The movie Primal sees Nicolas Cage in the middle of a showdown between a hunter, a Jaguar and an assassin, while being stuck on a ship. Yes, it sounds bonkers, because it is.
When Frank Walsh (Cage), a hunter and collector of rare and exotic animals, bags a priceless white jaguar for a zoo, he figures it’ll be smooth sailing to a big payday.
But the ship bearing Frank’s precious cargo has two predators caged in its hold: the cat, and a political assassin being extradited to the U.S. After the assassin breaks free – and then frees the jaguar – Frank feverishly stalks the ship’s cramped corridors in hot pursuit of his prey, right up until the thrilling, unpredictable climax.
Primal is directed by Nick Powell and also stars Michael Imperioli, Kevin Durand, Famke Janssen, LaMonica Garrett, and Tommy Walker.
