Watch Rhys Ifans as Howard Marks in a New 'Mr. Nice' Trailer
How about a bit of British fun to start off your Friday morning? IGN has debuted the official US trailer for Bernard Rose's Mr. Nice, the British biopic about Howard Marks (played by Rhys Ifans), an elite British drug smuggler and one of Britain's most wanted criminals. In addition to Ifans, this stars David Thewlis, Chloe Sevigny, Elsa Pataky, Andrew Tiernan and Jack Huston. This new trailer is kind of a rehash of the promo trailer from last year, but since that one isn't available anymore, you might as well watch this one! Looks like it will be a solidly entertaining narcotics flick, I'm looking forward to checking this out. Enjoy!
