As huge fans of Sightseers and Kill List, we’re excited to see what Ben Wheatley has in store for us next. Wheatley is among the most interesting genre directors working today, and his next film, A Field in England, looks pretty insane. Drafthouse Films recently announced that they acquired North American distribution rights to the movie, but those in the UK will be able to see it starting on July 5th. A new teaser has been released, and it really ups the psychedelic factor. Enjoy!
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.[/callout]
