WATCH OUR EXCLUSIVE TRAILER ABOVE.
Fifty-year-old Chris (Clive Owen) has just been released from prison on good behaviour, several years after he was involved in a gangland murder. Waiting for him reluctantly outside the prison gates is his younger brother, Frank, a cop with a bright future.
Hoping that Chris has changed, Frank (Billy Crudup) is willing to give his brother a chance; he shares his home, finds him a job, and helps him reconnect with his children and his ex-wife. But Chris’s past quickly begins to catch up with him, and his descent back into a life of crime becomes inevitable.
For Frank, it’s the last in a long line of betrayals, and he banishes him from his life. But it’s already too late; the brothers’ destiny will be forever bound.
'Blood Ties' is the latest film to adopt a simultaneous release strategy, so that viewers will be able to see it in the cinema on 15 August, and it will be available for digital download and premium on-demand on the same day.
