Who would win in a fight… A Lion or Idris Elba? It’s not a question we often ask ourselves over dinner, but it’s a question that Beast will gladly answer. Take a look behind the scenes of Idris Elba’s new pulse-pounding thriller Beast, a film that’ll redefine how we look at Lions. To celebrate Beast‘s upcoming release, Universal Pictures have shared a brand new featurette that dives into the making of this epic battle between man and beast. Hear from Idris Elba, producer Will Packer and visceral director Baltasar Kormákur as they spill all of the juicy details about this chaotic and blood-thirsty trip to the Savannah.
Idris Elba stars in a pulse-pounding new thriller about a father and his two teenage daughters who find themselves hunted by a massive rogue lion intent on proving that the Savannah has but one apex predator.
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, Russian Doll series, Maleficent), an old family friend and wildlife biologist. But what begins as a journey of healing jolts into a fearsome fight for survival when a lion, a survivor of blood-thirsty poachers who now sees all humans as the enemy, begins stalking them.
