Gerard Butler and Thandie Newton in Rocknrolla

There are few directors in the world today who are as unique as Guy Ritchie. His films, everything from Lock Stock and Two Smoking Barrells to Snatch, have all had a quality that is all their own, or at least a quality that is limited to his body of work. Well, his early body of work at least. For fans of Ritchie’s extasy-infused, high-octain beginnings have seen his talent spend on working the baby factory with his wife Madonna, as well as a throw-away film called Swept Away in 2002. To say the least, he has yet to really recover from the damage of the Madonna-headlined film.

That is, until now. In his upcoming film RocknRolla, Ritchie takes badass incarnate Gerard Butler and throws him into a whirlwind story about the intersection of London’s seedy underbelly and a Russian mobster’s shady land deal, all somehow interconnected with a gun-toting rock star. The film also stars Thandie Newton, Tom Wilkinson, Gemma Arterton and the always entertaining Jeremy Piven. As well, I am sure, as some other familiar faces.

To help us get all worked up for Ritchie’s return to form, or so we hope, Empire Online has released the first trailer for the film — and it looks like a lot of fun. Have a look for yourself by clicking here.

What do you think of the first trailer for RocknRolla?
