Lionsgate have today released the first official trailer for Their Finest –  and it is stunning. The WW2 comedy drama sees Sam portraying Tom Buckley, a writer hired to make morale boosting propaganda films during the blitz on London.

Synopsis:

1940, London, the Blitz; with the country’s morale at stake, Catrin (Gemma Arterton), an untried screenwriter, and a makeshift cast and crew, work under fire to make a film to lift the nation’s flagging spirits; and inspire America to join the war. Partnered alongside fellow screenwriter, Buckley (Sam Claflin) and eccentric actor Ambrose Hilliard (Bill Nighy), the trio set off to make a film that will warm the hearts of the nation and capture the imagination of the American population.

THEIR FINEST, based on Lissa Evans’ novel, ‘Their Finest Hour and a Half’, is a witty, romantic and moving portrayal of a young woman finding her way, and her voice, in the mayhem of war… and the movies!

Boasting an incredible British cast including Gemma Arterton, Bill Nighy, Richard E Grant, Jack Huston & Eddie Marsan, this heartwarming film hits UK cinemas on April 21st! Check out the gorgeous trailer below. Sam Claflin Fans were lucky enough to see a preview screening of the film at last year’s London Film Festival & we can assure you that it is an incredible film & Sam is utterly fantastic as always. You can watch our (spoiler free!) review HERE.

On November 7th, filming commenced on Sam’s newest project Journey’s End. Based on the 1928 play by R C Sherriff, it tells the story of life in the trenches during WW1. Sam will portray Captain Dennis Stanhope, a young commanding officer who has changed dramatically due to his time on the front line in France. The cast also includes Asa Butterfield, Paul Bettany, Tom Sturridge, Toby Jones & Robert Glenister. Below, we have written a synopsis & a description of some of the main characters so you can familiarise yourself with them!*

Synopsis: Set during the First World War, Journey’s End concerns the lives of a group of British officers on the front line and opens in a dugout in the trenches in France. Raleigh, a new eighteen-year-old officer, fresh out of English public school, joins the besieged company of his friend and cricketing hero Stanhope, and finds him dramatically changed…

Stanhope (Sam Claflin) – Commanding Officer of an infantry company. Tall, with dark hair, carefully brushed, his uniform, though old & war stained is well cut & cared for. He is good looking, rather from attractive features, than the healthy good looks of Raleigh. Although tanned from months in the open air, there is a pallor under his skin and dark shadows under his eyes.

On November 9th, Sam attended the opening of the new boutique store of designer Ermenegildo Zenga on London’s New Bond Street. The designer has previously styled him for shoots in magazines such as Zoo & it looks like Sam is a fan! As always, he looked incredible at the event, choosing a dark overcoat over a black double breasted suit & textured tie. And as it is almost Armistice Day, he also respectfully wore a poppy on his lapel. Sam is currently (& very poignantly for the time of year) filming Journey’s End, the film adaptation of R C Sherriff’s play, based on life in the trenches during WW1. And as such he is once again sporting a look reminiscent of the period, including that very fetching moustache! Check out some of the gorgeous photos from the event below, and you can find the rest in our Facebook album!

Congratulations Sam! We’re very proud of you and it was completely deserved :)

Sam is featured as one of four cover stars on the October 2016 edition of L’Officiel Hommes NL. As well as a stunning photo-shoot by Roger Rich, the magazine has a fantastic interview with Sam, which we have transcribed below. In it, he talks about his hopes for the future, his memories from the past & how life has changed since the birth of his & Laura’s Son in December 2015. Enjoy!

PLEASE CREDIT US IF USING OUR TRANSCRIPT OR SCANS – THANK YOU :)

Up Close & Claflin

The new James Bond. The new Hugh Grant. Sam Claflin (1986) has  heard all of the comparisons. The steady actor lets the compliments slip. There are more important things in the world. Acting for him ‘a job’, but one to which he is fully committed.

Sam Claflin has starred in The Riot Club, a take on student life in Oxford, in fantasy films like Pirates of the Caribbean, Snow White and the Huntsman and The Hunger Games, but also in romantic roles such as Me Before You and Love, Rosie. For others, his career sounds like a dream – and it is – though the actor remains with both feet firmly on the ground. Last summer he was both thirty and a father, making life suddenly feel different for the young Englishman. “I feel like an adult for the first time. I’ve started a new chapter in my life and have to remind myself that I have a responsibility.”

Will you always make different types of movies?

I always try to find new challenges. Much of my work until now has been suitable for the whole family. Now I want to explore new aspects of this profession to prove that I am more than what you think you know.

What kind of movies feel most natural to you?

Hard to say. I do not think I’m an action hero but I would have liked a try. At the same time I like to get down and dirty for a role, feel the real depth of it. I feel at ease when I continually push myself. That’s what I want to do more and more.

Some people see in you the new James Bond.

I think I speak for every Englishman, and basically for every man, when I say that it would be an absolute honor to play James Bond. It’s such a great character. But I’m not putting bets on me taking on that role. It would be wonderful but I keep focusing on other things.

You studied at the London Academy of Music and Dramatic Art; What was your most valuable lesson which you learnt there?

I learned so much there. It was the most valuable three years of my life. It taught me a lot about the whole business of film, politics and everything around it. Things of which I was unaware. It also made me realize that everyone approaches this profession differently. The main lesson is: be yourself, try not to emulate anybody. You work with different actors and directors, and they all approach the subjects differently. So be comfortable with whom you work with and what you do.

You also performed with the Royal Shakespeare Company. How was that?

It is not my strongest point. With all due respect to my former teachers, Shakespeare was not very well taught to us. That’s why I cherish the little warm feelings I do have for it. It’s something which I gradually grew to love with Drama, but I’m certainly not a natural talent in Shakespearean roles.
