Generally speaking, one doesn't look to British films for glamour. Old-school class, perhaps. Grit and grime, sure. But Plastic is attempting to add a little more of the sort of sun-soaked, high-living style we associate with our Us cousins to this crime thriller, so you might want to don sunglasses before you check out this trailer. The film sees Ed Speleers' Sam and Will Poulter's Fordy running a credit card scam, along with mates Yatesey (Alfie Allen) and Sebastian De Souza's Rafa. But wouldn't you know it, they get on the wrong side of the wrong man (Thomas Kretschmann) and find themselves forced to come up with a lot of money very fast. We suspect that the presence of Emma Rigby's Frankie in their corner will help, from the looks of this trailer, but we'll have to wait and see on that score. Also starring Graham McTavish »

As their activities become more daring, they accidentally rob a notorious gangster named Marcel (Thomas Kretschmann) and are forced to up their game to pay him back 10 times the amount they stole … with interest. To pay off the debt, they take their scam on the road to Miami »

Our voyage through history's underappreciated films arrives at the year 2011, and a great year for lesser-seen gems...
Even a cursory glance at the top 10 grossing films of 2011 reveals something strange: nine of the entries are sequels. Harry Potter And The Deathly Hallows: Part 2 brought the fantasy franchise to a close with a staggering $1.3bn haul. Transformers: Dark Of The Moon wasn't too far behind with just over $1.1bn. On Stranger Tides continued the Pirates Of The Caribbean series' wave of success, despite mixed reviews.
Elsewhere in the top 10, you'll find another Twilight, a fourth Mission: Impossible, a second Kung Fu Panda, a fifth Fast, another Hangover, and further Cars. Standing alone on the list is The Smurfs, the adaptation of Peyo's Belgian comic strip. In fact, 2011 saw the release of no fewer than 28 sequels - the most we've yet seen in any given year. »
