Lionsgate — sure, Lionsgate!!! — has launched the trailer for its killer lion film Rogue starring the delight of the Transformers franchise, Megan Fox. Wasn’t Rogue the identify of a killer crocodile film from just a little over a decade in the past? Yes, however so what? Animals cross rogue at all times! It’s a part of their herbal allure.
Now, Fox didn’t appear to revel in her time running with Decepticons and director Michael Bay, however she’s a lot more than mere eye sweet this time round, as Rogue reveals her taking part in a battle-hardened mercenary. Naturally.
As crew chief O’Hara, she leads a full of life squad of squaddies on a bold project to rescue hostages from their captors in a faraway a part of Africa. But because the project is going awry and the crew is stranded, O’Hara’s squad should face bloody, brutal encounters with a gang of rebels, in addition to a horde of ferocious lions who stalk them one at a time.
M.J. Bassett directed the movie from a script co-written with Isabel Bassett, and Philip Winchester co-stars along Jessica Sutton, Calli Taylor, Brandon Auret, Adam Deacon and Sisanda Henna.
Rogue might by no means unharness the real horror of a movie like Roar (google it), however it might really well end up to be a summer season sleeper within the vein of style hits The Shallows and Crawl, either one of which pitted a few of nature’s deadliest predators in opposition to robust younger ladies made up our minds to live on. Sure sufficient, the Rogue poster guarantees that the hunter will change into the prey, so we’ll have to peer whether or not a Fox can outsmart some lions which can be a hell of so much hungrier than Megatron ever was once.
Lionsgate will unharness the motion mystery on call for and virtual platforms on Aug. 28 ahead of it roars onto Blu-ray and DVD on Sept. 1. Watch the Rogue trailer under, and let me know within the feedback phase in case you assume Fox has what it takes to drag off a job like this, or if she’s just a little out of her part right here.
