We’ve seen many an acting heavyweight enter the ‘boxing drama’ arena. Robert De Niro. Jake Gyllenhaal.
Now it’s the turn of The Girl With All The Gifts actor Paddy Considine. Following up his terrific directorial debut Tyrannosaur, Studiocanal have released a rather emotional first trailer for ‘Journeyman’, as he stars alongside the new Doctor Who Jodie Whittaker.
The film is released across the UK on 16th February 2018.
‘Journeyman tells the story of middleweight boxing champion Matty Burton (Paddy Considine). After winning a punishing title defense on points, Matty collapses at home. The journey towards regaining his speech, movement and memory will be the toughest fight he’ll ever face, and the prize could not be greater, for his relationship with his wife Emma (Jodie Whittaker) and baby daughter Mia are on the line… Journeyman is a powerful and beautiful story about loss and, ultimately, triumph. It’s about our identity, and how in life we sometimes have to dig deep into our soul to discover who we really are.’
