The film will have its world premiere at the 2018 Toronto International Film Festival. Check out the movie poster in the gallery below!
Hold the Dark is an adaptation of William Giraldi’s novel Hold the Dark. It is an intense tale of fate, family, and revenge set in the remote Alaskan wilderness. When a child is taken from his village by a pack of wolves, an expert hunter is summoned to track and destroy them. His mission leads him down an increasingly dark and shocking path as he confronts the cruelty of nature and his own failures as a man. With the child’s grief-crazed father closing in behind him and a fierce, unforgiving landscape ahead, the question becomes, who is really being hunted? The New York Times has called the novel “extraordinary an unnerving and intimate portrayal of nature gone awry,” and the Boston Globe proclaims that “it stands out as one of the decade’s best books.”
Hold the Dark is directed by Saulnier and is written by his longtime creative partner Macon Blair. Neil Kopp, Vincent Savino, Anish Savjani, Eva Maria Daniels, Russell Ackerman, and John Schoenfelder produced the film.
Hold the Dark will be distributed by the popular streaming service on September 28.
