A total first here in the UK is the announcement that 'Sightseers' and 'Kill List' director Ben Wheatley's new horror offering 'A Field in England' will receive a multi format release which will cross the whole board. On Friday 5 July here in the UK the movie will be unleashed in theatres, on DVD, on TV and VOD all simultaneously. Film4, Picturehouse Entertainment, 4DVD, Film4 Channel and the BFI Distribution Fund will all be teaming up to bring the movie to audience members in any format they choose to watch it. It's a bold move and will be very interesting to see how it works and how successful the release becomes. It could definitely be a move towards a whole new era of movie distribution. Julian Barratt ('The Mighty Boosh'), Reece Shearsmith ('The League of Gentlemen', 'The Cottage'), Peter Ferdinando, Ryan Pope, Richard Glover and Michael Smiley ('Spaced') all star. A new still, featuring Reece Shearsmith can be viewed below.
"In the war-torn English countryside in 1648, a small group of deserters flee the raging battle through an overgrown field. They are captured and forced to help one of their captors in his search to find hidden treasure he believes is buried in the field. The group descends into a chaos of arguments, fighting, and paranoia, and as it becomes clear that the treasure might be something other than gold, they gradually become victim to the terrifying energies trapped inside the field."
