Alpha Trailer

"An enemy will become an ally." Sony Pictures has unveiled a trailer for an epic new action thriller titled Alpha, formerly known as The Solutrean (which is a very weird title so it makes sense they changed it). This is the latest feature film from Albert Hughes, who last directed The Book of Eli in 2010, and it's set during the last Ice Age - 20,000 years ago (kind of like Emmerich's 10,000 BC). This epic adventure follows the story of Zeta, played by Kodi Smit-McPhee, a young man injured on a bison hunt left for dead. He befriends a lone wolf and together they figure out how to survive in this harsh environment. So basically it's The Revenant meets 10,000 BC. The full cast includes Natassia Malthe, Leonor Varela, Jóhannes Haukur Jóhannesson, Mercedes de la Zerda, and Jens Hultén. I really, really adore wolves, so I'm already into this. But this trailer is a bit awkward, not sure if it's going to be really good or not, hard to tell.

Here's the first two trailers (+ teaser poster) for Albert Hughes' Alpha, originally from USA Today:

Alpha Movie Trailer

Europe, 20,000 years ago. While on his first hunt, an initiation to his tribe’s most elite group, a young man, Zeta, is injured and left for dead after a bison hunt goes horribly wrong. Awaking to find himself broken, alone, and miles from his village – he must learn to survive and navigate the harsh and unforgiving wilderness. Reluctantly taming a lone wolf, Alpha, abandoned by its pack, the pair learn to rely on each other to hunt and become unlikely allies, enduring countless dangers and overwhelming odds in order to find their way home before the deadly winter arrives. Alpha is directed by American filmmaker Albert Hughes, of Menace II Society, Dead Presidents, From Hell (these three with his brother), and The Book of Eli previously. The screenplay is written by Dan Wiedenhaupt; based on a story by Albert Hughes. Sony releases Alpha in theaters everywhere starting March 2nd, 2018 early next year. First impression?

      Hmmm, you also believe the dinosaurs never existed either, correct?
  • This looks damn interesting, thanks for the tip! Loved book of Eli by the way, so looking forward to this...
  • shiboleth
    Yup, it was tough back then. No internet, no central heating, ugly stuff ... However, I like different kind of fantasy ...

    I liked this trailer and love the 20,000 yrs. ago period. It's certainly derivative of several films like Reverant and 10,000 B.C., both which I sort of liked...and we've several young guy and his faithful dog thing, but so what? If done right it could be really good. I liked Hughes Book of Eli; didn't care much for the 3 he made with his brother, so I'll give this one a chance. Can't hurt. When it comes to cable, that is. Nothing can get me in a filled theatre these days.
    That's cool, but he would be dinner. Wolves give no f---ks.

      You are clearly unaware of how dogs were domesticated.

    This seems an awful lot like W. Bruce Cameron's novel "The Dog Master". You know? That guy who also wrote the book "A dog's purpose" was based on. Now, regardless the past adaptation of Cameron's novel was bad, this one seems pretty good, and as a fan of the original Artist,I really hoped they would aknowledge him, instead of sayin it's based on an Albert Hughes Story. Nothing against that man, just sayin.
