With the trailer for Heard’s next movie In the Fire now officially released, her doctor ignites a war of science versus religion with the local priest who believes the boy is possessed by the Devil. Check it out below:

“One of her first films since? No. She filmed this before the trial. She hasn’t worked since then. Gee, I wonder why,” one user concludes, with another remarking: “This movie made like 800 Euros for its entire release so far… into the dumpster fire.”

Other users wonder how the movie will fare in the wider film release schedule. “Trying to sell this as a horror flick now? Right up there with Pumpkinhead…” one states. “I’m still confused about the title of the article. Is defending the devil supposed to be a good thing? Sounds evil to me. Who would want to defend the devil?” another user agrees.

No matter how well the movie performs, In the Fire marks a significant turning point for Amber Heard, following the events involving Johnny Depp.
