In The Earth Trailer: Take the trip in new Ben Wheatley horror pic
Following its world premiere at this year’s Sundance Film Festival and a slew of character posters for the film, NEON has debuted the first trailer for the latest horror film from writer/director Ben Wheatley (Kill List), In The Earth, inviting audiences to take a trip in to its mind-bending narrative. The trailer can be viewed in the player below!
In the Earth is expected to deliver a timely story set in a world that searches for a cure to a disastrous virus as a scientist and park scout venture deep in the forest for a routine equipment run. Through the night, their journey becomes a terrifying voyage through the heart of darkness, the forest coming to life around them.
The English filmmaker is no stranger to the horror genre as he was first known for his breakout works on psychological horror films such as Kill List, A Field in England and a segment of The ABCs of Death. The film stars Joel Fry (Yesterday, Game of Thrones), Ellora Torchia (The Split, Midsommar), Hayley Squires (I, Daniel Blake) and BAFTA Award Winner Reece Shearsmith (Inside No. 9, Psychoville).
In the Earth is written and directed by Wheatley, with Andy Starke producing for Wheatley and Starke’s Rook Films alongside Tom Quinn and Jeff Deutchman, who executive produced on behalf of NEON. The film is set to hit theaters on April 23.
This project marks Wheatley’s latest film following last year’s film adaptation of Rebecca. He is currently working on the upcoming sequel of Jason Statham’s The Meg which will be based on second book of Steve Alten’s novel series titled The Trench.
