'Peaky Blinders' Season 5 Trailer Sees Sam Claflin Meet Cillian Murphy (VIDEO)
Peaky Blinders is giving fans a glimpse of Cillian Murphy in Season 5.
The BBC One series released a trailer Tuesday of the 43-year-old actor as gangster-turned-Parliament member Tommy Shelby.
The preview opens with a dramatic image of Tommy (Murphy) in a field with a crucified man. Tommy then has a conversation with his sister, Ada Shelby (Sophie Rundle), that sets an ominous tone.
"There's God, and there are the Peaky Blinders. We own the ropes — who's gonna hang us now, eh?" Tommy says.
Anya Taylor-Joy and Brian Gleeson have also joined the cast.
"No one is going to hang you Tommy — you're gonna hang yourself," Ada responds.
In addition, Tommy captures the attention of Oswald Mosley (Sam Claflin), a charismatic politician. Mosley was a real-life Parliament member who became the leader of the British Union of Fascists.
Murphy said at the Season 5 premiere last week that Tommy is "out of his comfort zone" with Mosley.
From Rupert Grint's gig on Amazon Prime's 'ABC Murders' to Daniel Radcliffe's debut on TBS' 'Miracle Workers.'
"He's playing a big boys' game — playing chess if you will — and Mosley is someone who's grown up playing chess," the actor said, according to Deadline.
"[They] try to outwit one another using each other to try and better themselves and get ahead," Claflin added. "It's a great journey. For Tommy, it's a very, very different approach, Tommy's battle is with Tommy. Tommy is his own worst enemy."
Peaky Blinders co-stars Helen McCrory and Paul Anderson, and will premiere its fifth season later this year.
