Beasts of the Southern Wild

Ever since the film debuted at the Sundance Film Festival back in January, there's been a lot of buzz for the charming, unique indie film Beasts of the Southern Wild from director Benh Zeitlin from a script he co-wrote with Lucy Alibar. The movie features a cast of unknowns led by the precocious and amazing Quvenzhané Wallis, not to mention Dwight Henry as her tough-loving father Wink. But aside from the great performances, there's also some mystery surrounding the mythical creatures called aurochs in the film. A new featurette takes a closer look at these creatures, complete with a few clips from the film itself. Enjoy!

Here's the new featurette for Benh Zeitlin's Beasts of the Southern Wild, originally from Apple:

Waters gonna rise up, wild animals gonna rerun from the grave, and everything south of the levee is goin' under, in this tale of a six year old named Hushpuppy, who lives with her dad at the edge of the world. Following a cast of unknowns led by the amazing Quvenzhané Wallis, and featuring Dwight Henry as her father Wink, the film is directed by Benh Zeitlin from a script he wrote with Lucy Alibar. The film won the Grand Jury Prize: Dramatic at the 2012 Sundance Film Festival. Fox Searchlight brought Beasts of the Southern Wild to theaters on June 27th.

I wouldn't be surprised if the wild hogs of north america turned into those creatures in the near future. They're already the size of bears in some states

Using a pig with plastic horns taped to its face as a creature = boring, lazy design, lack of imagination

Haha. You certainly are arrogant. And probably all of the things you just mentioned: boring, lazy, and lacking imagination.
