Last week, we saw the first images from Guillaume Canet‘s Blood Ties, and now the trailer and poster have been released. The story takes place in New York in 1974, and centers on two brothers. One has recently been released from prison, and the other is a cop who is trying to help his brother out only to discover that old habits die hard. It’s weird to see Marion Cotillard trying on a New York accent, but the crime-drama aspect looks good, and there’s definitely a lot of potential here. As for the poster, I really like the 70s-style they’ve used.
Hit the jump to check out the trailer and poster. The film also stars Clive Owen, Matthias Schoenaerts, Mila Kunis, Billy Crudup, James Caan, and Zoe Saldana.
Blood Ties, the new film from Tell No One director Guillaume Canet, is premiering at this year’s Cannes Film Festival, and the first eight images from the movie have been released. The story takes place in New York in 1974, and centers on two brothers. One has recently been released from prison, and the other is a cop who is trying to help his brother out only to discover that old habits die hard. The stellar cast includes Clive Owen, Marion Cotillard, Matthias Schoenaerts, Mila Kunis, Billy Crudup, James Caan, and Zoe Saldana.
Hit the jump to check out the images. The Cannes Film Festival is now underway, so we should expect to hear the buzz on Blood Ties soon.
Director Marc Webb ((500) Days of Summer) tweeted a set photo from behind the scenes of The Amazing Spider-Man today with the tag: “got caption?” So let’s have a little fun with this one. Check out the image, which features star Andrew Garfield and some stunt performers, and come up with your best caption to submit to our comments section (or Webb himself, if you’re feeling brave).
We also have another batch of photos and video of Mila Kunis and Clive Owen from Guillaume Canet’s Blood Ties. We’ve already seen Owen propose in these set photos, so I’m happy to see they’re still getting along. The 1970s period picture set in Brooklyn follows two brothers on opposite sides of the law who are caught up in the world of organized crime. Hit the jump to check out the set photos and videos.
Tonight’s batch of set photos is connected by a That 70s Show theme. Not only are Mila Kunis and Ashton Kutcher featured, but both are again styled in the fashion of the 70s for their respective period piece:
- Kutcher is playing Steve Jobs in the biopic Jobs: Get Inspired, which covers the Apple founder’s life from 1971-2000.
- Kunis stars alongside Clive Owen, Billy Crudup, Marion Cotillard, and Zoe Saldana in Blood Ties, which centers two brothers involved in organized crime in 1970s Brooklyn

Clive Owen and Billy Crudup are set to lead Guillaume Canet‘s crime thriller Blood Ties. Based off the French novel Les liens du sang, Canet’s English-language debut “centers on a younger brother (Crudup) who has to ask his convict older brother (Owen) to go back into the underworld to help out the family.” As we reported back in November, Mark Wahlberg, Zoe Saldana, and Marion Cotillard were circling the picture. In addition to the casting news regarding Owen and Crudup, THR reports that Saldana and Cotillard have signed on along with Mila Kunis and James Caan. Kunis and Cotillard will play love interests. Bullhead star Matthias Schoenaerts has been offered role, and if he signs on, this cast will be even more impressive.
Canet co-wrote the script for Blood Ties with We Own the Night writer-director James Gray. For those unfamiliar with Canet, I strongly recommend checking out this 2006 mystery flick Tell No One. If the financing on Blood Ties comes together, filming will begin in April in New York.
