Lionsgate has premiered the UK trailer for Dom Hemingway, the Richard Shepard dark mob comedy that has Jude Law playing a heterosexual male womanizer, a man just released from a long stint in prison.
Law is returning to the spotlight for the crude and seemingly hilarious safe cracker who is going to get the hush money he’s owed. Dom Hemingway, a character-driven crime dramedy written and directed by Shepard, came away from TIFF with mixed reviews, but the results coming out off festival praised Law’s performance. Well, if he’s giving a charming lead performance as he seems to be here, it’s worth watching.
Okay, there are plenty of great jokes that aren’t in here including all the ones that involve the vulgar language.
The film also starring Richard E. Grant, Emilia Clarke and Demian Bichir is set to open on November 15th this year in the U.K. and April 4th, 2014 in the U.S.
Watch the trailer along with new images below.
Jude Law plays Dom Hemingway, a larger-than-life safe cracker with a loose fuse who is funny, profane, and dangerous. After twelve years in prison, he sets off with his partner in crime Dickie (Richard E. Grant) looking to collect what he’s owed for keeping his mouth shut and protecting his boss Mr. Fontaine (Demián Bichir). After a near death experience, Dom tries to re-connect with his estranged daughter (Emilia Clarke), but is soon drawn back into the only world he knows, looking to settle the ultimate debt.
