Alpha is finally almost here

Filed under: Alpha,Movies — Razib Khan @ 8:41 pm

I’ve wondered whatever happened to Alpha, the film about a Solutrean boy? It was supposed to come out much earlier in the year, but they pushed it back to August. So it will be competing with Crazy Rich Asians this weekend. Not sure if I’ll end up catching it, but it seems like they are making the new trailer a bit more “feel good.”

I do have to admit: it’s strange to realize that for the vast majority of our species’ existence we were just hunters, like the ones depicted in this film. Unfortunately I doubt they’ll illustrate much about Soultrean society, even if conjectural, because the film is mostly about a lone boy with a tamed wolf.
