Beast Idris Elba Trailer

The Ghost And The Darkness has been reimagined for a whole new generation in Idris Elba’s man-eating Lion flick BEAST

The devil has returned to the savannah. Universal Pictures has dropped the gripping first trailer for Idris Elba’s BEAST. The movie, which arrives in UK cinemas on August 26th features a massive rogue lion intent on proving that the savannah has but one apex predator. And entering the food chain is Idris Elba and his two daughters. Check out the trailer below.


The film looks every bit as shocking as Stephen Hopkins’ sensational 1996 cult classic ‘The Ghost And The Darkness‘ starring Michael Douglas and Val Kilmer. The movie was a retelling of Lieutenant Colonel John Henry Patterson’s battle against two man-eating lions responsible for killing and eating countless railroad workers. The incredible true story has captivated legions of mystery lovers around the world, and Beast looks every bit as chilling. There is something truly terrifying about humans being thrust back into the food chain. And that, coupled with the predator stalking its prey aspects makes Beast one of the standout movies of the summer.

The Ghost and the Darkness -The Hunters


Idris Elba (The Suicide Squad) 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.
