Trailer Alert – “ROAR”
When this came across my desk (my iPhone) this morning I wasn’t sure what to think of it. These people living on their own in the middle of nowhere is crazy enough, now through in a few hundred giant jungle cats and you are bordering on insanity. At first, I thought this would be a feel good “nature vs. nurture” type of animal movie. The kind that shows these vicious beasts could be trusted….I thought that until “If Disney made The Swiss Family Robinson into a snuff film” critique. Sure enough, this movie isn’t at all what I thought. Here’s my question though, how in the name of Bill Paxton do you control that many wild animals on the set of a movie? I feel like 99% of this movie was freestyled and the actors were just trying to stay alive while on the set. Also, how the HELL do you insure a movie like this? I can see the proposal to the insurance company now…”Yeah so it’s this movie in the middle of the jungle and we have 150+ lions and tigers attacking humans……..CGI? No, they’re real lions and tigers.”
“No animals were harmed in the making of this movie”, ok, but what about humans?
Here is a live look at some behind the scenes/actual footage from the movie. Something tells me the blood is real.
