Trailer for the Damned United released

The trailer for The Damned United, based on David Peace's bestselling novel of the same title, has been released on the internet. The film tells the story of legendary manager Brian Clough's disastrous 44 day spell in charge of Leeds United.

Michael Sheen, best known for his scene stealing performance as Tony Blair in the Queen, plays Old Big 'Ead and has the European Cup winning manger's accent and the mannerisms off to a tee. But already comparisons are being made between the depth and darkness of the book and the film's trailer which doesn't seem to convey the same qualities. The Damned United is released on March 27 so you can make your own mind up.
