Director Guy Ritchie returns to his roots with new gangster flick, The Gentlemen, and he’s brought an all-star cast of big-name Brits and Americans with him. The movie, which sees a marijuana kingpin (Matthew McConaughey) attempting to sell off his empire to a fellow drug lord – and facing a ton of complications and F-bombs in the process – is already shaping up to be one of Ritchie’s best-reviewed movies in years. Ahead of the release of The Gentlemen, Rotten Tomatoes sat down with McConaughey and co-stars Hugh Grant, Michelle Dockery, Charlie Hunnam, and Henry Golding to discover what drew them to Ritchie’s latest project, how they pivoted with the director’s on-set changes to scenes, and what they think makes the perfect gentleman. Plus: Golding gave us some fresh new details on the upcoming G.I. Joe spin-off, Snake Eyes.
