The Gentlemen DVD, Blu-ray, digital, rental and 4K Ultra HD release date UK

Guy Ritchie returns to the Cockney gangster genre in The Gentlemen, and with the recent arrival on the big screen, the DVD, Blu-ray, digital, rental and 4K UK release date (details below) won’t be too far behind it. Reviews have been mixed for the crime comedy, so it clearly isn’t a return to his best work, but fans of the genre will undoubtedly be keen to check is out.

The British director shot to fame with the success of Lock, Stock And Two Smoking Barrels back in 1998, which he followed up with Snatch in 2000. While Ritchie’s debut was lauded with praise from film critics, Snatch has more mixed reviews, similar to The Gentlemen, so it’ll be a surprise if the critical response to the film changes much in terms of its success.

There’s a massive ensemble cast in the film, which will add to the impact of the DVD, Blu-ray and digital release with big names like Matthew McConaughey, Colin Farrell and Hugh Grant in the lead roles. They’re joined by Charlie Hunnam, who played Arthur in Ritchie’s King Arthur: Legend Of The Sword, Eddie Marsden (Hobbs & Shaw) and Michelle Dougherty (AKA Lady Mary Crawley from the Downton Abbey film).

The plot sees American pot magnate Mickey Pearson (McConaughey) about to hand in his chips for his empire, but with such a huge business on the table the pack is encircled by the rest of London’s criminal underworld. With everyone scheming for control, no holds are barred in the scramble to be the new marijuana king of the city.

Age rating and parents guide

The Gentlemen has been given an age rating in the UK of 18 by the British Board of Film Classification, which is equivalent to an R rating in the US. The trailer doesn’t make it look all that bad, but in terms of a parents guide you’re definitely looking at the grown-up kids side of the spectrum.

The notes from the BBFC for parents only include very strong language, but you can add to that a lot of heavy violence, sex references, casual racism and drugs.

The Gentlemen had a UK release date in cinemas on Wednesday 1st January 2020, which is a big day for cinema goers, but then there was some strong competition to face. The only major film out on the same weekend was Nazi satire Jojo Rabbit, but there were some strong older releases like Star Wars The Rise Of Skywalker, Spies In Disguise and Knives Out still dominating the box office.

Trailer

The trailer is pretty much as you’d expect for a cockney crime caper, and it leaves a good level of “how the Phu-uk is this going to end up”. Matty C is an interesting selection as the main man and he drops some cool lines. It’s a similar story for Huey G-dog, which sets things up well for the DVD, Blu-ray and digital release.
