The Corrupted: poster and trailer released for Sam Claflin and Timothy Spall’s new film

Crime thriller The Corrupted has unveiled its trailer and poster.

The film is set in the aftermath of a bloody land grab that took place across London ahead of the 2012 Olympic Games. The cast features Sam Claflin (The Hunger Games), Timothy Spall (Finding Your Feet), Hugh Bonneville (Paddington), David Hayman (Viceroy’s House), Noel Clarke (Brotherhood), Noami Ackie (Star Wars: Episode IX) and Charlie Murphy (Peaky Blinders).

Watch the trailer:

Beneath the blinding lights and towering sights of the newly-built East London skyline, lies a dark, dangerous web of corruption. Stratford was home to the Olympic Games; decorated in the notion of legacy.

But there’s little hope to be found for the recently released Liam McDonagh (Sam); a talented boxer put away for armed robbery, who wants nothing more than a peaceful life, and to reconnect with his young son Archie. But his brother Sean (Joe Claflin) is in deep, caught up in property developer Clifford Cullen’s (Spall) violent, unforgiving circle, with no route out. Liam knows he must risk everything to save his brother before it’s too late, but first, he needs to know who he can trust – which is a harder proposition than it sounds.

The Corrupted is directed by Ron Scalpello (My Name is Lenny), with a screenplay by Nick Moorcroft (Finding Your Feet). It is produced by Andrew Berg and John Sachs of Eclipse Films (Finding Your Feet); Nik Bower of Riverstone Pictures (Selma) and Laure Vaysse of REP Crime (Hampstead).
