Having already picked up rave reviews at the Sundance Film Festival, Beasts of the Southern Wild looks set for a UK release, although no date has yet been set.

Centring on a young girl (Quvenzhané Wallis), who seeks to protect her home town and father from an upcoming apocalyptic storm, the film has a definite Terence Malick feel to it, with sublimely beautiful visuals just in this trailer having us excited to see what else director Benh Zeitlin has come up with in the finished film. What we can see from this promo is the appearance of mysterious tusked beasts, putting a film fantasy spin on this one. It’s a mesmerising trailer for sure, and one which we can’t stop watching.

There’s already murmurs of Oscar buzz around this one, and while that may be a little premature, we can’t wait to see the film that has gotten so many critics talking already.
