STXfilms has released a new trailer for The Gentlemen, Guy Ritchie’s return to classic action comedy, ahead of its January 24 bow.
Matthew McConaughey stars as American expat Mickey Pearson, who built a highly profitable marijuana empire in London.

British writer-director Ritchie’s The Gentlemen marks his return to the genre following Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels (1998), Snatch (2000) and Rocknrolla (2008). The all-star ensemble cast includes Charlie Hunnam, Henry Golding, Michelle Dockery, Jeremy Strong, Eddie Marsan, Colin Farrell, and Hugh Grant.
Ritchie directed The Gentlemen off of his own screenplay, which is based on a story credited to Ritchie, Ivan Atkinson & Marn Davies. Ritchie produced the film with Ivan Atkinson and Bill Block.
