Director Guy Ritchie is returning to his London gangster roots next year with the ensemble crime film The Gentlemen, but he’s not done scratching that crime thriller itch just yet. Ritchie is already lining up his next film, Cash Truck, and he’s hired Jason Statham and Scott Eastwood to star, reuniting those actors after they worked together on 2017’s The Fate of the Furious.

Guy Ritchie and Jason Statham are getting the band back together. The duo, who worked together on Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels, Snatch, and Revolver, are set to reunite for a remake of the 2004 French film Le Convoyeur. The original film followed a disturbed man who takes a job at an armored truck company and begins keeping tabs on all of his coworkers.

Despite what its title implies, The Gentlemen is not afraid to get a little dirty. The poster for the Guy Ritchie crime comedy seems to suggest some sort of riff on Kingsman or even the director’s sleek 2015 spy thriller The Man from U.N.C.L.E. But with the release of its first trailer, The Gentlemen may in fact be a bit of an ironic title.
Originally named Toff Guys, The Gentlemen is more of a throwback to Ritchie’s grimy crime capers like Snatch and Lock, Stock, and Two Smoking Barrels. Matthew McConaughey leads an all-star cast in The Gentlemen as a notorious American drug lord who finds himself embroiled in a London territory war. Watch The Gentlemen trailer below.

Before Aladdin was released theaters earlier this year to the tune of $1 billion worldwide, it seemed odd to pair director Guy Ritchie with the remake of the Middle Eastern-set Disney animated classic. But once the star Mena Massoud started crooning the lines to “One Jump Ahead,” it all immediately became clear. The stylish filmmaker, best known for his rapid-fire dialogue and editing combined with artful slow and fast-motion, put all of his techniques on display in the sequence for “One Jump Ahead,” which follows the titular street rat as he and an undercover Princess Jasmine (Naomi Scott) evade capture through the streets of Agrabah.
/Film has an exclusive Aladdin clip showcasing the techniques in this sequence, ahead of the film’s upcoming Digital and Blu-ray release. Watch the Aladdin clip below.

Guy Ritchie gave new life to Sherlock Holmes with two films starring Robert Downey Jr. and Jude Law as the mystery solving duo of Sherlock Holmes and Dr. John H. Watson. But the third installment will be in the hands of someone else.
Rocketman director Dexter Fletcher has been hired to helm Sherlock Holmes 3, which is slated for release in December 2021, 10 years after Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows hit theaters. Read More »
Right now, it doesn’t seem like many Disney fans are all that excited about the arrival of the studio’s remake of their 1992 animated classic Aladdin. The marketing certainly isn’t doing the movie any favors, whether it’s because of the seemingly wooden performance from Mena Massoud as the titular street urchin or the boring choreography for what should be one of the most lively parts of the movie. However, if the early buzz is any indicator, this movie is much better than the trailers make it seem.

The reaction to Disney’s upcoming live-action Aladdin has been a bit…muted. The footage revealed is a bit lacking, and fans of the original don’t quite know what to make of Will Smith‘s take on the Genie. We won’t know how the film actually is until it’s release, but let’s just say the enthusiasm for this live-action Disney remake is a lot lower than previous releases. But maybe this Aladdin special look will do the trick. The video below goes behind-the-scenes of the Guy Ritchie-directed adaptation, showcasing all the work that went into creating the film’s whole new world.

It’s been almost a decade since we’ve seen Robert Downey Jr.’s Sherlock Holmes and Jude Law’s John Watson share the big screen in 2011’s Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows, but Warner Bros. is still interested in bringing them back to complete the trilogy. They’ve set a new release date for Sherlock Holmes 3 in 2021, and now a new report says that the pair could be leaving London for the sequel and heading to the American Old West.

In Disney’s upcoming remake of The Lion King, director Jon Favreau is bringing back James Earl Jones to reprise his role as Mufasa from the animated original. But no such luck for Gilbert Gottfried, who memorably voiced Jafar’s pet parrot in Disney’s 1993 animated classic Aladdin.
Director Guy Ritchie has hired actor Alan Tudyk to take over the role in the studio’s upcoming live-action remake. Tudyk has become something of a lucky charm for Disney after appearing in several of their recent hits, so we really should have seen this coming.

Disney has been slowly rolling out the teasers for Aladdin, all of which have been met with, let’s say, mixed reactions. The first teaser trailer in October featured plenty of the original 1992 animated film’s iconography, but barely featured the titular character played by Mena Massoud, much less the film’s highest-billed actor, Will Smith. But then a special TV spot revealed our first look at Smith as the giant, blue genie, and that wasn’t quite well-received either.
Now, Disney has finally released the first official Aladdin trailer in all its wondrous glory. Watch the first full Aladdin trailer below.
