Full UK Trailer for Retired Crooks Heist Comedy 'The King of Thieves'
"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.
