New A Field In England Trailer Online
And a poster for the Cavaliering caper

Boy, are we looking forward to A Field In England. Judging by its new trailer, Ben Wheatley's Civil War enigma looks trippier than a bag of space cayotes. Its loose camera work and those long bits where a befopped Michael Smiley gazes eerily into the camera makes it an early contender for Presuming Ed's period piece of the year. Empire's too, as you can probably tell from that four-star endorsement.



If that's all too disorientating for your Tuesday afternoon, stabilise your mind with a look at its new poster, also fresh in from Team Wheatley. But what is the significance of that giant red orb, also a feature of the trailer? Does it signify some kind of coming apocalypse, like Melancholia, or is it all a hallucination? Answers on a parchment and buried in a field, please.


A Field In England features Richard Glover, Peter Ferdinando and Reece Shearsmith as survivors of a Civil War battle captured by Michael Smiley's alchemist and his sidekick Ryan Pope, and put to work helping him dig up a mysterious treasure trove. From there, another trove - this time of magic mushrooms - takes things in a seriously bendy direction.

It'll be released simultaneously in cinemas, on DVD, on free TV and on VoD, a first for a UK release. It's all happening on July 5.
