The inevitable clash between an unbeatable crew addicted to heists and an elite unit of Los Angeles detectives comes to a head in the action-filled crime drama Den of Thieves.

In the tradition of Michael Mann’s Heat, the crime saga is set in Los Angeles and follows the intersecting and often personally connected lives of an elite unit of the LA County Sheriff’s Department and the state’s most successful bank robbery crew as they plan a seemingly impossible heist on the Federal Reserve Bank of Downtown Los Angeles.

Directed by Christian Gudegast, the film stars Gerard Butler (London Has Fallen) and, as the “bad guys,” Curtis “50 Cent” Jackson (Escape Plan), Pablo Schreiber (13 Hours: The Secret Soldiers of Benghazi), O’Shea Jackson Jr. (Straight Outta Compton) and Evan Jones (A Million Ways to Die in the West).
