Hard to not give Michael Caine a round of applause. The man is still acting regularly in lead roles, practically every year having a film come out. Admittedly, they aren’t all great but his new film The King of Thieves feels like a slight throwback to films of his past. Based on the true story of the 2015 London Hatton Garden Vault robbery, pulled off by a group of senior citizens, the film looks to capture that same sense of disbelief.
Considered the most daring heist in British criminal history, it looks to translate to an entertaining film although of course the story has been modified a little, now being about a crew of retired crooks looking to pull off a major heist in London’s jewelry district. Still, the teaser trailer offers some hope it will pull it off. Check it out below:
The King of Thieves is set to hit theaters in the UK on September 14th with further international release dates being announced soon.
