Watch: First US 'Railway Man' Trailer with Colin Firth & Nicole Kidman
Having already premiered at the 2013 Toronto International Film Festival, and opening in the United Kingdom last week, we've seen a couple international trailers for The Railway Man starring Colin Firth and Nicole Kidman. But now the film is preparing for it's release in the United States sometime this year, and the first domestic trailer for the drama has arrived. The film follows Colin Firth as a man looking for revenge years after being tortured by a Japanese military officer during World War II. There hasn't been tons of praise for this one, which is probably why it didn't shoot for an awards release last year. Watch now!
Here's the US trailer for Jonathan Teplitzky's The Railway Man, originally from Yahoo:
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, hit the UK on January 3rd, 2014, but does not have a US release date just yet.
