Coming to cinemas across the UK this February, Den Of Thieves will see an incredible roster of A-listers come together in a gritty thriller that follows the journey of a notorious and elite crew of bank robbers. Planning to take on the Federal Reserve Bank of downtown Los Angeles, they’ll have to go up against the State’s most feared police unit if they’re to be a success, but who’ll come out of the confrontations with their desired goal remains to be seen.
This week, a brilliant trailer offering a first look at the movie – which stars Gerard Butler, Pablo Schreiber, O’Shea Jackson Jr. and Curtis ’50 Cent’ Jackson – has been revealed, which you can watch below:
Christian Gudegast directs Den Of Thieves, with the film’s screenplay co-written by Christian Gudegast and Paul Scheuring. Production got underway just under a year ago on January 30, 2017 and so the wait for the film for those who have been following it since its conception may feel like quite a long one!
Exactly whether or not Den Of Thieves can be something special and unique within the genre remains to be seen. From the teasers we’ve been treated to so far, there’s nothing that’s really jumped out at us and said it’ll be a memorable piece of incredible cinema, but that doesn’t mean it won’t be an action-packed, compelling and infectious ride. Lots of people are looking for mindless chaos, which seems to be on offer here, but within an industry that’s so packed full of films such as this one, something special will have to be done if repeat viewings are to come in.
Still, the idea that the group here will be trying to rob from the only bank in America that’s never been robbed from is one that should pique a lot of interest.
Den Of Thieves is released in cinemas nationwide on February 2.
