2015 The Hatton Garden Heist, London intrigued a nation when a group of pensioners was able to rob 200 million. Whilst we were astonished at how these old boys pulled off the job, we quickly learned they weren’t to this ‘job’. Next month the third film to cover the heist will be released, King Of Thieves starring Sir Michael Caine.
Today Studiocanal has released a second but full UK Trailer or should I say the red band “full f***ing trailer”! Expect some F-bombs dropping, as for how many bloody doors Sir Michael will blow up, you might have to go see the film!
This one is more comedy than straight up crime drama. Despite the humour it still has a dark tone to it. Out of the three films about Hatton Garden, this one has the biggest budget so we hope it will deliver the goods?
A caper film about the unlikely gang of retirees that pulled off the daring Hatton Garden jewellery heist of 2015.
The film tells the story of the epic multi-million-pound robbery initially believed to be undertaken by a gang of super-thieves. The actual perpetrators were a group of tough-guy retired criminals in their late 60s and 70s — with all kinds of physical maladies — who were mostly unoccupied and bored, until they consulted a bunch of how-to books and figured out a way to pull off one last hurrah over a long weekend in April 2015.
Entering the Hatton Garden Safe Deposit Company property via a lift shaft, they drilled through the 50cm thick vault walls with heavy machinery and escaped with a haul estimated to be worth around £200 million.
King Of Thieves will be released in the UK and Irish cinema from 14th September. Co-starring Tom Courtenay, Ray Winstone, Jim Broadbent, Charlie Cox, Paul Whitehouse and Michael Gambon. The Theory Of Everything director James Marsh directs.
