Michael Caine, still an acting workhorse at 85, headlines King of Thieves, the true story of a group of retired crooks who pulled off a jewelry raid at London’s diamond district. Caine plays Brian Reader, the mastermind behind the operation, with Ray Winstone, Charlie Cox (Daredevil) and Jim Broadbent rounding out the ensemble. James Marsh, best known for his work in The Theory of Everything, directed the project.
Though the obvious situation was a serious one, the trailer suggests that King of Thieves will have its ample share of laughs, and much of the humor comes from Caine’s obvious displeasure over his colleague’s lack of discretion.
King of Thieves hits theaters, On Demand, and Digital HD on January 25. Check out the trailer and tell us what you think!
