Hello Claflin fans! Telegraph has released the first trailer for Journey’s End, the movie based on R. C. Sherriff’s play and stars Sam, Paul Bettany and Asa Butterfield. The movie is set to hit theaters February 2, 2018.

The first trailer has been released for the highly-anticipated war drama Journey’s End, the first film adaptation of R.C. Sherriff’s celebrated play since 1930.

The film casts Asa Butterfield as a baby-faced Second Lieutenant posted to northern France at the tail end of the First World War. There he encounters an old school friend played by Sam Claflin, whose traumatic experiences in the trenches have left him jaded and shell-shocked, leaving an immediate mark on Butterfield’s lead.

His journey is one of claustrophobic horror as he faces up to what could be his final days.

Following its UK premiere at this month’s London Film Festival, The Telegraph’s Tim Robey raved about its performances, noting that Claflin delivers “a commanding study in despair”, while similarly praising costar Paul Bettany.

The film marks the latest project by director Saul Dibb, of Bullet Boy and The Duchess fame, who has spoken about being drawn to the project by the honesty of Sherriff’s original play.

“I felt it just had this incredible ring of truth to it,” he said. “A really honest, really human account of what it was like to be there. Sherriff was a brilliant writer and he was writing from personal experience. We had the opportunity to make a very truthful account.”

Also starring Toby Jones, Stephen Graham and Tom Sturridge and featuring a script by Simon Reade, Journey’s End is released on February 2, 2018.
