Watch the first ten minutes of Taika Waititi’s Hunt for the Wilderpeople
Next week, Sony Pictures Home Entertainment is bringing home to DVD writer and director Taika Waititi‘s exceptionally well-reviewed adventure Hunt for the Wilderpeople. As a special treat, ComingSoon.net is pleased today to present the film’s first ten minutes. In the player below, you can take a look at the opening of Wilderpeople and get a sense of what makes the film so special.
Raised on hip-hop and foster care, defiant city kid Ricky gets a fresh start in the New Zealand countryside. He quickly finds himself at home with his new foster family: the loving Aunt Bella, the cantankerous Uncle Hec, and dog Tupac. When a tragedy strikes that threatens to ship Ricky to another home, both he and Hec go on the run in the bush. As a national manhunt ensues, the newly branded outlaws must face their options: go out in a blaze of glory or overcome their differences and survive as a family.
Hunt for the Wilderpeople stars Sam Neill, Julian Dennison, Rima Te Wiata, Rhys Darby, Rachel House, Oscar Kightley, Tioreore Ngatai-Melbourne, Troy Kingi, Cohen Holloway, Stan Walker, Mike Minogue, Hamish Parkinson and Lloyd Scott.
Taika Waititi, whose other past films include Boy, Eagle vs. Shark and What We Do in the Shadows, is next paying a visit to the Marvel Cinematic Universe. He’s currently in Australia, filming next fall’s Thor: Ragnarok. Look for it to hit the big screen November 3, 2017.
You can use Amazon to preorder the Hunt for the Wilderpeople DVD (which releases Tuesday, September 27). Special features include a commentary track with Waititi, Neill and Dennison as well as a behind the scenes featurette and a blooper reel. You can also rent or buy the film via Digital HD right now.
