Powerhouse New Trailer For The Connection

Crime films are always cooler when based on true events. The same applies when they’re set in France. That’s just science.

With this in mind, you should be doubly excited by the prospect of The Connection, an upcoming thriller set around the glistening shorelines of Marseille, which charts the real life story of a police magistrate who finds himself in a one-man battle with a major group of heroin traffickers (we told you it was cool).

Jean Dujardin stars as Pierre Michel, the lawman tasked with bringing down the city’s criminal underworld, and, as you can see in the stylish yet dramatic new trailer below, it isn’t long before he incurs the wrath of drug kingpin Gaëtan Zampa.

If you’re a fan of Mesrine, The Prophet, or any other classic French crime caper of recent years, you should mark 29 May in your diary right now.

Frankly, Marseille hasn’t looked this unsavoury since Joey Barton moved there.

The Connection is in cinemas from 29 May
