Guy Ritchie’s ‘The Ministry of Ungentlemanly Warfare’ Finally Gets UK Release Date on Prime Video

Bad news for UK cinema-goers: it won’t be released in theaters!

It’s been two months since Guy Ritchie’s WWII action-comedy The Ministry of Ungentlemanly Warfare was released in US cinemas. During this time, there has been no explanation for why a British film, with a British lead and director, has not been released in the UK.

But now UK fans finally have a date to look forward to: Thursday, July 25th. On this day, The Ministry of Ungentlemanly Warfare will be available to stream on Amazon Prime. Unfortunately, there will not be a theatrical release, which may disappoint some Ritchie fans. However, after a two-month wait, the much-anticipated date is here.

Inspired by the British War Department’s recently declassified documents which told of a secret group of military officials formed by the late Prime Minister Winston Churchill. Ministry stars Henry Cavill as Gus March-Phillips who assembles his own team and leads them on an underground mission.

The official synopsis for the film reads: Based upon recently declassified files of the British War Department and inspired by true events, The Ministry Of Ungentlemanly Warfare is an action-comedy that tells the story of the first-ever special forces organisation formed during WWII by UK Prime Minister Winston Churchill and a small group of military officials including author Ian Fleming. The top-secret combat unit, composed of a motley crew of rogues and mavericks, goes on a daring mission against the Nazis using entirely unconventional and utterly “ungentlemanly” fighting techniques. Ultimately their audacious approach changed the course of the war and laid the foundation for the British SAS and modern Black Ops warfare.
