Netflix has unveiled a new trailer for their February release, The Ritual, starring Rafe Spall (The BFG), Robert James-Collier (Downtown Abbey), Arsher Ali (Four Lions), and Sam Troughton (The Hollow Crown). The intense trailer reveals a group of terrified friends as they make their way down off of a mountain after saying goodbye to one of their own.
The film centers on four old friends from college who set out to hike through the Scandinavian wilderness after the death of their best friend. When a wrong turn leads them into the wilderness, part of a Norse Legend, they are stalked by something evil.
David Bruckner directed the film which was written by BAFTA-nominated screenwriter Joe Barton (Humans, iBoy), based on Adam Nevill’s novel of the same name.
Imaginarium’s Jonathan Cavendish developed the project and produced alongside Richard Holmes. Will Tennant and Phil Robertson are overseeing and serve as executive producers with Andy Serkis, Moonriver’s Xavier Marchand, and Lara Thompson.
Witness The Ritual on Netflix on February 9, 2018.
