Watch Jack O'Connell in the Trailer for '71 - Which Looks Like The Raid in Belfast

Jack O'Connell made a ferocious leap into the big time with is peformance in Starred Up earlier in 2014 and he's got a lead role in Angelina Jolie's Unbroken. But before that, he's heading on a trip to Belfast.

'71 is the feature directing debut of Yann Demange and sees a British soldier accidentally left behind in Belfast in the year of the title. Which was not a great year to be a Brit in Belfast. The film is a taut thriller focussing on his attempts to survive one terrifying night in the city.

Here's the frenetic trailer.

It certainly looks pacy, and there's plenty of room for tense moments in a tale of one man's survival against a mob. In this case, the search seems to be led by young Martin McCann who played Bono himself in Killing Bono. And there are plenty of other familar faces - including Richard Dormer, David Wilmot and Calvary player Killian Scott.

To international audiences, this probably feels like a story in the vein of The Raid - a punchy tale of survival - but anything set during the troubles picks up some extra weight locally. Though early reviews suggest director Demange and writer Gregory Burke keep the film all but apolitical and critics opinions have been positive.

See '71 in cinemas in October 2014.
