The latest poster for French director Guillaume Canet’s upcoming crime thriller Blood Ties plays up the family angle with a scrapbook-style layout featuring cast members Clive Owen, Zoe Saldana, Mila Kunis, Marion Cotillard, James Caan, and Billy Crudup.

Set in 1970s New York, Blood Ties follows 50-year-old Chris (Clive Owen) as he attempts to put his life back together after being released from prison, where he was serving time following a gangland murder. Waiting outside the prison gates for him is his younger brother, Frank (Billy Crudup), a cop with a bright future who’s hoping his brother has changed his ways. Despite setting Frank up with a job and a roof over his head, and reconnecting him with his children and ex-wife (Marion Cotillard), Chris just can’t seem to shake the life of crime he had before. Upon the discovery of Chris’ relapse into crime, Frank banishes his brother from his life only to find that despite not wanting anything to do with Chris, he can’t escape their joint destiny.

Blood Ties, which premiered at Cannes last year, hits theaters and VOD on March 21.
