STX Entertainment has released the official trailer for the upcoming sophisticated action comedy The Gentlemen.
Written and directed by Guy Ritchie, the movie stars Matthew McConaughey as American expat Mickey Pearson who, built a highly profitable marijuana empire in London. According to the official synopsis, “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 cast ensemble also includes Charlie Hunnam, Henry Golding, Michelle Dockery, Jeremy Strong, Eddie Marsan, Colin Farrell, and Hugh Grant.
The trailer gives viewers a glimpse into the “adventures” McConaughey’s character faces, along with his fellows. “If you smell smoke it’s because there’s a fire,” Michelle Dockery’s character tells McConaughey’s in one of the scenes.
McConaughey’s character also shares his wisdom by saying that “in the jungle, the only way a lion survives is not by acting like a king, but by being the king”.
The song used in the trailer is the 1967 single “Sunshine Of Your Love” by the British rock band Cream, from their second studio album, “Disraeli Gears”.
The Gentlemen, previously known as “Toff Guys” and “Bush,” was first showed off at CinemaCon back in April, and is now slated for release on January 24, 2020 in the US.
