The first trailer for 'England is Mine', the biopic about former Smiths singer Morrissey, has been revealed.

The film, which was originally titled 'Steven', tells the story of the iconic Mancunian musician's life before he formed The Smiths with Johnny Marr in the 1980s.

It stars Jack Lowden (Dunkirk, '71) as Morrissey and Jessica Brown Findlay (Downton Abbey) as his best friend, artist Linder Sterling.

It premieres at the Edinburgh Film Festival this weekend and hits cinemas on general release on August 4th.
