Head into the trenches with the trailer for Journey's End
Lionsgate have just released the trailer for the forthcoming World War I film, Journey's End, which you can check out above.
Based on RC Sherriff’s play and novel of the same name, Journey's End is set in March 1918 as C-Company, led by a war-weary Captain Stanhope (Sam Claflin), arrive in northern France to take its turn in the front-line trenches. Told that a German offensive is imminent Stanhope drowns his fears in whisky whilst officers (Paul Bettany, Stephen Graham, Tom Sturridge) and their cook (Toby Jones) attempt to distract themselves in their dugout with talk of food and life before war.
They are joined by Raleigh (Asa Butterfield), a young new officer fresh out of training excited about his first real posting, and a chance to serve under Stanhope. Raleigh’s naivety serves as a stark contrast to the other men’s impending fear as the tension rises and the attack draws ever closer.
Saul Dibb (The Duchess, Bullet Boy) directs and the film is released in the UK on February 2nd 2018.
