Ben Wheatley’s new horror In the Earth posters tease tomorrow’s trailer
Ahead of the full trailer release tomorrow, NEON has released the first set of posters for director Ben Wheatley’s upcoming pandemic horror film In the Earth. Each poster features an eerie and weird image of a cast member including Hayley Squires’ unnamed character having worms coming out of her mouth. The film had its world premiere earlier this year at the 2021 Sundance Film Festival. It is scheduled to arrived in theaters next month on April 30. Check out the full posters in the gallery 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 and A Field in England.
The horror film will star 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 Ben Wheatley. Andy Starke produced for Wheatley and Starke’s Rook Films alongside Tom Quinn and Jeff Deutchman who executive produced on behalf of NEON.
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.
