The Dig Trailer

"Do you think there's something beneath?" Of course there is! Netflix has unveiled an official trailer for The Dig, an indie drama from actor / director Simon Stone. The film is set in the late 1930s just before World War II in England. A wealthy widow hires an amateur archaeologist to excavate the burial mounds on her estate, leading to the historic discovery of Sutton Hoo and an undisturbed ship burial. The site is important in understanding the Anglo-Saxon kingdom of East Anglia & the early Anglo-Saxon period, as it illuminates a period that lacks historical documentation. The Dig stars Carey Mulligan and Ralph Fiennes, along with Lily James, Johnny Flynn, Ben Chaplin, Ken Stott, Archie Barnes, and Monica Dolan. This looks quite good, and all those RAF planes roaring overhead make it that much more gripping. View below.

Here's the official trailer (+ poster) for Simon Stone's The Dig, direct from Netflix's YouTube:
