Get ready to mark your calendars, as the exhilarating first trailer for Guy Ritchie’s latest film, “The Ministry of Ungentlemanly Warfare,” is out and fans can’t wait to see it. This action-packed project by the acclaimed British director is based on the historical novel by war correspondent and author Damien Lewis. While the film is set to hit theaters in the US on April 19th, viewers in Spain will be treated to its premiere directly on Amazon Prime Video, although the release date is yet to be announced.
“The Ministry of Ungentlemanly Warfare” boasts an impressive ensemble of actors, including Henry Cavill and the talented Eiza González, along with Alan Ritchson, Henry Golding, Henrique Zaga, Alex Pettyfer, Cary Elwes, Hero Fiennes Tiffin, Babs Olusanmokun, and Til Schweiger. This riveting tale surrounds a covert British military outfit, initiated by none other than Prime Minister Winston Churchill and spy novelist Ian Fleming, the mind behind none other than James Bond. This secretive group’s unique tactics and operations during World War II played a pivotal role in shifting the tide of the war.

Not only was “Snatch” a box office hit, but it also secures its place as a favorite among many film lovers.
Beyond this cult classic, Ritchie’s oeuvre includes diverse and remarkable films like “Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels,” “The Gentlemen,” and his take on the investigative adventures of “Sherlock Holmes,” featuring Robert Downey Jr., Rachel McAdams, and Jude Law. Other notable works include the unique “RocknRolla” and, in a move that surprised many, his direction of the live-action adaptation of Disney’s “Aladdin,” which starred Will Smith and brought new life to the beloved animated classic.
