All aboard the ship of ghouls! MUST-SEE OF THE MONTH King of Thieves TBC Michael Caine leads an all-star cast of ‘diamond wheezers’ in this thrilling caper DIRECTOR JAMES MARSH starring Michael Caine, ray winstone, Michael Gambon Directed by The Theory of Everything’s James Marsh, from a script by Mindhunter’s Joe Penhall (who also wrote the screenplays for The Road and Enduring Love), King of Thieves recreates the real-life Hatton Garden ‘heist’, which, in April 2015, saw a gang of elderly men attempt to pull off the “largest burglary in English legal history”. Their target? A high security vault with around £200 million worth of cash and jewels inside. (Now that’s what we call a retirement fund!) Boasting an all-star line-up that reads like a who’s who of veteran British talent including Charlie Cox, Paul Whitehouse, Jim Broadbent, Ray Winstone and the legendary Sir Michael Caine (channelling his Italian Job alter-ego, Charlie Croker), this riveting drama is a faithful yet highly entertaining retelling of those astonishing events, with typically superb and very funny performances from the flawless cast. A word to the wise. While knowing how it ends definitely won’t spoil your enjoyment, don’t Google the aftermath if you’re lucky enough to be in the dark about the outcome (it really was headline news around the world). It’s more fun to go in criminally unaware. 14 SEP MOV IE M ATHEM ATICS + Caine + Crew + Cash Capture? = King of Thieves Watch the trailer or when accompanied by an adult 15 Suitable for ages 15+ 18 Adults only odeon.co.uk 5
