First Trailer and Poster for STARRED UP Starring Jack O’Connell, Ben Mendelsohn, and Rupert Friend

     January 24, 2014


The first trailer and poster have been released for the prison drama, Starred Up.  The movie stars Jack O’Connell (300: Rise of an Empire) as a young convict whose latest stint in prison is complicated by the fact that his father (Ben Mendelsohn) is a fellow inmate who’s trying to protect his violent, traumatized son.  I caught the movie at TIFF and quite enjoyed it.  This trailer doesn’t spoil the picture, but it doesn’t make it stand out either.  However, the eight British Independent Film Award nominations it racked up will hopefully bring the movie the attention it deserves.

Hit the jump to check out the U.K. trailer and poster.  Starred Up opens in the U.K. on March 21st; no U.S. release date has been announced.
