New Mr. Nice Trailer Online
This is not a James Bond movie

A new trailer for Mr. Nice, the Howard Marks biopic starring Rhys Ifans,has just gone online over at IGN, and it's looking like a cracker.

The film, based on Marks' bestselling autobiography of the same name, follows the Welsh stoner Oxford graduate on his worldwide odyssey in pursuit of "beneficial herbs". He became a master of the ridiculous disguise, got involved with the CIA, MI6, the IRA, the Mafia, and the Mexican secret service, and spent seven years (of a 25 year sentence) in jail in the States.

This new clip is an improvement on the last one (almost a year old now) in that it doesn't look so much like The Boat That Rocked anymore. There's a grainy grunge to the proceedings, and the comedy double-act between Ifans (about as perfectly cast as you can possibly imagine) and co-star David Thewlis, looks priceless. 

Chloe Sevigny, Elsa Pataky, Andrew Tiernan, Omid Djalili and, apparently, Ken Russell are also on-hand, and the director is Bernard Rose (Kreutzer Sonata, Candyman, Paperhouse). Naughtiness commences on October 8th.

RE: Roll on 8th October
I agree. Rhys Ifans is always a joy to watch and he looks to have nailed the part here. I can't wait to see it. "Come 'ere butt!" More
