Extreme cops clash with extreme bank robbers in the final Den of Thieves trailer, which sees Gerard Butler going ham on yet another bad batch of criminals.
Christian Gudegast is the screenwriter behind 2003’s A Man Apart with Vin Diesel and 2016’s London Has Fallen with Butler. Den of Thieves marks his directorial debut.
The film, which Gudegast wrote with Prison Break scribe Paul Scheuring, sees Butler as Los Angeles cop Nick Flanagan, who goes balls-to-the-wall in trying to stop a group of equally excessive thieves from robbing a seemingly un-robbable bank. But the story expands beyond the heist itself.
Pablo Schreiber (American Gods, Orange Is the New Black) plays the leader of this pack of criminals, which also includes O’Shea Jackson Jr. (Straight Outta Compton) and rapper 50 Cent. The Den of Thieves trailer sees their macho, ego-wagging shenanigans as both the cops and robbers try to psyche each other out before they throw down in the showdown.
Den of Thieves will bust into theaters on Jan. 19, 2018. Watch the trailer above.
