Blood Simple: Coen Brothers movie get 4K restoration trailer

Posted on

The Coen Brothers have made so many great movies since 1984’s Blood Simple it is easy to forget the duo’s spare, neo-noir debut still ranks as one of their very best. Now, a trailer for the new 4K restoration of Blood Simple serves as a reminder of the thriller’s many pleasures, from M. Emmet Walsh’s career-best turn as a highly suspect private detective to the fantastic showcasing of the Four Top’s classic tune, “It’s the Same Old Song.”

The restored version of Blood Simple — which also stars Frances McDormand, Dan Hedaya, John Getz, and Samm-Art Williams — opens at Film Forum in New York and at the Alamo New Mission Theater in San Francisco July 1, and at the Landmark Nuart Theatre in Los Angeles, July 29.
