We may be closing in on the end of a decade, but films like The Gentlemen make us excited for what the next ten years will hold. The latest flick from director Guy Ritchie (who debuted with films like Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels and Snatch and most recently directed the live-action version of Disney's Aladdin) finds some of your favorite actors—including Matthew McConaughey, Succession star Jeremy Strong, Colin Farrell, and more—locking horns in a wild ride of an action-comedy about a guy who's trying to get out of the marijuana empire he built.
In the exclusive clip we are sharing today, we get to see McConaughey's Mickey Pearson introducing a budding hopeful to his product, which he is calling "the new gold rush." With two actors like McConaughey and Strong, it already feels awesome; when they are both on 10, it turns into a magnificent scene (and set-up). Watch the full clip and trailer up above, and check out the synopsis for The Gentlemen below.
From writer/director Guy Ritchie comes THE GENTLEMEN, a star-studded sophisticated action comedy. 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 (featuring an all-star ensemble cast including Charlie Hunnam, Henry Golding, Michelle Dockery, Jeremy Strong, Eddie Marsan, Colin Farrell, and Hugh Grant).
