Ben Wheatley’s In the Earth Teaser Trailer

In the Earth - Still 1

This week the Sundance Film Festival has officially unveiled their 2021 line-up, which has also prompted some initial trailers to be released for a handful of noteworthy films premiering at the fest. Among them is a brand new horror movie from Ben Wheatley, apparently shot during the COVID-19 pandemic and revolving around a man trying to reach a remote research station during a deadly viral outbreak. Although the first teaser does not reveal much, it definitely looks like a welcome return to folk horror for Wheatley that should appease anyone who was disappointed with his recent Rebecca remake. In the Earth stars Joel Fry (Yesterday), Ellora Torchia (Midsommar), Hayley Squires (I, Daniel Blake) and Reece Shearsmith (Inside No. 9) and it premieres at Sundance next month. Check out the teaser trailer after the jump and see what you think.
