These are the first pictures of Colin Farrell kissing Hollywood actress Jessica Chastain in his new film.
The Dublin actor romantically snogs the Oscar nominee in Miss Julie, which he claimed filming was “the toughest time I’ve had in 15 years”.

Official pictures from the movie – which was shot in Castle Coole in Co Fermanagh last summer – also sees Colin in full period costume.
It sees Jessica, who plays the part of a upperclass daughter, using her position of power to try and encourage her father’s valet to seduce her.
However the power game quickly transforms itself into a lust-fuelled relationship with extremely tragic circumstances.

And it allows Colin – who is more known for his big-budget action roles – to show off his softer side in the €5million picture which will be released later this year.
Speaking about the film, the IFTA winner admitted “there was part of me that went, ‘Jesus, give me back a gun!'” because of its emotion.
“We all loved it but it was emotionally and physically ruining in a way,” he added.
“Just the subject matter and the incessant and mutual cruelty that’s expressed by these characters and the conveyance of power from one to another, back and forth.

“It’s very bleak and the first time I’ve done something where there’s no light at all, but I’d do it all over again.”
It is the second film that Colin has worked on in Ireland in the past 12 months, after recently finishing work on The Lobster in Co Kerry.
His love interest in that film was British actress Rachel Weisz, who stayed here for more than a month with James Bond husband Daniel Craig.
