An All-Star Cast and Guy Ritchie Leads the Way for Action Film THE GENTLEMEN

Ready your wits when “The Gentlemen” starts playing their games on January 29, 2020 in Philippine cinemas. "The Gentlemen" promises to be a rollicking action-packed caper, where everyone seems to be friends and fiends battling for the highest seat of power. From writer-director Guy Ritchie, "The Gentlemen" is a star-studded, sophisticated action comedy that follows American expat Mickey Pearson (Matthew McConaughey), who has built a highly profitable marijuana empire in London. When word gets out that he’s looking to cash out of the business, a host of colorful, if entirely illegitimate figures scheme, bribe and blackmail their way to try and steal Mickey’s domain out from under him. Outside from Matthew McConaughey, the cast includes Charlie Hunnam, Henry Golding, Michelle Dockery, Jeremy Strong, Colin Farrell, and Hugh Grant.

Guy Ritchie came up with the idea for the film almost a decade ago. He explains the film’s origins as a work entitled Toff Guys – a reference to the British slang for someone from an aristocratic background, and who exudes an air of superiority – and what drew him to its ideas and themes. “It all spoke to my interest in exploring the meeting of disparate polarities in the English and American class systems. The characters have reached an age where they are magnetically drawn to the finer things in life and have become gentrified in their rather ungentrified business. They are, at their core, hard-boiled and have worked their way up the urban ladder. Now, they’re caught between two worlds, one of which is aspirational. And the things they enjoy are now out of sync with the business they’re in.”
"The Gentlemen" opens January 29 in PH cinemas from Captive Cinema.
