Trailer for ‘Beasts of the Southern Wild’ has arrived!

Beasts of the Southern Wild, the movie that took Sundance by storm this past January, has been selected to compete in the Un Certain Regard section of the Cannes Film Festival, so it was only a matter of time before we got a better look at the film. The newly released trailer after the jump shows a lot of the elements people raved about at Sundance: beautiful imagery, mythical elements blended with stark reality, and a breakout performance from lead actress Quvenzhane Wallis.

Beasts of the Southern Wild is written/directed by Behn Zietlin and will be released on June 27th.

From IMDB: “Faced with her father’s fading health and environmental changes that release an army of prehistoric creatures called aurochs, six-year-old Hushpuppy leaves her Delta-community home in search of her mother.”
