Right now chances are you have no idea who Jack O Connell is.

Next year, however, the young British actor could already be a household name. He’s got a supporting role in the sweaty-man epic 300 Rise of an Empire and will headline Angelina Jolie’s award season contender (and hopefully simply good movie) Unbroken.

Quite a bit of the hype surrounding O'Connell stems from his reportedly very intense performance in the British prison drama Starred Up, which premiered at the Toronto Film Festival last year.

Now a trailer for the movie has arrived which allows us, mere mortals, to have a sneaky peak at the fine performance of the man ourselves.


and the great (The Place Beyond The Pines) co-star.

In the UK Starred Up will be released March 21. No US release date has yet been announced.
