Kodi Smit-McPhee is getting pretty good at enduring harsh conditions. After surviving the apocalypse in The Road and defeating the wilderness of the old west in Slow West, the actor will set off on his most dangerous adventure yet in Alpha. The film, which follows Smit-McPhee as he is presumed dead, abandoned, injured and forced to fight for survival with nothing but a loyal wolf by his side. Oh, and did I mention that this all takes place 20,000 years ago.
The first trailer for Alpha just landed online and promises a thoroughly entertaining, visually epic and emotional adventure. Check out the trailer below:
An epic adventure set in the last Ice Age. Europe, 20,000 years ago. While on his first hunt with his tribe’s most elite group, a young man is injured and left for dead. Awakening to find himself broken and alone — he must learn to survive and navigate the harsh and unforgiving wilderness. Reluctantly taming a lone wolf abandoned by its pack, the pair learn to rely on each other and become unlikely allies, enduring countless dangers and overwhelming odds in order to find their way home before the deadly winter arrives.
