Red Joan: Judi Dench and Sophie Cookson star in official trailer and key art

The official trailer and key art have been released for director Trevor Nun’s new film Red Joan.

The film stars Judi Dench (Skyfall), Sophie Cookson (Kingsman: The Secret Service), Stephen Campbell Moore (The Child in Time), Tom Hughes (Victoria), Ben Miles (The Crown) and Tereza Srbova (Eastern Promises).

Take a look at the trailer below:

Red Joan is produced by David Parfitt (My Week with Marilyn).

The year is 2000 and Joan Stanley (Dench) is living in contented retirement in suburbia at the turn of the millennium. Her tranquil life is suddenly disrupted when she’s arrested by MI5 and accused of providing intelligence to Communist Russia.

Cut to 1938 where Joan is a Cambridge physics student who falls for young communist Leo Galich and through him, begins to see the world in a new light.

Working at a top-secret nuclear research facility during WWII, Joan comes to the realisation that the world is on the brink of mutually assured destruction. Confronted with an impossible question – what price would you pay for peace? – Joan must choose between betraying her country and loved ones or saving them.

Alongside the trailer, the one-sheet and quad posters have been released. You can see them in our gallery below:

Red Joan will be released in UK cinemas on 19th April 2019.
