The official The beast The trailer comes as the survival thriller genre has grown in popularity over the past six years since The ghost and The Martian dominated in Oscar nominations, with the former earning three wins. Although no genre release has since garnered nominations for similar prestige awards, many have gone on to achieve critical and commercial success, including Blake Lively with Blake Lively The shallows and alligator thriller produced by Sam Raimi Crawl. The first one The beast The trailer points to more of the same thrills as in the later examples, as Elba and her family must not only face the elements of the South African game reserve, but a vengeful lion as well.

Interesting way, The beast isn’t director Baltasar Kormákur’s first venture into the survival thriller genre after helming both films based on true stories Everest and Adrift, the former of which received positive reviews while the latter divided reviews. The official The beast The trailer shows a beautiful return to the genre for the Icelandic filmmaker as he uses the vast and diverse terrain of the film’s setting for a tense game of cat and human and thrillingly teases Elba’s transition from a modest family man to a total survivalist. The expectation of The beast is nearly complete as the film is set to hit theaters on August 19th.
