Jack O'Connell in 71

"Everybody's looking for that boy." Roadside Attractions has unveiled a new trailer for Yann Demange's thriller '71, starring Jack O'Connell as a soldier lost in the streets of Belfast in 1971. If you don't know that name yet, you better get used to it - Jack O'Connell is quickly on the rise, and he deserves it because he's incredibly talented. O'Connell stars in Angelina Jolie's Unbroken opening this month, as well as Starred Up which we featured recently. He's also outstanding in this film, '71, a very intense action-thriller that follows the 24 hours he's stuck in Belfast during the The Troubles. They've been slow-playing this film so that it can build off the buzz of Unbroken and Starred Up before release, but it's actually worth seeing. Fire this up.

Here's the official US trailer (with two posters beneath) for Yann Demange's '71, originally from Yahoo:

Yann Demange's film '71 takes place over a single night in the life of a young British soldier accidentally abandoned by his unit following a riot on the streets of Belfast in 1971. Unable to tell friend from foe, he must survive the night alone and find his way to safety. '71 is directed by Yann Demange, making his feature directing debut after work on TV shows like "Dead Set", "Criminal Justice" and "Top Boy". The screenplay was written by Gregory Burke. The film first premiered at the 2014 Berlinale Film Festival, and features a supporting cast including Sean Harris, Charlie Murphy, Paul Anderson, Sam Hazeldine, Killian Scott, David Wilmot and Richard Dormer. The film has played at many festivals since, and will also show at Sundance 2015. Roadside Attractions will release '71 in limited theaters starting on February 27th, 2015.

    I don't know that this actor is so 'incredibly talented' as quoted from above. I've heard about him and all the hype he's getting. Good for him as any actor sure needs that. However, I went and saw Starred Up and it, nor him, did much for me. The actor playing his father stood out much more for me. And the film was nothing compared to Bronson and nothing compared to Tom Hardy in that film. I was blown away by both the film and Hardy and knew Hardy was a major talent. I don't feel that way at all about O'Connell. He was adequate to me, nothing else. And his film was so derivative of Bronson it diluted it for me. Same as this '71. The whole Belfast Irish problem has been done many, many times. Like by Sheridan and Daniel Day Lewis years ago. And now this? Again? Myself, I've no interest. I'm also not buying the footage I've seen of the powder puff, 'inspirational' Unbroken by Jolie with this actor. I've heard the film is not very good. Very, very hagiographic in nature, which ruins the whole tale. But hey, I wish him the best and hope he becomes a big star or whatever the hell he wants to be. He just doesn't grab me a la Tom Hardy and others I could mention. We'll see. I wouldn't think this film, '71, will make a nickel here in the States. The super hero crowd isn't really interested in these kinds of overtly political films from another country. Again, we'll see and time will tell.
