Watch: First Trailer for William Monahan's 'London Boulevard'
More British gangster flicks, hell yes, there can never be enough! Ready to see the In Bruges prequel? Not really, but close enough. A new trailer has debuted on YouTube (via SlashFilm) for screenwriter William Monahan's directorial debut, London Boulevard, a gritty British crime drama/thriller about a man just released with prison who falls in love with a movie star and finds himself in a fight with a vicious gangster. The film stars Colin Farrell, Keira Knightley, Ray Winstone, Stephen Graham, David Thewlis, Eddie Marsan, Anna Friel. This actually looks pretty damn good, I'm very much looking forward to seeing it now.

FilmDistrict will be releasing London Boulevard in the US, but has not set a release date yet.
