Michelle Dockery is a long way from Downton in ‘The Gentlemen’ trailer – watch!

The first trailer for Downton Abbey star Michelle Dockery’s new movie has arrrived.

The 37-year-old English actress is best known for her role as Lady Mary in ITV’s hit period drama series.

Following the release of the Downton movie in September, Dockery returns to cinemas in 2020 with The Gentlemen.

The upcoming British gangster film comes from director Guy Ritchie, who directed both of Robert Downey Jr’s Sherlock Holmes movies and Disney’s recent Aladdin remake.

Alongside Michelle Dockery, the action-comedy movie stars Matthew McConaughey (Magic Mike), Charlie Hunnam (King Arthur: Legend of the Sword), Henry Golding (Crazy Rich Asians) and Colin Farrell (Fantastic Beasts), together with an almost unrecognisable Hugh Grant (A Very English Scandal).

Watch the trailer:

The official synopsis reads: “The Gentleman follows American expat Mickey Pearson (Matthew 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.”

The Gentlemen will be released in the UK and Ireland on Wednesday 1st January.

It emerged this week that Downton Abbey creator Julian Fellowes is considering a follow-up series set in the 1970s, with “Mary as an old lady, bossing them all around.”

The Downton Abbey movie is available to pre-order on DVD on Amazon.
