Rook Films released a new trailer for director Ben Wheatley‘s latest offering, titled A Field in England, which is set for cinemas, VOD, TV, and DVD and Blu Ray in the UK July 5th. The film tells a surrealistic horror tale about a group of soldiers during the English Civil War. Judging from the latest trailer, it looks like it’s going to be quite a trip indeed, one that I cannot wait to embark on.
Drafthouse Films picked up the North American rights and will be releasing the film later this year. Hit the jump for the latest trailer and synopsis and click here to view the original trailer.
England during the English Civil War. A small group of deserters flee from a raging battle through an overgrown field. They are captured by two men: O’Neil and Cutler. O’Neil (Michael Smiley), an alchemist, forces the group to aid him in his search to find a hidden treasure that he believes is buried in the field. Crossing a vast mushroom circle, which provides their first meal, the group quickly descend into a chaos of arguments, fighting and paranoia, and, as it becomes clear that the treasure might be something other than gold, they slowly become victim to the terrifying energies trapped inside the field.
