Sam Claflin stars in the heart-wrenching first trailer for WWI drama Journey's End
The first trailer for Journey's End, the new WWI drama starring Sam Claflin, has been unveiled. Click below to watch it:
Starring alongside Claflin are Asa Butterfield, Toby Jones, Tom Sturridge, Stephen Graham and Paul Bettany.
Set in March 1918, we follow C-Company, led by a war-weary Claflin's Captain Stanhope, which 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 and their cook attempt to distract themselves in their dugout with talk of food and life before war.
They are joined by Butterfield's Raleigh, 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.
The film has been directed by Saul Dibb, best known for work on Suite Francaise, it is adapted from R. C. Sheriff's play of the same name.
Journey's End will be released into UK cinemas on February 2nd next year.
