Zulu will close this year's Cannes Film Festival.
Whitaker's character Ali Sokhela narrowly escaped being murdered as a child by a militant political group, and has since become chief of Cape Town's homicide division.
He joins forces with Bloom's "free-wheeling white officer" to investigate the murder of the young woman, who is the daughter of a feted rugby player.
The Cannes Film Festival runs from May 15-26.
