Dom Hemingway Pic Sees Jude Law And Richard E. Grant Stuck In The '70s

Yellow shades? Check. One black leather glove? Check. Beer? Check.

Underappreciated comedy gem The Matador came out in 2006, taking Pierce Brosnan and putting him in a pair of black leather pants and cowboy boots just to make you laugh. The mastermind behind The Matador, director Richard Shepard, hasn't made a movie since, but he's finally back with Dom Hemingway, and he's pulling a similar sartorial trick on stars Jude Law and Richard E. Grant, as the new still below proves.

Yes, that's a slightly-chunkier-than-normal Jude Law - his weight gain was for the film and the film alone - in an ill-fitting '70s suit, swigging a beer and boasting a pair of muttonchops that would make a ram blush. Then there's Withnail himself, complete with snazzy yellow shades and a single black glove.

If this still doesn't get you interested in the crime thriller, we're not sure what will. This plot synopsis, perhaps:

Dom Hemingway (Law) is a walking disaster area-cum-safecracker who's just got out of a 12-year stretch in prison, ready to collect his reward for keeping shtum in honour of his big boss, Mr. Fontaine (Demián Bichir). The trouble is, he's a swear-friendly mess, and even with the help of his best mate Dickie Black (Grant), he can't help but keep cocking everything up, getting into trouble with Fontaine's girlfriend, a car crash and his long-lost daughter Evelyn (Emilia Clarke).
