Jude Law stars as boozy gangster in ‘Dom Hemingway’ trailer – watch

Law gained 13kg for the role partly by drinking 10 cans of Coke a day

The first trailer for British crime comedy film Dom Hemingway has been released. Watch it below.

Jude Law stars as the title character: a boozy, sleazy and sweary but ultimately charming safe-cracker who has just been released after a 12-year prison stint and is looking to claim his just desserts for keeping his mouth shut. Law piled on 13kg for the role, he has revealed, partly by drinking 10 cans of Coke a day.

Richard E Grant co-stars as Hemingway’s best friend and the cast also includes Game Of Thrones‘ Emilia Clarke, Oscar-nominated Mexican actor Demián Bichir and Misfits star Nathan Stewart-Jarrett.


Richard Shephard, best known for his TV work on Girls, 30 Rock and Ugly Betty, directed from his own script. Shooting took place in St Tropez and various locations in London.

Dom Hemingway premiered at the Toronto International Film Festival earlier this month (September) to largely positive reviews. It opens in UK cinemas on November 15.
