'Beasts of the Southern Wild' Trailer: Sundance Favorite Gets a Giant Boar-Inclusive Trailer
Beasts of the Southern Wild took home the dramatic Grand Jury Prize at this year's Sundance, where it was lauded by critics who often compared the film's contemplative naturalism to the work of Terrence Malick, which is pretty high praise, because people love that guy. As per the official Sundance description, the apocalyptic film focuses on "Hushpuppy, an intrepid six-year-old girl, lives with her father, Wink, in 'the Bathtub,' a southern Delta community at the edge of the world." Beasts comes from first-time feature director Benh Zeitlin, and stars a cast of non-actors led by young Quvenzhané Wallis, but it lacks in notable names and star power, it makes up for in horned, prehistoric boar things. Because did I mention this has those? Yeah, that's what that thing behind the girl is. Somehow those work into this thing, too. Have a look in the trailer below.
