There are few directors in the world today who are as unique as Guy Ritchie. His films, everything from Lock Stock and Two Smoking Barrells to Snatch, have all had a quality that is all their own, or at least a quality that is limited to his body of work. Well, his early body of work at least. For fans of Ritchie’s extasy-infused, high-octain beginnings have seen his talent spend on working the baby factory with his wife Madonna, as well as a throw-away film called Swept Away in 2002. To say the least, he has yet to really recover from the damage of the Madonna-headlined film.

That is, until now. In his upcoming film RocknRolla, Ritchie takes badass incarnate Gerard Butler and throws him into a whirlwind story about the intersection of London’s seedy underbelly and a Russian mobster’s shady land deal, all somehow interconnected with a gun-toting rock star. The film also stars Thandie Newton, Tom Wilkinson, Gemma Arterton and the always entertaining Jeremy Piven. As well, I am sure, as some other familiar faces.

To help us get all worked up for Ritchie’s return to form, or so we hope, Empire Online has released the first trailer for the film — and it looks like a lot of fun. Have a look for yourself by clicking here.
