I really enjoyed Nick Murphy‘s directorial debut, The Awakening, and back in 2011, we reported on his follow-up, the crime-thriller Blood. The plot centers on two policemen who kill a murder suspect and are then plunged into chaos when they are forced to investigate their own crime. I’m ashamed to admit that I had forgotten about the movie, but now a trailer has been released, and it looks like Murphy has nailed the genre just like he did with gothic horror in The Awakening. Also, I’m not going to turn down a movie with a lead cast that includes Paul Bettany, Stephen Graham, Brian Cox, and Mark Strong.
Hit the jump to check out the trailer. Blood is set to hit U.K. theaters and VOD on May 31st, and be released on Blu-ray & DVD on June 10th. That short release window isn’t a great sign, but I’m still eager to see the flick, and hopefully a U.S. release will be announced soon.
