappily edited ver. of Revolver. lets hope this film doesnt get the same treatment.

Gabriel on Jul 17, 2008


I saw that Idris Elba was in it, and got all excited, but it doesn't look like he's got that big of a part....oh least there's Gerard Butler!

Maria on Jul 26, 2008


Newton couldnt act her way out of a paper a poor first choice. Im not hopeful....

Afficianado on Sep 3, 2008


I'll admit I've never seen a Guy Ritchie flick yet, but I'm sure this first will entertain me.

Merc on Sep 4, 2008


nice, there friday night!

xerxex on Oct 24, 2008


Oh, by the way Revolver is not for eveyone, only those who are good at mind cluster fucks, I understood it, completely even my 47 year old Father understood the plot. RockNnRolla will be in the same genera as Lock Stock and Snatch, so don't be expecting anything like Revolver. ;>
