Watch: World War II Drama 'Railway Man' First Trailer with Colin Firth

September 10, 2013

The Railway Man

"War leaves a mark." After premiering at the 2013 Toronto International Film Festival, the World War II drama The Railway Man is slated to hit theaters in the United Kingdom on January 3rd, but we're not sure when it will hit the United States just yet. Now the first trailer for the film starring Colin Firth and Nicole Kidman is here, and it looks like quite the powerful drama. Firth plays a survivor of the infamous "Death Railway," after being captured as a British soldier in the war by the Japanese. Haunted by his past, he hopes to escape his terrible flashbacks by seeking revenge on the Japanese soldier responsible. Watch!

Here's the first trailer for Jonathan Teplitzky's The Railway Man from YouTube:

Jonathan Teplitzky directs The Railway Man from a script by Frank Cottrell Boyce (Millions) and first-time writer Andy Paterson, based on a memoir by Eric Lomax. Along with thousands of other British soldiers captured by the Japanese during the Second World War, Lomax (Colin Firth) was forced to work on the construction of the Thailand- Burma Railway, the so-called Death Railway. When a secret radio he had built was discovered, he was brutally tortured by a Japanese officer. With paralyzing flashbacks and dreams crippling his relationship with his wife (Nicole Kidman), he decides to seek revenge on his torturer. The film premiered at TIFF 2013, hits the UK on January 3rd, 2014, but does not have a US release yet. Good?

  • The Japanese were a brutal bunch of ballbags, suppose after getting melted at the end of World War 2 they mellowed out a bit. I'm sure this will probably be alright, it's a period drama with Colin Firth.
    Loved... Seem's pretty intense...
