Guy Ritchie’s “The Gentlemen” dropped a new trailer on Wednesday morning. Ritchie wrote and directed the film, which stars Matthew McConaughey, Charlie Hunnam, Henry Golding, Michelle Dockery, Jeremy Strong, Eddie Marsan, Colin Farrell, and Hugh Grant. The movie follows American Mickey Pearson (Matthew McConaughey) who built a highly profitable marijuana empire in London.
The story picks up when rumors swirl that Pearson is looking to sell his profitable business, and they trigger plots, schemes, bribery, and blackmail all in an attempt to steal his domain out from under him. STX Entertainment stopped short of announcing the premiere date for the movie but did say that it is “Coming Soon” in the trailer. The movie is expected to launch in theaters in 2020.
The film also serves as a reunion for Guy Ritchie and Charlie Hunnam, who starred in Ritchie’s “King Arthur: Legend of the Sword” in 2017. That movie was a rare miss for Ritchie and opened in third place on the domestic charts with a $15.3M weekend. The film went on to make $148.6M worldwide, short of the movie’s estimated $175M budget. Ritchie more than made up for it with the live-action “Aladdin,” which opened at the top of the box office in 2019 with a $91.5M debut and a worldwide gross of over $1.05B.
“The Gentlemen” also serves as a return to form for the writer and director, and seems more in line with his earlier works like “Snatch,” and “Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels.” Ritchie also brought “The Man from U.N.C.L.E.” “Sherlock Holmes,” “Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows,” “RockNRolla,” and “Revolver” to the screen.
Fans will have to wait a little longer to get an exact premiere date for “The Gentlemen,” but we expect a winter-debut for the crime-comedy. Fans of the director can watch the official trailer below.
