First Full Trailer for Guy Ritchie's New Crime Comedy 'The Gentlemen'
"These people are gunna clean house – and you are part of that house." STX Films has unveiled the first official trailer for The Gentlemen, a wily new crime comedy set in London from British filmmaker Guy Ritchie, following his work with Disney making Aladdin last year. It's great to see him getting back to his Snatch and Lock Stock roots again. The Gentlemen stars Matthew McConaughey as a "very British drug lord", actually an American expat, who tries to sell off his highly profitable marijuana empire to a dynasty of Oklahoma billionaires - which kicks off "plots, schemes, bribery and blackmail" galore. Featuring an all-star ensemble cast including Hugh Grant, Charlie Hunnam, Henry Golding, Michelle Dockery, Jeremy Strong, Eddie Marsan, and Colin Farrell. Ohh damn, this looks and sounds and plays as great as I was hoping! Guy Ritchie is back! Can't wait to get my hands on this, it better be as wildly entertaining as Snatch.
