the gentlemen clip

When you’re a cannabis baron who wants to get out of the game, you will inevitably have gangster upstarts sniffing around your territory.

The Gentlemen Trailer

Since we’re almost to the end of 2019, it’s time to start looking forward to the movies of 2020. Normally, January is a dumping ground for some pretty bad movies, but one possible bright spot appears to be director Guy Ritchie‘s return to shady crime in London

The Gentlemen stars Matthew McConaughey as Mickey Pearson, the overseer of a massive marijuana empire in London. But when word that he might be dropping out of the business gets around, he’s challenged by a young up-and-comer (Henry Golding), and soon everyone seems to be looking to fill the void that might get left behind. Watch a new The Gentlemen trailer below to get a look at some new footage. Read More »

the gentlemen trailer

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 GuysThe 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.

Brigands of Rattlecreek

Years before writer S. Craig Zahler made his directorial debut with his ultra-violent western Bone Tomahawk, he sold a screenplay for a different ultra-violent western called The Brigands of Rattleborge, which had Oldboy director Park Chan-wook lined up to direct way back in 2012.

Despite the script being on The Black List in 2006, the project was stuck in development hell for years, but now Amazon has picked it up with a slightly-altered name: The Brigands of Rattlecreek. Park is back in the director’s chair, and Oscar winner Matthew McConaughey is being eyed for one of the lead roles. Learn more below. Read More »

serenity trailer new
Serenity is probably not the movie audiences are expecting. Steven Knight’s third feature as a director is a bonkers thriller, both old-fashioned and modern, that defies expectations. Nobody could ever call this movie predictable. Knight says he’s not a fan of the constraints of any given genre, and it shows in Serenity, a movie not tied down to the rules of a thriller. It’s not an easy film to put in a box or even say much about without spoiling anything.

It’s the first feature Knight has directed since Locke, and although that drama came out six years ago, it’s so memorable that it doesn’t feel like it’s been that long since the creator of Peaky Blinders and Taboo directed a movie. Recently, he told us about the challenges of his latest film, why he doesn’t like labeling movies by genre, the differences between writing for himself or a studio, and more.

serenity ending

Right from the beginning, there is something off about Serenity. The sultry neo-noir thriller starring Matthew McConaughey and Anne Hathaway seems to take place on a fictional fishing island that boasts a New England name but a tropical climate, while half the residents speak with a vague Southern twang. McConaughey’s character, Baker Dill, receives strange visions and omens — some of them seemingly supernatural in nature. And there’s the matter of Jeremy Strong‘s bespectacled businessman chasing after Baker Dill with urgent news about…something.

These all lay the grounds for a twist of sorts, or a revelation that some greater conspiracy is at work. But the Serenity ending has a twist that is so out of left field, it feels like you have fallen into some drug-fueled fever dream.

Major spoilers for Serenity follow, so do not read on if you want to see the movie…although these spoilers may convince you to actually see this movie.
