Colin Firth & Alan Rickman in Coen Brothers Scripted 'Gambit' Trailer
We've gotten a first look photo and a batch of character posters for the Coen Brothers scripted remake of the 1966 caper flick Gambit from director Michael Hoffman (The Last Station), but now we finally have the first trailer from our friends across the pond. The film hits theaters in the UK this fall, so it's time to get the word out overseas, but the film starring Colin Firth, Alan Rickman and Cameron Diaz still doesn't have an official release date here in the US yet. It's a good thing the trailer makes note of a script by Joel and Ethan Coen, because otherwise this looks a bit messy, right down to the terrible voiceover. Watch below?
Here's the first full UK trailer for Michael Hoffman's Gambit, originally from MSN UK:
In Gambit, Private art curator Harry Deane (Colin Firth) devises a finely-crafted scheme to con England's richest man and avid art collector, Lionel Shabandar, (Alan Rickman) into purchasing a fake Monet painting. In order to bait his buyer, he recruits a Texas rodeo queen (Cameron Diaz) to cross the pond and pose as a woman whose grandfather liberated the painting at the end of WWII. Michael Hoffman (The Last Station) directs and The Coen Brothers wrote the film (a remake of the 1966 film starring Michael Caine) which hits UK theaters on November 21st this year, and hits US theaters sometime early in 2013. Well?
