Blood Ties — Red Band Film Clip


added: Fri, Mar 21st '14

Available today on VOD and in select theaters, "Blood Ties" is a 70s-set New York crime throwback starring Clive Owen and Billy Crudup as two brothers on the opposite side of the law. Crudup is a straight-arrow detective whose loyalty is tested when his nefarious brother (Owen) returns to his old life of crime after serving a long stint in prison.

But just how bad can a person be when their brother is a law-abiding police officer? Well, pretty bad. Watch a motorcycle helmet-wearing Owen as he storms into a local dive bar with guns blazing in this new blood-soaked red band clip from "Blood Ties."

Directed by French actor/filmmaker Guillaume Canet (Tell No One) who co-penned the script with New York filmmaker James Gray (We Own the Night), "Blood Ties" boasts an impressive cast that includes Marion Cotillard, Mila Kunis, Zoe Saldana, James Caan and Belgian actor Matthias Schoenaerts.

New York, 1974. Fifty-year-old Chris (Clive Owen) has just been released on good behavior after several years in prison following a gangland murder. Reluctantly waiting for him outside the gates is his younger brother, Frank (Billy Crudup), a cop with a bright future. Chris and Frank have always been different, and their father, Leon (James Caan), who raised them alone, seems to favor Chris despite all his troubles. Yet blood ties are the ones that bind, and Frank, hoping that his brother has changed, is willing to give him a chance -- he shares his home, finds him a job, and helps him reconnect with his children and his ex-wife, Monica (Marion Cotillard). But Chris’ inevitable descent back into a life of crime proves to be the last in a long line of betrayals, and after his brother’s latest transgressions, Frank banishes him from his life. But it’s already too late, as the brothers’ destiny is bound together, forever.
