"The Brothers Bloom" won't open widely in theaters until late May, but the first seven minutes of the Rian Johnson's drama has made its round. Brought forth by Hulu, this opening sequence is used to tell the story of where the con-men characters came from. It also gives an idea to the quirky tone of the movie.
"The Brothers Bloom" follows the story of two international con artists, Stephen and Bloom. Having perfected the art of swindling fortunes through years of fraternal teamwork, they now decide to take on one last spectacular job, luring Penelope, a beautiful and eccentric heiress, into an elaborate plot that takes them around the world. But, when one of the brothers falls in love with her, things get even more complicated.
Pairing up Adrien Brody and Mark Ruffalo as Bloom and Stephen respectively, this drama movie also sees Rachel Weisz as Penelope and Rinko Kikuchi as sexy Japanese explosives expert Bang Bang. Directed and scripted by Rian Johnson, it has been set to get a wide release in the U.S. on May 29 with a selected release on May 15.
