A group of courageous soldiers must face the harsh realities of trench warfare in the international trailer for the British WWI drama "Journey's End," which boasts a strong ensemble cast that includes Sam Claflin (The Hunger Games), Asa Butterfield (Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children), Toby Jones (Captain America), Tom Sturridge (Far from the Madding Crowd), Stephen Graham (Boardwalk Empire) and Paul Bettany (The Avengers).

Based on the 1928 Tony-winning play from legendary English screenwriter/playwright R.C. Sherriff (Goodbye Mr. Chips, The Invisible Man) and the novel by Sherriff and Vernon Bartlett, the drama focuses on the emotional and mental state of several British soldiers in battle who are occupying positions in the front-line trenches.

Directed by English filmmaker Saul Dibb (Suite Francaise, The Duchess), "Journey's End" is currently scheduled to open in the U.K. on February 2nd.

synopsis:
March, 1918. C-company arrives to take its turn in the front-line trenches in northern France led by the war-weary Captain Stanhope (Sam Claflin). A German offensive is imminent, and the officers (Paul Bettany, Stephen Graham Tom Sturridge) and their cook (Toby Jones) distract themselves in their dugout with talk of food and their past lives. Stanhope, meanwhile, soaks his fear in whisky, unable to deal with his dread of the inevitable. A young new officer, Raleigh (Asa Butterfield), has just arrived, fresh out of training and abuzz with the excitement of his first real posting -- not least because he is to serve under Stanhope, his former school house monitor and the object of his sister’s affections. Each man is trapped, the days ticking by, the tension rising and the attack drawing ever closer...
