Alpha — Trailer


added: Tue, Jul 18th '17

A boy hunter finds himself on a path to becoming a fierce warrior in the first trailer for "Alpha," a prehistoric epic that takes place 20,000 years in the past.

Starring Kodi Smit-McPhee, who played the young Nightcrawler in "X-Men: Apocalypse," the upcoming movie is a first feature solo effort by director Albert Hughes, who is best known for co-directing the films "Menace II Society" and "The Book of Eli" with his twin brother, Allen.

(BTW, Allen just directed the acclaimed 4-part HBO documentary series "The Defiant Ones" about the partnership between Jimmy Iovine and Dr. Dre.)

"Alpha" follows a tribal boy (Smit-McPhee) as he goes on his first hunt. But when his clan is besieged by wild buffalos, the boy is injured and thought to be dead. Now left behind to fend for himself, the boy embarks on an epic adventure to reunite with his people. Along the way, he befriends a wild wolf.

The film, which also stars Johannes Haukur Johannesson (HBO's Game of Thrones), Leonor Varela (Blade II), Mercedes de la Zerda (Hemlock Grove), and Natassia Malthe (Elektra), is due to hit theaters on March 2, 2018.

An epic adventure set in the last Ice Age. Europe, 20,000 years ago. While on his first hunt with his tribe’s most elite group, a young man is injured and left for dead. Awakening to find himself broken and alone -- he must learn to survive and navigate the harsh and unforgiving wilderness. Reluctantly taming a lone wolf abandoned by its pack, the pair learn to rely on each other and become unlikely allies, enduring countless dangers and overwhelming odds in order to find their way home before the deadly winter arrives.
