Hold The Dark trailer: Jeremy Saulnier’s Netflix film pits Jeffrey Wright against nature
Jeremy Saulnier has quickly developed a loyal following after his second and third films - Blue Ruin and Green Room - struck a genre nerve and the trailer for his highly anticipated fourth, Hold the Dark, has not long been released by Netflix. The film will make its début at TIFF next month before landing on the platform a couple of weeks later. To get a taster of what's in store, check out the trailer for Hold the Dark above right now.
At the start of another pitiless winter, wolves have taken three children from the remote Alaskan village of Keelut, including the six-year-old son of Medora and Vernon Slone. Wolf expert Russell Core is called in to investigate these killings and discovers an unholy truth harboured by Medora before she disappears.
When her husband returns home to discover his boy dead and his wife missing, he begins a maniacal pursuit that cuts a bloody swath across the frozen landscape. With the help of a local police detective, Core attempts to find Medora before her husband does, setting in motion a deadly chain of events.
Saulnier's film is based on William Giraldi's novel of the same name and the cast also features Alexander Skarsgård, Riley Keough, James Badge Dale and, as usual, Macon Blair.
Hold the Dark arrives on Netflix on September 28th 2018.
