In addition, a new image from the film has been released, which you can see above. A theatrical and VOD release is planned for 2013.

This is another big piece of distribution news for the Wheatley thriller; it was announced earlier today that the film would be receiving an unprecedented release in the U.K., where it will debut in theaters, on VOD and on free TV all at the same time.

England : 1648 AD. A small group of deserters flee from a raging battle through an overgrown field. They are captured by two men: O'Neil and Cutler. O'Neil (Michael Smiley), an alchemist, forces the group to aid him in his search to find a hidden treasure that he believes is buried in the field. Crossing a vast mushroom circle, which provides their first meal, the group quickly descend into a chaos of arguments, fighting and paranoia, and, as it becomes clear that the treasure might be something other than gold, they slowly become victim to the terrifying energies trapped inside the field. A Field In England is a psychedelic trip into magic and madness from Ben Wheatley - award-winning director of Down Terrace, Kill List and Sightseers.
