Optimum Releasing have released the movie trailer for 28 Weeks Later and The American screenwriter Rowan Joffe‘s directorial debut, an adaptation of Graham Greene‘s 1938 novel Brighton Rock. The book was first adapted to the screen in 1947 in a movie starring Richard Attenborough. This time around Joffe has updated the setting to the 1960’s. The story follows “the headlong fall of Pinkie, a razor-wielding disadvantaged teenager with a religious death wish.” The film premiered at the Toronto International Film Festival in September to mixed response. Sam Riley (Control) stars as Pinkie, and the film co-stars Helen Mirren (The Queen), John Hurt, Andy Serkis, and Andrea Riseborough.
