I’ve seen fan-made trailers like this before, but most never see the light of day, but this bit of magic compliments of Julian House at Intro-Partnership is what Cinephiles, like myself, drool over. This trailer alone, is enough to warrant a screening at The Cinefamily. It has that 60’s psychedelica/horror vibe and when you read the synopsis you’ll understand why.
A Field in England is directed by Ben Wheatley from a screenplay co-written by Wheatley and Amy Jump. The story follows a small group of deserters fleeing from a raging battle through an overgrown field. As they are captured by O’Neil, an alchemist, they are forced to aid him in finding a hidden treasure he believes is buried in the field. Crossing a vast mushroom circle, which provides their first meal, the group descends into a chaos of arguments, fighting and paranoia as it becomes clear the treasure might not simply be gold. The film opens in the UK starting July 5th and the United States later this year.
