No animals were harmed in the making of this movie. 70 members of the cast and crew were.
An unprecedented — and wholly unpredictable — action-adventure, ROAR follows wildlife preservationist Hank (THE EXORCIST producer Noel Marshall in his sole and career-derailing turn as an actor and director), who lives harmoniously alongside a menagerie of over 100 untamed animals, including cheetahs, elephants, lions and tigers on a preservation in the African plains. When his wife and children arrive (real-life wife and THE BIRDS star Tippi Hedren, and step-daughter Melanie Griffith) for a visit, a long-brewing battle for dominance between the lions erupts and threatens their very lives.
“As a portrait of recklessness and beastly terror, it’s CITIZEN KANE.” — Esquire
