Matthew McConaughey Slings Weed, Shoots People In The Face In The Bonkers Trailer For ‘The Gentlemen’
While Matthew McConaughey will always remain a Bro King and one of the internet’s favorite sons, the cold hard truth is that ever since The McConaissance back in 2014, the Academy Award-winning actor hasn’t appeared in any projects that are even remotely as good as his murderer’s row of hits when he starred in Dallas Buyers Club, The Wolf of Wall Street, True Detective, and Interstellar back-to-back-to-back-to-back.
In the years since his epic career comeback, McConaughey has alternated between ill-received indies and box office bomb blockbusters such as The Sea of Trees, Free State of Jones, Gold, The Dark Tower, White Boy Rick, and Serenity.
But luckily for all of us — as McConaughey still remains one of the most interesting movie stars in the industry — it appears the sun-soaked University of Texas professor has landed another hit, as he’s set to appear in Guy Ritchie’s next feature film The Gentleman.
The Gentleman will see Ritchie — who most recently directed King Arthur: Legend of the Sword and Aladdin — return to his roots, as the acclaimed English director made a name for himself with his slick and stylish gangster flicks in the late 90s and early 2000s.
Callin’ it now, this is going to be the best Matthew McConaughey film in years, as director Guy Ritchie — who has helmed beloved films such as Snatch and Sherlock Holmes — is a master of his craft when it comes to gangster crime filmmaking.
In addition to the Academy Award-winning McConaughey, The Gentleman also stars Charlie Hunnam, Colin Farrell, Hugh Grant, Henry Golding, and Michelle Dockery. It will be released in theaters in the United States on Friday, January 24, 2020.
