Universal Pictures has released a poster and trailer for River Wild, the upcoming remake of Curtis Hanson’s 1994 Meryl Streep adventure thriller.
Directed by Ben Ketai, the film stars Leighton Meester and Taran Killam as siblings Joey and Gray, who along with their childhood friend Trevor (Adam Brody) embark on a white-water rafting weekend but after an accident occurs with one of the other tourists, Joey and Gray soon learn that their old friend cannot be trusted and their trip turns into a terrifying fight for survival.
Joey (Leighton Meester) fears there could be trouble ahead after her brother Gray (Taran Killam) invites Trevor (Adam Brody), a childhood friend with a troubled past, on their whitewater rafting adventure with two tourists. Once they become stranded in raging rapids, the thrill-seeking trip quickly turns from exciting to utterly terrifying as the rafters are trapped in a desperate fight for their lives, all while someone seems intent on sabotage to ensure shocking secrets stay buried. To survive the wild river, Joey will have to face her fears, and everyone will have to develop killer instincts before they’re torn apart by deception aboard the raft, or by deadly waters wreaking havoc all around them.
River Wild arrives on Blu-ray and digital on August 1st.
