FIRST LOOK: The Gentlemen

Rated R.

Digging the music chosen for the trailer for this drug empire under takeover film. Love the late 60s – 70s Vietnam-era classic rock.

THE GENTLEMEN follows American expat Mickey Pearson (Matthew McConaughey) who built a highly profitable marijuana empire in London. 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.

Random trailer thoughts on #TheGentlement:

  • Cool character accents (particularly thick on the dialogue, “heroes and zeroes”)
  • Lots of drugs on display (marijuana in particular) — chronic fans will rejoice
  • The trailer seems a bit confusing as to if they are going for an action-thriller(?) or maybe it’s a drama (listed on Rotten Tomatoes as an Action-Adventure, Comedy)
  • Signature Matthew M!

Directed by Guy Ritchie. For those curious, yes, the same Guy Ritchie that was once married to Madonna. What are some of his other films? The Sherlock Holmes (2009) movie and sequel starring Robert Downey Jr, the live action Aladdin and others, none of which I’ve seen yet. Just when you think you’ve seen a bunch of movies then you come across a director like this, of some notoriety, and yes I haven’t seen even one of his films yet. That will change later this month.

The Gentlemen opens wide in theaters January 24, 2020
