Lionsgate Home Entertainment has announced that it will release Saul Dibb’s Journey’s End on Blu-ray on 4th June.
Based on RC Sherriff’s play and novel of the same name, Journey’s End is set in March 1918, during World War One.
Starring Sam Claflin, Paul Bettany, Asa Butterfield, Toby Jones and Stephen Graham, the film follows C-Company, led by the war-weary Captain Stanhope, as it arrives in northern France to take its turn on the frontline.
After hearing that a German onslaught is imminent, the company dig in and prepare for the worst. Stanhope drowns his fears in whisky whilst the officers and their cook attempt to distract themselves in their trenches with talk of food and life before war. They are joined by Raleigh, a young new officer fresh out of training excited about his first real posting, and a chance to serve under Stanhope. As the attack draws closer, Raleigh’s naivety serves as a stark contrast to the other men’s impending fear as the tension rises.
