Most Obvious Use Of "London Calling" Ever



Set to hit UK cinemas in four weeks, it's about time that a trailer for writer William Monahan's directorial debut "London Boulevard" hit, but upon viewing, it's easy to see why rumblings on this one were not positive and it explains the film's absence from any festival runs this year.

Based on the book by Ken Bruen, the film stars Colin Farrell and Keira Knightley in the story of a man newly released from prison (Farrell) who falls in love with a reclusive young movie star (Knightley) and finds himself in a duel with a vicious gangster. The trailer points to a film a bit more darkly comedic than we were expecting, but we're disappointed to say it wasn't all that engaging either. There is something rather dull and lifeless about the whole affair, but we will grant the film this, the cinematography by Chris Menges looks great. The supporting cast is solid group of talent that includes Ray Winstone, Eddie Marsan, Anna Friel, David Thewlis and Stephen Graham and the film will feature a score by Sergio Pizzorno, guitarist of UK rockers Kasabian.

"London Boulevard" hits UK theaters on November 26th and will land in the United States in February 2011. Watch the trailer after the jump.
