First Trailer for Idris Elba-starring Thriller ‘BEAST’ Promises a Fearsome Fight for Survival

Universal Pictures has just dropped the first trailer for visceral, experiential filmmaker Baltasar Kormákur’s (Everest, 2 Guns and Contraband) pulse-pounding new thriller, Beast starring Idris Elba (Fast & Furious Presents: Hobbs & Shaw, The Suicide Squad).

Directed by Kormákur, from a screenplay by Ryan Engle (Rampage, Non-Stop) adapted from an original story by Jaime Primak Sullivan, Elba plays Dr. Nate Daniels, a recently widowed husband who returns to South Africa, where he first met his wife, on a long-planned trip with their daughters to a game reserve managed by Martin Battles (Sharlto Copley – Ted K, Maleficent), an old family friend and wildlife biologist. But what begins as a journey of healing jolts into a fearsome fight for survival when they find themselves hunted by a hulking rogue lion intent on proving that the savannah has but one apex predator.

Iyana Halley (The Hate U Give, “This is Us”) plays Daniels’ 18-year-old daughter, Meredith, and Leah Sava Jeffries (“Rel”, “Empire”) plays his 13-year-old, Norah.

Beast is produced by Will Packer, the blockbuster producer of Girls Trip, the Ride Along franchise, and ten movies that have opened No. 1 at the U.S. box office, including Night School, No Good Deed and Think Like a Man, by James Lopez, president of Will Packer Productions, and by Baltasar Kormákur.

Beast will bow in theaters this August 19, 2022 and, in the meantime, we’ll leave you with the first trailer that proves that sometimes the rustle in the bushes actually is a monster.
