Beast Trailer

Festival Favorite “Beast” Gets First Trailer

A new trailer has just been released for Michael Pearce’s festival favorite Beast.

The film, which screened at both TIFF and Sundance this past festival season, offers up a unique and moody look at a young girl who finds her head and heart on different sides of a string of brutal murders.

Moll, a 27 year-old who feels suffocated with her current living situation, falls madly in love with Pascal, a free-spirited stranger.  As the two grow together, Moll’s world expands, creating an internal pull between the controls of her family and her new lover.  But when Pascal finds himself as the key suspect in a string of brutal murders, Moll must make decisions that will forever change her life. 

Based on the trailer, Pearce’s debut presents a mysterious, slow-burn style of storytelling.  Beast has received a wealth of accolades for both Pearce and the film’s lead, Jessie Buckley, making us anxious for its theatrical release on May 11.


About Stephen Davis

Stephen Davis
I owe this hobby/career to the one and only Stephanie Peterman who, while interning at Fox, told me that I had too many opinions and irrelevant information to keep it all bottled up inside. I survived my first rated R film, Alive, at the ripe age of 8, it took me months to grasp the fact that Julia Roberts actually died at the end of Steel Magnolias, and I might be the only person alive who actually enjoyed Sorority Row…for its comedic value of course. While my friends can drink you under the table, I can outwatch you when it comes iconic, yet horrid 80s films like Adventures in Babysitting and Troop Beverly Hills. I have no shame when it comes to what I like, and if you have a problem with that, then we’ll settle it on the racquetball court. I see too many movies to actually win any film trivia contest, so don’t waste your first pick on me. My friends rent movies from my bookcase shelves, and one day I do plan to start charging. I long to live in LA, where my movie obsession will actually help me fit in, but for now I am content with my home in Austin. I prefer indies to blockbusters, Longhorns to Sooners and Halloween to Friday the 13th. I miss the classics, as well as John Ritter, and I hope to one day sit down and interview the amazing Kate Winslet.
