Daniel Radcliffe struggles to survive the horrors of the Amazon rainforest in the newly released trailer for the survival thriller "Jungle."

Based on a best-selling memoir, the film tells the harrowing true story of 22-year-old Israeli backpacker Yossi Ghinsberg (portrayed by Radcliffe) who, in the early 1980s, embarked on an adventurous excursion into the Bolivian jungle, only to later find himself separated from his friends when a horrific rafting accident tossed him down the river.

Australian horror director Greg Mclean, of "Wolf Creek" and "The Belko Experiment" fame, helms the heart-pounding thriller, which co-stars Alex Russell (Chronicle), Joel Jackson (Peter Allen: Not the Boy Next Door) and Thomas Kretschmann (Avengers: Age of Ultron, King Kong).

"Jungle," written by Justin Monjo (INXS: Never Tear Us Apart), will be making its world premiere in August as the opening movie at the 2017 Melbourne International Film Festival. As of yet, the film doesn't have an official U.S. release date.

In the early 1980s, 22-year-old Israeli backpacker Yossi Ghinsberg and two friends – Swiss teacher Marcus Stamm and American photographer Kevin Gale – set off from the Bolivian city of La Paz on what was supposed to be the adventure of a lifetime. Leading the way into the uncharted Amazon was an Austrian expat named Karl Ruprechter, who had met the friends just days before and claimed to be familiar with the region. But their dream trip soon turned into a wilderness nightmare from which not all of the men returned.
