After a successful festival run and an unusual launch in the UK that saw the film made available simultaneously across literally every available distribution platform simultaneously, Ben Wheatley's A Field In England
arrives on US shores with a February 7th VOD and theatrical release from Drafthouse Films.
The story takes place during the Civil War in 17th-Century England and follows a small group of deserters fleeing from a raging battle through an overgrown field. They are captured by an alchemist (Michael Smiley), who 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.
The new release brings with it new poster art - to the left - and a new trailer, which you can take a look at below. And, yes, the film is every bit as weird as the trailer promises.
