The three first international posters from the upcoming heist-comedy Gambit have been released in the past days, thanks to Orange Film News! They’re character posters for Colin Firth’s Harry Deane, Alan Rickman’s Lionel Shabandar and Cameron Diaz’s PJ Puznowski. Along with the posters came the official synopsis and the date for the UK release – November 21. The synopsis can be read below.
Private art curator Harry Deane (Colin Firth) devises a finely-crafted scheme to con England’s richest man and avid art collector, Lionel Shabandar, (Alan Rickman) into purchasing a fake Monet painting. In order to bait his buyer, he recruits a Texas rodeo queen (Cameron Diaz) to cross the pond and pose as a woman whose grandfather liberated the painting at the end of WWII. BAFTA award winner Sir Tom Courtenay, Golden Globe winner Stanley Tucci and Academy Award winner and veteran comedienne Cloris Leachman round out the cast.
A US release date is yet to be announced. Stay tuned for the first trailer which is expected to hit the web shortly!
