Sky is giving its customers the chance to catch a sneak preview of the upcoming Colin Firth drama 'The Railway Man'.

The film - based on the best-selling memoir of World War II veteran Eric Lomax - tells the tale of his incarceration in a Japanese labour camp.

Lomax - played by Firth - spent years in captivity and was forced to work on the notorious Death Railway in Thailand.

Decades after his release, he remains haunted by his past experiences. However, new wife Patti (Nicole Kidman) is determined to free her husband of his demons - at least until she starts uncovering the truth about Eric’s past.

'The Railway Man' - which is a Certificate 12A film - hits UK cinema screens on January 10th 2014.

However, Sky subscribers can watch the critically acclaimed movie weeks before its premiere at one of a number of special screenings on Tuesday December 17th.

The film is being shown in 25 towns and cities across the UK, including Belfast, Bristol, Cardiff, Dublin, Leeds, Liverpool and Glasgow.

Tickets are allocated on a first-come, first-served basis, with Sky customers required to register by 5pm on December 17th.
