I caught Jonathan Teplitzky's The Railway Man at the Toronto Film Festival and despite the fact it's another traditionally told WWII period piece, there's an elegance to its telling and the performances from all involved -- Colin Firth, Jeremy Irvine, Hiroyuki Sanada, Tanroh Ishida and Nicole Kidman -- are quite good as it tells a story of revenge, retribution and reconciliation.

The film is set to hit theaters in the UK on January 1, while Lionsgate has yet to confirm a 2014 release date and today a new trailer and a batch of five character posters have made their way online.

You can check out the trailer and international theatrical poster below and the character posters on the second page. You can also read my full, "B" review of the film right here.

Here's a snippet from that review:

Some stories deserve their time on screen and there's nothing wrong with a well-told, directed and acted story that manages to move and enlighten us and I'm not sure The Railway Man could have been told any better. It obviously comes with years of World War II stories in front of it and serves as something of a true story cousin to 1957's The Bridge on the River Kwai.

As one of the characters says in the film, "war leaves a mark", and the mark the second World War left on the whole of humanity is one that will never wear away. What's truly amazing are the number of stories that continue to come out of such a dark period in human history, many that can actually serve as uplifting just as this one does.

    Lionsgate? I heard somehwere that Weinstein had picked it up. Guess they must of been wrong, but it sure looks like a weinstein movie.

    I really enjoyed Jeremy Irvine in War Horse and glad to see he's doing something else. The film looks quite interesting and I'd love to see Jeremy Irvine do more stuff like this

    So a grittier Bridge Over The Rive Kwai?
