Sony Pictures Home Entertainment‘s quest to ‘upgrade’ many of their back catalogue continues. They announce Guy Ritchie‘s awe-inspiring directorial masterpiece, Snatch is to get a 4K Upgrade release in May.
The film is an edgy and hilarious film about a diamond heist gone wrong, a colourful Irish gypsy-turned-prizefighter…and a very temperamental dog.
Featuring an all star cast including Brad Pitt (Once Upon A Time… In Hollywood, World War Z), Benicio Del Toro (Sicario, Traffic), Vinnie Jones (X-Men: The Last Stand, Bite), Jason Statham (The Expendables, Parker) and Stephen Graham (The Irishman, TV’s “Boardwalk Empire”). Lennie James (The Walking Dead), Jason Flemyng (Lock, Stock And Two Smoking Barrels) and Dennis Farina (Get Shorty).
The film follows two novice unlicensed boxing promoters, Turkish (Jason Statham) and Tommy (Stephen Graham), as they get roped into a rigged bare-knuckle fight with local kingpin/villain and fellow boxing promoter Brick Top (Alan Ford).
“You should never underestimate the predictability of stupidity” – Bulletooth
In the heart of gangland, all goes wrong when wild-card Irish gypsy boxer One Punch Mickey O’Neil (Brad Pitt) starts playing by his own rules, and the duo find themselves heading for a whole lot of trouble. Meanwhile, Franky Four Fingers (Benicio Del Toro) and his stolen 86-carat diamond have gone missing in London. Head honcho Avi (Dennis Farina) hires local legend Bullet Tooth Tony (Vinnie Jones) to find them, launching everyone into a spiral of double-crossing vendettas and events, most of them illegal.
