While we’re still not sure when it will land in the United States, Michael Hoffman‘s Gambit remake is arriving across the pond in November and now we’ve got the the first full-length trailer. Coming off a bit of footage yesterday, this full trailer reveals much more of the Coens-scripted story, which sees businessman Colin Firth and cowgirl Cameron Diaz team up for a painting con on Alan Rickman. With some fun slapstick, building scaling trickery and a mountain lion, this looks to be a good time. I can see why CBS Films moved it from its fall slate though, as this one certainly doesn’t look like an awards contender, but hopefully it will land early next year. Check it out below for the film also starring Stanley Tucci, Tom Courtenay and Cloris Leachman.
Gambit opens on November 21st in the UK and sometime in 2013 in the US.
