Downton Abbey's Hugh Bonneville and Line of Duty's Kelly Macdonald are starring in a new thriller for Netflix titled I Came By, and the first trailer has just dropped.

As we see in the trailer, Pride's George MacKay and Percelle Ascott play Toby and Jay, a pair of social activists and graffiti artists that target the wealthy. After a disagreement, Toby decides to break into the house of Bonneville's former High Court Judge, Sir Hector Blake.

There he discovers more than he bargained for, and it leads him and his loved ones into a lot of potential danger.

The trailer doesn't reveal what exactly that secret is, but we hear Hector tell Toby about how freeing it was to give into his violent tendencies so we can imagine it's something dark.

It's quite the far cry from the roles Bonneville is used to playing, and we're here for it. We don't have too long to wait as I Came By will be released on Netflix on August 31, following a limited cinema release from August 19.

Maybe darker roles are something that the actor will stick with too, seeing as how he recently admitted that he thinks Downton Abbey is over following the release of its second film earlier this year.

"I suspect, on a practical level, it's run its course now," he said. "I think that was a good time to quit. I don't know. I'm never gonna second guess the future, but did think for a while, actually, yeah, why not, let's keep going.

"But I do think it could get a bit thin. I think the second film was such a joyous one and such a good note on which to end the story. And it does feel like it can end.

"There's still open doors in it, but I think it might be the right time to stop."

I Came By will be released in select cinemas on August 19, before dropping on Netflix on August 31.
