Olivia Colman, star of The Crown, Heartstopper and many, many other things, has a new film on the way, and a first-look image and its release date have just been revealed.

Joyride stars the actress as a solicitor named Joy who, alongside a baby, finds herself in the back seat of a taxi that's been hijacked by a 12-year-old boy. The boy in question, Mully, had a wad of cash with him and is desperate to get as far away from his father as possible.

But as this unlikely pair journey across Ireland, the dramatic circumstances of their meeting slowly give way to a growing friendship between them, as they help each discover what they were both missing in their lives.
