Beast 2022 is an upcoming American survival thriller film directed by Baltasar Kormákur and based on a story by Jaime Primak Sullivan. The movie stars Idris Elba as a man with his teenage daughter trying to survive a lion attack in Africa.
What Is the Story of the Movie Beast?
The story focuses on the protagonist played by Idris Elba, who plays a widowed husband and father, Dr. Nate Samuels. In the film, he has two teenage daughters who are hunted by a massive rogue lion, whose intent is on proving that the savannah has but one apex predator.
As the movie Beast 2022 progresses, the mother of the daughters dies, and Samuels’s family doesn’t know what to do with their lives. Since then, there has been an apparent rift between them. Dr. Nate Samuels thought that if he took the girls on a trip to Africa, his family could get back together and have a relaxing and fun time walking through the African savannah.
However, in the supposedly once-in-a-lifetime trip of the family of Samuels, while standing in a game reserve, with the help of their old Family friend in the African wilderness, Martin Battles, they find themselves on a journey of healing jolts into a fearsome fight for survival.
It starts when their trip to look at nature is cut short when they find a badly hurt man on the road. The ma is in shock and keeps repeating the word “devil.” They go to a nearby village to look for signs of this “devil,” and are shocked to find several dead bodies all over the place.
They checked what might have caused the death of everyone, and the bite marks and tracks looked like a lion had made them. Later on, their survival starts when a ferocious, man-hunting survivor of the bloodthirsty poacher lion begins stalking and attacking them.
