GAMBIT International Trailer Stars Colin Firth, Cameron Diaz, Alan Rickman And Stanley Tucci
Watch the trailer for GAMBIT starring Oscar winner Colin Firth (THE KING’S SPEECH), Cameron Diaz (THE GREEN HORNET), Alan Rickman (HARRY POTTER series), Golden Globe winner Stanley Tucci (JULIE & JULIA) and Tom Courtenay (THE GOLDEN COMPASS). The screenplay is by Joel Coen & Ethan Coen (TRUE GRIT, NO COUNTRY FOR OLD MEN, RAISING ARIZONA). As Tucci says in this first preview of GAMBIT, it looks “bloody marvelous!”
The director of THE LAST STATION, Michael Hoffman, brings to the screen the remake of the 1966 crime-caper which starred Michael Caine and Shirley MacLaine. Should the original turn up on TCM try to catch. It was nominated for 3 Academy Awards and is absolutely delightful.
In this latest version, the story centers on British art curator Harry Deane (Firth) who devises a finely-crafted scheme to con England’s richest man and avid art collector, Lionel Shabandar, (Rickman) into purchasing a fake Monet painting. In order to bait his buyer, he recruits a Texas rodeo queen (Diaz) to cross the pond and pose as a woman whose grandfather liberated the painting at the end of WWII.
GAMBIT will be released in the U.S. in 2013. In UK cinemas, November 21
