SAM CLAFLIN, ASA BUTTERFIELD AND PAUL BETTANY STAR IN JOURNEY’S END
Lionsgate has released brand new artwork for the upcoming movie, JOURNEY’S END, which you can see above ahead of its London Film Festival Gala Screening.
The film boasts a superb cast in the form of Sam Claflin (The Hunger Games film franchise, My Cousin Rachel), Asa Butterfield (The Space Between Us), BAFTA AWARD® NOMINEE Toby Jones (Atomic Blonde), Tom Sturridge (Mary Shelley), BAFTA AWARD® NOMINEE Stephen Graham (Film Stars Don’t Die in Liverpool) and BAFTA AWARD® NOMINEE Paul Bettany (Captain America: Civil War).
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) arrives 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 the 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.
In the director’s chair for this one is BAFTA AWARD® NOMINEE Saul Dibb (Suite Française, The Duchess) who has brought to life a screenplay by Simon Reade (Private Peaceful). The film is based on the play by RC Sherriff and the novel by RC Sherriff and Vernon Bartlet.
Journey’s End will arrive in cinemas 4th February 2018.
