King of Thieves Official Trailer (2019) - Michael Caine.
A famous thief in his younger years, 77 year old widower Brian Reader pulls together a band of misfit criminals to plot an unprecedented burglary at the Hatton Garden Safe Deposit. The thieves, all in their 60s and 70s except for one, employ their old-school thieving skills to plan the heist over the Easter holiday weekend. Posing as gas repairmen, they enter the deposit, neutralise the alarms, and proceed to drill a hole into the wall of the safe. Two days later, they manage to escape with allegedly over £14 million worth of stolen jewels and money. When police are called to the scene and the investigation starts, the cracks between the misfit gang members begin to show as they row over how to share the goods and become increasingly distrustful of each other. Meanwhile, the crime has become public knowledge, and a frenzy of speculations begin. As details about the crime come to light, both the British public and the media are captivated, and the investigation is followed with bated breath around the United Kingdom. The gang badly fractures when trying to dispose of the stolen assets. Brian is excluded by the group and not realising the true value of the haul the gang make several mistakes culminating in all of them being arrested. The only gang member to escape justice is Brian's young protege who escapes the country. All of the gang are remanded to custody.
