Universal Pictures on Wednesday dropped off the official trailer for its upcoming survival thriller Beast, starring Idris Elba.

Elba stars in the role of Dr. Nate Daniels, a newly-widowed husband who travels back to South Africa, where he first met his wife, with his two daughters — 18-year-old Meredith (Iyana Halley) and 13-year-old Norah (Leah Sava Jeffries). There, they visit a game reserve run by family friend and wildlife biologist Martin Battles (Sharlto Copley), where things begin to take a bloody turn.

“What begins as a journey of healing jolts into a fearsome fight for survival when a lion, a survivor of blood-thirsty poachers who now sees all humans as the enemy, begins stalking them,” the official synopsis reads. The trailer previews the chaos that ensues, with clips revealing a village slaughtered by the ruthless lion and Elba fighting against the vicious animal himself.

Beast is directed by Baltasar Kormákur, who previously helmed Everest, based on a script written by Ryan Engle from an original story by Jaime Primak Sullivan. Sullivan is executive producing the project alongside Bernard Bellew.

Beast premieres in theaters on August 19. Watch the official trailer above.

Elsewhere in entertainment, watch Chris Evans and Ryan Gosling in a new trailer for The Gray Man.
