Trailer – The Hunter

Finally, an Australian film that’s not about rape, murder, incest or manic depression. At least none of that shows up in the new trailer for ‘The Hunter’.

Based on the acclaimed novel by Julia Leigh, ‘The Hunter’ is a powerful psychological drama that tells the story of Martin (Willem Dafoe), a mercenary sent from Europe by a mysterious biotech company to the Tasmanian wilderness on a dramatic hunt for the last Tasmanian Tiger.

The cinematography looks amazing and it’s good to see Dafoe mixing it with the likes of Sam Neil and Francis O’Conner.

‘The Hunter’ hits Australian cinemas 6 October 2011 and will premiere at the Toronto Film Festival in September.
