We are pleased to launch an exclusive first look at Timothy Spall and Colm Meaney in the UK poster for The Journey – the story of two of Northern Ireland’s political forces, loyalist Ian Paisley and former Ira Commander Martin McGuinness, forced together over the final peace agreement, who reluctantly begin to form a bond.
The poster in which Spall looks uncannily like how Ben Stiller would look in his dotage depicts both men in their stature of power yet divided by the title, a reference to the division of Ireland as it stands, in both its political and religious beliefs.
The Hole and Killing Bono director, Nick Hamm, takes the helm to bring to life a script from screenwriter and former journalist, Colin Bateman. Joining Meaney and Spall is somewhat of a stellar cast with Toby Stephens (Believe, »

[This story contains spoilers from Sunday's series finale of Starz's Black Sails.]
Not a story of pirates saving their paradise, or finding buried treasure, or even fighting a massive battle against those who threatened their lifestyle. Instead, it was a story about two legendary men, their opposing world views and the bond they shared that became poisoned over time. Black Sails was a story about Captain Flint (Toby Stephens) and "Long" John Silver (Luke Arnold).
After four seasons of an unlikely partnership-turned-friendship, the two men were at odds »

The Legendary TV-produced drama, which was ordered to series last June and is set to premiere in 2018, will take its cues from the original ’60s series and follow the Robinson clan as they are forced to come together in a time of crisis, stranded light years from their intended destination.
"I know it will take a miracle for these two to work things out." IFC Films has debuted a trailer for an indie drama titled The Journey, telling a fictional account of "an impromptu, detour-filled car ride through the Scottish countryside" where two opposing politicians realize they're more alike than different. Set in 2006, amidst the ongoing, decades-long conflict in Northern Ireland, Timothy Spall plays the British loyalist Ian Paisley, and Colm Meaney plays former Ira leader Martin McGuinness dedicated to reunification. The cast includes Toby Stephens as Tony Blair, plus Freddie Highmore, Catherine McCormack, Ian Beattie, and John Hurt in one of his final roles. I'm interested in this to see the two different perspectives and what insight each gains from each other, but also for the powerful performances from these fine actors. Here's the first official trailer for Nick Hamm's The Journey, direct from YouTube (via Tmb): »
