London Boulevard Trailer

"You're a gangster, a part of my firm." FilmDistrict has revealed their official trailer for William Monahan's London Boulevard, the British gangster drama starring Colin Farrell as a thug recently released from prison who is hired to watch over a movie star and, of course, falls in love with her. Keira Knightley plays the starlet, but the real scene-stealer in this one is Ray Winstone, who looks like he tears up every scene he's in. We actually featured a trailer for this last year, but since it's just getting a US release, we finally have the official US one as well, and it looks damn good. Also stars David Thewlis, Anna Friel and Eddie Marsan.

London Boulevard tells the story of a man (Colin Farrell) just released from prison who falls in love with a reclusive young movie star and finds himself in a duel with a vicious gangster. Based on Ken Bruen's book.

London Boulevard is both written and directed by Oscar winning American screenwriter William Monahan, who's making his directorial debut with this after winning an Academy Award for writing The Departed. He also worked on the Kingdom of Heaven, Body of Lies and Edge of Darkness scripts. This was based on Ken Bruen's novel. FilmDistrict will be releasing London Boulevard limited starting on November 11 this fall.

isn't this movie already came out?

US release.

London Boulevard should have been released a year ago and it is a disgrace that not only has it been needlessly delayed but it is only getting a limited release. It has a stellar cast and shouldn’t go unnoticed by the public when it finally comes out.

Looks good.  I hope a sappy ending won't ruin it.  I think the best gangster movies are the ones that don't end well for anybody.  Unless they're meant to be quirky, like Guy Ritchie's Lock, Stock, and Two Smoking Barrels, or Snatch.

i commend anybody who can sit through such a boring movie

It's been out in the UK for quite a while. It promises a lot but, unfortunately, fails to deliver. It's a reasonable way to spend a couple of hours if you've nothing better to do but I can't recommend anyone rush out to see it.

It's In Bruges meets Notting Hill meets Layer Cake.

I heard In Bruges was good but I couldn't get into and thus didn't finish it for shame. I hope it's not as bad a mix as you're painting it to be.

Lookin' good

Always funny too see new trailers for films you've already seen almost year ago. As for London Boulevard, it's pretty watchable but not that memorable.

it borrows a lot from Layer Cake, which remains the better film.  very 'meh'.

MMR on Oct 18, 2011


I was thinking the same thing, but this has humor where Layer was serious in my opinion. Both could be good in their own right. I'm interested in this, but Layer Cake is Layer Cake.

Johnny Neat on Oct 18, 2011


Looks good, I prefer guy richies movies but this seems a little more serious. 

Quick_Movies on Oct 18, 2011


Ive seen it, dont bother!

Bazzmosis on Oct 18, 2011


This looks fantastic... though I will say I wish they'd written it as a sequel to "In Bruges"

This has been out in the Uk for ages and trust me when I say it is a load of donkey shit.

eyespy on Oct 18, 2011


I agree, it is.

Daniel Duarte on Oct 18, 2011


Looks good. Winstone is always enjoyable.

I watched it on it's UK release. If you're a fan of the genre I think you'll like it. The casting is awesome, the acting is great, the cinematography is understated. But the script, the story and some of the dialogue are weak, the characters a little too stereotypical, someone set the dial to eleven. It could have been a much better movie than it is, which is a real shame.

Darn it, the video has been removed. I read a couple of bad reviews of this but I'm still curious about it, will have to see the trailer first though.

I thought it was a little pointless. Good cast, but just a bit of a nonsense really.

Crapola on Oct 18, 2011


The movie was awful. Has released on my country earlier this year. Still the worst I've seen this year.

Sasono Astho Baskoro on Oct 22, 2011


The movie is far from awful or "shit". It's a decent rental, nothing great. If you want great, read the book instead.
