The first trailer for The Hunter has premiered and we’ll give it this much: It is a refreshingly original idea for a film. Willem Dafoe plays a mercenary who is the best at what he does. His latest contract has him flying to the jungles of Tasmania in search of a beast that is supposedly extinct. Dafoe’s charge is to bring the animal back alive so the mysterious corporation that hired him can harness its DNA.
The Hunter also stars Alcatraz’s Sam Neill and arrives on VOD March 2 and in theaters April 6.
