Netflix has dropped the trailer and release date for the upcoming historical drama The Dig, featuring Carey Mulligan and Ralph Fiennes.
You can add something to your January watch-list this morning, as Netflix has announced that The Dig, its upcoming WWII-era period drama, will be arriving in cinemas on January 15th before making its bow on the streaming service on the 29th.
In The Dig, Carey Mulligan plays a wealthy widow who procures the services of would-be archaeologist Ralph Fiennes to excavate burial mounds on her extensive estate. The film’s events are a retelling of the renowned excavation of Sutton Hoo. The pair make a surprising discovery, rendered even more resonant in the face of looming war as Germany invades Poland.
The film was originally set to star Nicole Kidman before Mulligan stepped in, and was due to be a BBC production before Netflix took the reins.
You can catch the trailer below ahead of the film’s debut next month.
