The official UK Suffragette film poster starring Carey Mulligan, Helena Bonham Carter and Meryl Streep has been unveiled.

Posing against a backdrop of the Suffragette Colours, the leading ladies tell the story of the ordinary British women at the turn of the last century who risked everything in the fight for equality and the right to vote.

The colours - purple for dignity, white for purity, and green for hope - were incorporated by suffragettes into banners, flags, rosettes, badges and jewellery.

The new poster comes as the release date has been brought forward by three weeks to 12 October.

The new date makes it the first Monday following the film's European Premiere as the Opening Night of the BFI London Film Festival on 7 October.

Suffragette is an intense drama that tracks the story of the foot soldiers of the early feminist movement as they fought for the right to vote. The character of Maud, played by Carey, is one such foot soldier and the story of her fight for dignity is described as both heart-breaking and inspirational.

Suffragette opens in cinemas nationwide on 12th October 2015.
