A new U.S. trailer has been released for "Journey's End," a British WWI drama that features an impressive ensemble cast led by Sam Claflin (The Hunger Games), Asa Butterfield (Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children), Toby Jones (Captain America), and Paul Bettany (The Avengers).

Focusing on the emotional and mental state of several British soldiers in battle, all of whom are facing the grim realities of trench warfare while occupying positions in the front-lines, the film is based on the 1928 Tony-winning play from legendary English screenwriter/playwright R.C. Sherriff (Goodbye Mr. Chips, The Invisible Man) which itself was adapted into a classic 1930 novel that Sherriff co-wrote with Vernon Bartlett.

Directed by Saul Dibb (Suite Francaise, The Duchess) and written for the screen by Simon Reade (Private Peaceful), "Journey's End" also co-stars Tom Sturridge (Far from the Madding Crowd) and Stephen Graham (Boardwalk Empire).

The film is hitting U.K. theaters this week on February 2nd and will then open in the U.S. on March 16th.

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...
