Days after the movie first made waves with its premiere at the Toronto International Film Festival
, Jonathan Teplitzky's The Railway Man
, starring Colin Firth and Nicole Kidman, has debuted its first international trailer.
Based on Eric Lomax's autobiography, Firth plays Lomax, an engineer with a passion for trains who is captured by the Japanese during World War II and sent to work on the brutal Burma-Siam railroad where he was repeatedly tortured and interrogated.
Although it will be released in the United Kingdom by Lionsgate on January 3, 2014, there are a number of distributors currently bidding on the film's North American distribution rights.
