Gerard Butler & 50 Cent in First Trailer for Crime Film 'Den of Thieves'
"You're not the bad guys… we are." Another new Heat wannabe movie. STX Entertainment has dropped the first trailer for an action crime thriller titled Den of Thieves, from writer/director Christian Gudegast. The movie is about a thief who gets trapped between two sides of a heist and two sets of "criminals" - an elite unit of the LA County Sheriff's Dept. and the state's most successful bank robbery crew. Gerard Butler stars, with 50 Cent, Pablo Schreiber, O'Shea Jackson Jr., Sonya Balmores, Maurice Compte, Evan Jones, Brian Van Holt, Jordan Bridges, and Eric Braeden. This seems like it's going to have quite a few big twists, and characters who don't turn out to be who they seem to be (obviously enough). With Gerard Butler, 50 Cent, and a January release date, this is pretty much a disaster in the making. Have fun.
Here's the first official trailer (+ poster) for Christian Gudegast's Den of Thieves, direct from YouTube:
A Los Angeles crime saga in the vein of Heat, Den of Thieves follows the intersecting and often personally connected lives of an elite unit of the LA County Sheriff's Department and the state's most successful bank robbery crew as the outlaws plan a seemingly impossible heist on the Federal Reserve Bank of downtown Los Angeles. Den of Thieves is directed by Los Angeles native Christian Gudegast, making his feature directorial debut after writing the screenplays for London Has Fallen and A Man Apart. The screenplay is written by Christian Gudegast and Paul Scheuring. STX Entertainment will be releasing Gudegast's Den of Thieves in theaters everywhere starting January 19th, 2018 at the start of next year. Who's down for this?

Butler aging like a juice box of Welch's grape drink.

Why is "50 Cent" in the headline when he gets bottom billing? Pablo Schreiber getting the stiff-arm because he was in a soldier movie?

Yeah, shoot 'em, hold 'em. Well, as we all know, together with Brecht, the real crime is founding the bank, not robing it. So, none of those guys have any chance against that ...

This whole premise is stupid Hollywood BS. Stealing electronically is much more safe than strong arm heists these days. The only hold-ups you read about are 7-11/convenience store robberies with tweakers trying to get some quick cash. The big money is in hacking/skimming. And to tackle the Federal Reserve is laughable. And if it were to happen, it would be by hacking, not breaking into it with guns blazing. This is just an excuse to put some lame action to a lame plot. However, Hollywood (aside from Mr. Robot) still doesn't know how to properly tell hacking stories and I'm betting they feel it wouldn't make for compelling film.
