Netflix have just released the trailer for Jeremy Saulnier’s new psychological thriller, Hold The Dark, and you can watch it right here:
Retired naturalist and wolf expert Russell Core (JEFFREY WRIGHT) journeys to the edge of civilization in northern Alaska at the pleading of Medora Slone (RILEY KEOUGH), a young mother whose son was killed by a pack of wolves. As Core attempts to help Medora track down the wolves who took her son, a strange and dangerous relationship develops between the two lonely souls.
But when Medora’s husband Vernon (ALEXANDER SKARSGARD) returns home from the Iraq War, the news of his child’s death ignites a violent chain of events. As local cop, Donald Marium (JAMES BADGE DALE), races to stop Vernon’s vengeful rampage, Core is forced on a perilous odyssey into the heart of darkness.
The cast is stacked and the film looks great, which is unsurprising considering Saulnier hasn’t yet made a bad one. Here’s a poster:
Looks suitably chilly. The “frost on the moustache” look is pretty tasteful, too. Here are a couple of stills to whet your appetite until the global launch of Hold The Dark on September 28, when we’ll have our review ready to go.
