Whatever your views on war, innocence will always be lost on both sides. In Journey’s End, we capture that innocence lost in the trenches of World War One. After a very strong response from the London Film Festival premiere, Lionsgate Films has now released the first UK Trailer. Watch young deteriorate the brutality of trench warfare, but never forget their brave souls.
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 the 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.
Journey’s End will be released in the UK and Ireland from 2nd February 2018. The movie stars Sam Claflin, Asa Butterfield, Toby Jones, Tom Sturridge, Stephen Graham and Paul Bettany.
