In the prehistoric past, a young man struggles to return home after being separated from his tribe during a buffalo hunt. He finds a similarly lost wolf companion and starts a friendship that would change humanity.
An epic adventure set in the last Ice Age, Alpha is a fascinating, visually stunning story that shines a light on the origins of man's best friend. While on his first hunt with his tribe's most elite group, a young man is injured and must learn to survive alone in the wilderness. After the young man reluctantly tames a lone wolf abandoned by its pack, the pair learn to rely on each other and become unlikely allies, enduring countless dangers and overwhelming odds in order to find their way home before winter arrives.
The theatrical release was delayed for an entire year. Originally slated for September 2017 release, the film was moved to March 2018. In December 2017, the film was moved once again, this time to September 2018. The trailer was released in July 2017, more than an entire year before the actual film's release -- a rarity nowadays.

The big cat in the movie is supposed to be a Machairodus. However, its teeth are far too large for this genus, looking more like the sabres of Smilodon (which was only ever found in the Americas). See more »
I actually enjoyed this, it kept me guessing for quite a bit and as no major stars your not sure who's going to make it. Special effects and scenery were good and enjoyable to the end. I would say one of the best movies I've seen this year that's not superstar budget. Reminded me a bit of Apocalypto, that sort of movie
