Check out the official U.S. trailer for "Black 47," a gritty Irish revenge thriller set against the backdrop of the Great Potato Famine of 1847.

Directed by Irish filmmaker Lance Daly (Kisses, Life's a Breeze), the film stars Australian actor James Frecheville (Animal Kingdom, The Stanford Prison Experiment) as Feeney, a war-weary Irish soldier who, after fighting overseas for the British army, returns home to Ireland, only to discover his family and country have been decimated by violence and famine.

Shortly after arriving home, Feeney sets out to exact revenge against the British government. And as a result, they send a battle-hardened British army veteran (played by Hugo Weaving) to hunt him down.

Co-starring Jim Broadbent, Freddie Fox, Barry Keoghan, and Stephen Rea, "Black 47" is hitting U.S. theaters and VOD on September 28th.

synopsis:
One man's ruthless pursuit of justice plays out against the darkest chapter of Irish history in this riveting revenge thriller.

In 1847, battle-hardened soldier Feeney (James Frecheville) deserts the British army to return home to Ireland, where he finds his country ravaged beyond recognition by the Great Famine. When he discovers that his mother has died of starvation and his brother has been hanged by the British, something snaps, sending Feeney on a relentless quest to get even with the powers-that-be who have wronged both his family and his country. There is only one man who can stop Feeney's bloody crusade: disgraced British army veteran Hannah (Hugo Weaving), whose own loyalties may be more complex than they appear...
