It's a new month, and with it comes new shows and movies on Netflix. One of the new Netflix shows you should be on the lookout for in March is the crime drama The Gentlemen. It stars Emmy nominee Theo James as a British soldier who unexpectedly inherits his family's massive estate as well as the large weed empire underneath the property. It is slated to be released on Netflix on March 7, so mark your calendar!

You might be wondering why this upcoming Netflix series sounds so familiar. It's probably because you watched the 2019 movie of the same name. This new show is considered an extension of The Gentlemen movie, which was written, directed, and produced by English filmmaker Guy Ritchie. Ritchie came up with the story for the movie with Ivan Atkinson and Marn Davies. He's best known for directing the period mystery films Sherlock Holmes and Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows.

Since The Gentlemen series will be coming out soon, maybe you want to go back and rewatch the film version to prepare for its release. Or, maybe it'll be your first time watching The Gentlemen movie. But where exactly can you watch it? As always, we've got you covered!

The Gentlemen was released in theaters back in January 2020 and was a box office hit. It managed to gross $115 million worldwide against a $22 million budget. Critics had mostly positive things to say about the action comedy flick, with many praising the movie for its visuals, intriguing mystery, and well-written script, among other things.

Here's what one critic said about The Gentlemen via Rotten Tomatoes:

"A clever, compelling, absolutely insane crime drama whose incredibly appealing visuals match its complex characterisation and intriguing plot."

Apple TV provided us with the plot of the movie and we shared it below:

"A talented American graduate of Oxford, using his unique skills, and audacity, creates a marijuana empire using the estates of impoverished British aristocrats. However, when he tries to sell his empire to a fellow American billionaire, a chain of events unfolds, involving blackmail, deception, mayhem and murder between street thugs, Russian oligarchs, Triad gangsters and gutter journalists."

Academy Award-winning actor Matthew McConaughey stars in the leading role of cannabis baron, Michael "Mickey" Pearson. Joining McConaughey in the cast are Charlie Hunnam, Henry Golding, Michelle Dockery, Jeremy Strong, Eddie Marsan, Colin Farrell, Hugh Grant, and others.
