It's Idris Elba vs a Lion in 'Beast' Coming Out on PH Cinemas August 24, 2022

It’s a battle for survival between man and beast in the survival thriller film "Beast". The film headlines Idris Elba as Dr. Nate who travels back to South Africa with his daughters only to face the most insurmountable challenge of their lives - to make it out alive from fangs of the rogue and most lethal lion in the savannah. 

Dr. Nate Daniels (Idris Elba) met his wife in South Africa and both moved on to build a life in the US until her death. Determined to pick up the broken pieces, Dr. Nate brings his daughters Meredith (Iyana Halley) and Norah (Leah Jeffries) back to Africa to honor their mother. They are welcomed by Dr. Nate’s long-time friend Martin (Sharlto Copley), a game reserve manager who is also a wildlife biologist and ardent anti-poacher. Everything is going as expected but gets derailed by an apex predator’s attack on Dr. Nate’s family. Trapped in a game reserve with only his instincts to guide them, Nate has to survive for his girls to live. If that is to happen, Meredith and Norah must learn to trust him again.

Elba, for his part is eager for audiences to experience a new kind of thrill that Beast has to offer. “I think it’s a first,” Elba says. “We’ve seen films where the antagonist is a beast or an animal and our heroes are being chased, but this has a dynamic that merges both a family dynamic that we are invested in alongside the thriller aspects. The thrill ride doesn’t stop.”

 A Universal Pictures International release, Beast will open in Philippine cinemas on August 24, 2022.
