With a leading role for the legendary actor, 80 and actress, 73, as a scammer and his victim, the intense clip sees the couple playing a dangerous game of cat and mouse.

Helen & # 39; s well-to-do widow Betty McLeish opens with their first date and asks Ian Roy Courtnay, whose name is Brian: & # 39; So tell me, have you done this much? Meeting people at the computer service? Don't you think it's always the same? & # 39;

Responding, he says: You mean the anticipation, followed by the disappointment, and I tell myself that this time I will do it differently.

& # 39; That's why I have to confess to you a cheat on my part, my name isn't actually Brian, it's Roy, & # 39; he confesses, while his feelings for Betty seem to grow.

But Roy & # 39; s affection may not be as genuine as it seems, because he tells his friend Vincent (Jim Carter) that she & # 39; almost £ 3 million & # 39; is worth and that he will gain everything.

However, the opponent's plan to get in the way is Betty & # 39; s son Steven, played by Russell Tovey, who looks suspiciously at Roy when they meet.

Steven speaks frankly with his mother and warns that & # 39; it's too early to get close to him & # 39 ;.

Even with caution lurking, Roy says to her: & I have fallen in love with you. & # 39;

To which she answers: & # 39; Do you know who you are? You are the only one on this planet that makes me feel that I am not the only one. & # 39;

However, something more ominous seems to be bubbling beneath the surface, as a scene sees an unknown man saying to Roy: & I know things about you, who you really are. & # 39;

Conman: But Roy & # 39; s affection may not be as genuine as it seems, because he tells his friend Vincent (Jim Carter) that she & # 39; almost £ 3 million & # 39; is worth and that he will gain everything.

While his friend Vincent tells him he doesn't want to do this & # 39; but Roy can't be stopped, it seems like someone else adds: & # 39; It's the game, the adrenaline rush. & # 39;

If you take things to another level, the trailer takes a very dark turn, as Roy sees a CCTV camera moving so that he is out of sight when he fights a man in a subway station before he throws him over the edge of the platform , and in an oncoming train.

In another scene, Steven tries to confront Roy while saying that it looks like you have had the past.

With a dark expression on his face, the conman responds: & # 39; Enough to last multiple lives. & # 39;

Smitten: Even with caution, she says to Roy: & Do you know who you are? You are the only one on this planet that makes me feel that I am not alone & # 39;

It then teases some very intense scenes, before Helen's Betty tells Roy: “You know it's very odd to do things you could never have imagined, secrets between you, god, the devil and the dead. & # 39;

He dramatically closes the trailer and then shouts: & # 39; You don't know him. & # 39;

The film marks the first time that Helen and Ian have worked together on the big screen, and the fourth time that Ian and director Bill have worked together, including his Oscar-nominated turn in Gods and Monsters.

The Good Liar will be released on November 8 in cinemas in Great Britain and on November 15 in the US.
