Exclusive: The Bank Job Pics

The Stath breaks a safe...

Us Brits like nothing more than a good old crime caper - except, perhaps, for a nice plate of jellied eels and a pint of Spitfire – so thank the lord blimey up above for The Bank Job.

Not only does it star, Jason Statham, our 55th Sexiest Movie Star… ever, but it’s also written by Porridge scribes Dick Clement and Ian Le Frenais, it’s got a star-studded line-up of some of Blighty’s recognisable faces and tells the true-life story of an unsolved big-money robbery.

Could this be the most British film ever made? Chuck in a pearly king and we’ll bet a fiver on it.

The Bank Job is set in 1971, when thieves tunnelled into the vault of a bank in London's Baker Street and looted safe deposit boxes of cash and jewellery worth over three million pounds. Not one penny was ever recovered and nobody was ever arrested and the story disappeared from headline following a governmental notice gagging the press.

The Bank Job is out at the end of February and to get you in the mood for The Stath-led blag, we’ve got five exclusive pics for your perusal. Go on, take your time. It’s a one-way mirror, so you’re perfectly safe.

If statham is in it,it will be average at best,and a let down..The guy has potential but he gets the wrong scripts and/or wrong director....Crank was his best flick imo...War was a major let down(least the big fight with LI).
I hope this is a decent movie,hes one of those actors I want to like,but just can't at times....
 
^ Are you kidding me? You consider Lock Stock and Two Smoking Barrels and Snatch average at best?

Never seen them,probably never will. Was he in the main role or a side-role.
He was decent in the Italian Job,but he was in a secondary role. I kindof like Statham,but to me most of his films are like a bad sex partner,they get ya to that point of no return,and then they just get up and leave ya hanging,and all ur left to do is *********e :)
 
yikes...i dont think any of his movies have done that to me.....
 
Looks kinda...meh. Cool trailer music though. T-Rex I believe...
 
Cool! Very 70's poster. I like.
 
I thought I saw a documentary on what this is based , I could be confusing with something else . It looks good though . So did WAR but that is a different story.
 
Just saw the newest traielr, and this looks quite okay actually, but maybe it's because they used such awesome music.

watch lock stock and snatch, 2 amazing films and 2 of my personal fav films of all time
 
thats what I love most about them, I can watch them over and over and never get bored for me thats how a film should be in my opinion
I found lock stock... the tv series on dvd the other day, one of the best big to small screen adaptations ever, soem episodes arn't so good, but there are some cracking ones including tim from the office as a crazy dutch wheeler dealer
