The video, which you can check out below, introduces Elba’s character as a father fighting for his and his daughters’ survival against a massive lion.

Beast is directed by Baltasar Kormákur from a screenplay written by Ryan Engle based on an original story by Jaime Primak Sullivan. Joining Elba are Iyana Halley (The Hate U Give, This is Us series) and Leah Sava Jeffries (Percy Jackson and the Olympians).

“The film is 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,” reads the synopsis. “Elba plays Dr. Nate Samuels, 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. 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.”

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, and by James Lopez, president of Will Packer Productions. It is executive produced by Jaime Primak Sullivan and Bernard Bellew.
