Lionsgate have recently released their first trailer and quad poster for Noel Clarke's (Kidulthood) Brotherhood.
The actor, writer and director stormed onto the British cinema scene with Kidulthood (2006) and followed it up two years later with Adulthood (2008). And now he is back to complete the trilogy, with Brotherhood.
Brotherhood finds Clarke's character Sam on brooding form – on the wrong side of 40, faced with tragedy, he is forced to juggle the realities of family life and the darker elements of his past. He must also learn that nobody says 'blud' any more.
As well as starring, Clarke is writing and directing, and has assembled a cast that includes rising Grime star Stormzy, plus the likes of Steven Cree (Maleficent), Olivia Chenery (The Interceptor), Tonia Sotiropoulou (Skyfall), Jason Maza (Fish Tank), Nick Nevern (Spring), Adjoa Andoh (Invictus), Arnold Oceng (The Good Lie) and Ashley Thomas (24: Legacy).
There is also an explicit trailer, which contains slightly fruitier language and a taste of some of the violence we can expect.
Brotherhood is due out here in the UK on 2 September, with previews from 29 August.
