To celebrate the release of RocknRolla in cinemas September 5, Warner Bros Pictures , MySpace and Future Cinema have come together to bring RocknRolla to life with a special screening of the film that will be introduced by Guy Ritchie and some of the cast in a secret London location.
On Wednesday August 27, Roger Rankin and The Beat will be playing live along with a very special guest as well as performers, set design, installation artists, DJs and much more to create the world that is RocknRolla.
From writer/director Guy Ritchie comes RocknRolla, in which he revisits the seedy, offbeat landscape of modern day London that he explored in his critically acclaimed films Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels and Snatch.
When a Russian mobster orchestrates a crooked land deal, millions of dollars are up for grabs, and London’s entire criminal underworld wants in on the action. Everyone from a dangerous crime lord to a sexy accountant, a corrupt politician and down-on-their-luck petty thieves conspire, collude and collide with one another in an effort to get rich quick.
Gerard Butler (300, Nim’s Island) stars as One Two, a street-smart mobster who has learnt to play both sides of the fence. Two-time Oscar nominee Tom Wilkinson (Michael Clayton, In the Bedroom) stars as the ruthless head mobster, Lenny Cole, part of London’s old mob regime, which is quickly losing ground to the wealthier foreign mob. Thandie Newton (Run, Fatboy, Run, The Pursuit of Happyness) stars as One Two’s love interest, Stella, a smart and sexy accountant with ties to the underworld. Idris Elba (28 Weeks Later, TV’s The Wire) stars as Mumbles, One Two’s partner in crime and best friend. Chris “Ludacris” Bridges (Crash, Fred Claus) and Jeremy Piven (TV’s Entourage) star respectively as Mickey and Roman, two Americans trying to break into the music scene in London. Rounding out the main cast are Mark Strong (Sunshine) as Archie, Lenny Cole’s right-hand man, and Toby Kebbell (Control) as Johnny, a British punk rock star.
