From Jeremy Saulnier, the acclaimed director of "Green Room" and "Blue Ruin," comes a new suspenseful thriller that takes viewers to the edge of civilization and straight into the heart of darkness.

Check out the first official trailer for "Hold the Dark," a spine-chilling Netflix thriller set in the remote Alaskan wilderness, in which Emmy-nominated "Westworld" star Jeffrey Wright plays a reclusive wolf expert who is called in to investigate the brutal death of a young boy who was presumably killed by a pack of wolves -- only to find himself caught in the middle of an unfolding murder mystery involving the boy's grief-stricken mother (Riley Keough), the boy's Iraq War veteran father (Alexander Skarsgard), and an indigenous community riddled with secrets.

Based on the novel of the same name by William Giraldi, which was adapted for the screen by Saulnier's frequent collaborator, actor/screenwriter Macon Blair, who also co-stars, the Netflix film also features James Badge Dale (Only the Brave, Iron Man 3) as a local Alaskan Sheriff.

While also scheduled to premiere next month at this year's Toronto International Film Festival, "Hold the Dark" will start streaming Friday, September 28, only on Netflix.

Retired naturalist and wolf expert Russell Core (JEFFREY WRIGHT) journeys to the edge of civilization in northern Alaska at the pleading of Medora Slone (RILEY KEOUGH), a young mother whose son was killed by a pack of wolves. As Core attempts to help Medora track down the wolves who took her son, a strange and dangerous relationship develops between the two lonely souls.

But when Medora's husband Vernon (ALEXANDER SKARSGARD) returns home from the Iraq War, the news of his child's death ignites a violent chain of events. As local cop, Donald Marium (JAMES BADGE DALE), races to stop Vernon's vengeful rampage, Core is forced on a perilous odyssey into the heart of darkness.
