Beyond the Reach gives Michael Douglas a high-powered rifle and an insane sense of entitlement — not a good combination. Douglas plays a rich guy who hires a desert local (Jeremy Irvine) to lead him on a hunting expedition. But when Douglas shoots the wrong target, things go bad really quick. Soon Douglas is hunting Irvine, but the local kid has some pretty good tricks up his sleeve. See how the two battle in the Beyond the Reach trailer.
This looks like great b-movie material, especially with an old, mean Michael Douglas in the lead. It’s been a while since we’ve seen him play this sort of shark, and the construction of this trailer suggests that the movie really has little on its mind beyond the cat and mouse game between the two men. And that’s great; why make things more complicated? We’ll watch this in a heartbeat.
Yahoo has the trailer. Written by Stephen Susco and directed by Jean-Baptiste Léonetti, Beyond the Reach will be in theaters and on VOD on April 17.
