The Bank Job doesn’t open until March 7, but why wait ’til then to see Jason Statham and Saffron Burrows in ripped-from-the-headlines bank-robbin’ action, when you can check out the trailer now?

The Roger Donaldson-directed thriller is based on a real-life London bank robbery which baffled the public for years. Read more in the official synopsis below:

In September 1971, thieves tunneled into the vault of a bank in London’s Baker Street and looted safe deposit boxes of cash and jewelry worth over three million pounds. None of it was recovered. Nobody was ever arrested. The robbery made headlines for a few days and then disappeared — the result of a ‘D’ Notice, gagging the press. This film reveals what was hidden for the first time. The story involves murder, corruption and a sex scandal with links to the Royal Family — a story in which the thieves were the most innocent people involved.

Murder? Corruption? British accents? Sounds like this was a script tailor-made for Statham. Click on the link below to see for yourself!
