Idris Elba leads survival thriller Beast, which sees him as Dr Nate Samuels recently widowed husband, who goes to a South African wildlife sanctuary where he met his wife for the first time.

He and his daughters visit the wildlife sanctuary but end up facing a lot more trouble than he had anticipated.

The official trailer, released by Universal Pictures, shows how Dr Nate and his family are stalked by a ferocious lion who is seeking vengeance against all humans after it was once attacked by poachers.

Iyana Halley, Leah Sava Jeffries, Sharlto Copley and Riley Keough also star in this thriller directed by Baltasar Kormakur. The director is known for films like 2 Guns, Everest, Adrift, and Contraband.

Beast was announced in 2020 and is based on the book Breaking In by Jaime Primak Sullivan. Ryan Engle has adapted the original story for screen.

Idris has previously appeared in several films, including Thor, Pacific Rim, The Dark Tower, Fast and Furious Presents: Hobbs and Shaw, and several others. He has also led the BBC detective series Luther, which will soon have a standalone movie.

The movie will be released in US theatres on August 19. An international release date is yet to be announced.
