Last night at the glorious Picturehouse Central in London we attended the speical fan screening to mark the release of Saul Dibb’s latest film, Journey’s End. The World War 1 drama stars Sam Claflin, Paul Bettany, Asa Butterfield, Stephen Graham, and the wonderful Toby Jones. Butterfeld, Dibb and the writer Simon Reade and producer Guy de Beaujeu spoke to us on the red carpet. The young actor also sat down with the resplendent host of Chelsea Pensioners.
The film is based on RC Sherriff’s seminal British play about WW1, set in a dugout in Aisne in 1918. It is the story of a group of British officers, led by the mentally disintegrating young officer Stanhope, variously awaiting their fate. The mixture of burgeoning new talent with some accomplished actors allows the inherent drama to come naturally to the fore.
Asa Butterfield talked about this being the most mature role in his career so far, and how he and the other cast bonded as one unit. He also talked about the immersive nature of shooting the film on location, and how that helped the performances.
The film is released on the 2nd of February 2018, Colin Hart and Scott Davis were on the carpet last night – here’s how they got on.
