Universal City, California, September 30, 2022 – Idris Elba (Fast & Furious Presents: Hobbs & Shaw) gives a “forcefully magnetic” (Sara Michelle Fetters, Moviefreak.com) performance in the action-thriller BEAST available to own on Digital on October 7th, 2022, and on Blu-ray and DVD on October 11th, 2022, from Universal Pictures Home Entertainment.  Experience the epic adventure of this true fight for family in this “classic man-vs-nature” (Jake Coyle, AP) story that will keep fans on the edge of their seat.  Bring the film home with behind-the-scenes featurettes diving into the creation of The Beast, a deeper look into the South African filming locations, and much more to get fully immersed into the world of BEAST.

From the director of Everest (Baltasar Kormáku), pulse-pounding BEAST follows recently widowed father Dr. Nate Samuels (Elba) who returns to South Africa with his two daughters Meredith (Iyana Halley; Wayward, “This Is Us”) and Norah (Leah Jeffries; “Rel,” Faith Under Fire) to visit an old friend, Martin Battles (Sharlto Copley; “Russian Doll,” Ted K) on a game reserve. What begins as a journey of healing turns into a fearsome fight for survival as his family find themselves hunted by a massive, rogue lion intent on proving that the savannah has but one apex predator.
