King of Thieves teaser trailer: Michael Caine rounds up the gang for one last job
Back in 2015 four experienced thieves stole what was believed to be up to £200 million from the Hatton Garden Safe Deposit Company, before being caught and sentenced a year later. King of Thieves looks back on the job, following on from the terrible The Hatton Garden Job which beat it to the punch last year. The cast on this version is a pretty heavy upgrade and it looks like a much slicker production all round. You can watch the teaser trailer for King of Thieves above right now.
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.
James Marsh (The Theory of Everything, Man on Wire) directs, with the cast including Michael Caine, Tom Courtenay, Ray Winstone, Jim Broadbent, Charlie Cox, Paul Whitehouse, Michael Gambon and. Francesca Annis.
King of Thieves comes to UK cinemas on September 14th 2018.
