I see many scenes of people holding gun on each other while delivering long speeches.
Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels & Snatch are 2 of my favorite movies so I'm really happy to see Ritchie back to directing british crime capers. I hope he knocks this one outta the park.
Ritchie and Marn Davies wrote the script, which explores the collision between European “old money” and the modern marijuana industry. It follows a British drug lord attempting to cash in on his highly profitable empire by selling it off to a dynasty of Oklahoma billionaires. Grant has been tapped to play a British tabloid reporter.

STX Punches For Guy Ritchie Crime-Comedy ‘Bush’ In Splashy $7M Deal, EFM 2019’s Biggest
In the biggest deal to emerge from the 2019 EFM, STX has finalized a deal for U.S. rights to Guy Ritchie's Miramax pic Bush — formerly known as Toff Guys — for around $7M. Multiple suitors were in the mix for the star-studded crime-comedy, whose cast includes Matthew McConaughey, Hugh Grant, Colin Farrell, Charlie Hunnam, Henry Golding and Michelle Dockery. The deal was in the works in Berlin and has just been completed.
When I clicked on this, I seriously thought Ritchie was making a biopic about the English band Bush. Anyway, sounds like it could be fun.
Good... Ritchie only excels in his crime world films. They're not the best films, but they're fun and unique for that type/style of genre.
Never give him cgi or fantasy ever again.
I thought Deadline Hollywood will come up with a better headline. I was thinking something along the lines of 'STX grabs Ritchie's Bush'
Hopefully this will be closer to Snatch and Lock Stock than RockNRolla. The first two had a great comedic tone that was consistent throughout, especially Snatch. RockNRolla tried to be serious and dramatic at certain points and ultimately just came off dull at times. And some of the characters just felt like diet versions of characters in his other movies; Wilkinson's crime boss just felt like Brick Top-lite. Still, I would take any of those three movies over the rest of Ritchie's output; I enjoyed the first Sherlock Holmes but I wouldn't call it a good movie. The second one is just a waste of time. I still haven't seen his King Arthur movie but from what I understand, I'm REALLY not missing anything. And Revolver was pretentious trash, clearly made by a man who didn't understand any of the mature themes he was trying to convey.
Hopefully this is a return to form.
Guy Ritchie’s ‘Toff Guys’ Gets New Title, Chadwick Boseman In ’21 Bridges’, ‘Bad Moms’ Moms’ & More: STX At CinemaCon
A huge delight was the trailer for Guy Ritche’s movie The Gentlemen. The story’s about a very British drug lord who tries to sell off his highly profitable empire to a dynasty of Oklahoma billionaires. In the trailer, Hugh Grant is seen doing his best 70s era Michael Caine (with a dash of Ray Winstone). Grant’s Fletcher, who appears to be recounting the story, says, “I can’t be specific about the heroes and zeroes, but the protagonist is a hungry animal and the antagonist explodes on the scene like a millennial f***ing fireworks.”
It’s classic kinetic Ritchie with bullets, a steely, fierce Matthew McConaughey in a kingpin role we haven’t seen before (“when the lion is hungry, he needs to eat!” screams the Oscar winner), a bespectacled Charlie Hunnam, Colin Farrell in a working class (what looks to be the Brad Pitt Snatch like part, and rocky voiced bully Hugh Grant — everyone playing wonderfully against type. Michelle Dockery is the icy femme. Falling bodies out of windows, fast camera movies. After Ritchie’s ambitious King Arthur Legend of the Sword, it’s clear Ritchie is back.
Henry Golding is blowing up, boy.
Kind of funny he’s third billing yet only the back of his head is in the released stills.
Goddamn, this is the Ritchie I've wanted to see. I miss it.
I went to an advanced screening last night with very little knowledge of the movie, and no real expectations. I was pleasantly surprised. It was a fun movie and I really enjoyed Colin Farrell and Hugh Grants performances. It really was a great ensemble of a cast.
I also have a new obsession... Charlie Hunnam. Damn!
Don't ever watch Crimson Peak. It will ruin your opinion of him, lol.
I had a lot of fun with this movie. Fast paced, fast talking, quick witted, violent and humorous, pretty much what we've come to expect from Guy Ritchie. The way the film is structured is kind of like an unfolding mystery with Hugh Grant as an unreliable narrator, which is probably the most surprising and enjoyable aspect of the film. Hugh Grant steals the show and is absolutely hilarious. The rest of the cast does a fine job, although Matthew McConaughey kinda gets lost in the shuffle considering this is supposed to be his film. But even with that being said, can't really complain because it's a Guy Ritchie film and if you've seen one Guy Ritchie movie, you've kinda seen them all. Except for Aladdin. That was different
Went and seen it again last night almost finnier with a second viewing.
(little side not only this time did I notice Franz Drameh who played Jax in Legends of Tomorrow plays a small role as one of the boxers)
