‘Snatch’ Review: One Punch From Brad Pitt Had More Power Than Crackle’s New TV Show

16 March 2017 3:11 PM, PDT | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

It’s been 16 years since Guy Ritchie’s London crime story, “Snatch,” first debuted in the U.S., and, while the black comedy pulled in a decent sum, its primary accomplishment was of a cult fandom (and earning Guy Ritchie a shot at the big time). With that in mind, I don’t feel too bad for only remembering a few key moments from a film built on a sharp wit and distinct characters:

Alan Ford’s thick, creepy glasses; Dennis Farina’s crass American foil to all those classy Brits; Jason Statham proving he can do more than just beat the hell out of his co-stars; the tragic fate of Benicio del Toro’s Franky Four Fingers; and, of course, the sole iconic element of Ritchie’s first major studio film (aside from ultra slo-mo fight scenes): Brad Pitt’s gibberish-spouting gypsy boxer with a devastating right hook, »

TV Review: ‘Snatch’ on Crackle, Starring Rupert Grint

16 March 2017 11:19 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Guy Ritchie’s 2000 film “Snatch” would not be my first pick for a movie that could be massaged into a television franchise — one with 10 hourlong episodes in the bag and possible future seasons lurking on the horizon. The film is a comedy of capers, where crooked hustlers from every walk of life descend on London to pursue their own selfish ends — whether that’s a caravan, a dog, a couple thousand pounds, or a diamond the size of a fist. It’s a film dependent on a tight, expertly woven narrative to feel like more than a mess — and because of its showy, razor-sharp editing, it makes for a violent urban romp that is ineffably cool, even as it reveals its characters’ fundamental, pathetic stupidity.

Snatch,” the Crackle show, imports the general subject matter — small-time crooks, jewels, fixed underground boxing matches — and visual and auditory style of the film — smash cuts, ballsy »

Snatch Season 1 Review

15 March 2017 8:30 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Two episodes were provided for review prior to broadcast.

Few directors have enjoyed an opening one-two like Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels and Snatch, Guy Ritchie’s crime capers that starred lovable rogues exploring the underbelly of London. The latter is now being adapted into a TV series by the beautifully-named network Crackle, but as it turns out, it has little to do with its namesake, telling a fresh story in modern London with a new all-star cast who’ve walked straight out of the pages of a girl’s fantasy scrapbook.

Where Ritchie’s Snatch gave us tough guys like Vinnie Jones and Jason Statham, here we get hunky Luke Pasqualino of Skins fame, Gossip Girl’s Ed Westwick and even Ron Rupert Grint in the role of aristocratic bumbleton Charlie Cavendish-Scott. Seriously, I wouldn’t be surprised if Hoult, Radcliffe and Harington are lined up for future episodes. »

15 March 2017 8:00 AM, PDT | Entertainment Tonight | See recent Entertainment Tonight news »

Gossip Girl star Ed Westwick is a long way from the Upper East Side in his new Crackle series, Snatch.

In Et’s exclusive sneak peek at Thursday’s series premiere, Westwick’s Sonny Castillo, a fiery and ruthless Cuban gangster, is counting his cash when his “moll,” Lotti (Phoebe Dyvenor), pesters him about getting her fair cut of the earnings from his London club, El Flamingo.

“Always with the drama, Lotti,” Sonny sneers. “You need to center your fire, baby girl.”

Watch: Chace Crawford Talks Life After 'Gossip Girl' and Reuniting With Ed Westwick!

“Yeah, you’re right,” Lotti agrees, grabbing a handful of cash and dipping it into a burning candle before tossing it in the air. “I’ll torch this place to the ground with you in it.”

Q&A: ‘Snatch’ TV Show Star Dougray Scott on Meeting With Bank Robbers to Prepare for His Role

14 March 2017 1:32 PM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Crackle’s newest TV show serializes the Guy Ritchie gangster flick “Snatch,” telling the story of a bank robber’s son who happens upon the very trove of gold bullion that landed his father back in prison 15 years ago. Dougray Scott stars as Vic Hill, the original gangster whose son finds the stolen truck load of gold and sets Hill on a quest toward redemption. Variety spoke with Scott about the show, his character, and the work that went into preparing for his gangster role. “Snatch” arrives on Crackle March 16.

What got you excited about the project?

It was very different from anything that I’d read before. I’d seen the movie, “Snatch,” and I really loved it but I thought this was different from the film. Ostensibly, [the TV show] is a heist movie, and then turns into a prison breakout movie, and then into a ‘getting our gold back’ movie. So »

Maddie Ziegler says she's "just a regular teenager" in her new audiobook, The Maddie Diaries.

"People think they know everything about me from Dance Moms or my Sia [music] videos, and I guess I understand how they might feel that way," she writes in her book. "I mean, I was completely hooked on Gossip Girl, and I felt like I knew all of the characters on that show personally. We were family."

When it comes to Gossip Girl, Blair (Leighton Meester) and Chuck (Ed Westwick) will forever go down as the show's most iconic couple. Not only did we swoon over Chuck Bass and his devilish charm, but there's a big part of us that aspired to be as great as Blair Cornelia Waldorf. While they were extraordinary on their own, together, they were a force to be reckoned with. Even through all the drama and heartbreak that came with the Upper East Side, they managed to persevere, like only soulmates can do. As the show celebrates its tenth anniversary this year, let's look back at how Blair and Chuck's epic love story came to be.

Rupert Grint’s Hustler Hits Up The London Crime Scene In First Trailer For Snatch

16 January 2017 9:52 AM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Though it hasn’t garnered the same traction as, say, 24: Legacy or FX’s acclaimed Fargo, Crackle is in the process of rebooting Snatch, a serialized version of Guy Ritchie’s cult crime caper that’s due to premiere in exactly two months’ time.

Comprised of 10 episodes in total, the Snatch of 2017 is headed up by former Harry Potter star Rupert Grint. He’ll play Charlie Cavendish, a budding hustler who makes a foray into London’s seedy crime scene, only to find himself in deep with the sharks. The high-stakes world of organized crime awaits, though Crackle’s interpretation looks to be a much more refined version of Ritchie’s 2000 original.

That’s a little disappointing, particularly when you consider that the gritty, unforgiving world of Snatch is part and parcel of the film’s charm, but we’re willing to lend Crackle and the creative team the »

Snatch TV series trailer: Ten-part first series airs later in 2017.

Well, now a new TV series is on the way from Crackle, and there is absolutely nothing that you can do about it. Watch the Snatch TV series trailer below.

Rupert Grint leads the cast as Charlie Cavendish, starring alongside alongside Dougray Scott as Vic Hill and Ed Westwick as Sonny Castillo.
