FIRSTSHOWING.NET: New US Trailer for 'Railway Children' Remake of a UK WWII Classic
August 18, 2022
""I can't talk about it, but I'm on a secret mission." Blue Fox has debuted a new official US trailer for the film The Railway Children Return, which already opened in the UK back in July. It's now opening in the US in late September. It's a "sort of sequel" / remake of the 1970 British film The Railway Children, about three children who move with their mother to Yorkshire. Jenny Agutter returns to her role as Bobbie from the original and is joined by Sheridan Smith, Tom Courtenay, and John Bradley. This one also follows a group of children who are evacuated to a Yorkshire village during the Second World War (to keep them safe from bombings), where they encounter a young American soldier who, like them, is far away from home. The cast of children also includes Beau Gadsdon, Eden Hamilton, Zac Cudby, KJ Aikens, Austin Haynes. It's described as "enchanting, moving, and heart-warming adventure for a new generation." The US release has taken "Return" out of the UK title and is going with simply Railway Children, which works because most US audiences probably don't know the original film. Already a hit in UK cinemas this summer."
