The Hunter Trailer

"You are looking for something most believe is extinct." Another new teaser trailer discovered via SlashFilm for an Australian film announced as one of the films premiering at the Toronto Film Festival. The Hunter, directed by Daniel Nettheim, stars Willem Dafoe as Martin David, a mercenary sent from Europe by a biotech company to the Tasmanian wilderness on a dramatic hunt for the last Tasmanian Tiger. The cast includes Sam Neill and Frances O'Connor. It's described as a "powerful psychological drama" and has some incredible cinematography. Very short teaser trailer, but I'm definitely going to see this. Take a look!

Watch the first official trailer for Daniel Nettheim's The Hunter, via YouTube:

Based on the acclaimed novel by Julia Leigh, The Hunter is a powerful psychological drama that tells the story of Martin (Willem Dafoe), a mercenary sent from Europe on a dramatic hunt for the last Tasmanian Tiger. Against his wishes, Martin's only option is to stay at a base camp with the wife and spirited children of a missing zoologist. Drawn deeper into the wild landscape in his search for the mysterious Tiger, Martin's unexpected connection to the family and the majestic wilderness around him forces him to confront the reality of his work. Directed by Australian filmmaker Daniel Nettheim, from a script by Alice Addison. We'll keep you updated, as it doesn't have a US distributor, but is premiering at the Toronto Film Fest in the fall.

That was almost as annoying a trailer as Gimpy Fee... I mean Happy Feet 2.

That was one of the worst calls i have ever heard. Trailer looks great. That is all

Gimpy Feet? I think that pathetic attempt at humour sums up the validity of this guy's opinion 😛
