Roadside Attractions has released the first theatrical trailer for director Guillaume Canet’s crime drama Blood Ties. The story takes place in New York in 1974, and centers on two brothers. One has recently been released from prison (Clive Owen), and the other is a cop (Billy Crudup) who is trying to help his brother out only to discover that old habits die hard. The trailer paints the film as a crime thriller, but I saw the pic at TIFF and it’s really more of a family drama with tense elements. Regardless, the film never really comes together and kind of slogs its way through the tropes and clichés of a 1970s crime movie.
