And if you are a fan of British cult classics like Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels, Snatch, and RocknRolla, this one is definitely for you.

Made up of an all-star cast, including the likes of Matthew McConaughey, Hugh Grant, and Charlie Hunnam, the movie follows a violent war that erupts between rival gangs.

According to the synopsis, it tells the story of "American expat Mickey Pearson (McConaughey) who built a highly profitable marijuana empire in London.

"When word gets out that he's looking to cash out of the business forever it triggers plots, schemes, bribery and blackmail in an attempt to steal his domain out from under him."

And by the looks of the trailer, Ritchie is back to his best with a gritty comedy that even has Hugh Grant putting on a cockney accent to rival that of Dick Van Dyke.

Speaking to Entertainment Weekly about the new release, Ritchie said he wanted to bring both sides of the Atlantic together.

He said: "What I wanted to do was to bring subcultures together from both sides of the Atlantic.

"An American comes to England to be clever and get a job in the conventional fashion, but then takes his smarts through his connections at Oxford and realizes there's more money to be made in the marijuana game, and capitalizes on the entrepreneurial New World spirit with the comfortable and exciting juxtaposition of British aristocracy.

"So what I wanted was British aristocracy, New World American drive, and all of the fun to be had with bringing those two worlds together. Marijuana's kind of fun, but nevertheless serious and there's money involved."

And while in recent years he's moved away from gangster flicks - only this year he teamed up with Will Smith for a live-action version of Disney classic Aladdin - Ritchie said he was glad to be back.

"It does feel like i'm on familiar territory here," he added. "I loved making Aladdin, but this is obviously a very different world. We did them both in the same year. It was great to do both and sort of oscillate to the other polarity. That, I think we have done."

The Gentlemen will hit cinemas in the UK from 1 January 2020.
