Here's a clip from South African neo-noir thriller How To Steal 2 Million, which I profiled about a month ago, and was impressed by - at least based on what I read about it and seeing its trailer.

Directed by Charles Vundla, and starring Menzi Ngubane, Rapulana Seiphemo, Terry Pheto, Hlubi Mboya and John Kani. Kani might be the most familiar to those in the west. A veteran actor of stage and screen, as well as a writer in his own right, Kani's resume includes parts in The Ghost And The Darkness, and Sarafina, and will next be seen alongside Ralph Fiennes and Gerard Butler in Coriolanus is a 2011 film adaptation of Shakespeare's tragedy.

The synopsis reads: "It’s a jungle out there. That’s how we meet our lead character Jack. It’s been five years since he’s seen his partner and best friend Twala. Jack did five years for a robbery gone bad. Twala never got caught and Jack never talked. But Twala is as treacherous as Jack is honorable. He’s married Jack’s former fiancée. Jack wants to go legit but after being rejected for a loan he needs a new source of capital. Twala presents him with an opportunity a job with a R2 million take. The complication is that the mark is Twala’s father. Jacks partner for the job is the tough and sexy Olive. Little does he know she will prove to be more devious then his old friend."

The film premieres in 2 days, August 17th, in Johannesburg, South Africa. No word yet on whether it'll travel, though I suspect it will.

First, here's the brand new clip (and, if you missed it the first time, check out the full trailer below):

And here's the official trailer:
