Lionsgate UK presents acclaimed First World War film Journey’s End on Digital 1 June and DVD 4 June

Based on RC Sherriff’s play and novel of the same name Journey’s End is set in March 1918 as C-Company, led by a war-weary Captain Stanhope (Sam Claflin) arrives in northern France to take its turn in the front-line trenches. Told that a German offensive is imminent Stanhope drowns his fears in whisky whilst the officers (Paul Bettany, Stephen Graham, Tom Sturridge) and their cook (Toby Jones) attempt to distract themselves in their dugout with talk of food and life before war. They are joined by Raleigh (Asa Butterfield), a young new officer fresh out of training excited about his first real posting, and a chance to serve under Stanhope. Raleigh’s naivety serves as a stark contrast to the other men’s impending fear as the tension rises and the attack draws ever closer.

With an all-star British cast featuring Sam Claflin (The Hunger Games franchise), Asa Butterfield (The Space Between Us), Toby Jones (Atomic Blonde) Tom Sturridge (Mary Shelley), Stephen Graham (Film Stars Don’t Die in Liverpool) and Paul Bettany (Captain America: Civil War).

Directed by Bafta Award® nominee Saul Dibb (The Duchess).

Screenplay by Simon Reade (Private Peaceful).

Produced by Guy de Beaujeu and Simon Reade.

Based on the novel by R.C. Sheriff and Vernon Bartlett and the play by R.C. Sheriff.
