Journeyman: Trailer for Paddy Considine’s Latest

Paddy Considine and Jodie Whittaker star in Journeyman. Here's the first trailer...

This looks really, really good. Paddy Considine has directed one film thus far, the superb Tyrannosaur. For his second, Journeyman, he’s telling the story of a boxer who collapses after a particularly bruising fight, and consequently has to fight to regain his speech, his relationships, and his life.

Considine stars in the film too, alongside Jodie Whittaker, Anthony Welsh, Tony Pitts, and Paul Popplewell. And the first trailer and official synopsis have been released.

Here’s the trailer first…

And here’s the synopsis…

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. 

The film arrives in UK cinemas on February 16th 2018.
