Kenneth Branagh’s upcoming period drama Belfast will arrive in cinemas in November, Universal has announced.

Although Kenneth Branagh’s next film to be released was set to be the delayed Death On The Nile, which he finished last year, that’s no longer the case. Belfast, which he has both written and directed, will be released in cinemas later this year on November 12th, it has been announced, preceding the release of the much-delayed Death On The Nile by some three months.

The film, set in the 1960s,  tells the story of one boy’s childhood during the tumult of life in Northern Ireland, where the filmmaker grew up. Focus Features is handling release duties in the US and Universal is managing worldwide territories. What’s more, we have a trailer to check out too.

In front of the camera, Caitriona Balfe, Judi Dench, Jamie Dornan, Ciaran Hinds and 10-year-old Jude Hill will appear. Dornan and Balfe will play Hill’s parents with Dench and Hinds featuring as their ‘sharp-witted’ grandparents, something we’re already looking forward to.

Here’s that trailer…
