The King of Thieves Trailer

"The problem with gold: it's easy to get, but it's difficult to get rid of." Studiocanal UK has debuted the full-length official trailer for heist comedy The King of Thieves, the latest film from British filmmaker James Marsh (The Theory of Everything, Man on Wire, Project Nim). The film tells the "incredible true story" of the Hatton Garden diamond robbery in London, which took place in April of 2015. A group of retired thieves decide to pull off one of the biggest heists ever in London robbing safe deposit boxes - and they got away with roughly £200 million, but were eventually caught. Michael Caine leads the excellent cast, with Jim Broadbent, Tom Courtenay, Charlie Cox, Michael Gambon, and Ray Winstone. This looks like so much fun, more about the performances and kooky crook characters than anything, but I'm totally up for it.

Here's the full UK trailer (+ quad poster) for James Marsh's The King of Thieves, direct from YouTube:

One of those films you watch for the cast. And you hope it's not total disaster. I certainly wish it to be at least decent, nothing special ...
