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.
