Journey’s End – UK February 02, 2018


 Speaking of our dearest British chap Sam Claflin, you can also check out new character posters and also a new trailer for his war drama JOURNEY’S ENDwhich is out in Europe next week exactly 100 years after the events of the Spring Offensive which it depicts! He plays heroic captain Stanhope in the big screen adaptation of the famous theatre play by R.C. Sherriff alongside cast that also includes Paul Bettany, Asa Butterfield and  Tom Sturridge.

Sam Claflin leads his soldiers into battle




1918. A dugout in the trenches near Saint-Quentin, northern France. Six soldiers from a British Army infantry company have four short days left before they climb over the top and charge, hopelessly, helplessly, into the waiting, heavily armed, enemy lines. It’s obvious suicide. The men know it. They feel it in their bones. And they spend their last four days on Earth shifting between quiet contemplation, drunken rage, recrimination and eventual resignation — always undercut and underpinned by profound, and profoundly moving, brotherly love.

Saul Dibb directed the WW1 movie


The movie was shot to mark First World War Centenary!
