Acclaimed auteur Werner Herzog takes viewers into the red-hot magma-filled craters of some of the world’s most active and astonishing volcanoes in his new documentary “Into the Inferno.”

Accompanied by volcanologist and co-director Clive Oppenheimer (who he met ten years ago while filming “Encounters at the End of the World”), the duo take an unforgettable journey across the globe, from Antarctica, to the hottest desert in the world in Ethiopia, to Iceland, and even to the generally inaccessible center of North Korea, to visit some of the world’s most scared volcanoes. A new visually stunning trailer and poster have just been released by Netflix. Check them out below.

“Volcanoes could not care less about what we are doing up here,” Herzog says in the trailer, and with that offers not only an in-depth exploration of volcanoes across the globe but also an examination of the belief systems that human beings have created around the fiery phenomena.

The documentary premiered to acclaim at the Telluride and Toronto Film Festival, with IndieWire’s David Ehrlich calling it “a fiery reminder why we shouldn’t take [Herzog] for granted,” in his B+ review.

“Into the Inferno” opens in theaters in New York and Los Angles, and launches globally on Netflix, on October 28.
