Gambit 2012 Official Trailer

Earlier we posted some footage from the trailer for the upcoming Gambit remake of the 1966 comedy and today we have the full international trailer. The film follows Harry Dean (Colin Firth) whose revenge plan to his boss is missing one final component: the participation of a beautiful woman to act as his gambit. Dean then meets Pj Puznowski (Cameron Diaz), someone who appears to be the perfect candidate to be his gambit. However, Dean himself becomes enraptured with her, causing his plan to take a series of wrong turns.

Gambit, written by Joel and Ethan Coen, directed by Michael Hoffman (Restoration, A Midsummer Night’s Dream), also stars Alan Rickman, Tom Courtenay, Stanley Tucci, Cloris Leachman, Anna Skellern, and Togo Igawa. Gambit premieres in U.K. on November 21st, 2012 and a U.S. release date is still to be decided.

Though Colin Firth usually has the Midas touch when it comes to picking projects, I'm not sure that applies to Gambit, which looks like a wacky mashup of heist movie elements. He stars as Harry Deane, an employee who's grown tired of his filthy-rich boss (played by Alan Rickman), so he schemes against him, attempting to fool him into buying a fake Monet. For this he needs the help of rodeo queen Pj Puznowski (Cameron Diaz) to get his hands on the painting, and predictably, everything seems to go wrong, especially since Pj is looking out for herself (a girl's gotta keep herself in sparkly Western wear, after all). I can't say that Gambit looks that great from the trailer - Cameron Diaz's Southern accent had me instantly cringing - but that's not to say it doesn't look fun. Firth walks around in his underwear while Rickman swans around
Storyline-An art curator decides to seek revenge on his abusive boss by conning him into buying a fake Monet, but his plan requires the help of an eccentric and unpredictable Texas rodeo queen.
