THE JOURNEY is an inspiring, heartwarming and at times hilarious fictional account of the extraordinary story of two implacable enemies Ian Paisley (Timothy Spall) and Martin McGuiness (Colm Meaney), forced to take a short journey together in which they will take the biggest leap of faith and change the course of modern Irish and British history. It is at this moment that the future of Irish and British history is altered, as two sworn enemies put their past actions behind them and begin to forge a friendship that would lead to them being known as “The Chuckle Brothers."

DIRECTED BY: André Øvredal (Trollhunter)

Experienced coroner Tommy Tilden (Brian Cox) and his grown-up son Austin (Emile Hirsch) run a family-owned morgue and crematorium in Virginia. When the local Sheriff brings in an emergency case – an unknown female corpse nicknamed ‘Jane Doe’, found in the basement of a home where a multiple homicide took place – it seems like just another open-and-shut case. But as the autopsy proceeds, these seasoned professionals are left reeling as each layer of their inspection brings frightening new revelations. Perfectly preserved on the outside, Jane Doe’s insides have been scarred, charred and dismembered – seemingly the victim of a horrific yet mysterious ritualistic torture. As Tommy and Austin begin to piece together these gruesome discoveries, an unnatural force takes hold of the crematorium. While a violent storm rages above ground, it seems the real horrors lie on the inside…
