Official Trailer for David Michod's Fantastic Animal Kingdom
Sony Pictures Classics has debuted the official US trailer on Apple for David Michôd's Animal Kingdom, not to be confused with the classic Disney theme park of the same name. Animal Kingdom is actually a truly incredible Australian film about a family (a teenage kid and his uncles and grandmother) of armed robbers from Melbourne's underworld. I watched it again recently as I interviewed director David Michôd and it's an amazing film, especially for a first-time director. There's a good chance lead actress Jacki Weaver may get an Oscar nom. We featured an international trailer in March but this new trailer is definitely worth watching.

Animal Kingdom is written and directed by first-time Australian filmmaker David Michôd. Excerpt from the Sundance website: "Wielding a formidable cinematic lexicon, writer/director David Michôd shows complete command of every frame as he shifts between simmering intensity and gut-wrenching drama. There isn't a false note in the film as it follows through on the tantalizing promise displayed in his shorts and unleashes a fierce new voice in Australian cinema." After debuting at the Sundance Film Festival, Sony Pictures Classics acquired the film and is now bringing Animal Kingdom to limited theaters on August 13th in the summer.
