Witty Second Trailer for Guy Ritchie's Crime Comedy 'The Gentlemen'
"There once was a young and foolish dragon, who came to ask a wise and cunning lion about acquiring his territory." STX Films has debuted a second official trailer for The Gentlemen, the new crime comedy from British filmmaker Guy Ritchie, a return to his London roots following up Disney's Aladdin last year. This is opening in theaters in just a few more weeks, hence the new trailer drop following the first one from a few months ago. Ritchie's The Gentlemen stars Matthew McConaughey as a "very British drug lord", who is actually an American expat, who is trying 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, & Colin Farrell. This looks crazy fun, crazy ridiculous, and just crazy. Can't wait.
Here's the second trailer (+ extra posters) for Guy Ritchie's The Gentlemen, direct from STX's YouTube:
From writer/director Guy Ritchie comes The Gentlemen, a star-studded sophisticated action comedy. The Gentlemen follows American expat Mickey Pearson (Matthew McConaughey) who built a highly profitable marijuana empire in London. When word gets out that he’s looking to cash out of the business forever it triggers plots, schemes, bribery and blackmail in an attempt to steal his domain out from under him. The Gentlemen is both written and directed by British filmmaker Guy Ritchie, director of the films Lock Stock & Two Smoking Barrels, Snatch, Revolver, RocknRolla, Sherlock Holmes and sequel A Game of Shadows, The Man from U.N.C.L.E., King Arthur: Legend of the Sword, and Disney's live-action Aladdin previously. From a story by Guy Ritchie and Ivan Atkinson & Marn Davies. Produced by Ivan Atkinson and Guy Ritchie. STX will debut Ritchie's The Gentlemen in theaters on January 24th, 2020 at the beginning of next year.
I like the characters Guy creates.

Yes, it will become messy, but I just hope it won't end up like a mess ...

I'm hit and miss with Ritchie and his films. This looked amusing, but my problems center around the cast. I don't much care of either McConaughey or especially Hunnam. However, I really like Grant and his bit of forgetting to wash his hands made me laugh...he's prefect for that kind of aside. I like Farrell a lot and like Marsan. So...I don't know. I liked the trailer even though both of the actors I don't care for made me cringe during it. Cable when it hits most likely.

It would've been nicer to let McConaughey go off the deep playing some nutcase (i.e. Brad Pitt in Snatch). Especially since any time he gets any weird characters these days it's in a gut-wrenching drama. Hunnam was surprisingly good in King Arthur, he seemed right at home and his acting felt natural and un-forced. He should be fine here. Grant and Farrell in a Guy Ritchie crime comedy is pure gold, and Henry Golding might be a suprise scene-stealer. In any case I'd love to see Daniel Radcliffe and Karen Gillan in the next Ritchie film, even if it isn't The Real RocknRolla. Any one else from the UK and Ireland you would like to see in the next Ritchie film? (this question is to everyone on FirstShowing!)

Wasn't King Arthur considered a pretty awful movie? I couldn't watch it myself. Tried but it was pretty bad. I disagree with your assessment of Hunnam...in that movie or any movie he's in...that would include this one. Different strokes and all that.
