Jimmy Henderson’s The Prey released the new red band trailer ahead of the film’s release in late August. The indie thriller film packed with non-stop action opens in virtual theaters on Friday, August 21 in Los Angeles (Laemmle), New York and major cities (Alamo On Demand) and Philadelphia (Film Society); followed by VOD in US & Canada on August 25.
In The Prey, which is loosely based on Richard Connell’s story of survival and adventure The Most Dangerous Game, undercover Chinese cop Xin (newcomer Gu Shangwei), is on a secret international mission when a surprise raid puts him in a remote Cambodian jungle prison that plays by its own rules. Ruthless warden (Vithaya Pansringarm of Only God Forgives ) sells prisoners as human prey for rich hunters looking for thrills in the jungle. After years of hunting down ruthless criminals, Xin suddenly finds himself running for his life. If Xin manages to survive this sadistic game, he’ll walk out of the jungle the same way he came in: as a free man. If Xin fails, he’s just another hunting trophy.
