Jude Law leads the crime-comedy as the eponymous Dom Hemingway himself, and the early reviews out of Toronto certainly suggest that there’s a lot of fun to be had here.
With just a few more weeks to go before its release, Lionsgate has debuted the first TV spot online, giving us another glimpse of Law’s bare behind, as seen in the first trailer last month.
Dom Hemingway (Jude Law) is a larger-than-life safecracker with a loose fuse, funny, profane, and dangerous. Back on the streets of London after twelve years in prison, it’s time to collect what he’s owed for keeping his mouth shut.
Travelling with his devoted best friend Dickie (Richard E. Grant), Dom visits his crime boss Mr Fontaine (Demián Bichir) in the south of France to claim his reward. But Dom’s drink and drug-fuelled ego decides that what he’s lost can’t be replaced. One car accident and a femme fatale later, Dom realises that his priority must be to reconnect with his long-lost daughter Evelyn (Emilia Clarke). But Dom does what Dom does best. He screws things up for everyone…
Richard E. Grant stars opposite Law as his best friend, Dickie, with Demián Bichir, Emilia Clarke, Madaline Ghenea, and Nathan Stewart-Jarrett completing the cast.
The Emmy-winning Shepard (30 Rock, Girls) directs from his own script, with Jeremy Thomas (Sexy Beast, The Last Emperor) producing.
Dom Hemingway will be released in the UK and Ireland on 15th November, with its US release date set further back for April 4th, 2014.
