The Brothers Bloom – Trailer and UK release date
Posted by LiveFor on April 28, 2010
For as long as they can remember, THE BROTHERS BLOOM have only had each other to depend on. From their childhood, mischievously working their way through a series of foster homes, to their highflying lives as international con artists, Stephen (Mark Ruffalo – SHUTTER ISLAND, ETERNAL SUNSHINE OF THE SPOTLESS MIND) and Bloom (Adrien Brody – FANTASTIC MR. FOX, THE DARJEELING LIMITED) have shared everything. However, despite an illustrious career, Stephen is still searching for the perfect con, the one where “everyone gets what they want.” Eager to retire, Bloom agrees to take part in one last grand scam by taking advantage of a lonely, eccentric millionaire called Penelope (Rachel Weisz – THE LOVELY BONES, THE FOUNTAIN). But when a genuine romance begins to blossom between Bloom and Penelope, Bloom finds himself reluctant to exploit her naiveté, but Penelope has already taken the bait. Penelope impulsively joins Bloom, Stephen and their “associate,” a sexy Japanese explosives expert named Bang Bang (Rinko Kikuchi), on an ocean liner to Greece. Convinced she’s happened upon the adventure of a lifetime, Penelope offers to bankroll a million dollar deal and as the quartet makes its way from Athens to Prague to Mexico to St. Petersburg, she quickly becomes addicted to the illicit thrills. But as Stephen’s elaborate web of deceit pulls tighter, Bloom begins to wonder if his brother has devised the most dangerous con of his life.
Academy Award winner® Rachel Weisz (THE CONSTANT GARDENER, THE MUMMY), Academy Award® winner Adrien Brody (THE PIANIST), Mark Ruffalo (ZODIAC), and Academy Award® nominee Rinko Kikuchi (BABEL) star in THE BROTHERS BLOOM, a globe-trotting comedy from Rian Johnston, director of the critically acclaimed BRICK, about the last great adventure of the world’s two best con men.
