Sam Claflin, Asa Butterfield in UK Trailer for Wwi Film 'Journey's End'

"We won't last five minutes if the Germans attack..." Lionsgate UK has unveiled a new trailer for a Wwi drama titled Journey's End, which just premiered at the Toronto and London Film Festivals this fall. The film is based on a seminal British play about Wwi, set mostly in a dugout in Aisne, France in 1918. The story is about a group of ragged British officers, led by the mentally disintegrating young officer Stanhope, who are awaiting their fate in this wretched place. The three officers are played by Paul Bettany, Stephen Graham, and Tom Sturridge, and the cast includes Sam Claflin as a Captain, plus Asa Butterfield as a young new officer; as well as Toby Jones, Robert Glenister, Oliver Dimsdale, and Miles Jupp. This looks like a solid, emotionally draining, riveting drama that is once again about the brutal horrors of war, specifically the trench warfare of Wwi. I really want to see this,

Lff 2017: ‘Journey’s End’ Review: Dir. Saul Dibb (2017)

Journey’s End review: Saul Dibb directs an all-star British cast in this, the fifth screen adaptation of the famous Rc Sheriff play from the early twentieth century.

Journey’s End review by Paul Heath.

Journey’s End review

Bringing an updated version of the seminal 1928 play Journey’s End by Rc Sheriff to the screen, one which has had the likes of Laurence Olivier treading the boards in it over the years, and the four other adaptations that have appeared one the big and small screen in the decades since, is not an easy feat, but Saul Dibb’s 2017 version is totally worthy of it existence, and comes to the UK following its world premiere at the Toronto International Film Festival last month.

The story is set 100 years ago during the first world war, the German and British sides at a stalemate, a position they’ve been in for well over a year.

Toronto Film Review: ‘Journey’s End’

Few stage staples from 90 years ago would easily translate to the screen today, yet R.C. Sherriff’s once near-ubiquitous “Journey’s End” proves potent as ever in this sturdy new adaptation from director Saul Dibb and writer-producer Simon Reade. While there’s little staginess about the endeavor, the preserved tight focus on a handful of British soldiers “waiting to be killed” in a trench near Wwi’s finish provides all the character and emotional involvement that was lacking in the more action-oriented recent “Dunkirk.” The latter’s success — plus next year’s centennial of the Great War’s close — could further boost a strong drama likely to benefit from solid reviews.

A captain wounded at Passchendaele himself, Sherriff drew on three years’ service experience to write his greatest triumph (which he subsequently turned into a novel, also a source here). Premiering in 1928 with 21-year-old Laurence Olivier in a breakthrough role — one he foolishly declined to repeat in

Toronto Film Festival: 12 Hot Titles Likely to Spark Bidding Wars

Toronto Film Festival: 12 Hot Titles Likely to Spark Bidding Wars
The Toronto Film Festival isn’t just an essential stop for Oscar hopefuls. There’s also an active film market that results in plenty of all-night bidding wars. This year, studios and distributors will make the trek across the border, on the hunt for films that can be arthouse hits or awards winners. Here are 12 films that will have companies breaking out their checkbooks.

Hostiles (pictured above)

Sales Agent: WME, CAA (U.S.), Bloom (International)

Director: Scott Cooper

Cast: Christian Bale, Rosamund Pike, Ben Foster

Why Buyers Are Circling: This Western tops the list of distributors making the trip up North, because Bale is one of the few actors who can draw crowds. His last effort with Cooper, the gritty crime drama “Out of the Furnace,” was more admired than watched, but Bale’s involvement guarantees that screenings will be packed. Strong reviews out of Telluride, where it bowed last weekend, will

Atypical: Netflix's great new comedy drama about autism

Catherine Pearson Aug 11, 2017

New series Atypical lands on Netflix today. Here's a spoiler-free look at why it's one of the best new comedy dramas around...

This article contains narrative references from early in the series but no plot spoilers.

Netflix’s new series Atypical is a lovable comedy drama with well-rounded characters and a wonderful central performance from Keir Gilchrist as Sam, the latest autistic protagonist to hit the small screen.

On the big screen, the representation of characters with autism (often used interchangeably with Asperger Syndrome in fiction) leans heavily on the idea of the mathematical genius. In heart-warming 2015 film X+Y, Asa Butterfield’s character Nathan is an academically gifted teenager who takes part in an international mathematics competition.
