It may look like a fictional crime comedy, as its premise is Hollywood gold, but realising The King of Thieves is based on a true story is reason enough to give this a watch.

The movie tells the true story of the infamous Hatton Garden diamond heist, the biggest and most daring in British history. It is revisited through hilarious performances from a stellar cast, including Michael Caine and Charlie Cox – who we’re excited to see outside of his amazing Daredevil starring. We can already see a film packed with equal parts humour and drama. It’s incredible to take a peak behind the meticulous workings of the largest heist in English history – pulled off by a team of pensioners.
