In the wake of its premiere at the Toronto and London film festivals, Lionsgate UK has released the first trailer for the film adaptation of the acclaimed RC Sherriff WWI-set play “Journey’s End”.
Sam Claflin, Asa Butterfield, Paul Bettany and Toby Jones star in the story set in March 1918 as C-Company arrives in northern France to take its turn in the front-line trenches.
The war-weary group are joined by a young new officer on his first real posting – his naivete a contrast to the fear and rising tension of the others around him.
The film opens in U.K. cinemas on February 2nd. A U.S. distributor has yet to be announced.
