Little by little, the Michael Hoffman comedy remake Gambit has revealed itself through some generous footage. Whether it’s the few seconds that released last September, or the first and second trailers that appeared shortly thereafter, fans are getting plenty of exclusive looks at the film. Adding to the list is the first two clips, one courtesy of Digital Spy.
Based on a script by the Coen brothers, Gambit follows a businessman (Colin Firth) who enlists the help of a rowdy cowgirl (Cameron Diaz) to help him con his billionaire, art collecting boss (Alan Rickman). The trailer promises plenty of physical gags, leaving one wondering if the dialogue delivers equally as well. Luckily, the first scene offers plenty of talk, as well as a sampling of some of Firth’s bumbling, Peter Sellers-esque antic, while the latter sees Firth’s unlucky bar encounter before meeting Diaz. See both below:
Gambit - which also stars Stanley Tucci, Tom Courtenay and Cloris Leachman - will open in UK cinemas on Nov. 21st. Hopefully a US release date isn’t far off.
What do you think of the new clip? Does it make you want to see Gambit more?
