BEAST, a movie about a giant lion that kills people, is available on demand and is a good choice for fans of monster movies.
Universal Pictures is making it much easier to watch the recent monster movie Beast, in which Idris Elba fights a huge lion in Africa that kills people. Even though the movie’s chances at the box office are (unfortunately) getting worse, it is now available On Demand, which means you can stream it from the comfort of your couch at several digital retailers. I’m here to tell you that I think this is worth your time if you have $20 to spend.
The movie can be rented or bought from almost any digital store, like Prime Video, Apple TV, Vudu, DirecTV, YouTube, and many others. It is currently available for rent on premium VOD, which costs $20. It can also be bought for $25 if you are sure you will want to watch the lion vs man shenanigans more than once. The plot summary for Beast goes like this:
“Elba plays Dr Nate Samuels, a recently widowed man who goes back to South Africa, where he met his wife, on a long-planned trip with their daughters to a game reserve managed by Martin Battles (Sharlto Copley, Russian Doll series, Maleficent), an old family friend and wildlife biologist. But what starts as a healing journey turns into a terrifying fight for survival when a lion, a survivor of bloodthirsty.
For this reason, Hollywood didn’t release many movies in late summer and early fall this year. Before Halloween Ends comes out in the middle of October, there aren’t many big movies. But Beast came out at the end of August. Universal’s serious attempt to make a new movie to bring in more business. So far, the movie has only made $48 million, even though it was said to have cost $36 million. Now, it’s up to the people at home to find out about it, so it doesn’t fail at the box office.
I don’t usually tell movie studios what to do, but I think this movie may have been poorly marketed. As someone who saw Beast the first weekend it came out and loved it; I think they could have played up the creature feature aspect and marketed it more to horror fans, like you, instead of going for a wider audience. So, I’m pretty sure that once this one is easier to find, many people will check it out and like it. I beg you to vote with your money here so that we can get more monster movies on the big screen in the future. Money is the only consistent language in Hollywood, which is a shame.
Baltasar Kormákur was in charge of making the movie, and Ryan Engle wrote the script. Sharlto Copley, Iyana Halley, and Leah Sava Jeffries are also in the movie.
