Beast is a new thriller about a father and his two teenage daughters Yana Halley (The Hate U Give, This is Us series) and Leah Sava Jeffries (Percy Jackson and the Olympians), who find themselves hunted by a massive rogue lion intent on proving that the savannah has but one apex predator. Elba plays Dr. Nate Samuels, 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. 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.
Beast is directed by Baltasar Kormákur from a screenplay written by Ryan Engle based on an original story by Jaime Primak Sullivan.
