Season two of Crackle’s Snatch opens with the Hill Gang getting into deep, deep trouble and having to take it on the lam (to Spain’s Costa del Sol) to let the heat die down and attempt to save their fortune and their lives.
All ten episodes of Snatch: Season 2 – starring Rupert Grint (Charlie), Lucien Laviscount (Billie) and Luke Pasqualino (Albert) – premiere on Thursday, September 13th.
Crackle’s original dram series Snatch has been picked up for a second season – with a unique Virtual Reality scenario to be created for PlayStation 4 VR this summer.
In the VR scenario, ‘the hustlers attempt to break into the safe of Sonny Castillo (Ed Westwick) and can choose to keep cracking the safe or leave the hideout before the cops and Castillo’s goons arrive on the scene.’ A more thorough description of the VR experience follows.
Inspired by a real life heist in London, “Snatch,” centers on a group of twenty-something, up and coming hustlers who stumble upon a truck load of stolen gold bullion and are suddenly thrust into the high-stakes world of organized crime.
Starring Rupert Grint as Charlie Cavendish-Scott, Snatch is available today on Crackle.

In the trailer, we meet most of the cast – including Rupert Grint (Charlie Cavendish) and Dougray Scot (Vic Hill) – but it’s hard to tell if there’s a character along the lines of Brad Pitt’s Pikey bruiser from the film. Still, it’s a bit of a rush – see yourself by clicking on link.
Guy Ritchie’s off the wall film Snatch – which starred Brad Pitt with an incomprehensible Pikey accent – is being adapted as a drama series by Crackle.
Rupert Grint has signed on to play posh con man Charlie Cavensish in the series. Dougray Scott and Ed Westwick will also star.

That whooshing sound you hear is Harry Potter zipping past Twilight for the largest single day box office take ever. That chewing sound you hear is countless critics – who proclaimed that splitting the final Harry Potter tale into two movies was a naked cash grab – eating crow. Deathly Hallows, Pt. 2 is the best movie of the summer.
Available on DVD/Blu_ray/Digital Download Combo Pack From Warner Home Video as of 4/15/2011
It’s been eleven years since Harry Potter the young half-blood wizard came onto the movie screen in the physical form of Daniel Racliffe. Back in Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone, Harry and his friends were kids attending Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry where they learned magic and engaged in such innocent pursuits as rousing games of Quidditch.
Just like Harry and his friends, the majority of the audiences who embraced the Harry Potter movies were young kids as well. In the time since, that audience has grown up and so has Harry Potter, Ron (Rupert Grint) and Hermione (Emma Watson). Gone of are the days of innocent childhood as the three of them set out on their perilous mission to track down and destroy the secret to Voldemort’s (Ralph Fiennes) immortality and destruction:the Horcruxes. On their own and on the run, they find out that the wizarding world has become a dangerous place. The long-feared war has begun and the Dark Lord has seized control of the Ministry of Magic and even Hogwarts, terrorizing and arresting all who might oppose him. The Chosen One has become the hunted one as the Death Eaters search for Harry with orders to bring him to Voldemort, alive.
There is no doubt about it, Harry Potter isn’t kidding around anymore!
Going in, everyone knew that Harry Potter & The Deathly Hallows Pt. 1 would be the longest prologue in film history. Most of the really important action takes place in the war that consumes most of the second half of the book. Fortunately, Writer Steve Kloves and director David Yates understand that there’s a more subtle war going on in the first half of the book – a war of emotions and, particularly, fears. While we get a fair bit of action in Deathly Hallows Pt. 1, what is most important is that we get to watch Harry, Hermione and Ron face their fears and forge their resolve.
