New Trailer Shows Paul Bettany In British Thriller Blood
Whodunnit becomes what have we done...

Amid all the Cannes madness, here's a more homegrown effort for you: the new trailer for Blood, a thriller starring Paul Bettany and Stephen Grahams as Joe and Chrissie Fairburn, cops and brothers investigating the murder of a young girl. But the problem here isn't just finding out who was responsible, but covering up what happened next. For more on that, watch the trailer below.


As you can see, the film also stars Brian Cox as the brothers' father, a police legend who's just beginning his descent into dementia. The brothers are under pressure to live up to their father's reputation - which may lead to recklessness. Mark Strong plays fellow policeman Robert, who's soon putting pressure on the brothers as he investigates a related crime.

Bill Gallagher, of TV series Blackout and Conviction, wrote the script, and Nick Murphy, who directed Rebecca Hall chiller The Awakening called the shots here. Blood hits selected cinemas, video on demand and pay per view on May 31, with its DVD & Blu-ray debut soon after on June 10
