Creature Feature BEAST Australian Release Date Revealed

Idris Elba (THE SUICIDE SQUAD) goes to head-to-head with an apex predator in Universal Pictures‘ creature feature BEAST and it’ll stalk Aussie cinemas from August 25.

BEAST follows 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, DISTRICT 9), 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.

Iyana Halley (THE HATE U GIVE) plays Daniels’ 18-year-old daughter, Meredith, and Leah Sava Jeffries (EMPIRE) plays his 13-year-old, Norah.
